Congenital heart disease (CHD) affects an estimated 40,000 babies born every year, making it the most common birth defect found in infants. Though some forms of CHD do not result in health problems later in life, about 25 percent of infants with CCHD have a critical CHD, which can lead to negative outcomes if not diagnosed soon after birth. As a nurse working in pediatric cardiology, Elizabeth B. Mikula, MSN, RN, CPN, CPHQ, saw the potential to improve outcomes for these vulnerable patients through better screening processes.
