Abstract

Auditory Brainstem Responses (ABRs) are one of the techniques of choice for hearing screening in newborns. Universal ABR testing, however, has not become widespread due to the cost involved. The objective of this study was to develop an efficient on-line ABR screening system. A signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) estimation formula was used to detect threshold responses and thus avoid unnecessary sweep acquisition. A windowed cross correlation between consecutive recordings was used to validate the presence of a response. The system required fewer sweeps at higher intensities to determine the presence of a response than standard ABR. Testing with the automated system was accurate and time efficient.
