Hearing screening.- It is a simple and quick test that, without causing any pain or discomfort to the newborn, detects the presence of hearing loss or deafness in newborns. Since April 1, 2010, at Saint Anton, it is performed with the best equipment for the diagnosis of hearing in newborns, these are Brain Stem Auditory Evoked Potentials (ABEP). The BAEP include a comfortable, reliable and accurate study, which is carried out between 10 to 20 minutes.

We use the best equipment from the Áudi-k brand for the early diagnosis of hearing loss or deafness in newborns. It is a fast and reliable study carried out by our Nursing staff, performing tests at 35 dB in both ears to determine the state of your baby’s hearing; Since by knowing the state of the baby’s hearing in time, if it is normal or has a certain degree of deafness, measures can be taken that allow an adequate development of your son or daughter.

In Houston texas every year 4,000 children are born with deafness, but with an early diagnosis you will allow your baby to grow up and have a normal life, within their family and social environment. That is why the realization of the Neonatal Hearing Screen it’s of vital importance.
