Shimizu H. n.d.. Identification of Hearing Loss in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at The Johns Hopkins Hospital [Final report]. Baltimore, MD: Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, 27 pp.

Annotation: The goal of this project was to develop and recommend an appropriate hearing screening model to be used in Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICUs) in the state or nation. The project was designed to compare three of the most commonly used screening procedures to determine the incidence of hearing loss, to identify the most predictive procedure or cluster of procedures for screening hearing loss in the NICU, to study the relationship between hearing screening procedures and the outcome of independent audiometric and developmental measures, and to identify the most cost effective mass hearing screening procedures.
