Critical Congenital Heart Disease (CCHD)
Fax (801) 465-6018
Critical Congenital Heart Disease (CCHD) affects the lives and families of approximately 10,000 babies born in the United States every year. While many of these babies may be identified by either a prenatal ultrasound or the newborn exam, some of these babies will appear perfectly healthy. To prevent serious morbidity and mortality resulting from missed or delayed diagnosis of CCHD, all newborns are required to be screened for CCHD using pulse oximetry.
