19 Multiple choice questions

  1. the outer and middle ear
  2. intensity is represented in dB HL
  3. the sensitivity of the sensorineural portion of the auditory system
  4. the decibel scale shown on the audiometer dial or screen; allows for comparison of the client's thresholds to average normal thresholds
  5. high background noise level in the testing environment
  6. a behavioral response
  7. respond to sounds with a head turn during visual reinforcement audiometry
  8. conductive hearing loss
  9. 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
  10. oral mechanism exam
  11. move on to the next frequency after one missed response
  12. the average of the pure tone thresholds at 500, 1000, and 2000 Hz in each ear
  13. 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
  14. mixed
  15. that there is a dysfunction at some level of the auditory system
  16. both air and bone conduction thresholds are outside of normal limits, with similar values
  17. may not understand even amplified speech
  18. electronic calibration is required on a yearly basis, or sooner if audiometer malfunction is suspected
  19. shows hearing sensitivity that is 45 dB worse than the average normal threshold for that sound
