Since 1993, research and publications[5-9] have supported universal screening; now the cost of identifying an infant with hearing loss is less than the cost of identifying an infant with phenylketonuria. Also, studies by Appuzzo and Yoshinaga-Itano and Yoshinaga-Itano and colleagues showed early identification and intervention improves language and social development, and today 37 states have more than 1 hospital providing universal hearing screening programs. A variety of screening devices are used, including automated auditory brainstem responses (AABR), transient evoked otoacoustic emission
, and distortion product otoacoustic emissions (DPOAE).
All examinations were carried out by the same otolaryngologist, after which tympanogram, pure-tone audiometry (PTA), and transient evoked otoacoustic emission
(TEOAE) tests were conducted.
