Your Hearing Evaluation and Consultation Pt 1

Your hearing evaluation and consultation will be performed in ANSI certified sound rooms and will take 30 to 45 minutes if preceding tests are satisfactory. 

Video Otoscopy

Video Otoscopy examines the ear canal and eardrum using a television monitor.

Tympanometry

Tympanometry is when air pressure is changed in the ear canal to check mobility of the eardrum and rule out abnormalities of the middle ear.  

Acoustic Reflex Threshold Testing

Acoustic Reflex Threshold Test checks the integrity of the auditory nerve and a branch of the facial nerve by presenting a high intensity stimulus and measuring contraction of the stapedius muscle.   

Your Hearing Evaluation and Consultation Pt 2

Your hearing evaluation and consultation will be performed in ANSI certified sound rooms and will take 30 to 45 minutes if preceding tests are satisfactory.   

Pure Tone Testing

Pure Tone Testing requires the patient to indicate when they hear a tone.   The lowest decibel level at which the patient responds 50% of the time is called threshold which is measured at a number of frequencies using air conduction and bone conduction.  

Air Conduction Testing

Air Conduction Testing presents a pure tone signal to measure the transmission from the outer through middle and inner ear utilizing insert earphones. 

Bone Conduction Testing

Bone Conduction Testing utilizes a bone oscillator placed on the mastoid by the ear which vibrates the skull and stimulates the inner ear, bypassing the outer and middle ear.   These measurements are compared to indicate the type, severity and degree of impairment.   

Speech Audiometry

Speech Audiometry is important to determine the speech threshold, most comfortable and loudness discomfort listening levels and word recognition.   These tests provide the data to determine the ability to function with the properly fit amplification.
