The MADSEN AccuScreen ABR Newborn Hearing Screening Device by Otometrics is a portable, lightweight, handheld, battery-operated newborn hearing screening device that uses electrodes for testing. It offers a touch screen display with vibrant icons and intuitive navigation for ease of use to make testing easy, efficient, and ideal for screening babies.
Screening ABRs measure hearing by placing three electrodes on the head and neck to detect the nervous system’s response to sound stimulus. It provides comprehensive screening of the auditory system as it screens from the ear canal to the brainstem. ABR offers two ways to deliver sound stimulus; via a probe placed in the ear. Though more accurate then OAE testing, the test takes longer and must be performed on a resting, still baby.
