Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Screening for critical congenital heart disease using pulse oximetry is becoming a standard point of care newborn screen in many developed countries. The benefits and challenges of this newborn screen are unique in other parts of the world where secondary targets and infrastructure development have grown in importance. This Special Issue explores some of these unique challenges and benefits.
