RNs, nurse practitioners, cardiologists, echocardiology technicians and dozens of student nurses in their pediatric rotation of nursing school filled the MGM Grand Conference Center for a day dedicated to updates on pediatric cardiology. "Trends in Congenital Heart Disease: Diagnosis and Treatment" was at the heart of lecture topics presented to more than 2,000 attendees Nov. 5 during the 15th annual Pediatric Heart Conference in Las Vegas.

"This is one of my favorite conferences all year because it involves so many disciplines coming together for the good of children," said Donna Enrico, course coordinator of pediatrics in Nursing at the College of Southern Nevada in Las Vegas.

A topic of conversation this year that impressed many participants was fetal intervention therapy, including open transumbilical fetal cardiac catheterization, fetal bypass surgery and direct cardiac surgery and cardioversion.

"I had no idea technology was so advanced that heart surgery could be performed on babies before they were even born," said Celeste Kim, nursing student from the College of Southern Nevada.

Sponsored by Children's Heart Center of Nevada, this annual educational event declares its commitment to making a positive difference in the lives of children with heart conditions throughout Nevada. The nonprofit organization also sponsors two cost-free medically supervised camps for children with congenital and acquired heart conditions.
