Study Notes

Congenital Sensorineural Hearing Loss in the USA

Acquired Sensorineural Hearing Loss in Children

  • The most common cause of acquired sensorineural hearing loss in children is meningitis.
  • Sensorineural hearing loss can have a detrimental effect on speech and language development, leading to delayed or impaired speech and language skills.

Critical Period for Intervention

  • Intervention within this period is essential to prevent detrimental effects on speech and language development.

Causes of Acquired Sensorineural Hearing Loss

  • Meningitis is considered the commonest cause of acquired sensorineural hearing loss in children.
  • Head trauma can lead to acquired sensorineural hearing loss in children.
  • Ototoxicity, a detrimental effect of certain medications, can contribute to acquired sensorineural hearing loss in children.
  • Aminoglycosides and cisplatin are categories of drugs that can cause ototoxicity.

Congenital Hearing Loss in Neonates

  • The prevalence of congenital hearing loss in neonates with risk factors is 2-4%.
