Here is more on the baby hearing tests - Patricia Burns was a member
of the group years ago - her baby daughter received a CI (and, in  the
last post I recall was, as a teenager, pestering her Mum for a cell
phone). As I said elsewhere, the test she describes is now routine for
all babies in Australia and many other countries.

Nowadays, for newborn screening, they use the Otoacoustic emissions
(OAE)
test.
I had an OAE done for myself a few years ago and it accurately
reflected
my audiogram (20dB across, but spiking to 25dB at 2000 Hz)...an exact
on
match.
