Newborn screening

 
Newborn screening is a set of tests that check newborn babies for serious, rare disorders. Most of these disorders can't be seen at birth but can be treated if found early. In Colorado, newborns have these tests:
 
Blood spot screening follow-up, health care provider and midwife information, expectant and new parents, resources, contact information
 
Newborn hearing screening
Screening information, provider resources, contact information
 
Testing blood oxygen levels to screen for a set of serious, life-threatening heart defects
