Abstract:

INTRODUCTION: The hearing is a sense that enables the human to acquire and develop oral language. When there is a hearing loss, it should ideally be detected early to reduce the negative results of the lack of hearing stimulation. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this paper was to list the data of the anamnesis with the audiological findings of children. METHODOLOGY: This is a retrospective cross-sectional survey held in the audiology unit of a pediatric hospital. From January 2010 to December 2012, there were 1200 people. The study sample was composed of 262 patients who matched the inclusion criteria. RESULTS: In the anamnesis, the parents were questioned about what they thought of their child's hearing: 102 (38.9%) parents reported complaints about their child's hearing; 111 (42.4%) parents did not have complaints, and 49 (18.7%) parents reported doubts. Of the 102 children whose parents had complaints related to their child's hearing, 61.8% of their children had hearing loss in at least one ear, and this finding was statistically significant (p < 0.001). Of the parents who did not report complaints, 74.8% of the children presented normal hearing in both ears, and this correlation was statistically significant (p < 0.001). CONCLUSION: The partial data from this study show the relevance of the parents' report related to their children's hearing, confirming the specialized literature in relation to this aspect. Other data collected during this study will be analyzed for the correct analysis of the interconnection.
