How to Honor the Heart Defect Victims of this Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Day?

Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Day is a day to honor and recall everyone born with a heart defect. The primary purpose of this day is to raise awareness about the heart disease. It is also the time to appreciate the medical professionals who take care of the affected children and the researchers who work to cure or to prevent this defect in the future. Every year this day is held on the 14th of February which is also Valentine’s Day. Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) is the most common birth defect and is the leading cause of birth-defect related deaths in the United States.

Statistics about CHD:

According to the studies made by cdc.gov

  • CHDs affect nearly 1%, which is about 40,000 births per year in the United States.
  • The prevalence (the number of babies born with heart defect compared to the total number of births) of some CHDs, especially mild types, is increasing, while the prevalence of other types has remained stable.
  • About 25% of babies with a CHD have a critical CHD. Infants with critical CHDs generally need surgery or other procedures in their first year of life.
  • The prevalence of all types of CHDs, including critical CHDs, varies by state and by type of defect.

Survival of infants with CHDs depends on how severe the defect is when it is diagnosed, and how it is treated.
