Q.

Heart related

My Son is 2 1/2 years old, his Pead and our Gp has picked up that his heart beat is not normal. They say there are no signs of heart disease, but that we should observe him carefully. What do I do other than observe him, any advice?

Paediatrician

I am not sure about this advice. It would be best for your son to be checked by a paediatric cardiologist so that you have a clear diagnosis and a plan as to what needs to be done.
