MORE about VSD:
Its an opening between the chambers of heart. If the opening is large, the child may breathe faster and harder than normal. Infants may have trouble feeding and growing at a normal rate. High pressure may occur in the blood vessels in the lungs because more blood than normal is being pumped there. Over time this may cause permanent damage to the lung blood vessels, thus a surgical correction is needed as the line of treatment.
