During the annual conference of the Erebouni University I had the opportunity to have a lecture on
“Hearing Screening on the Path through Life”
This topic is of high interest in Armenia as there are joint efforts of the ENT department of the Erebouni University (Prof. Arthur Shukuryan) together with the Ministry of Health to introduce neonatal hearing screening and hearing screening at pre-school age in the country in the very near future. New hand-held devices, designed for facilitating the assessment of hearing impairment in infants and children were presented.
The second update I would like to share with you today is connected with the publication of another article, namely, the one on neonatal hearing screening. This has been the subject matter of widespread scientific debates and discussions among specialists and non-specialists alike. NHS is of direct relevance to all countries that aim to introduce a feasible and cost-effective system for monitoring the health of newborn babies.
