Background: Atrial septal defect (ASD) is the most common congenital heart disease diagnosed in adulthood. Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is one of the associated complications of ASD. Increase in pulmonary arterial pressure causes the oxygen saturation decreases. A compensatory erythrocytosis happens. Thus, a study needs to be done to determine the correlation between mean pulmonary arterial pressure (mPAP) and hemoglobin (Hb) level in patients with atrial septal defect. Objectives: The objective… CONTINUE READING
