The Blalock Taussig Shunt is an artificial tubing that is sewn from the subclavian or Carotid arteries to the corresponding pulmonary artery. This shunt directs blood to the lungs for oxygenation and provides some cyanotic relief.

This is a drawing based upon (and further developed from) the article "When 'blue babies' grow up: What you need to know about tetralogy of Fallot" by David Fox, Ganesh P Devendra, Stephen A Hart, Richard A Krasuski published in the Cleveland Clinical Journal of Medicine in 2010, 77(11);821-8 PMID: 21048055 Image link: http://www.ccjm.org/content/77/11/821/F1.expansion.html Article link: http://www.ccjm.org/content/77/11/821.long
