The S.T.A.B.L.E. - Cardiac Module provides general guidelines for the assessment
and stabilization of neonates with suspected, severe forms of congenital heart
disease (CHD). Prompt, effective, and appropriate care of neonates with severe CHD
can reduce secondary organ damage, improve short and long-term outcomes, and
reduce morbidity and mortality.  This information is presented in a highly visual
format using an animated PowerPoint® slide presentation, and is divided into three
main sections: Part 1: Physical exam of neonates with suspected CHD and the
differential diagnosis Part 2: Review of the anatomic features, clinical presentation
and initial stabilization of neonates with CHD, and emphasizes differentiation of
cardiac from pulmonary disease. Specific heart lesions are covered in detail. Part 3:
Modifications to the six S.T.A.B.L.E. assessment components that are necessary
when caring for neonates with suspected CHD.
