Cardio Cookies

This is cute!

February is American Heart Month so our colleagues across the Research Institute have found creative ways to celebrate and remind us of the importance of heart health.

Well, here is a new one for me - Cardio Cookies!

Check out the ECG's and anatomical heart within the valentine.  This was the creative work of Christine Chen, research coordinator at the MedStar ambulatory research center in Hyattsville.

And for those that like a challenge, who can name the white structure in the top heart (hint - it occurs most often in newborns)?

Hope everyone has a great Valentine's Day on Sunday!

  1. (PDA)Patent Ductus Arteriousus. This is normal flow as a fetus, but should be closed once the baby is born. If still open then normal blood flow circulation is interrupted.
