<< Congenital Heart Disease In Pediatric Patients: Recognizing The Undiagnosed And Managing Complications In The Emergency Department

Critical Appraisal Of The Literature

A literature search was performed in PubMed using combinations of the search terms congenital heart disease or congenital heart defects and emergency department, epidemiology, etiology, embryology, genetics, congestive heart failure, shock, cardiogenic shock, cyanosis, prostaglandin, PGE1and vasopressors. Only articles published in English whose subjects included children aged birth to 18 years were reviewed.
