Video: Hospital Runs ‘Myocarditis In Kids’ Awareness Commercial As If It’s A Common Illness

TWO PLUS TWO EQUALS FOUR

“Suri had a bad stomach ache that turned out to be myocarditis”

Steve Watson – Sept 16 2022

The New York-Presbyterian Hospitalis running a commercial in an effort to raise awareness of myocarditis in children, seemingly suggesting that inflammation of the heart in children is a common condition.

The video, titled “Pediatric Patient Story – Suri” tells the story of a child who “had a bad stomach ache that turned out to be myocarditis, a serious inflammation of the heart.”

The video caption states that “Our multidisciplinary pediatric critical care team worked to regulate her heartbeat – and got her back to feeling like herself.”

Watch: https://www.youtube.com/embed/61hmUuSewSYMyocarditis cases in children are rare, with studies indicating that in children there are 1 to 2 per 100,000, usually stemming from cold viruses. The majority of those cases resolve on their own or with treatment.

So why the sudden need to raise awareness?
