Abstract

Nursing care of the neonate with CHD incorporates a knowledge base of the anatomy and physiology of congenital heart defects, surgical repair, complications associated with CHD, diagnostic testing, medical therapy, and psychosocial support. The neonatal nurse is a vital member of the cardiac team in providing accurate assessments, implementing medical therapies, and supporting the family.
