Alterations in Cardiovascular Function Ball & Bindler Donna Hills APN EdD Blood Flow Transition from fetal to pulmonary circulation
the umbilical cord is cut systemic vascular resistance is increased pressure in the L side of the heart increases foramen ovale closes breathing is initiated
pulmonary vascular resistance falls blood that was shunted through the PDA now goes to the lungs. FIGURE 261 Fetal circulation. Blood leaves the placenta and enters the fetus through the umbilical vein. The ductus venosus, the foramen ovale, and the ductus arteriosus allow the blood to bypass the fetal liver and lungs. After circulating through the fetus, the blood returns to the placenta through the umbilical arteries. From Ladewig, P. W., London, M. L., Moberly, S., & Olds, S. B. (2002).

Ductus Arteriosus an opening in fetal circ. between the pulmonary artery (PA) and aorta (Ao). in fetal circulation, most of the blood bypasses the lungs and returns to systemic circulation by way of the PDA (PA to Ao). In transition to pulmonary circulation, the PDA
constricts over 10-15hrs; permanent closure should occur by 3wks of age, UNLESS SATURATION REMAINS LOW FIGURE 263 Normal pressure gradients and oxygen saturation levels in the heart chambers and great vessels. The ventricle on the right side of the heart has a lower pressure during systole than the left ventricle because less pressure is needed to pump blood to the lungs than to the rest of the body.

Response to Hypoxemia acute: HR increases chronic: bone marrow produces more RBC to increase the amount of Hgb available for oxygen transport. Hct>50 is called polycythemia. increased blood viscosity increases risk of thromboembolism. Cardiac Functioning 02 requirements are high the first few weeks of
life normally, HR increases to provide adequate oxygen transport infant has little cardiac output reserve capacity cardiac output depends almost completely on HR until the heart is fully developed (age 5 yr). Compliance in the infant in infancy, muscle fibers are less developed and organized results in less functional capacity or less
compliance less compliance means the infant is unable or less able to distend or expand the ventricles to achieve an increase stroke volume in order to compensate for increased demands. Severe Hypoxemia children respond with bradycardia cardiac arrest generally results from prolonged hypoxemia related to respiratory failure or shock in adults, hypoxemia usually results from direct
insult to the heart. therefore, in children, bradycardia is a significant warning sign of cardiac arrest. approp Rx for hypoxemia reverses brady. Case Study Dylan is a 3 mo old with Down Syndrome and VSD, admitted for CHF. His birth weight was 7 lb 9 oz; a week ago he weighed 12 lb at the pediatricians office and now weighs 12.10 lb. He is breathing 72 bpm with a HR of 190 and a
sat of 91%. He is diaphoretic and is not taking his usual 3 oz formula every 3-4 hours. He has had 4 moderately wet diapers in the past 24 hrs. Study questions for case study Identify abnormal assessment data for Dylan What other data would you collect? (Hx and assessment) What is your priority nursing action? What other nursing interventions would you
do for him? For his mother? Down Syndrome A trisomy genetic abnormality; ;usually on chromo 21. Classic characteristics: Some degree of mental retardation with variable functional deficit Microcephaly, flattened forehead, wide short neck. Epicanthal eye folds, simian palmar crease, protruding tongue, low set ears, short broad hands, hearing loss,
hypotonia. Increased incidence of DM, CHD and Leukemia What aspects of Down Syndrome have an affect on his ability to maintain optimal health? Protruding tongue Hypotonia Slower to reach milestones, compounded by hypotonia
Pulmonary Artery Hypertension irreversible condition that results from R sided heart circulation being overloaded and therefore shunting excessive blood to the lungs. overloads the R side of the heart, overloads the pulmonary system causing increased pulmonary vascular resistance (life threatening).
Obstructive Congenital Defects due to abnormally small pulmonary vessels which restrict flow of blood, so the heart hypertrophies to work harder to provide the blood flow to organs. however, CO increases initially but eventually hypertrophied muscle becomes ineffective. initially R sided failure, progressing to L sided and eventual bilateral failure Congestive Heart Failure
cardiac output is inadequate to meet the bodys needs may result from: congenital heart defect that causes increased pulmonary blood flow or obstruction of blood outflow tract problems with heart contractility pathology that requires a high cardiac output (severe anemia, acidosis, respiratory disease). CHF in the infant
can be subtle good assessment skills are a must tires easily, especially during feeding (initial) weight loss diaphoresis, irritability, frequent infection.

Cardiomegaly occurs at the heart attempts to maintain CO if CHF is not adequately treated, precursors of Cardiogenic Shock arise: cyanosis, weak peripheral pulses, cool extremities, hypotension, heart murmurs clarification: not all heart murmurs are heralding cardiogenic shock. Clinical diagnosis based upon clinical assessment:
tachycardia, respiratory distress, crackles. cxray could show cardiac enlargement, venous congestion, PE, atelectasis. cardiac echo: defects or dysfunction EKG: tachycardia, bradycardia, ventricular hypertrophy Goals of Management make the heart work efficiently remove excess fluid improve systemic circulation without

refers to a defect in the heart, great vessels or persistence of a fetal structure occurs in 1% live births higher incidence in still births and aborted fetuses incidence has declined over past 25 yrs d/t techno advances in intrauterine assessment, surgical techniques and intensive care Factors that increase risk for having a child with CHD
family hx of CHD maternal age >35yr coexisting maternal disease: DM, collagen vascular disease, PKU exposure to teratogens or rubella infection CHD most CHD develop during first 8 wks of gestation usually result of combined genetic and environmental interaction
genetic factors: familial patterns chromosomal abnormalities: most common is Downs syndrome with 40% occurrence rate of CHD. defects are divided into cyanotic and acyanotic (in pure form). Acyanotic Heart Defects constitutes the majority of heart defects in children
two types: obstructive and non-obstructive obstructive: PS, AoS, Coarc. non-obstructive:PDA, ASD, AV canal (endocardial cushing defect), VSD. Cyanotic Heart Defects generally caused by a valvular or vascular formation ex: Tetralogy of Fallot, Transposition, hypoplastic LV, tricuspid atresia, pulmonary atresia, truncus arteriosus, and
total anomalous venous return. Acyanotic; non-obstructive lesions PDA ASD
AV canal VSD Pathophysiology of Acyanotic, non-obstructive CHD openings in the septal wall cause a L to R shunt oxygenated blood mixes with deoxygenated blood volume overload to the pulmonary system can cause CHF PHT occurs d/t chronic volume overload to the
lungs if uncorrected. Patent Ductus Arteriosus common; 9-12% of all CHD persistant fetal structure when the PDA remains open, blood is shunted from the Aorta to the Pulmonary artery, therefore increasing blood flow to the lungs: L to R. bounding pulses, dyspnea, tachypnea, FTT. at risk for freq URI and endocarditis, CHF. continuous systolic murmur and thrill palp.
Treatment of a PDA surgical ligation; transcatheter closure >18mos of age. Indomethacin may stimulate closure in premies Prostaglandin helps to keep the PDA open until surgical correction is optimal. left untreated, LVH, pulmonary hypertension (PHT) and vascular obstructive disease develop. Atrial Septal Defect; ASD
opening in the atrial shunting L to R shunting accounts for 6-10% of CHD small to moderate size may go undiagnosed until preschool years or later sx of large ASD: CHF, tiring easily, poor growth
soft systolic murmur heard in pulmonic space; wide S2 split. Treatment of ASD Echo shows RV overload and shunt size cxray and EKG may be normal unless a large shunt surgery to close or a patch via catheter during Cardiac Cath. atrial arrhythmias can be a late sx or associated with a large ASD involving
conduction system in the septum FIGURE 267 A, Septal occluder used to close an atrial septal defect (ASD) and less commonly to close a ventricular septal defect (VSD).

Atrioventricular Canal: Endocardial Cushing Defect accounts for 4-5% of CHD partial or complete ASD/VSD with some degree of involvement of mitral/tricuspid valves variable associated with Downs syndrome severity of sx depends on degree of mitral regurgitation. sx in infants: CHF, tachypnea, tachycardia, FTT, incr URI, systolic murmur (LLSB)
Treatment of AV Canal surgery during infancy to prevent PHT patches placed over septal defects; mitral valve replacement arrhythmias and mitral valve insufficiency occur post/op no difference between short term survival rates in infants with or without Downs syndrome. Ventricular Septal Defect; VSD
opening in the ventricular septum shunts L to R; increases pulmonary bld flow most common: accounts for 20% CHD only 15% large enough to generate symptoms: tachypnea, dyspnea,, FTT, reduced fluid intake, CHF, PHT.
systolic murmur ; LLSB most small VSD close spontaneously Treatment of VSD if no sx CHF or PHT, treatment is conservative surgical patching during infancy if FTT closure by transcatheter device during CC for some defects: Rashkind procedure. prophylaxis for infective endocarditis is required high risk for surgical repair in first few months of life
Acyanotic; obstructive lesions PS AoS Coarctation of the Aorta Pathophysiology of Acyanotic, obstructive CHD narrowing across the valves causes pressure overload and hypertrophy of the closest ventricle child will have a murmur
some experience fatigue and exercise intol d/t inability to increase CO many are asympto and grow normally older children: exercise induced dizziness and syncope: requires immediate attention Pulmonary Stenosis: PS narrowing of the pulmonary valve or valvular area obstructs flow to the PA increases pre-load; results in RVH

SBE prophylaxis needed.
Cyanotic Heart Defects Tetralogy of Fallot Transposition of the Great Vessels caused by malformation or a combination of defects that prevent adequate level of oxygenation R to L shunt occurs resulting in chronic hypoxemia and cyanosis. Pathophysiology of Cyanotic
Heart Disease P02 is lower than normal; PC02 rises hypoxemia becomes progressively worse as respiratory center overreacts and incr respiratory effort incr resp effort attempts to incr CO; contributes to a downward spiral without intervention at risk for thromboembolism d/t hypoxemia causing polycythemia Clinical Manifestations of
Cyanotic Heart Disease chronic hypoxemia causes fatigue, clubbing, exertional dyspnea, delayed milestones, tire easily with feeding, reduced growth, CHF hypercyanotic (hypoxic) spells: incr rate and depth of respir, incr cyanosis, incr HR, pallor and poor perfusion, agitation and irritability.

Bindler Child Health Nursing: Partnering with Children & Families 2006 by Pearson Education, Inc. Upper Saddle River, New Jersey 07458 All rights reserved. Cyanotic Spell
most signif prob to develop in infants and toddlers with cyanotic heart disease brought on by crying, feeding, exercise, warm bath, or straining to defecate during a hypoxic spell, child will often squat knee to chest to decrease venous return (by incr systemic vascular resistance) from LE which decr CO and relieves the cyanotic spell. Tetralogy of Fallot combination of four defects
pulmonary stenosis: degree determines severity
VSD over-riding of the aorta RVH accounts for 10% of CHD elevated R sided pressures: R to L shunt xray: boot shaped heart d/t RVH risk for metabolic acidosis and syncope. Treatment of TOF total repair is done by 6 mo if cyanotic spells
surgery is not necessarily currative, but most have improved quality of life and improved longevity residual problems: arrhythmias and RV dysfunction lifelong SBE required Transposition of the Great Arteries: TGA position of the PA and Ao are switched life threatening at birth;cyanosis, hypoxia,
acidosis cyanosis does not improve with 02 admin survival depends upon a patent DA and foramen ovale accounts for 5% of CHD may be assoc with an ASD or VSD Treatment of TGA xray show egg on a string prostaglandin E1 used to keep PDA open until palliative procedure

Murmurs in children are not necessarily indicative of pathology but require a careful assessment and possibly a cardiac workup innocent murmurs are more prevalent than
pathologic murmurs caused by increased turbulence of blood flow heard especially well in a child with a thin chest wall Patent Ductus Arteriosus Murmur Pearls some VSDs close spontaneously with time weight gain or growth of the child may increase the probability of success of cardiac surgery
defects that cause PHT are corrected in infancy to prevent irreversible pulmonary vascular disease. major complication of acyanotic heart defects: PHT Cardiac Catheterization used to be used for diagnosis, now more commonly used for treatment potential complications: perf of PA, allergic reaction to contrast media, arrhythmias,
hypotension, stroke, vascular compromise in the leg, and bleeding post cath: activity is limited and pressure dressing is applied risks: thrombosis, hemorrhage, dehydration Nursing care of the child undergoing heart surgery parents may need genetic counseling; fetal echo can id structural heart defects as early as 18-20 weeks; some intrauterine procedures
available. ICU care post-op with intubation and sedation will have an arterial line; may have chest tubes Heart Transplantation improved statistical survival to 5 yrs (65%) d/t improved immunosuppressive protocols and surgical techniques infection and rejection are the major causes of
M&M immunosuppressive drugs: cyclosporine A, azathioprine, and corticosteroids drugs can cause physical side effects prevents immunization with live viruses Pulmonary Artery Hypertension: PHT incr load to the lungs causes pulmonary vascular changes in an attempt to decrease the blood flow inflammation, hypertrophy of the pulm vessels
and fibrosis develop pulmonary venous hypertension develops and leads to R to L shunting, with R sided heart function impaired. life threatening: irreversible Acquired Heart Diseases
inflammatory connective tissue disorder that follows initial infection by group A beta-hemolytic streptococci may lead to permanent mitral or aortic valve damage sx: migratory polyarthritis, subcutaneous nodules, erythema marginatum, fevers, St. Vitus dance (chorea movements) dx: Jones criteria and an elevated ASO Treatment for Rheumatic Fever
