Your child’s heart’s electrical system provides the energy to help his heart pump blood.

  • also called the cardiac conduction system
  • an EKG is a graphic picture of the heart’s electrical activity

Researchers at Boston Children’s Hospital are dedicated to exploring the heart’s electrical system. Ongoing research includes looking at creating replacement heart valves using a patient’s own tissue, the evaluation of radio-frequency ablation to treat arrhythmia, and the study of new drugs in preventing aortic aneurysms.

Boston Children’s is so much more than a hospital—it’s a community of researchers, clinicians, administrators, support staff, innovators, teachers, patients and families, all working together to make the impossible possible. ”
