Pulse Oximetry Screening in New Zealand

This research study aimed to assess the feasibility of delivering a nationwide pulse oximetry screening programme in New Zealand. It concludes that pulse oximetry is a safe, easy-to-use and effective tool that can identify serious diseases in the newborn before the onset of symptoms. It supports the introduction of a national screening programme, concluding that alternative approaches risk increasing inequity of access to the test.
