Multi Rehab Clinic and Hearing Aid Center
Audiometric testing is a common method for measuring an individual’s hearing ability and identifying any hearing loss. At Communikare, a multi rehab clinic and hearing aid center, audiometric testing is performed by trained professionals using specialized equipment. During the test, an individual will be seated in a soundproof booth and asked to wear headphones. A series of tones at different frequencies and volumes will be played through the headphones, and the individual will be asked to indicate when they hear a sound. The results of the test are recorded on an audiogram, which is a graph that shows the softest sounds an individual can hear at different frequencies. Audiometric testing can help identify the type, degree, and configuration of hearing loss, which can aid in the selection of appropriate hearing aids or other treatment options.
Communikare Multi Rehab Clinic and Hearing Aid Center should be your first call if you suspect hearing loss. It is never too late to undergo a hearing test, and it is always useful to assess your current hearing health. Monitoring and maintaining your hearing health will help you combat hearing loss and prevent its progression.
Your medical history provides a more complete picture of why hearing loss may have occurred. Do you work in an atmosphere that is loud? Are any of your activities characterized by high noise exposure? In the same manner, as your medical history, your lifestyle might help determine the origin of your hearing loss.
Most individuals see a pure tone audiogram when they think of a hearing test. The patient often raises their hand when they hear a sound. Through earphones, tones of varying frequencies or pitches are presented to each ear. Your threshold is the lowest level at which you begin to respond. Multiple threshold frequencies exist in each ear.
Bone Conductance Evaluation
The same sounds can also be played through the bone oscillator’s speakers. Using speakers allows us to examine children who will not wear headphones. The bone oscillator essentially bypasses the outer and middle ear and activates the nerve of hearing. This enables us to evaluate whether the hearing loss is caused by conductive outer or middle ear hearing loss or sensorineural nerve loss.
The use of a headset is required for pure-tone and bone conduction tests. Pure tone identifies the softest audible tones at various frequencies. The results of bone conduction are intended to determine the type of hearing loss present in each ear.
Evaluation of Auditory
Auditory Brainstem Response (ABR) examinations are non-invasive and patient-friendly. The purpose of this examination is to assess the functionality of the auditory nerve and a section of the brain stem. Sound transmission to the brain is the responsibility of both the auditory nerve and the brain stem. When screening a patient who reports a balance disorder, tinnitus, or asymmetrical hearing, ABR testing is utilized largely to rule out the presence of an auditory nerve injury.
