The article presents information related to surgical palliation of hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS). Surgical palliation is accomplished through a 3-stage operative procedure, called staged palliation which replaces traditional modified Blalock-Taussig shunt procedure. However, extensive nursing care of a neonate undergoing stage I palliation for HLHS are needed to assess the patient for cardiac dysfunction, electrolyte abnormalities, hypoxemia etc.
