The goal of the Wisconsin SHINE Project is to make sure all newborns are screened for Critical Congenital Heart Disease (CCHD) using pulse oximetry. The good news is that most hospitals in Wisconsin are already screening for CCHD.
Hospitals participating in the Wisconsin SHINE Project will be provided with the following assistance:
- Basic Pulse Oximetry Screening Information
- Standardized protocols for CCHD Screening in the Well Baby Nursery and NICU
- 24 Hour technical assistance for questions about screening policy or procedure
- Staff and parent education materials
In return, results of pulse oximetry screening at participating hospitals will be collected in a database and used to evaluate universal screening for CCHD in newborns.
