Abstract

In the system of hearing screening only high-risk infants, hearing screening is limited to the intensive care nursery. In this system, the high-risk neonatologist is the medical specialist with the responsibility for follow-up examination and diagnosis of young infants with hearing impairment. We are entering an era with the goal of screening all newborn babies for hearing impairment. Instead of examining and testing toddlers aged 1 to 2 years who are newly identified with hearing loss, physicians can expect to diagnose, and sometimes treat, very young infants. This article presents recommendations for the medical examination, diagnosis, and treatment of hearing loss in the growing number of young infants identified with hearing loss.
