Abstract

In summary, we found that the prevalence of CNS/ANS signs was significantly higher in the infants exposed to cocaine and/or opiates than in nonexposed infants. However, the prevalence of a large number of these signs was less than 5%. The prevalence rates of these signs are lower when exposure involved cocaine only; thus, their assessment has limited clinical utility.
