To develop and evaluate a simple screening tool to assess hearing loss in newborns. A derived score was compared with the standard clinical practice tool.


This cohort study was designed to screen the hearing of newborns using transiently evoked otoacoustic emission and auditory brain stem response, and to determine the risk factors associated with hearing loss of newborns in 3 tertiary...

Yun Sil Chang
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2011;54(12):481-488.   Published online December 31, 2011

In the current era of low-birth rate in Korea, it is important to improve our neonatal intensive care and to establish an integrative system including a regional care network adequate for both high-risk pregnancies and high-risk newborn infants. Therefore, official discussion for nation-wide augmentation, proper leveling, networking, and regionalization of neonatal and perinatal care is urgently needed. In this report,...

Woo Taek Kim, Myung Chul Hyun, Sang Bum Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1996;39(7):977-986.   Published online July 15, 1996
Purpose : We performed this study to compare serial measurements which relate to both ventricular functions in full term neonates for the first three weeks after birth. Methods : Echocardiographic and pulsed Doppler studies were performed for 20 newborns during the first 36 hours of life, and subsequent serial studies in the second (n=13) and third(n=12) weeks of life. Evaluation included measurements of both...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 1994;37(8):1078-1091.   Published online August 15, 1994
Lipoprotein(a) [Lp(a)] is considered an additional, independent and largely genetically determined risk factor for the development of premature coronary heart disease. Furthermore abnormal plasma lipoprotein patterns have been associated with increased risk for developing coronary heart disease. Among these lipoproteins, an increased concentration of serum Apo B and decreased level of Apo A are considered as major risk factors, together...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 1990;33(7):977-988.   Published online July 31, 1990
With the improvement in survival rate in high risk infants in the neonatal intensive care unit, there is rising concern about the neurologic sequelae in these infants. In order to evaluate the neur- ologic examination in normal neonates, 400 normal newborns were evaluated for a duration of 6 months from Mach 1989 to August 1989. Neonates greater than 37 weeks gestational age, birth weight...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 1984;27(2):122-127.   Published online February 28, 1984
Five hundred fifty consecutively born full-term neonates, delivered at Eul Ji General Hospital, were examined for the presence of Mongolian spots (MS). The spots were found in 81.9% of male children, and in 85% of female children. The sacrogluteal region was the most frequent site of pigmentation, with the coccyx next in frequency. The color was most frequently blue-green, but was...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 1983;26(2):130-136.   Published online February 28, 1983
The authors observed 56 cases of congenital syphilis in newborns who had been treated at Eul Ji General Hospital during the period of Jan. 1977 through Dec. 1981. 1) The incidence of congenital syphilis in the cases delivered at Evi Ji hospital was 0.5%, while the incidence in the cases transferred from other clinic was 1.7%. 2) About two-thirds(66.1%) of congenital syphilitic newborns were low birth...
