This is a portable hand held device which makes it easier for staff to check the hearing of newborns and can used both in hospital and following home births.

Funding of £4,000 came from BAE Systems staff who have contributed to the Give as You Earn Scheme.

The Audiology team are very grateful for this OAE machine.  This equipment gives an objective assessment of the cochlea which helps assist in the diagnosis of hearing loss in babies, young children and adults with learning difficulties.
