Dr. Kheya Ghosh Uttam: About Newborn Screening Test | Pediatric oncall
Description
This videos aims to raise awareness in society about the newborn screening test.
Newborn screening is important for the early detection of many congenital genetic and metabolic disorders, aimed at the earliest possible recognition and management of affected newborns, to prevent the morbidity, mortality, and disabilities associated with an inherited metabolic disorder. This comprehensive system includes; testing, education, follow up, diagnosis, treatment, management, and evaluation. There are major differences among many of the disorders being considered for inclusion in newborn screening programs. In recent times, advances in laboratory technology such as tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS), which is more specific, sensitive, reliable, and comprehensive than traditional assays, has increased the number of genetic conditions that can be diagnosed through neonatal screening programs at birth. With a single dried filter paper blood spot, MS/MS can identify more than 30 inherited metabolic disorders in around two to three minutes. Advances in the diagnosis and treatment and an increased understanding of the natural history of inborn errors of metabolism have produced pressure to implement expanded newborn screening programs in many countries.
