Screening and Assessment of Hearing Loss in Infants

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Screening newborns for hearing loss has become the standard of care in many regions of the world. Electroacoustic (evoked otoacoustic emissions) and electrophysiological (auditory brainstem response) methods are used for screening. These methods are also used in assessment of hearing loss, as well as behavioral methods such as visual reinforcement audiometry and other electrophysiological techniques such as electrocochleography, auditory steady-state responses, and cortical auditory evoked potential. This chapter describes the physiological bases of and the methods used for screening and assessment of infant hearing.
