Congenital heart disease and its effects on children and their families.

Author information

Intensive Care Unit, Birmingham Children's Hospital.


This article provides insights into the experiences of families with a child with congenital heart disease. These are clarified by descriptions of the most common defects and their surgery. The way in which the condition affects each family, from pregnancy onwards, is unique to them, but informed children's nurses can do much to help.
