Abstract

Universal Newborn Hearing Screening (UNHS) is an important tool for detecting hearing impairment in newborns, but it is often hindered by unacceptably long test times. This paper will describe a preliminary data set obtained from 100 newborns using a new form of automated auditory brainstem response (AABR): a non-linear maximum length sequence (MLS) AABR with automated analysis. Initial analyses of this data suggest this new AABR test can reduce average screening times from minutes to a few seconds per newborn. The implications of this data and the possibilities for future research will be discussed.
