After Pediatric Heart Surgery

After pediatric heart surgery, medical equipment is used to monitor and care for your child during their hospitalization. Though this equipment can be overwhelming, these medical devices are important during your child’s recovery process. Below are some of the common medical devices we use and what function they serve. Please be aware that you may see some of these devices before or after your child’s surgery, as well as during their hospital stay. If you have a specific question about any of the equipment being used, please ask your bedside nurse or doctor for clarification.
