Track resolutions:

  • We RECOGNIZE that the most common cause of syncope in an otherwise healthy child is neurocardiogenic-benign and transient.
  • We RECOMMEND use of pulse oximetry. Pulse oximetry is a safe, cost effective tool for screening for congenital heart disease
  • We COMMIT to promoting screening for congenital heart disease: prenatal, postnatal and on follow up visits
