Texas Children's Hospital is helping lead the way for other hospitals to screen for heart defects in babies.  http://www.texaschildrensblog.org/2013/08/simple-screening-for-critical-congenital-heart-disease-can-save-your-newborns-life/  There's no reason for this test not to be done in all newborns.
