  2. The dB HL scale
  3. NOT a component of the basic audiological evaluation
  4. What is the purpose of the case history interview?
  5. What is true of an audiogram?
  6. Damage to the middle ear, with an otherwise normal auditory system, would cause what type of hearing loss
  7. What is PTA? (pure tone average)
  8. In pure tone threshold testing, the starting intensity level should
  9. Air conduction thresholds outside of normal limits indicate what?
  10. When both air and bone conduction thresholds show hearing loss and thresholds for bone conduction are significantly better than for air conduction, what is the type of hearing loss?
  11. What is true of audiometer calibration?
  12. What does bone conduction testing measure?
  13. On an audiogram, a sensorineural hearing loss is present when
  14. The conductive portion of the auditory system includes
  15. When establishing pure tone hearing thresholds for a new patient, the examiner SHOULD NOT do what?
  16. A client with a threshold of 45 dB HL at 1000 Hz in the right ear
  17. A person with a profound hearing loss
  18. Children at ages 5 months to 2 years
  19. Puretone threshold testing requires
  1. a a behavioral response
  2. b the decibel scale shown on the audiometer dial or screen; allows for comparison of the client's thresholds to average normal thresholds
  3. c both air and bone conduction thresholds are outside of normal limits, with similar values
  4. d respond to sounds with a head turn during visual reinforcement audiometry
  5. e may not understand even amplified speech
  6. f to establish positive interaction between the clinician and client, obtain information that might indicate potential causes of a hearing loss, indicate whether there is a need to modify test procedures, help determine the day-to-day effects of hearing impairment on the client
  7. g that there is a dysfunction at some level of the auditory system
  8. h high background noise level in the testing environment
  9. i be clearly audible, result in a client response that is clearly recognized by the examiner, should be increased o 50 dB HL if there is no response at 30 dB HL
  10. j move on to the next frequency after one missed response
  11. k conductive hearing loss
  12. l intensity is represented in dB HL
  13. m shows hearing sensitivity that is 45 dB worse than the average normal threshold for that sound
  14. n oral mechanism exam
  15. o electronic calibration is required on a yearly basis, or sooner if audiometer malfunction is suspected
  16. p the average of the pure tone thresholds at 500, 1000, and 2000 Hz in each ear
  17. q the outer and middle ear
  18. r mixed
  19. s the sensitivity of the sensorineural portion of the auditory system
