Neonatal auditory brainstem response failure of very low birth weight infants: 8-year outcome



Neonatal auditory brainstem response failure of very low birth weight infants: 8-year outcome



Pediatric Research 31(1): 68-72



Fifty-six very low birth weight infants (less than 1.5 kg) were followed until 8 y of age to see if predischarge auditory brainstem response (ABR) results were predictive of neurobehavioral development. The results suggest that early ABR may predict subsequent performance on measures of intelligence quotient, language, and reading. Unilateral ABR abnormalities did not appear predictive, but bilateral abnormalities did. Analysis of a variety of neonatal risk factors in conjunction with early ABR and hearing loss with respect to educational outcome was also undertaken.
