Hello Ani,

Thank you for the question.

Ventricular Septal Defect or VSD is a congenital heart defect where there is a gap or hole that connects the two lower chambers of the heart or what is called a ventricle. This condition is characterized by symptoms of difficulty breathing, breathing often fast, often affected by inflammatory diseases of the respiratory tract (one of which is a long cough), and bluish in the lips or nails. This is caused by a process that occurs since the fetus is still in the womb, which is also influenced by genetic factors. The doctor will usually diagnose this disease by exploring the history of complaints, conducting physical examinations, and supporting examinations such as echocardiography.

VSD is treated depending on the symptoms experienced by the child and the size of the hole in the heart / ventricular space. The doctor can monitor the child's condition periodically to see the development of the ventricular hole to see if the hole shrinks and closes on its own, because in most cases of VSD, the hole closes with itself at the age of the child entering school. However, if the ventricular opening is large, causes many symptoms, and causes an enlarged heart and disrupts the function of the heart valves, the doctor will recommend surgery. Therefore, you should discuss it with your child's specialist doctor and do not forget to continue to periodically control to monitor the development of holes in the ventricles.

In addition, the thing that you need to pay attention to is to increase nutrition intake in children, because children who have medical conditions like this can experience difficulties in growth and development, such as by giving enough extra milk and high-calorie formula milk together with additional calories in MPASI this 7 month old child.

Hopefully this information can help.
