Course Summary

The prevalence and spectrum of arrhythmias change with age. As a consequence, treating arrhythmias in children has its unique challenges. The child’s age, as well as the age of onset of arrhythmia, history of heart symptoms or failure, and electrocardiography testing must all be considered when making a diagnosis. Although not a common occurrence in children, life-threatening arrhythmias need to be identified and appropriately treated to prevent serious outcomes.
