Preparation & Test Day
For babies, bring your own bottles for feeding, diapers, a familiar toy and if you use one, a pacifier. Dress your child comfortably, keeping in mind that sonographers need access to your child's chest and belly during the exam.
The echocardiogram will take at least one hour. Please note that appointments for toddlers are best scheduled during their nap time so they may fall asleep during the test.
Parents are welcome, even expected, to be present during the exam. Tests are most successful when parents are with their child, helping to ease any fear and anxiety.
