    Retrocochlear
  1. a patterns suggest problem in the ear with the absent/elevated ipsilateral reflex
  2. b > 95 dB SL

    -Conductive loss

    -Retrocochlear loss

    -Suggests a neural loss, specifically a problem with the VIII CN or beyond
  3. c 1. Disorder of the intra-axial brain stem pathways
  4. d -No response at the limits of the immittance bridge

    -Conductive loss

    -Sensorineural loss

    -Suggests loss is sensory, neural, or both
  5. e 1. Present stimulus at 1000 Hz at 10 dB SL above the contralateral threshold.

    2. Measure the number of seconds it takes for the reflex to decrease in amplitude by half.

    3. Record results on immittance form.
  6. f We have to perform at peak pressure from the tympanogram
  7. g -Determines how well the acoustic pathways (ipsilateral and contralateral) are functioning.

    -Measures how well the muscles in the middle ear (stapedius and tensor tympani) respond to loud sounds

    -Helps determine the site of lesion (conductive, cochlear, or retrocochlear)
  8. h 1. Place the probe tip in the test ear.

    2. Test 1000, 2000, and 4000 Hz

    3. Present stimulus at 80 dB HL and go up in 5 dB HL steps (100 dB HL = max limits of immittance bridge) until you see a deflection of 0.02 ml or greater.

    4. If there is a deflection of 0.02 or great the reflex is PRESENT

    5. If there is not a deflection of at least 0.02 ml the reflex is ABSENT
  9. i 1. Extra-axial and/or intra-axial brain stem disorder
  10. j -Right Contralateral: stimulus in right ear; probe in left ear (Left Crossed)

    -Left Contralateral: stimulus in left ear; probe in right ear (Right Crossed)

    -Right Ipsilateral: stimulus and probe in right ear (Right Uncrossed)

    -Left Ipsilateral: stimulus and probe in left ear (Left Uncrossed)
  11. k 1. 8th nerve disorder

    2. Severe cochlear loss
  12. l ≥ 10 secs
  13. m ≤ 3 secs
  14. n -Stimulus and probe on opposite sides

    -Test: 500, 1000, and 2000 Hz
  15. o -Look for the lowest level we get a .02 ml shift

    -We want a flat line, then .02 ml shift

    -We need to get a twice

    -Start at 80 dB, go up to 90 dB if there was no reflex (similar to the Hughson-Westlake method)

    -We need the line to go down and back up
  16. p -You can tax the system just like WRS, but instead of making it louder we make it LONGER

    -Figure out where their threshold was, then go in 10 dB above threshold at > .02 ml
  17. q 4-6 secs
  18. r ≤ 60 dB SL

    -Cochlear

    -Suggests a sensory loss, specifically a problem related to the cochlea

    -Normal hearing

    -Mild Conductive loss

  21. u 1. Place the probe tip in the test ear.

    2. Test 1000, 2000, and 4000 Hz

    3. Present stimulus at 80 dB HL (100 dB HL = max limits of immittance bridge)

    4. Use method similar to Hughson-Westlake
    -If reflex is present, decrease by 10 dB HL

    5. Once you determine the threshold record results on the immittance form.
  22. v 7-9 secs

    -Measures how the muscles in the middle ear respond to a constant and loud stimulus.
  24. x -Typically pure-tones, but can be noise

    -If the sound is loud enough, the sound bouncing back will tell us the room is smaller.

    -We are looking for 0.02 ml

    2. Test 500, 1000, and 2000 Hz
