In this study the authors determined the relationship between blood lead concentrations in pregnant women and newborns, using graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrometry (GFAAS) and the LeadCare System (LCS). Fifty-five pregnant women admitted for delivery from June to August 2002 at a hospital in Brazil were included in the study. Blood samples were taken from the women and from umbilical cords to determine serum lead concentrations. Only 3 women had blood lead concentrations > or = 0.48… CONTINUE READING
