Hearing impairment

SJD Barcelona Children's Hospital has a Newborn  and Infant Hearing Evaluation Unit where we perform hearing function tests, which allow us to make a precise diagnosis and indicate the most appropriate treatment in each case.

Hearing function tests: 

  • Behavioural and reflex observation audiometry
  • Play audiometry
  • Tonal and verbal audiometry
  • Otoacoustic emissions
  • Impedancemetry: tympanometry and stapedial reflexes
  • Auditory evoked potentials of: brainstem and steady-state
  • Electrocochleography

We also diagnose and treat vertigo in children.
