Newborn screening is the process of testing newborn babies for some serious, but treatable, conditons. Newborn screening can include a heel stick, hearing screen, and pulse oximetry. The conditions that newborn babies are screened for varies by state.

“How to Complete Iowa Newborn Screening Cards” is a step-by-step manual for the blood spot collection process, and answers many related questions. The manual is designed as a small flip chart that can easily be hung on a bulletin board or wall, and quickly accessed by those tasked with this vital step in newborn screening. It augments other training by professional organizations, other birthing facility staff or midwives.

To learn more about the Newborn Screening instructional flip chart, contact Ashley Comer at the State Hygienic Laboratory. For more information about the Iowa Newborn Screen Program, contact Kim Piper at the Iowa Department of Public Health.
