Abstract: Objectives: To evaluate Brainstem Evoked Response Audiometry (BAER) as an objective testing of hearing assessment in normal neonates. Methods: In 30 healthy non-jaundiced term neonates BAER recording were made and values for various parameters drawn. Criteria for labeling abnormalities were thus formatted. Results: Mean age at the time of recording was 3.28+0.69 days and mean weight was 3.39+0.44 kg. Mean gestational age was 38.66+1.01 weeks and average serum bilirubin was 5.30+1.56 mg/dl. Conclusion: Our study has aimed to draw normal values for various components of ABER in term healthy neonates.
