“It’s as if it were…, fourth book by cardiologist Vanessa Guimarães, presents instruments and exams for children in a fun way.

Any medical examination, with or without braces, can scare a child. Even more so if that child has never seen or heard of a CT scan or an x-ray is going to be exposed to them. A child with heart disease goes through many, many times. With the aim of humanizing, minimizing anguish and treating in a playful way the exams that the child must pass, Dr. Vanessa Guimarães launches the fourth book within her cardiohumanization series: It’s like it’s…
The book brings a new look at the cardiovascular exams requested by the doctor, for children with heart disease or not, in addition to their families, presenting each exam from a playful perspective. She transforms her characters into astronauts, athletes, magicians, detectives, showing equipment and exam procedures as tools for these characters.
It’s like it’s… repeats the partnership of Dr. Vanessa with her illustrator, Shepherd Jesse, who started with the first book, Cardiopath’s parents, when he was just 14 years old. then came I, cardiopathwhose cover comes with an “empty” face where children can draw themselves, and Recipes from the Heartwith practical and fun healthy eating tips that help you choose foods that are beneficial for your heart.
In collaboration with medical students, the book was written under the supervision of the psychologist Jussara Oliveira Zimmermann and each of the procedures or exams was in charge of one of the doctor’s “pupils”.
“It’s a book for the whole family! It was designed to generate warmth and cooperation on the part of the child in carrying out each exam, insofar as its reading provides caregivers with global learning for themselves, the ability to transmit to their child and prepare them for the exam, using the playful format. It’s like it’s… continues the mission of Dr. Vanessa in order to improve the quality of life of patients with cardiological diseases, through humanized and excellent care and assist in the recovery of children and adults with congenital heart diseases in Brazil.
