U.S. child hearing loss more prevalent in Hispanics

Most U.S. children with congeniotal hearing loss are Hispanics or from low-income families, according to an American scientific review of data related to newborns, children and adolescents.

The review found that one in four children with congenital hearing loss was diagnosed at the age of three years or older, too late for the best possible early treatment.

Based on their review the authors pointed to the need for a unified system for the collection of regional and national health data in the United States. The data collection should be standardized, including a national neonatal hearing loss screening registry.
