Newborn Screening (Spanish)
This health education tutorial explains Newborn Screening Test. Newborn screening usually consists of a simple blood test that involves pricking the baby's heel to get a few drops of blood. Multiple tests are run on the blood and if those results are not normal, the lab notifies the baby's doctor. Once diagnosed, treatment can save the baby from death or lifelong health problems.
