Deena Barber has been a nurse for over 30 years. Over that time she has seen many changes in care for those born with congenital heart defects (CHDs). Tune in today to hear her discuss some of the most impactful advancements that have led to a change in the CHD population from being mostly comprised of babies to now having the greater percentage of the population being adult survivors. In Part 2 we'll be discussing the changes that have occurred regarding specific heart defects, namely tetralogy of Fallot, transposition of the great arteries, valve problems, rhythm problems and hypoplastic left heart syndrome.
Following the program we will "meet" in the HUG Podcast Chatroom on Paltalk. Please join us! We want to hear from our Listeners. Do you have a question? You can type out your questions in the chatroom during the show or immediately after OR you can actually speak to Anna and Deena (if she's not with a patient!). Paltalk is a free program that can be downloaded to your computer, tablet or smartphone. See the blog on www.hearttoheartwithanna.com for specific directions.
