Hi,

Thank you for your query.

A number of changes take place in the heart in the first few days following birth. The following bare minimum cardiology related investigations are done in such cases apart from other investigations:
1. ECG
2. X-ray chest
3. Echocardiography
Depending on the reports further course of action will be decided. I suggest that you discuss with your doctor and ask for a provisional diagnosis so that we can guide you accordingly.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction. Please feel free to revert back in case you require any clarifications or would like to share any further facts regarding the case.

Wishing your son all the best...

Regards,

RKK

Hi,

Thank you for your query. I appreciate your concern.

There can be a number of conditions and till the investigations mentioned earlier are known it shall not be possible to provide an explanation. Each of the investigations mentioned have their significance to come to a conclusion.

If you can let us know the provisional diagnosis then we can give some guidance.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction. Please feel free to revert back with more information so that we can guide you.

Regards,

RKK
