How Common Is Hearing Loss?

- Childhood hearing loss is often identified during newborn hearing screenings that are performed 24-48 hours after birth. However, some children who pass these screenings show signs of loss as they grow older. 1.1 billion people between the ages of 12-35 are at risk of hearing loss due to exposure to noise in recreational settings with 12.5% having permanent damage.
To know what caused the hearing loss and which part of Ear organ got defect, Infants and Children need objective test including OAE/ABR/ASSR.
After getting the exact test result, they have to get suitable hearing aids or if hearing aids are not effective, they have to get cochlear implants.
