Conventional timing of newborn pulse oximetry screening is not ideal for infants born out-of-hospital.
We implemented a newborn pulse oximetry screen to align with typical midwifery care and measure its efficacy at detecting critical congenital heart disease.
Cohort study of expectant mothers and infants mainly from the Amish and Mennonite (Plain) communities with limited prenatal ultrasound use.
Newborns were screened at 1 to 4 hours of life (“early screen”) and 24 to 48 hours of life (“late screen”).
Newborns were followed up to 6 weeks after delivery to report outcomes. Early screen, late screen, and combined results were analyzed on the basis of strict algorithm interpretation (“algorithm”) and the midwife’s interpretation in the field (“field”) because these did not correspond in all cases.
