Critical Congenital Heart Defect (CCHD)
Screening Project

Monday thru Friday - 8 am to 5 pm


Data Reporting

An important part of the Utah CCHD Screening Project is collecting data to find out how well pulse oximetry screening is working. The results of pulse oximetry screening for CCHD will be recorded on the birth certificate. When the birth certificates are processed at the Utah Department of Health, the CCHD screening results will be reported weekly to the CCHD Screening Program.

Data Reporting Form

In addition to the birth certificate, all babies who are diagnosed with CCHD will become part of the Utah Birth Defect Network. All babies diagnosed with CCHD, including those diagnosed prenatally, on newborn physical exam, through CCHD Screening, and later clinical presentation up to one year of age will be included in this registry.
