    Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia


    Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH) occurs when the diaphragm fails to form or to close totally and an opening allows abdominal organs into the chest cavity. This inhibits lung growth.


    CDH occurs in approximately 1 in every 2,500 births (1,600 cases in the U.S. each year). The diaphragm is formed in the first trimester of pregnancy and controls the lungs' ability to inhale and exhale. The cause of CDH is not yet known.


    CHERUBS - The Association of Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Research, Awareness, and Support


    Founded in 1995, we are an international charity, helping over 5000 families in 60 countries.

    Encore Presentation of "Rainbow Babies: Pregnancy After Losing a Child to a CHD"

    in Health

    "Rainbow babies" are babies who are conceived after women have experienced a stillbirth or after a baby has died. We will discuss the process one woman has decided to go through in order to have her own rainbow baby, who is helping her and how others who have lost a baby to a congenital heart defect might find hope in giving birth to a healthy baby.

    What are the concerns a mother might have in getting pregnant again after having lost a child to a congenital heart defect? What is the likelihood a woman will have more than one child with a congenital heart defect? How do women deal with infertility after having lost a baby to stillbirth or death? These are some of the issues we will address during this episode.

Lead by pediatrician Dr. Gerald Paul Dempsey, they strive to provide expertise in medicine, timely service and up-to-date resources to our patients and to referring physicians. While they aren’t a primary care facility, they do offer a variety of services that you won’t find anywhere else.


    Dr Dempsey sees patients that have been referred by physicians for medical consultation, our Special Kids, Special Care services, and Sport Medicine Clinic. As with medical consultation, his Special Kids, Special Care services for children with special needs are by hospital or physician referral only. Some of the conditions for which shared care would be an option include: cerebral palsy, congenital heart diseases, Down Syndrome and other genetic disorders, epilepsy and other problems.


    In Special Kids, Special Care situations, patients continue ongoing primary care with their family doctor, while he assumes responsibility for monitoring and coordinating care of medical issues which require specialized training, or additional time not available to most family physicians. Ultimately each diagnosis has a different list of needs and as such the treatment options he handles vary on a case by case basis.

    "Family Talk Wednesday" What About Our Children?

    in Family

     Once children are in school, personnel often notice indicators of child neglect such as poor hygiene, poor weight gain, inadequate medical care, or frequent absences from school. Professionals have defined four types of neglect: physical, emotional, educational, and medical.


     Neglect has received significantly less attention than physical and sexual abuse by practitioners, researchers, and the media.


    * Child neglect is defined as a type of maltreatment related to the failure to provide needed, age-appropriate care. Unlike physical and sexual abuse, neglect is usually typified by an ongoing pattern of inadequate care and is readily observed by individuals in close contact with the child. Once children are in school, personnel often notice indicators of child neglect such as poor hygiene, poor weight gain, inadequate medical care, or frequent absences from school. Professionals have defined four types of neglect: physical, emotional, educational, and medical.


    More children suffer from neglect in the United States than from physical and sexual abuse combined. During 2005, 62.8 percent of victims experienced neglect, 16.6 percent were physically abused, 9.3 percent were sexually abused, 7.1 percent were emotionally or psychologically maltreated, and 2.0 percent were medically neglected. In addition, 14.3 percent of victims experienced such "other" types of maltreatment as abandonment, threats of harm to the child, and congenital drug addiction. States may code any maltreatment type that does not fall into one of the main categories—physical abuse, neglect, medical neglect, sexual abuse, and psychological or emotional maltreatment—as "other."

    Seizing the Day with Myles Schweitzer!

    in Health

    Being born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome, or HLHS, over 2 decades ago meant a very uncertain future. Back then most of the children born with HLHS didn't survive. Only a handful made it to age 5 and naturally, as time went on more and more of our Survivors had hearts that began to fail or have problems requiring extra medications or pacemakers or extra surgeries -- some even needing heart transplants to survive. Today we have a handful of Survivors who have made it to their mid-twenties or beyond. Today's show features one such survivor.


    Tune in to hear Myles Schweitzer share his advice and stories about how he seizes the day. As a 25-year-old HLHS Survivor, he is exceptional and I'm sure when you hear his story, you'll be inspired.

    Allan's chapter is titled, How to become relevant and visible to a Global Audience.
