Webinar to Explain CCHD Screening

The rationale for screening for critical congenital heart disease (CCHD) in newborns will be explained during a Texas Department of State Health Services Newborn Screening Grand Rounds webinar from 11 am to 12:45 pm CT on Nov. 8. 

Elena Catherina Ocampo, MD, a member of the Cardiovascular Intensive Care Section of Pediatric Cardiology at Texas Children's Hospital in Houston, will discuss supporting evidence for the use of pulse oximetry in the newborn nursery to detect CCHD.

The legislature passed a bill requiring CCHD screening earlier this year.
