What are used to reduce cardiac hypertrophy in aortic stenosis? beta blockers and calcium channel blockers
What is the treatment of aortic stenosis and what is controversial and why? balloon angioplasty is controversial due to risk of rupture of the aorta (no time to correct), surgical opening of valve and artificial valve is tx of choice
narrowing of the aorta that obstructs blood flow coarctation of aorta
What are the clinical manifestations of coarctation of aorta? above the defect: increase BP and Pulse Belove the defect: decrease BP and pulse
Where is the most common site for coarctation of the aorta? below the left subclavian
Other than cath or surgery, what other medical treatment can be used for coarctation of the aorta? PGE1 to keep the PDA open to get blood to the lower body
What surgical intervention is done for the treatment of coarctation of the aorta? primary end to end anastamosis, using subclavian flap, where the narrowed part is removed, then distal and proximal ends attached
Why would they not do balloon angioplasty or use a goretex patch for the treatment of coarctation of the aorta? Balloon angioplasty has a risk of rupturing the aorta, and goretex patch does not grow when the child grows, which the aorta needs to grow
What are post op complications following surgery of a coarctation of the aorta? chylothorax, infection, residual HTN, bleeding, paralytic ileus, post cardectomy syndrome, paralysis
What are the special considerations post op a coarctation of the aorta repair with a subclavian flap? LEFT ARM: NO BP,phlebotomy, IV's to flapped arm due to decrease flow, collaterals with form with time
Why is it important for newborns to get pulse and blood pressure in all 4 extremeties? because they could have coarctation of aorta, or other defects (10-15mmHg difference)
What are the two congenital heart disorders that cause mixed blood flow? Transpositions of the great arteries and hypoplastic left heart syndrome
The aorta comes from right ventricle, the pulmonary artery comes from left ventricle and forms two complete and separate circulations transposition of the great arteries/vessels
What is happening with the blood in transposition of the great vessels? deoxy blood returns to lungs, oxy blood returns to body, THIS IS NOT CONDUSIVE WITH LIFE!!
What are the clinical manifestations of transposition of the great vessels? CYANOSIS and CHF at birth or shortly after PDA begins to close, dyspnea, RVH, progressive acidosis, and hypoxia
What is the medical management for transposition of the great vessels? PGE1 to maintain PDA, oxygen, correct metabolic acidosis (w/ sodium bicarb), tx HF with digoxin and diuretics (aldactone)
What emergency palliative procedure can be done in transposition of the great vessels if there is no sufficient ASD or VSD present? Rashkin Balloon atrial septostomy to create or enlarge a patent foramen ovale (flap like opening)
What are the possible complications after a rashkin balloon atrial septostomy for transposition of the great vessels? arrythmias, bleeding, infection
What SURGICAL repair can be done for transposition of the great vessels? Arterial switch
During cath lab, before an atrial switch for treatment of transposition of the great vessels, what does the doctor need to do? needs to determine where coronary arteries arise to ensure that they will be located on the lefts side following surgical correction
What do you need to watch for post op after an atrial switch for transposition of the great vessels? decreased cardiac output and CHF due to shock of the heart (the heart has to get used to it)
This is the leading cause of death from CV disease in the first 2 weeks of life, where the left ventricle fails to develop normal or sufficiently Hypoplastic left heart syndrome
What are the clinical manifestations of HLHS? Cyanosis increases as PDA closes, respiratory distress, right ventricular hypertrophy
What three options are families given if their child has HLHS? Transplant, staged surgical repair, palliative care
How does the staged surgical repair work in the tx of HLHS? 3 chambered heart: blood enters right atrium which works as the right ventricle, and exits the lungs. The blood returns from the lungs, to the left atrium, passes through the true right ventricle which now works as the left ventricle, exits RV to the body
What is the benefit of a three chambered heart in children with HLHS? This can buy time for the child to grow and possible increase chances of getting a heart transplant later in life.
What do we need to watch the child for when they have a three chambered heart in HLHS? The right ventricle was not designed for the increased work of pumping blood to the body, so need to watch them for heart failure (also tire easily)
What is the congenital heart defect that decreases pulmonary blood flow? Tetralogy of Fallot
What are the 4 anomalies seen together that make up Tetralogy of fallot? Large ventricular septal defect, pulmonary stenosis, right ventricular hypertrophy, and overriding aorta (ventricular septum goes into aorta)
What are the clinical manifestations of tetralogy of fallot? cyanosis increased with crying, TET spells, dyspnea on exertion, murmur, polycythemia (inc. RBC)
Why is deoxygenated blood re-circulating to the body in tetralogy of fallot? right to left shunting of blood since the pressure is high in the pulmonary artery, it is "easier" for the blood to cross the ventricular septal defect into the left ventricle
REMEMBER: eating is considered exertion
Why is it bad to have polycythemia which is caused from tetralogy of fallots? the RBC's increase in attempt to increase oxygen carrying capacity which is not good because the increase in RBC increases the blood viscosity making it more difficult for blood to flow
What nursing interventions are done for children whom have tetralogy of fallot? prevent dehydration, Inderal (increase pulm. artery dilation) maintain nutrition
When is surgical correction for children that have tetralogy of fallot and what needs to be watched postop?? often 1-2 years old, watch for CHF post op
What would you see in the hands if tetralogy of fallot goes untreated? clubbing of the fingers
This is seen in tetralogy of fallot, peaks 2-4 months old, related to the increase oxygen demand in the face of limited pulmonary blood flow TET spells (hypercyanotic spells)
Are TET spells a primary oxygen problem or a circulation problem? Circulation: Right to left shunting, deoxy blood (acidosis), hyperpnea (breathe faster), blood pumps faster, the cycle starts over.
What is the treatment for TET spells? MUST BREAK THE CHAIN! place the child into the knee to chest position, if this does not work morphine may be used, blow by 02 (not first line, can scare child with 02, then they have more TET spells)
Congenital heart disorders, rheumatic fever, kawasaki disease, or infectious endocarditis can cause heart failure
What is the goal of treatment for heart failure? decrease work of the heart, improve respirations, maintain proper nutrition, prevent infection, decrease anxiety
What are the nursing interventions for a child with heart failure? small freq. feeds (dec. exertion), rest, digoxin, diuretics (lasix or aldactone), aterial vasodilators (hydralazine) or calcium channel blockers (nifedipine), oxy as little as needed (1/4L)
What are the clinical manifestations do you see with right sided heart failure and why? blood is backing up into the body: distended neck veins, tachycardia, enlarged liver (see this before dependent edema)

Is migratory polyarthritis painful? yes, given salicylates for pain
What is the goal and treatment for rheumatic fever? Aimed at preventing permanent heart damage because mitral valve scarring is possible. Treat with rest, ASA (pain), antibacterials, manage HF
Why is it okay to give ASA for rheumatic fever? Since rheumatic fever is BACTERIAL, not VIRAL, you dont have to worry about Reye's syndrome. The aspirin is needed for the heart to dec. pain and used as an antiplatelet
this is also known as mucopurulent lymph node syndrome, not contagious, and usally in kids under 5 years old. it may be a reaction to toxins from a previous infection such as staph. Kawasaki disease
