Drug screening: A urine specimen can be collected on the baby and sent for a drug screen just like it is done on the mother. Also, the first stool of the baby (meconium) can be analyzed for drugs.

May not matter: If you were found to be impaired on the basis of a field sobriety test, you still may be charged with driving while impaired. Every pill bottle that has meds that can cause CNS depression, dizziness, incoordination etc. should have a label that says NOT to drive until and unless you know how it effects your body. Sometimes it is not any one of the meds, but the combination that causes impairment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Seroconversion: The "window period" is inherently tied to the bodies ability to mount an immune response to HIV. The tests are looking for antibodies to HIV's GP shell. After 6 months time, 99% of people exposed to HIV will have serosconverted. There are other testing modalities..HIV RNA/DNA PCR for example. Branched RNA is another excellent modality. These will show infection virtually immediately. ...Read more

How do I know if I'm on CPS watch list for cord blood testing. Can it detect one time xanex use at 23 weeks pregnant?
Hard to say: If they have ever investigated you or your family they will have a file. Recent contact (yr) would mean it is active. If you show up for delivery & have friends that smell of weed or act suspiciously they will test anyway & call it in. I don't test cord blood if I am looking. One time use at 23 weeks would be unlikely to show up but any later use of anything might. ...Read more
