Newborn Screening Update – G6PD DeficiencyJuly 29th, 2022 | Network News
New York State has mandated that birthing hospitals screen certain newborn populations for G6PD deficiency effective June 22, 2022. Newborn providers and pediatric hematologists at Golisano Children’s Hospital are sharing the message, which includes linked resources and a follow-up algorithm below to help guide providers across the region with the screening criteria as well as the necessary follow-up that may be needed once the test results return. Additionally, NYSDOH created a G6PD Deficiency Fact Sheet for Families that can be viewed here.
Providers with questions are invited to contact Julie Riccio, MD, Associate Professor, Department of Pediatrics, Neonatology. For hematology-specific issues, please contact Suzie Noronha, MD, Associate Professor, Department of Pediatrics, Hematology and Oncology.
