Abstract

Premature infants are susceptible to hearing impairment because they have immature organs and tissues and incomplete blood-brain barrier function and are sensitive to such factors as hyperbilirubinemia and infection. Early hearing screening and follow-up are necessary for premature infants to ensure timely interventions.
