Summary

Summary

Approximately one in every 100 babies born in the world today has a heart defect. They join the many thousands of children suffering the symptoms and complications of congenital heart disease while their doctors determine if, and when, they will be candidates for corrective surgery.Cheryl Wild wrote this book so that parents can have all the information they need, including: identifying the type of defect; a review of the most common treatments in use; an overview of the tests used for diagnosis and treatment; what to ask the doctor; and how to prepare for your child's surgery.A unique feature of this book is "Draw-On Hearts" -- illustrations that enable physicians to draw the exact structure of the child's defect and repair.
