Abstract

The Rhode Island Hearing Assessment Project was developed to determine the feasibility of establishing a valid cost-effective method of screening newborn hearing through a universal early identification programme. In a sample of 1850 infants, sensorineural hearing loss was identified in 11 infants using transient evoked otoacoustic emissions (TEOAEs). A second sample of 1451 infants showed similar trends in hearing loss identification. TEOAE was shown to have significant potential as a newborn screening tool when used in a carefully designed hospital-based early identification programme.
