False positive hearing screenings in caesarean newborns

Some researchers are
recommending that newborns delivered by caesarean section should not be given
the otherwise routine hearing screening in the first few days after delivery.
This will reduce the number of failed hearing tests.

The problem arises if hearing screening tests are done within a baby’s first
two days of life, researchers say. At that point, newborns delivered by
C-section have a higher failure rate than babies born by vaginal delivery.
