Congenital Deafness with Cardiac Arrhythmias: The Jervell and Lange-Nielsen Syndrome.
Wahl, Richard A.; Macdonald, Dick, II
American Annals of the Deaf, v125 n1 p34-37 Feb 1980
The Jervell and Lange-Nielsen syndrome, affecting 0.3 percent of congenitally deaf persons, consists of severe cardiac arrhythmias and sensorineural hearing loss. The authors recommend that every congenitally deaf child with suspicious symptoms receive an electrocardiogram and that professionals who work with deaf children not only inform themselves about the syndrome but also receive training in cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
