Surgery Heart Pillows

These pillows might look like just another place to lay your head down, but they actually serve many other purposes. 

A heart pillow is provided to the patient on the day of heart surgery, along with a pen for members of the child's medical team to sign. The pillows' shape and fullness are also designed specifically for our older patients to 'hug' for chest support as they begin the physical rehabilitation process after surgery.
