December 2013 Care of Infants Who Fail Pulse Oximetry Screening
Newborn pulse ox screenings are now required by law in most states. In Missouri, mandated screening for every neonate prior to hospital discharge begins January 1, 2014. Children's Mercy neonatologists and pediatric cardiologists are available to partner with you to provide the best care possible for newborn babies and their families. Providers who have a question about a baby with a failed screening can call 1-877-PULSE OX (877-785-7369) for collaborative care support from a neonatologist.
