“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.”

So why the sudden need to raise awareness?
