Dr Farookh Aziz, Dr Rahul J Dawre

Abstract


Background: To study the incidence of hearing loss among neonates, determine and confirm the distribution of common risk factors in neonates with hearing loss.

METHODOLOGY: A prospective observational study which involved 60 neonates who underwent hearing screening in month of January 2018.

RESULTS: Hearing loss is the common disorder.

CONCLUSIONS: OAE screening of neonates at risk for significant hearing loss is a clinically efficient and cost effective approach for early detection of significant hearing loss.
