Tetralogy of Fallot, as one of the potential and frequent congenital heart diseases, can often undergo correction, if it is readily recognized, and it is up to the teams closest to the NB to be attentive to symptoms. As a representative of this care, the nursing team stands out, with a high level of theoretical and technical capacity, as well as the potential for the formation of bonds with patients and families, facilitating the recognition of illness and work focused on their interventions. The present study aimed to work and know the pathophysiological process of tetralogy, as well as therapeutic processes and the nursing action in this regard. Methods: The methodology has as its nature the bibliographic review, enabling the finding of many materials and discussions on the subject.
