Baby Health Screenings Routinely Provided at Plantation General Hospital
At Plantation General Hospital newborn babies are routinely screened for a multitude of conditions and diseases. Within the first 24 hours of birth, we screen all babies for jaundice, hearing and vision problems. Plantation General Hospital was among the first hospitals to offer oxygen saturation screenings.
Endorsed by the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American College of Cardiology Foundation, and the American Heart Association, Plantation General Hospital conducts oxygen saturation testing on all newborns. Abnormal oxygen levels in blood may indicate congenital heart disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or genetic defects. Oxygen saturation testing is an early detection tool to help newborns get the care they need early. If a condition is detected, Plantation General Hospital has pediatric cardiologists, pulmonologists and many specialists on staff all of whom will work together to provide an individualized treatment plan.
