Hearing Evaluations

The audiologist at Mercy St. Charles Hospital conducts hearing tests on newborns, chidren and adults.

Hearing screenings are completed on newborns that may be at risk for hearing loss. To screen a newborn's hearing, electrodes are placed on the baby's scalp while he or she sleeps. The electrodes collect information on brainwave activity.

Children, as young as eight months old, can be tested for hearing loss using an audiometer and a sound booth. For toddlers and preschoolers, play is incorporated into the test. The audiologist will record the child's response to various sounds.

Testing for adults takes approximately 20 minutes to complete. The audiologist will discuss the results of the test and recommend types of hearing instruments, if necessary.

Mercy St. Charles Hospital carries a full line of advanced, high quality hearing instruments, including digital instruments.
