Abstract

The most recent advances in technology and scientific knowledge have allowed better outcomes in permanent childhood hearing impairment (PCHI) than in the past period. The Universal Newborn Hearing Screening with OtoAcoustic Emissions provides an early identification/habilitation program for hearing impaired children, giving them immediate access to intervention when needed. The aim of this paper was to treat the organization and management of health care procedures for PCHI in Italy, which are not well coordinated with respect to other European Countries. Pediatrician and neonatologists appear to be especially engaged in these aspects.
