Cardio Clear 7

Prepare for the emotional Cardio Clear 7 Review toll of open heart surgery on older children. Many children suffer depression after open heart surgery. The pain of having drainage tubes removed, lines pulled, and pain at the incision site and sternum add to this depression. Be prepared for the emotional toll. This depression can last for three to four weeks after the surgery. Allow the patient to feel however they are feeling. Validate their pain, anger, sadness, and frustrations and let them know it is okay for them to feel that way. Additionally, some patients may suffer from anxiety issues. My daughter's anxiety in the hospital was severe. She suffered full blown attacks that raised her heart rate and breathing rates and made her feel like she could not breathe. Your child may suffer anxiety attacks as a natural reaction of being in the hospital and enduring such a serious surgery. Other emotions may also be felt. Anger, sadness, apathy, phobias, or feelings of being overwhelmed may all be experienced. All these emotional ups and downs are normal and don't have to surprise you. If you have a plan and know how to deal with them you and your child can make it through surgery and recovery.

One bright ingrained memory of my childhood is of my brothers and I receiving our Atari 2600. Most joyous was the fact that I could actually play Pac-man at home. Albeit a slightly less advanced version of Pac-man but I was eating dots and chasing monsters. Back then video games were marketed as improving hand and eye coordination.
