There is a petition currently collecting signatures to require pulse ox test on newborns. This test can detect complications such as congenital heart defects (many times because this test is not routine, parents learn only after their child experiences complications from the defect). CHDs kill more newborns that any other condition or accident or even SIDS.

I'm not pushing for signatures, but if this is something that you think is important, please check it out.

I signed it a long time ago. Ava is an airway baby, so I agree with this petition.

Thanks Carrie doesn't have a CHD, but her O2 sat plummeted shortly after she was born and a pulse ox would have caught it. It could have easily caused damage (it's assumed every time we have a new pedi that that incident caused CP, but then it's ruled out)

i3ai3ydanny - it's done at some hospitals, but it's not mandated so most don't do it
