The Joint Committee on Infant Hearing (JCIH) [3] and the Multi-professional Committee on Auditory Health [1] both suggest that the implementation of the Neonatal Hearing Screening use electroacoustic and electrophysiological measures, such as the Otoacoustic Emissions Evoked by Transient Stimulus (OAET) and the Auditory Brainstem Response (ABR).
