Pulse Oximetry Screening for Newborns Passes NC House

Update on the pulse ox bill in North Carolina.  Seems like it's moving along!!  

The Pulse Oximetry screening for newborns bill, House Bill 105, passed
the house unanimously and was sent to the Senate, where it was referred
to Senate Committee on Rules. The bill was amended on the floor of the
House to allow the NC Medical Board to change the requirement if
technology changes and the FDA approves a new method of screening for
congenital heart defects. HB 105 is available to read online at
