Helen B. Taussig is known as the founder of pediatric cardiology. She ended up plainly well known through her work with Tetralogy of Fallot, an intrinsic heart imperfection in which oxygenated and deoxygenated blood enters the circulatory framework coming about because of a ventricular septal deformity (VSD) ideal underneath the aorta. This condition makes babies have a somewhat blue tint, cyanosis, and have a lack of oxygen to their tissues, hypoxemia. She worked with Alfred Blalock and Vivien Thomas at Johns Hopkins Hospital where they explored different avenues regarding puppies to take a gander at how they would endeavor to surgically cure these "blue infants." They in the long run made sense of how to do only that by the anastomosis of the foundational corridor to the pneumonic supply route and called this the Blalock-Taussig Shunt.
