  1. Fulltext. Screening for childhood lead poisoning : a cost-minimization analysis.

    Article - En anglais

    Fulltext.

    Decision analysis was used to compare the costs of three screening strategies for childhood lead poisoning:

    • (1) venipuncture;

    • (2) capillary sample with venipuncture confirmation if the blood lead level is elevated;

    • (3) stratification by risk, with venipuncture for high-risk children and capillary sample for low-risk children.

    Under baseline conditions, the cost of screening by the venipuncture, stratification, and capillary strategies is $22, $25, and $27, respectively.

    Venipuncture remains the least expensive strategy unless the cost of venipuncture is more than three times that of capillary sampling.
