With major advances in the field of pediatric cardiology over the past few decades, outlook for children with congenital heart disease has improved immensely. Congenital heart defects, which were once considered incompatible with life are now regularly managed immediately after birth with good survival. Better understanding of basic cardiovascular physiology behind such emergencies, has led to more focused and etiology oriented management resulting in better outcome. Through this article we aim to present some of the recent advances; both medical and interventional, which are changing the way we approach common pediatric cardiac emergencies.
