    Wild Things! When CHD Teens & Young Adults Rebel

    in Health

    Being born with the most common birth defect still means you're not like everyone else. Going through the teen and young adult years is difficult for everyone, but it's even more difficult for survivors of congenital heart defects. Unlike their peers, Survivors frequently have to take medication, have to see their cardiologist regularly and sometimes even have to have additional surgery. What happens when a teen or young adult has had enough!? How do teens with congenital heart heart defects rebel? Today's show will feature a man and a woman who both rebelled as teens. They will share their experiences with us, and more importantly, the lessons they learned.

    In Utero Surgery for Babies with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome

    in Health

    Now, more than ever before, parents are finding out in utero if their baby will be born with some kind of congenital birth defect. One potentially fatal congenital heart defect is hypoplastic left heart syndrome (or HLHS). According to Texas Children's Hospital, this occurs in about 1 in 6,000 live births when the fetus's left side of the heart does not develop normally. Boston Children's Hospital led the way for babies diagnosed in utero with HLHS by creating an in utero procedure to reduce the severity of HLHS or, in some cases, to prevent the critical congenital heart defect from actually occurring -- allowing the baby's heart to eventually work with four pumping chambers (instead of the 2 chambers so many HLHS babies have). Today's show will feature a couple who traveled to Boston when they discovered their unborn child would have HLHS. How dangerous was the surgery? How many surgeries did their son need? What is their son's prognosis? Listen to this show for answers to these questions and more!

    Look around! Whereever you are, whereever you go, simply look at the people around you. Guess how many of them have high blood pressure?


    And, according to the Centers for Disease control, guess in which age groups hypertension is now common?

    ECMO Success Stories for Babies with Congenital Heart Defects

    in Health

    Sometimes our littlest heart heroes need extraordinary help in order to survive. One of the most extraordinary machines used to save our babies born with congenital heart defects is known as ECMO which stands for extracorporeal membrane oxygenation. This is a special machine that takes blood from the body, oxygenates it using an artificial lung, and pumps it back into the body using an artificial heart. ECMO is similar to a heart/lung bypass machine used in open heart surgery, but can be used for a longer time.


    Twenty years ago, when my son was just a baby, all of the babies I knew who were put on ECMO passed away. But like with so many types of new technology, things have changes and improved over the year. Now being put on ECMO doesn't have to be a death sentence. Today's show will feature three mothers whose children have been put on ECMO and survived. Hear about their experiences and what they feel other parents need to know on today's show.
