This blood will subsequently flow from the right ventricle into the pulmonary artery. Patients with a large left-to-right shunt often have increased work of breathing, because their lungs are overfilled with blood. The increased cardiac output causes an increased metabolic rate, and the increased work of breathing often means that the infants with large left-to-right shunts cannot eat as well as a child who breathes normally. The total energy expenditure in infants with ventricular septal defects and congestive heart failure symptoms can be 50% higher than the energy expenditure of age matched control infants [5].
