Newborn Hearing Tests Unreliable
(KUTV) There is new evidence that newborn hearing tests can be unreliable. Researchers in Pittsburgh studied over 900 children with hearing problems78 of them had passed hearing tests as infants.
Doctors say some children received passing grades incorrectly when they were infants. Others develop hearing difficulties as they get older.
Experts advise parents who think their child has hearing trouble to get more than one test.
