Background and Objectives : Hearing impairment is a common congenital disability of

the newborn, which has an incidence of 1.5 to 3 per 1,000 infects each year. The

identification of this problem is difficult and many of these children are not identified

until 2-3 years of age if not screened at birth. The purpose of this study is to establish

a common screening method adjusted to our country and to emphasize the importance

clearly diagnosis of neonatal hearing loss.

Materials and Methods : TEOAE were performed in 1,459 infants from March to

December, 1998 at Ajou university hospital. The tests were performed daily until

discharge if the infant had failed the first test, and were followed at the outpatient

clinic. Hearing loss was confirmed by ABR.

Results : The average test time of TEOAE was 102.6 seconds. Test time after 24

hours of birth was shorter than before 24 hours, and was shorter in female compared to

male infects. Pass rate after 24 hours was higher than before 24 hours and 86% of

tested infects passed during admission. Thirty-one out of 213 infants foiled to follow-up

at the outpatient clinic. Two were diagnosed with unilateral hearing loss on ABR.

Conclusion : TEOAE is a simple and useful screening method for the identification of

hearing loss in infects.
