The pain and discomfort you may feel as a result is called angina. However, some infants with critical CHD, particularly those with ductal-dependent lesions ( table 1 ), may appear normal with either no or very subtle signs and symptoms. (See 'Postnatal diagnosis' above and 'Clinical features' above and 'Asymptomatic neonates' above.) ●Diagnostic evaluation of symptomatic neonates includes physical examination, pulse oximetry, chest radiograph, electrocardiogram (ECG), hyperoxia test ( table 5 ), and echocardiography. (See 'Symptomatic neonates' above.) ●In otherwise asymptomatic infants, physical findings that are suggestive of CHD include abnormal cardiovascular examination (ie, abnormal heart rate, precordial activity, or heart sounds; pathologic murmurs; diminished/absent peripheral pulses or blood pressure ≥10 mmHg higher in the arms than legs); and extracardiac anomalies ( table 8 ). (See 'Physical examination' above.) ●We suggest that screening for critical CHD using pulse oximetry ( algorithm 1 ) be performed in all newborns after 24 hours of life (or as late as possible if early discharge is planned) ( Grade 2C ).
