Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The identification of selected parameters in newborn infants by various tests, examinations, or other procedures. Screening may be performed by clinical or laboratory measures. A screening test is designed to sort out healthy neonates (INFANT, NEWBORN) from those not well, but the screening test is not intended as a diagnostic device, rather instead as epidemiologic.

Dextrocardia may adversely affect other thoracic organs.

Instructional use of examples or cases to teach using problem-solving skills and critical thinking.
