Congenital Heart Defects are the #1 Birth Defect! 1 in 100 babies are born with a heart defect. Yet, even with those devastating numbers there is no standard pulse oximetry testing of newborns before they leave he hospital. Because of this many babies die. A simple, non-invasive, low cost test can save many lives. Babies have hearing tests before they are released but do not have their oxygen levels in their blood test with this simple test. Please help us in getting this approved in New York.
