Neonatal hearing screening

For the development of the child is a healthy hearing very important . Between the fourth and seventh day, the nurse or caretaker come to your home to take the screening. This is done with the OAE machine that  measures the Otto Acoustic Emissions. These are very subtle sounds that the ear produces. They can be measured by closing the ear with a cap in which a speaker and a microphone mounted.
