A must-read for parents of children with heart defects

Heart Defects in Children: What Every Parent Should Know provides parents with critical information that their child's doctor may not provide. The book begins by describing a healthy heart and how it functions, then explores the most common heart defects including atrial septal defects, aortic stenosis, tetralogy of Fallot, and others. You'll learn just how your child's particular defect is affecting his or her heart, and what to expect in terms of testing, treatment, and long-term care.
