NEWBORN HEARING SCREENING

Newborn Hearing Screening aims to detect hearing loss in newborns and other babies early in order to facilitate intervention and treatment as quickly as possible. One to two babies in 1000 have significant hearing impairment at birth and are at risk for speech, language, intellectual, social and emotional development. Without a screening test, this impairment may not be detected until much later. Early detection, followed by appropriate intervention, will minimize the harmful effects on the child’s development. The screening test should preferably be done within the first six months of the baby’s birth.

Newborn Screening is performed by trained staff under supervision of a paediatrician, who is backed by ENT surgeons. The test takes only a few minutes and will not hurt the baby in any way. The test uses Otoacoustic Emission (OAE), where a small soft-tipped earpiece is placed in the outer part of the baby’s ear which sends clicking sounds down the ear. When an ear receives the sound, the inner part (known as the cochlear), usually produces an echo. The screening equipment can pick-up the response.

Newborn Hearing Screening is offered to all babies born at Evercare Hospital Chattogram. It is also available for other babies at  Paediatrics OPD, Saturday – Thursday.
