What is the difference between an obligatory and dependent shunt?
Obligatory is also known as an atrio-ventricular septal defect - where there is cross over of blood all over depending on pressures
Dependent shunt is more one way flow from L-R for example
What can cause R-L shunting?
Pulmonary artery disease - Eisenmenger
Increases pressure in R heart above that of left
What is hypoplastic left heart syndrome?

What is Ebstein's Anomaly?
Deformed and displaced tricuspid valve
