The click-evoked otoacoustic emission (EOAE) recording procedure is a simple and quick test to perform. Some suggest that the EOAE is a more efficient newborn hearing screening procedure than the auditory brain stem response (ABR). However, one shortcoming of the EOAE is a high false-positive rate in newborns, which is attributed to ear-canal debris. The purposes of this study were to assess the initial pass/fail rates of ABR and EOAE measurements and the effectiveness of repeated EOAE… CONTINUE READING
