Abstract

Advances in audiologic technology make it possible to identify hearing loss in the neonatal nursery. With this opportunity, audiologists are able to test infants before hospital discharge. Neonatal hearing screening programs are becoming the standard of care in both well baby and intensive care nurseries. Some programs screen for hearing loss, whereas others carry out diagnostic threshold ABR testing. The most effective protocol seems to depend on individual program parameters and characteristics. Technological advances have provided audiologists with the ability to identify hearing loss reliably before 12 months of age. Governmental and professional position statements emphasize the importance of this endeavor. With concentrated effort, audiologists must accept this challenge and develop large-scale screening programs to identify hearing loss in neonates and infants.
