CCHD Image

Approximately 1 in 100 infants is born with some type of congenital heart disease (CHD). Some forms of CHD cause little or no problems, but other forms referred to as critical congenital heart disease (CCHD) present a significant risk of morbidity or mortality if not diagnosed soon after birth. To identify those infants at risk, all infants should be screened using pulse oximetry prior to discharge from the nursery. This educational module offers evidence-based content for healthcare providers on the identification and implications of CCHD, assistance in establishing a screening program, and resources for helping parents understand the testing process and results.
