Sarah Thompson, daughter of Senior Airman Josh Thompson, 1st Special Operations Wing, has an ear bud placed in her ear prior to her newborn hearing screening. The screening measures otoacoustic emissions, which are sounds produced by the outer hair cells within the inner ear. It is common practice for babies born on base and a state-mandated procedure in Florida. (U.S. Air Force photo/Samuel King Jr.)
