The Healthy Hearts of Babies Act in 2015 is a common-sense law makes sure that all newborns are screened for critical congenital heart defects (CCHD) using pulse oximetry, which is the most effective way to screen for CCHD. We know this screening works. However, now there is a threat to this mandated screening. New legislation in the DC Council would continue to require CCHD screening, but would eliminate the provision that it be done using pulse oximetry. Let the DC Council know that you value all newborns in the District having the chance at heart health. Tell them to keep the pulse oximetry requirement in the BABIES Act.
