The second section details the anatomic features, clinical presentation and initial stabilization of neonates with CHD, and emphasizes differentiation of cardiac from pulmonary disease. The final section discusses modifications to the six S.T.A.B.L.E. assessment components that are necessary when caring for neonates with suspected or confirmed CHD.
