CCHD

This Provider’s Guide to What Parents Need to Know about Critical Congenital Heart Disease provides information about CCHD written in language that can be easily understood by parents. It explains the importance of CCHD screening and what the results say about their baby’s risk of having CCHD. It reviews the primary care provider’s role in follow-up testing, information about critical heart defects and transport to a specialty facility when necessary.

Resources include a printable handout about CCHD Screening and access to the PedHeart Community Web with its extensive discussion of heart defects, diagnostic testing and treatment. Access to the site is free of charge and we encourage you to share its resources widely.
