Abstract

Precise characterization of cardiac anatomy and physiology through fetal echocardiography can predict early postnatal clinical course. Some neonates with prenatally defined critical congenital heart disease have anticipated precipitous compromise during perinatal transition for which specialized, diagnosis-specific delivery room care can be arranged to expeditiously stabilize cardiopulmonary hemodynamics. In this article, we describe our institutional approach to the delivery room care of neonates with prenatally diagnosed congenital heart disease, emphasizing our diagnosis-specific care pathways for newborns with critical disease.
