Hearing Evaluation

You will be offered a wide variety of comprehensive diagnostic audiological evaluations for all ages, with computerized modern equipment adhering to international standards and protocols.

The diagnostic hearing evaluations include the following:

Pure Tone Audiometry for adults

Pure Tone Audiometry is a behavioral test which is conducted to measure an individual’s hearing sensitivity and to find out if there are any deviations from the norm. Provided the person is having a hearing loss, this test gives an overall view regarding the

  • Degree of hearing loss
  • Type of hearing loss

Behavioral Testing for children include

  1. Behavioral Observation Audiometry (BOA)

    This test is done on infants from birth to 6 months. Audiologists analyze the auditory behaviors of the infants by providing auditory stimulus given through loudspeakers in a soundproof environment. The test gives an idea of whether the child’s auditory responses are age appropriate or not.

  2. Visual Reinforcement Audiometry (VRA)

    This test is carried out on children between 6 months to 3years of age, where the child has gained proper head control because the responses are recorded as a head turn toward the sound source. A special device is then used to visually reinforce the child.

  3. Conditioned Play Audiometry (CPA)

    CPA is done on children from 2years to 6years and is performed as a play activity.

Speech Audiometry

This test measures the hearing sensitivity with respect to speech signals, and aids to determine the nature of hearing loss along with the pure tone audiometry findings. In general, it measures the individual’s Doesn’t make sense to put online here It was included to increase the keyword density on the page.

ability in speech understanding, discrimination and discomfort levels. The test findings are useful in the subsequent hearing aid fitting and also to determine various hearing disorder.

 

Electrophysiological Testing

Electrophysiological tests basically assess the inner ear and beyond, till the level of the cortex. These tests eliminate the need for the active participation of the patient tested, hence it serves as a useful tool in assessing the pediatric population.

  1. Otoacoustic Emission Testing (OAE)

    It is performed to identify the functioning of the cells which determine the audibility of auditory signals. It provides preliminary information regarding a person’s hearing sensitivity, therefore utilized to screen hearing in newborn babies.

  2. Auditory Brainstem Response (ABR/BSER)

    This test can show the responsiveness of the auditory nerve and the auditory pathway to the brain to different sound signals. This uses surface electrodes to pick up the responses given by the nerves according to the sound stimuli given through the ears. This test can be done for all ages, especially for pediatrics. However, the patient has to stay calm during the test as the movements/sounds directly affect the test result.

  3. Auditory Steady State Responses (ASSR)

    This test has almost the same procedure used while conducting Auditory Brainstem Responses (ABR) testing. However, it takes less amount of time to conduct ASSR, as the testing can be done for both ears simultaneously.

Tympanometry and Reflexomtery

Hearing losses could occur due to pathologies and dysfunctioning of the middle ear such as wax impaction, eustachian tube dysfunction, tympanic membrane perforation, etc.

  • Tympanometry can be used to identify the nature of the middle ear and tympanic membrane. It sends a sound signal and makes pressure difference inside the ear canal hence, identifies the functioning. This test can be used for all ages and the person who is involved with the testing don’t need to respond.
  • Reflexometry used to identify the acoustic reflexes of a specific muscle (stapedius muscle) located in the middle ear, for sound signals. It can provide basic information regarding the functioning of the middle ear and brainstem.

Tinnitus Evaluation and Management

Tinnitus is a condition that you would hear a sound inside your ears, without any external sound source. This condition occurs due to many pathological reasons. It may lead to reduced quality of life, as the tinnitus sound may disturb the day-to-day life. Tinnitus impacts each individual in a unique way. So, the testing procedure is done to get an idea about the individuals’ condition and determine an appropriate management plan.
