ASD or atrial septal defect refers to the common congenital heart defect. It is the condition more frequently found in girls compared to boys. In layman’s terms, the condition develops due to the formation of a hole in the septum that separated the atria, the two upper chambers of the heart. Small atrial septal defects can close without any treatment. But, larger ones need medical intervention, or else it can lead to damage of the lungs and heart. The child can suffer greatly due to the severe form of ASD.
Similarly, PDA refers to another heart defect found at the birth of a child. Patent ductus arteriosus affects girl babies more. Due to the condition, the ductus arteriosus aiding the fetal blood circulation stays open even after the birth of the baby. It usually closes by itself once the baby starts to breathe. When it remains open, the lungs cannot handle extra blood leading to fluid buildup and other complications.
