COVID-19 and Newborn Hearing Testing

The current COVID-19 crisis has caused quarantines and service disruptions around the world. However, delays in diagnostic hearing testing for newborns can affect a lifetime of hearing ability. Regarding audiological development, the first months of a newborn’s life are critical. The sooner hearing changes are identified in a newborn, the more likely interventions can help […]

2019 JCIH Guidelines – Assessing Children Who Cannot be Evaluated Using Behavioral Testing

Approximately 40% of young children who are deaf or hard of hearing have coexisting conditions that, in some cases, may render audiologic evaluation challenging (e.g., physical, intellectual, psychological, or emotional needs or barriers).1 Some children may never become candidates for conventional/behavioral testing methods for the purpose of determining and validating frequency-specific hearing thresholds. Periodic monitoring […]

2019 JCIH Guidelines – Newborn Hearing Screening

Universal newborn hearing screening (UNHS) allows for early diagnosis and prompt intervention for infants who were born deaf or hard of hearing. The ability to ensure timely retesting for all infants who do not pass their newborn hearing screening test is critically important. Outpatient rescreening should be conducted as soon as possible after hospital discharge […]

UAE Study Shows Importance of Universal Hearing Screening

Although the incidence of sensorineural hearing loss among infants in the neonatal intensive unit (NICU) is higher than in normal infants, this study from the UAE illustrates the importance of implementing universal hearing screening programmes in both healthy neonates and high-risk newborns admitted to the NICU. Limiting the screening to the high-risk group would fail […]
