February is National Congenital Heart Defect month! 

Did you know 1 in 125 children (about 35,000 in the US alone) will be diagnosed with a CHD this year? 

There are more than 2 dozen identified defects.

Some children can live their entire life and not even know they have a defect. Others might only get to take a precious few breaths.

A simple pulse ox screening done after birth can greatly improve detection, treatment, and survival.
