AN  ACT to amend the public health law, in relation to requiring facili-
  ties to perform pulse oximetry screening on newborns

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.  Legislative intent.   Congenital heart defects (CHDs) are
structural abnormalities of the heart that are present  at  birth;  CHDs
range in severity from simple problems such as holes between chambers of
the  heart, to severe malformations, such as the complete absence of one
or more chambers or valves; some critical  CHDs  can  cause  severe  and
life-threatening  symptoms  which  require intervention within the first
days of life.
  According to the United States Secretary of Health and Human Services'
Advisory Committee on Heritable  Disorders  in  Newborns  and  Children,
congenital  heart  disease  affects approximately seven to nine of every
1,000 live births in the United States and Europe. The  federal  Centers
for  Disease Control and Prevention states that CHD is the leading cause
of infant death due to birth defects.
  Current methods for detecting CHDs generally include  prenatal  ultra-
sound  screening  and  repeated  clinical  examinations;  while prenatal
ultrasound screenings can detect some major  congenital  heart  defects,
these  screenings,  alone, identify less than half of all CHD cases, and
critical CHD cases  are  often  missed  during  routine  clinical  exams
performed prior to a newborn's discharge from a birthing facility.
  Pulse oximetry is a non-invasive test that estimates the percentage of
hemoglobin  in  blood that is saturated with oxygen. When performed on a
newborn a minimum of 24 hours after birth, pulse oximetry  screening  is
often  more effective at detecting critical, life-threatening CHDs which
otherwise go undetected by  current  screening  methods.  Newborns  with
