As universal newborn hearing screenings (UNHS) identify infants with possible hearing loss, diagnostic evaluation is required to determine if hearing loss is present and quantify and qualify the loss. A conductive loss resulting in the absence of recordable otoacoustic emissions will require medical management. The audiologist responsible for the management of permanent hearing loss will consider amplification options while medical evaluation and management is pursued. The patient and family will also begin evaluations and seek assistance through their area’s early intervention program. The audiologist will present results, recommendations, and plans to the parents/caregivers. Because multiple individuals will be providing care and family support, communication between all professionals is important.
