Newborn Heart Defect Screening Awareness Day

November 30th is Newborn Heart Defect Screening Awareness Day.

What is newborn heart defect screening? Also called pulse oximetry screening, it's a simple, noninvasive screening. Pulse ox saves lives!

One in 100 babies are born with a congenital heart defect, and on average less than half are detected before birth. With late diagnosis, babies can suffer life-long delays and disabilities and even death.
