Testing for Atrial Septal Defect (ASD)
Testing for atrial septal defect (ASD) really depends on when the patient is suspected of having a heart condition. The congenital birth defect of atrial septal defect means that there is a hole in the septum or wall that separates the upper left and right chambers of the heart – giving it the name of atrial (meaning chamber) septal (referring to the septal wall) defect.


A hole in the septum can be minimal and lead to no symptoms and no immediate health concerns, or the hole can be extensive and cause immediate and pervasive danger to the patient. The hole changes the blood flow, allowing blood that already has oxygen move back through to the right chamber and on to the lungs, where it should not be going. In some cases ASD is suspected before the baby is born, and further prenatal testing can be done. In other cases, the defect is not suspected until the patient is an adult and experiences symptoms for the first time.


Testing Options
Prenatal Ultrasound – Ultrasounds during pregnancy might lead doctors to suspect that a fetus has an atrial septa defect. Other birth defects such as cleft lip might be visualized during a routine ultrasound, leading obstetricians to request cardiac consultation, as cleft lips and palates sometimes accompany heart defects.


Echocardiogram – This is probably the most common test used for diagnosing and monitoring atrial septal defects. In this test sound waves form a video image of the heart, giving doctors an active yet non-invasive way of visualizing the working heart. Cardiologists can see the distinct portions of the heart, including each atria (chamber) and the septum (wall) that separates the chambers. An echo can also let cardiologists measure how the heart pumps blood from one side to the other and to the rest of the body. Because echocardiograms are not invasive, they can be used to monitor patients over the years without causing side effects or requiring recovery.


Chest X-rays – This test option is not usually the test of choice for diagnosing atrial septal defects, but it can be the case that a patient has a chest x-ray for another reason and signs of ASD appear on the images, such as swelling of or damage to the heart or lungs.


Electrocardiograms – This test, otherwise known as ECG, records electrical impulses of the heart. This is often a test used to check suspected heart murmurs, which might lead to an echocardiogram for diagnosing ASD.


Cardiac catheterization – This is both a testing option and a treatment option. In a cardiac catheterization, a thin, flexible tube is snaked through a blood vessel to the heart. Once inside it can be used to visualize the defect, test the pumping ability of the heart, and also repair the hole if need be.
