About Atrial Septal Defect

Atrial Heart Septal Defect, also known as atrial septal defect, is related to patent foramen ovale and interatrial communication. An important gene associated with Atrial Heart Septal Defect is NKX2-5 (NK2 Homeobox 5), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Cardiac conduction and Human Embryonic Stem Cell Pluripotency. The drugs Dexmedetomidine and Acetylsalicylic acid have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include in the septum, heart and lung, and related phenotypes are homeostasis/metabolism and growth/size/body region

Major Symptoms of Atrial Septal Defect

1. Adjust diet: avoid high-cholesterol, high-fat, and high-salt foods, and eat more vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and low-fat protein foods.

2. Moderate exercise: Moderate aerobic exercise can improve cardiopulmonary function, enhance the body's immunity, and alleviate the condition.
