Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Week in Ohio

Calendar topics: Health Calendar
Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is a birth defect of the diaphragm. The most common type of CDH is a Bochdalek hernia; other types include Morgagni hernia, diaphragm eventration and central tendon defects of the diaphragm. Malformation of the diaphragm allows the abdominal organs to push into the chest cavity, hindering proper lung formation.
CDH is a life-threatening pathology in infants and a major cause of death due to two complications: pulmonary hypoplasia and pulmonary hypertension. Experts disagree on the relative importance of these two conditions, with some focusing on hypoplasia, others on hypertension. Newborns with CDH often have severe respiratory distress which can be life-threatening unless treated appropriately.
The calendar week including the seventeenth day of July is designated as "Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Week."
(Ohio Revised Code. GENERAL PROVISIONS. Chapter 5: STATE INSIGNIA; SEALS; HOLIDAYS. 5.2280 Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Week.)
Added by 130th General Assembly File No. TBD, HB 105, 1, eff. 6/12/2014.
