ACHD: For Referring Physicians
It is recommended that patients with simple forms of congenital heart disease be seen at least once in consultation in an adult congenital heart disease service. Those with moderate and severe conditions should be seen at least yearly in an ACHD service. We recommend that all women with suspected or known congenital heart disease be evaluated when they are contemplating having a child or are in the early stages of pregnancy, to determine their associated cardiovascular risk and the need for management. We also provide counseling for athletic participation.
