Hearing Loss in Premature Infants

Although premature babies are prone to anemia, infections, and breathing problems, one of the most common birth defects in preemies is congenital hearing loss. Possibly caused by a defect in the development of the inner ear structure or shape of the ear. It may also be the result of an infection passed from the mother to the fetus. Herpes, measles, rubella, syphilis, toxoplasmosis, and a common virus that causes sore throats and swollen glands called “cytomegalovirus” have all been linked to hearing loss in premature infants. Preemies are also vulnerable to infections that can develop after birth and result in hearing loss such as meningitis, measles, and ear infections that can damage the eardrum or the auditory nerve.

Whatever a patient’s age, once a hearing test has discovered that a hearing impairment exists, the next step is finding the perfect match between the patient and his or her individual impairment and the appropriate solution. At this point, the hearing aid specialist will take into consideration all of the many factors that can affect the successful treatment of hearing loss. Let us do what we do best—call on ABSOLUTE HEARING SOLUTIONS, for comprehensive testing, experienced evaluations, custom fittings, quality hearing products, and follow-up care. 

P.S. Congenital hearing loss in premature infants has increased from 1 in 1,000 births to 32 per 1,000 births.
