EARLY IDENTIFICATION OF DEAFNESS IN INFANTS

Key words: Deafness, Neonatal screening, Hearing surveillance, BOEL test

Although a screening approach is widely accepted as the method of choice for early detection of hearing loss in infants, in spite of recurring proposals of new methods, the “ideal” procedure has not yet been found. Thus, only limited success has been obtained with screening programs. The Author suggests thet better results can be obtained with alternative strategies, based on surveillance methods. Longitudinal hearing surveillance based on the central role of pediatricians and parents can be pursued by using simple, not invasive methods, like the BOEL test and questionnaires.
