GUTIERREZ-PADILLA, José Alfonso et al. Neurodisability diagnosis in the neonatal period in Mexico, results of a survey of health personnel. Perinatol. Reprod. Hum. [online]. 2012, vol.26, n.1, pp.30-34. ISSN 0187-5337.

Introduction: In Mexico there is uncertainty about the human and technological resources available for the diagnosis of neurodisability, so the objective of the present study was: to determine the availability of those resources and to identify the existence of programs to establish the diagnosis in the neonatal period, in different workplaces in the country. Material and methods: During the Sixteenth National Congress of Neonatology, held by the National Federation of Neonatology of Mexico, in February 2011 in Cancún, Mexico. It was conducted a survey among pediatricians, neonatologists, nurses, and health personnel working in the country. Results: 65% answered that in their workplace have screening programs for: retinopathy of prematurity, deafness, cerebral palsy, mental retardation epilepsy, also the respondents mentioned that count with the following specialists at their institutions: neurologists, ophthalmologist and personal for the detection of deafness. Conclusions: The picture is bleak; in all areas reported coverage less than 70%. It is noted that for detection of blindness and deafness there are more resources available. The rest of the problems investigated have severe negative indicators. So it is urgent to legislate currently in the field of neonatology, questioning the efficacy and safety of some treatments and their contribution to neurological damage.
