Congenital heart defect (CHD)… 
Congenital heart anomaly is a defect in the structure of the heart and great vessels that is present at birth. Many types of heart defects exist, most of which either obstruct blood flow in the heart or vessels near it, or cause blood to flow through the heart in an abnormal pattern. Other defects, such as long QT syndrome, affect the heart’s rhythm. Heart defects are among the most common birth defects and are the leading cause of birth defect-related deaths. Approximately 9 people in 1000 are born with a congenital heart defect. Many defects do not need treatment, but some complex congenital heart defects require medication or surgery.


Congenital heart defects resulted in 323,000 deaths in 2013 down from 366,000 deaths in 1990.
Signs and symptoms are related to type and severity of the heart defect. Symptoms frequently present early in life, but it is possible for some CHDs to go undetected throughout life. Some children have no signs while others may exhibit shortness of breath, cyanosis, fainting,heart murmur, under-development of limbs and muscles, poor feeding or growth, or respiratory infections. Congenital heart defects cause abnormal heart structure resulting in production of certain sounds called heart murmur. These can sometimes be detected by auscultation; however, not all heart murmurs are caused by congenital heart defects.


The cause of congenital heart disease…
May be either genetic or environmental, but is usually a combination of both.


Maternal obesity…
As noted in several studies following similar body mass index (BMI) ranges, prepregnant and gestating women, who were obese (BMI ≥ 30), carried a statistically significant risk of birthing children with congenital heart defects (CHD) compared to normal-weight women (BMI= 19–24.9). Although there are minor conflicting reports, there was significant support for the risk of fetal CHD development in overweight mothers (BMI= 25-29.9). Additionally, as maternal obesity increased, the risk of heart defects did too indicating a trend between BMI and CHD odds. Altogether, these results present reasonable concern for women to achieve a normal-weight BMI prior to pregnancy to help decrease risk for fetal heart defects.

A distinct physiological mechanism has not been identified to explain the link between maternal obesity and CHD, but both pre-pregnancy folate deficiency and diabetes have been implicated in some studies. Identification of the mechanism could aid health officials to develop reduction strategies and curb CHD’s prevalence in this preventable situation.

Presented at Day 1 of Science meets Parliament (SmP) 2014 by Dr Inger Mewburn (aka the Thesis Whisperer), Director of Research Training at ANU.  For more information about SmP 2014 go here:http://scienceandtechnologyaustralia View her Twitter cheat sheet here: https://sites.google.com/site/twblack….


Twitter lingo: a cheat sheet

thesiswhisperer.com | @thesiswhisper

RT – ‘retweet’: Passing along what someone else has tweeted. You can do this by using the retweet function, which makes the original tweet appear in your timeline, or by editing the original tweet to include the letters ‘RT’:

“This is cool! RT @thesiswhisperer Research Rocks? Stonehenge might be big bells http://buff.ly/1nmbFYb”

It is polite to RT because you are acknowledging that someone else found that cool thing before you did. People sometimes ask for RTs to spread a message further.

MT – ‘modified tweet’: Similar to RT, but used when you modify someone’s original tweet:

“This is cool! MT @thesiswhisperer Stonehenge might be big bells http://buff.ly/1nmbFYb”

It is appropriate to acknowledge that you have changed someone’s words.

HT – ‘Hat tip to’ or ‘heard through’: Use this when you tweet a link another person sent, without their text:

“This is cool! Stonehenge might be a collection of big bells http://buff.ly/1nmbFYb HT @thesiswhisperer”

You might also use ‘via’ and then include the handle.

DM – ‘direct message’: Only someone you are following can send you one. You can no longer include a link in a DM because of numerous hacking scams.

Using handles to have different kinds of conversations: Putting someone’s handle anywhere in a tweet is called a ‘mention’. Mentions can be used to strategically draw others’ attention to what you are saying depending on where you put the handle.

1) Putting a handle at the start of the tweet is like talking to someone at a crowded party. By restricting the tweet’s visibility only to those who follow you and the person you mentioned, you have created the chance of being ‘overheard’ by the people hanging around both of you.

2) If you include a handle anywhere else in a tweet, a specific person will see the mention, but the tweet will still visible in the timeline of everyone following you. This is like sticking a note addressed to your friend on a wall so anyone passing by can read it.

Careful use of mentions makes you build relationships with people who have similar interests by creating meaningful conversations, rather than ‘shouting’ all the time.
