Number of U.S. Babies Born with CHDs

  • CHDs affect nearly 1% of―or about 40,000―births per year in the United States.1
  • The prevalence (the number of babies born with heart defect compared to the total number of births) of some CHDs, especially mild types, is increasing, while the prevalence of other types has remained stable. The most common type of heart defect is a ventricular septal defect(VSD).
  • About 25% of babies with a CHD have a critical CHD. Infants with critical CHDs generally need surgery or other procedures in their first year of life.
  • The prevalence of all types of CHDs, including critical CHDs, varies by state and by type of defect. 

CHD-Related Deaths

  • CHDs are a leading cause of birth defect-associated infant illness and death.
Infant deaths due to CHDs often occur when the baby is less than 28 days old (sometimes called the neonatal period). In a study of neonatal deaths, 4.2% of all neonatal deaths were due to a CHD

During 1999–2006, there were 41,494 deaths related to CHDs in the United States. This means that CHDs were either the main cause of death or contributed to death in some way. During this time period, CHDs were listed as the main cause of death for 27,960 people. Nearly half (48%) of the deaths due to CHDs occurred during infancy (younger than 1 year of age).

My advise
1...   The child born with congenital heart problems will have less life span.
2...   If the child has blood pressure in his childhood it may lead to heart attack as his young age.
3...   When mother follows healthy habits before birth i.e. 1..  Eating healthy food so that her digestion will not consume more oxygen so that her child receives sufficient oxygen.  2.. Drinking sufficient water will help to flow blood and oxygen though out the body.
4..    When blood and oxygen flows in child's body freely the child may not have congenital heart problem
5..... I advise every pregnant woman to take healthy food and drink sufficient water to have a healthy child without congenital heart problems
6...   Every couple with to have Healthy child with full of life span but not less life span below four years as most of the children born with Congenital Heard disease will leave their body in early childhood.
