Take care of congenital heart disease (CHD), born usually affects infants, but rarely realized! Heart disease occurs in babies, because I’m in the womb. Without good content control and periodically, the baby’s condition is very prone to this congenital heart disease. As regards how the operation of this disease is different from another, because it depends on the classification, the level of failure and disorders of the heart structure.
Note that this disease, because fetal development usually occurs in the uterus. Many ordinary People Contact “heart leaks”. In some cases, the disease often seems to happen in aggregate in tetralogy of Fallot, where there are four heart defects. In Indonesia, the birth rate was only 2 estimates, people with heart disease luggage about 30,000%.
Existing data reported that approximately 1000.000 born babies and had suffered from this disease, which up to 10% of them do not go through the first year of life processes (Kinderherzstiftung). Congenital heart disease is often not recognized by the public as it is not visible to the human eye. Regarding the cause of most diseases, it is known, but mentions that certain genetic diseases, such as rubella and the syndrome is associated with this disease.
And this is a congenital heart disease in children:
- ventricular septal defect
It is also often referred to as a hole in the septum causes the heart to leakage of blood in the left ventricle and the right ventricle of the heart. If a ventricular septal defect small hole (VSD) can not escape it poses no major problems. But it is dangerous leak hole when they are great, because it can lead to heart failure. VSD is a congenital heart defect, which is the case of data, quite often. The main symptom is a disturbance of growth, shortness of breath, fatigue and difficulty feeding.
- pulmonary stenosis
Or often called a narrowing of the pulmonary valve. With the narrowing of the lung, the right ventricle valve has to work harder to pump blood expand.Should observed that the pulmonary stenosis (PD) is typically when patients, collecting grown, so very detrimental impact it is. To check the child’s condition in the womb or in infancy an appropriate measure for this PS is menobati.
The disease is often called the heart of the portico of the perforated screen is the presence of a hole between two terraces in the heart. Atrial septal defect (ASD) is in the hole in the wall between the left and right atrium. ASD occurs increased from 5 to 7% of cases and more mayopritas a girl.
Maybe Fallot (TF) is the most complex because of a complication of these three conditions are involved. Normally, babies suffer feature of this TF show the skin was blue due to lack of oxygen.
prevention of congenital heart disease
The “better safe than apologetic” adage really should be done to prevent the occurrence of congenital heart disease in the baby. Because after the child is the next generation of the family to ensure the health and survival is the duty of all parents. Due to the nature of the disease “silent”, then it is necessary to regularly check the contents of the good health during pregnancy and after birth intensive and frequent.

- The risk factors can be seen in pregnant women, such as diabetes, heart disease and other genetic disorders women. Although small, but the risk factors that may affect the fetus with congenital heart disease.
- Avoid taking medications when pregnancy because it is known that some drugs can harm the fetus in the womb. Generally, the use of drugs and antibiotics during pregnancy can only be used if it is a clear indication.
- Avoid exposure to X-rays or X-rays only if the pregnancy is repeated.
- Avoid secondhand smoke is particularly active Roko.
