The purpose of this research is to evaluate and create a new clinical prediction model for CCHD screening that combines non-invasive measurements of oxygenation and perfusion.
This study will create and test an enhanced critical congenital heart defect (CCHD) screen that combines non-invasive measurements of oxygenation and perfusion in two ways. The first will use current equipment without automated interpretation and the second will require additional software/device but will automate the interpretation. To work towards development of those two algorithms in this stage of the study, the study team will download oxygen saturation (SpO2) and perfusion index (PIx) measurements from newborns with and without congenital heart disease (CHD) and apply statistical tests to the data afterwards to identify parameters to include in the newly developed screening algorithms. The overall objective is to create an automated screening algorithm to improve acyanotic CCHD detection, preventing morbidity and mortality associated with diagnoses missed by SpO2 screening. The central hypothesis is that the addition of non-invasive perfusion measurements to SpO2 will be superior to SpO2-alone screening for detection of acyanotic CCHD. The data collected during this study will be used to develop the two algorithms and the algorithms will be compared to the standard of care using statistical tests on the data after the fact (k-fold validation). The newly developed algorithms will not be tested in-situ on patients during this study.

Investigators would like to find out if a woman's exposure to Coxsackievirus has an effect or increase in incidence of babies being born with congenital heart disease(CHD)
The project aims toward clarifying the underlying mechanism and the long-term impact of congenital heart disease on neurodevelopment.
Less information is available on brain integrity in adults with congenital heart disease than on brain changes in newborns and children with heart defects. Nevertheless, the number of adults with cong...

The hemodynamic and electrophysiological action of the left HEART VENTRICLE. Its measurement is an important aspect of the clinical evaluation of patients with heart disease to determine the effects of the disease on cardiac performance.
The waist circumference measurement divided by the hip circumference measurement. For both men and women, a waist-to-hip ratio (WHR) of 1.0 or higher is considered "at risk" for undesirable health consequences, such as heart disease and ailments associated with OVERWEIGHT. A healthy WHR is 0.90 or less for men, and 0.80 or less for women. (National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, 2004)
Cardiac manifestation of systemic rheumatological conditions, such as RHEUMATIC FEVER. Rheumatic heart disease can involve any part the heart, most often the HEART VALVES and the ENDOCARDIUM.
Occlusion of the outflow tract in either the LEFT VENTRICLE or the RIGHT VENTRICLE of the heart. This may result from CONGENITAL HEART DEFECTS, predisposing heart diseases, complications of surgery, or HEART NEOPLASMS.
The measurement of magnetic fields generated by electric currents from the heart. The measurement of these fields provides information which is complementary to that provided by ELECTROCARDIOGRAPHY.
Congenital conditions are those which are present from birth. They include structural deformities or loss of function in organs such as the <!--LGfEGNT2Lhm-->heart, gut or skeletal system. They can be corrected by <!--LGfEGNT2Lhm-->surgery, m...
