Early Screening For Hearing Impairments In Newborn Can Be Helpful

Research said that screening newborns for permanent childhood hearing impairment (PCHI) might help in raising the chances of early detection of the condition by about 43%. The study findings were presented in this week’s // The Lancet.

PCHI is a congenital defect that affects 112 per 100,000 children worldwide. The benefit of newborn screening has been disputed for this condition but preliminary evidence suggests that enrolling children with PCHI in an intervention program by the age of 9 months can reduce deficits in their development of language and speech.

Colin Kennedy (Southampton General Hospital, UK) and colleagues did an 8-year follow-up study of babies enrolled in the Wessex trial of universal newborn screening (UNS) for PCHI. In the latest study the researchers reviewed a group of 66 children aged between 7–9 years with bilateral PCHI that had undergone physiological screens of hearing soon after birth, and compared them with a group who only had distraction tests at age 7–8 months. The investigators found that the proportion of children with PCHI referred before 6 months of age increased from 11 of 35 (31%) without screening to 23 of 31(74%) during periods of screening.

Dr Kennedy concludes: ”Our report . . . is the strongest available evidence of the added benefit of UNS in the early detection of PCHI. Assessment of the effect of early intervention on the speech and language of the children and the costs incurred by their families and by health providers is in progress and will be the subject of future reports.”
