Depends on details: Some companies have a set of biometrics such as blood sugar, blood cholesterol, etc... for their employees to do. Aside from that, each doctor can customize his or her own set of tests to do. Thus, if doing a health screening through the employer, follow the employer's instructions. If doing it through one's primary care provider, follow the doctor's instructions. No worries.

Passing it: Babies should be passing their hearing tests. If failing it at birth then needs repeat test and might need further testing. If fails hearing later on in life, then might be attributed to wax, fluid in ears, infection, or some other abnormality to the inner ear.

What is nuchal translucency screening?

Dr. Erin Alward
Obstetrics and Gynecology 17 years experience
Down screening: Nuchal translucency is measuring the thickness of the baby's neck on an ultrasound in the first trimester. This measurement, along with some bloodwork from the Mom, is a screening test for Down syndrome in the baby. It detects pregnancies that are at increased risk. The only way to know for sure is to do genetic tests on the baby's cells. This can be done with CVS or amniocentesis.
