Important tests for your baby
Your newborn will undergo a thorough examination by a pediatrician. Subsequent follow-up exams are of utmost importance, as many identified problems can still be treated successfully at this time.
Again, you can choose between the pediatrician of your choice or our care team from the University Children's Hospital of Vienna (Division of Neonatology, Pediatric Intensive Care and Neuropediatrics, Head: Angelika Berger, MD MBA Univ.-Prof., Deputy Head: Manfred Weninger, MD Univ.-Prof.).
Angelika Berger, MD MBA Univ.-Prof. performs routine hip and kidney ultrasound. A pediatric nurse from our team will conduct the highly important hearing tests.
TIP: Read up on the innovative exam for the early detection of hereditary diseases Baby-Check PLUS.
In this study, a set of small, soft earphones are placed on the baby's ears, which emit a gentle tone. The ear responds with an echo - "otoacoustic emissions" - which is registered by a very sensitive instrument.
If the test result is positive, a normal auditory development can be expected. The purpose of this examination is to detect deficiencies and to enable the earliest possible assistance.
