Tests

We monitor your baby’s conditions closely by performing a number of different tests. One of these is the blood test. The blood is drawn by pricking the heel or hand, or drawn from an arterial catheter. Upon indication we may also perform an ultrasound (scan) of the brains or the heart.

Information on the different tests can be found below.
