Abstract

Better results of congenital heart surgery procedures in recent years can be explained by several factors. These factors are preoperative preparation, intraoperative care, routine postoperative care, and dealing with postoperative complications. Preoperative preparation refers to a careful history and physical examination before the surgical procedure. In intraoperative care, selection of the monitoring devices placed in the operating room for observing patients' condition is taken care of. After the surgery, monitoring and transporting of patients to the ICU and conditions such as patients' airway and breathing, cardiovascular system, renal system, nutrition, and possible infection among others are carefully managed. Postoperative complications such as low cardiac output, pulmonary dysfunction, and renal failure are meticulously assessed and monitored. In general, constant attention to detail before, during, and after the procedure is the key to optimal surgical outcomes.
