To determine whether the 1991 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention lead poisoning prevention guidelines for biannual screening and retesting are feasible among a high-risk population.
For 632 urban high-risk children aged 9 to 25 months who used a pediatric primary care center between 1989 and 1991, we assessed physician screening practices and the need to increase utilization to meet guidelines for retesting.
Analysis also focused on missed opportunities for lead screening.
For 425 urban highrisk children who were long-term utilizers of the center, we assessed the need to increase utilization to meet guidelines for biannual screening.
