Cardiology research at CHEO will help pediatricians at CHEO and around the world better understand cardiac conditions and lead to ongoing discoveries to inspire the best life for every child and youth.

Research Projects

  1. Moving together while staying apart: Practical recommendations for 24-hour home-based movement behaviours for those with cardiovascular disease


    Clinicians should be aware that clear communication of the importance of limiting prolonged sedentary time, engaging in regular physical activity and exercise, and ensuring optimal sleep in association with the provision of clear, comprehensible, and practical advice is fundamental to ensuring that those living with CVD respond optimally to the challenges posed by the pandemic.

  2. Role of Sex and Gender in Access to Care and Cardiovascular Complications of Individuals with Diabetes Mellitus


    Country-specific gender related factors and gender disparity must be targeted for improving health status and access to care of patients with DM.

  3. Parents of Very Young Children with Congenital Heart Defects Report Good Quality of Life for Their Children and Families Regardless of Defect Severity


    Parents report a lower quality of life among girls, and lower family quality of life is associated with lower family income.

  4. The mental health of adolescents and pre-adolescents living with inherited arrhythmia syndromes: A systematic review of the literature


  5. Exercise Capacity and Self-Efficacy are Associated with Moderate-to-Vigorous Intensity Physical Activity in Children with Congenital Heart Disease


    Of 172 patients who were recruited, 137 (80%) had complete MVPA data and were included in the analysis.

  6. New concepts in the assessment of exercise capacity among children with congenital heart disease: Looking beyond heart function and mortality


    Physically active lifestyles are important for the physical and mental health of children with congenital heart defects.
