Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Approximately 8 out of every 1,000 newborns have a congenital heart abnormality, ranging from mild to severe. This discussion provides a review of these conditions beginning with an overview of cardiac embryology as well as fetal and transitional circulation. Then there is consideration of newborn cardiac evaluation and principles of newborn cardiac testing. Disorders covered include cyanotic heart defects, persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn, acyanotic defects, congestive heart failure as well as cardiogenic shock, associated congenital heart defects of the the dysmorphic newborn, and finally, neonatal arrhythmias. An appreciation of cardiology of the newborn is an important component for the clinician in caring for the newborn.
