Nordic pulse oximetry screening--implementation status and proposal for uniform guidelines.

de-Wahl Granelli A, Meberg A, Ojala T, Steensberg J, Oskarsson G, Mellander M - Acta Paediatr. (2014)

Bottom Line: Preductal and postductal screening were both used in 59 of 116 units (51%), with just postductal screening in 51 of 116 (44%) and just preductal screening alone in 6 of 116 (5%).Screening was performed before 24 h in 105 of 116 units (91%).We propose uniform Nordic guidelines using preductal and postductal screening before 24 h of age.

Mentions: We propose uniform Nordic guidelines (Table 2) based on the Swedish algorithm with the modification to always screen within 24 h of birth. This algorithm is presented in Figure1.
