Healthcare delivery – particularly in operating rooms across the country – changes rapidly each year, requiring nurses to innovate solutions for patients that are both effective and practical for the operating room (OR) team to implement.

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.
