TEHDI - Approved Screening Equipment

TEHDI logoThe technologies listed below have been evaluated by an independent investigator and the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) and have been found to meet requirements for conducting newborn hearing screening. Each device:

  1. Has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA);
  2. Is capable of identifying hearing loss as defined in §37.502(5) of the state regulations; and
  3. Can electronically link to the DSHS information system (OZ Systems, eSP).

The list will be updated as additional equipment is brought forward for evaluation. The appropriate device (or devices) for a given birthing facility depends on the specific needs of that organization. Therefore, DSHS and the independent investigator do not endorse a particular device.
