New Born Baby Screening

NEW BORN BABY SCREENING:

 

                  

                      Most newborns are perfectly normal. A very small minority, however, have disorders or illnesses that might not be obvious at birth.


Newborn screening helps your doctor identify any problems before your baby develops permanent damage or an irreversible disease. The goal is to reduce the effects of any conditions through earlier treatment. 

 

The tests includes:


  • Blood grouping and Rh typing
  • Complete Blood Count + ESR
  • Routine urine analysis
  • Stool routine analysis (optional)
  • Mantoux test
  • X-Ray - Chest
  • Dental consultation
  • Ophthalmology consultation
  • ENT consultation
  • Paediatric consultation
