Who we are

We are responsible for the clinical care of all patients in the Cardiac Critical Care Unit including post-operative cardiac surgical patients, pre-operative neonates with critical congenital heart disease and children with medical heart disease requiring critical care such as myocarditis, end-stage heart failure or life-threatening arrhythmias.

Three of the five member physician staff are fully trained in paediatric cardiology, and all five divisional staff are cross-appointed to the Division of Cardiology.
