Newborn Hearing Screening uses electroacoustic and electrophysiological measures, such as transient evoked otoacoustic emissions (TOAE) and the Automatic Auditory Brainstem Response (ABR-A), since this population is unable to answer adequately to behavioral tests due to age [7].
The NBs that still failed would be referred to diagnostic centers for otorhinolaryngological evaluation, Automatic Auditory Brainstem Response and behavioral evaluation.
