Even with treatment, the lifespan of individuals with congenital heart disease is limited compared with their peers; percent of individuals with congenital heart disease are alive at but for some diagnoses (e.g., truncus arteriosus and single ventricle), the survival is much poorer (Tennant et al., ). This book provides the theoretical and practical basis of technical nursing in congenital heart disease; it is intended for nurses and nursing students, and for anyone involved in the treatment of these patients.   Congenital heart disease in adults is often characterized by severe clinical symptoms, an advanced state of pathologic malformation and frequent simulation of acquired heart disease, particularly valvular disease or cardiomyopathy. 1 With an accurate diagnosis, surgical treatment can be performed with low risk and a high degree of success in most Cited by: 5.

  Background. The treatment of congenital heart disease patients in the West Bank and Gaza involves both medical and political challenges. Understanding the difficulties faced in treating the Palestinian population is an important step to improving surgical care, better allocating resources and overcoming the region's unique problems. Congenital heart diseases that decrease cardiopulmonary reserve include intracardiac shunting, hypoxemia from inadequate pulmonary blood flow or intracardiac shunting, congestive failure from volume or pressure overload, vascular obstructive disease from excessive pulmonary blood flow, various kinds of stenoses, and occasional coronary ischemia.   Participants in the study must be at risk for or have symptoms of cardiovascular diseases. Some examples of cardiovascular diseases include coronary heart disease, heart valve disease, cardiomyopathies, peripheral artery disease, congenital heart disease, and vascular disease of the kidneys. This study is located in Bethesda, Maryland. Adults with congenital heart disease (ACHD) represent a growing population.

They range from simple defects with no symptoms to complex defects with severe, life-threatening symptoms. Congenital heart defects are the most common type of birth defect. They affect 8 of every 1, newborns.   Stabilization during preoperative cardiac surgery especially in neonates has an important role to predict outcome for pediatric congenital heart surgery. We tried to elaborate general guidelines on how to diagnose and some anticipations for emergency treatments tailored by the type of congenital heart disease in neonates.
