The incidence of congenital heart disease (CHD) is reported around 6 to 8 in every 1000 live births. Depending upon the anatomical defects and physiological changes after birth, various clinical presentations of CHD are expected; some present as very unstable immediately after birth, whereas others do not become symptomatic until after several weeks of life.
