Abstract
The objective of this study was to assess exercise performance in subjects born in Sweden between 1980 and 1995 and undergoing surgery for pulmonary atresia and intact ventricular septum and to identify determinants of exercise performance. Twenty-seven subjects, 16 with biventricular repair and 11 with univentricular palliation, and 28 age- and sex-matched controls completed cardiopulmonary exercise and lung function testing. Peak oxygen uptake was determined using a symptom-limited ramp bicycle exercise protocol. Regression analysis was performed to identify predictors of peak oxygen uptake (V'O(2)), The index group had lower peak V'O(2) (1.4 [median 0.8; range 2.5] l/min) than controls (1.9 [0.7; 3.1]; p

Abstract
OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the use of pulse oximetry to screen for early detection of life threatening congenital heart disease. DESIGN: Prospective screening study with a new generation pulse oximeter before discharge from well baby nurseries in West Götaland. Cohort study comparing the detection rate of duct dependent circulation in West Götaland with that in other regions not using pulse oximetry screening. Deaths at home with undetected duct dependent circulation were included. SETTING: All 5 maternity units in West Götaland and the supraregional referral centre for neonatal cardiac surgery. PARTICIPANTS: 39,821 screened babies born between 1 July 2004 and 31 March 2007. Total duct dependent circulation cohorts: West Götaland n=60, other referring regions n=100. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Sensitivity, specificity, positive and negative predictive values, and likelihood ratio for pulse oximetry screening and for neonatal physical examination alone. RESULTS: In West Götaland 29 babies in well baby nurseries had duct dependent circulation undetected before neonatal discharge examination. In 13 cases, pulse oximetry showed oxygen saturations
