PURPOSE: To comment on a recently published article titled "Initial Audiologic Assessment of Infants Referred From Well Baby, Special Care, and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit Nurseries" by R. K. Karzon and J. E. C. Lieu (2006). METHOD: Comments are directed specifically at the sequence of testing described in the article. CONCLUSIONS: This letter challenges the efficiency of beginning infant audiologic evaluations with the auditory brainstem response evoked by high-intensity, unmasked click stimuli. Reasons as well as alternatives favored by the author and other researchers are presented and summarized.
