Objective. To determine the incidence of unilateral deficits on newborn hearing screening in babies
who have died of SIDS.
Methods. Records of universal newborn hearing screening outcomes for the state of Queensland,
from October 1, 2004 to December 31, 2006, were accessed. A list of all sudden, unexplained infant
deaths in the period January 1, 2005 to December 31, 2006 was acquired from the Queensland State
Coroner. For each child whose death was attributed to SIDS, individual hearing screening results were
reviewed. The screening process in Queensland utilises Automated Auditory Brainstem Response
(AABR) equipment.
Results. Between January 1, 2005 and December 31, 2006, 44 deaths in Queensland were attributed
to SIDS. Only 18 of the 44 babies who died with SIDS had had their hearing screened. All 18 passed
the hearing screen. Of the remaining 26 babies who died with SIDS who did not have their hearing
screened: 25 were born in places that did not practice routine screening at the time of their births; one
infant of the list from the coroner could not be located on the lists of births.
Conclusion. In Queensland there is no association with failing a hearing screening test and dying
with SIDS.
