Change in the National NHSP protocol

     

There has been a recent change in the National Newborn Hearing Screening protocol.

Newborns diagnosed with cCMV will now be exempt from the NHSP screen ('screen contraindicated') and instead will be referred straight to audiology for diagnostic testing (auditory brainstem responses). 

Babies who fail the hearing test should be referred urgently for ABR but this will speed up the process and ensure all babies get the right treatment at the right time which is good news.
