Victory for Pulse Ox!

by Allyson P. on Sunday, March 2, 2014

Victory!! The Pulse Ox Bill is on the Governor’s desk! Thanks to your continued advocacy the House and Senate took final action and passed the legislation that would require newborn screening for congenital heart defects with pulse ox! This would not have been possible without our legislative champions and our dedicated advocates. As you know this non-invasive, low cost test can make a big difference. By passing this bill, and making pulse oximetry screening mandatory for all newborns across Massachusetts, we will be protecting our youngest babies through early detection of previously undiagnosed congenital heart disease.

Thank you for your continued advocacy and we hope to have the Governor sign this critical legislation quickly!
