    First sentence is not correct - it‘s NOT a rare respiratory condition - CoA actually is recognized by the AHA as a common congenital heart defect. Not that I support unnecessary litigation, but I find it hard to believe noone put a stethoscope to his chest (he supposedly had breathing problems AND discoloration - the latter being a typical symptom of poor circulation) and did not hear a murmur. When I was 6 years old, 40 years ago, a simple ER visit for a bad cold and fever, the doctors detected a mitral valve regurg. Medicine hasn‘t progressed in 40 years?
