This comprehensive guide offers a step by step approach to the diagnosis and management of different types of CHD, at different stages of life. Beginning with an introduction to the development of the foetal cardiovascular system and genetic, the following section discusses the basics of heart examination, radiography and terminology. Each section progresses through different conditions and examines the transition of care into adulthood and long term issues facing adults with CHD.
