Identifying maternal self-reported alcohol use associated with fetal alcohol spectrum disorders.

Identifying maternal self-reported alcohol use associated with fetal alcohol spectrum disorders. The incidence of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS) has been estimated at 1 to 3 per 1,000 live births. Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) (which include FAS) are estimated to occur in about 1 in 100 births. Cessation of drinking during pregnancy can improve the outcome even if the unborn child is already affected. For individuals born with FASD, an early diagnosis appears to be a protective factor against secondary disabilities. A quick screening tool to identify newborn children at risk has been elusive. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Alcoholism, clinical and experimental research Pubmed

Cessation of drinking during pregnancy can improve the outcome even if the unborn child is already affected. For individuals born with FASD, an early diagnosis appears to be a protective factor against secondary disabilities. A quick screening tool to identify newborn children at risk has been elusive.
