CCHD Screening and Resources
Screening for CCHD by Pulse Oximetry became mandatory for all Wyoming Newborns on December 1, 2017. This means that every baby born in Wyoming will be screened for CCHD prior to discharge. Babies born out of hospital settings are also required to be screened. This screen measures oxygen in the newborn’s blood, is easy and painless, and is usually done when the newborn is between 24 to 48 hours old.
