  1. Narrowing of the external auditory canal is calledatresia

          

  2. A Type C tympanogram indicatesa hypermobile middle ear system

          

  3. If a client has impacted cerumen on one side, which of the following audiological results would you expect?conductive loss and type B tympanometry with abnormally small ear canal volume on the affected side

          

  4. A Jerger type Ad tympanogram indicates-peak admittance lower than 0.3 ml
    -normal peak pressure
    -a stiffened middle-ear system

          

  5. A hearing loss resulting from a foreign object in the ear canal would fall into which of the following categories?the air pressure where the highest amount of sound is admitted into the middle ear

          

  6. Which of the following disorders is most likely to cause hearing loss?impacted cerumen

          

  7. Congenital absence of the external auditory canal is calledstenosis

          

  8. Absence of the pinna is known asanotia

          

  9. All auditory disorders present at birth are referred to asassociated with non genetic etiologies

          

  10. Which of the following increases the risk for cerumen impaction?impacted cerumen

          

  11. The Jerger type As tympanogram indicatesa hypermobile middle ear system

          

  12. Chronic external otitis is treated byanotia

          

  13. The purpose of the otoscopic exam during an audiological evaluation is-to determine whether there is an ear canal obstruction that prevents the use of insert earphones
    -to evaluate the outer ear and tympanic membrane for the appearance of obvious abnormalities

          

  14. Exogenous auditory disorders areassociated with non genetic etiologies

          

  15. Microtia and anotia are more commonlyin the right ear and in males

          

  16. According to your text in Chapter 5, the best way to manage collapsed ear canals isthe use of insert earphones during audiological testing

          

  17. Acquired outer ear disorders would include which of the following?congenital

          

  18. Disorders that disrupt outer and/or middle ear functions related to hearing, without affecting inner ear or CANS function, are associated withconductive hearing loss

          

  19. A tympanogram with normal peak pressure and a peak admittance value of 0.2 ml indicatesthe air pressure where the highest amount of sound is admitted into the middle ear

          

  20. What type of tympanogram would be expected for an ear with sensorineural hearing loss?Type A

          

  21. The peak pressure value from a tympanogram is associated withthe air pressure where the highest amount of sound is admitted into the middle ear

          

  22. Whats true about tympanometry procedures-The probe tip must completely seal the ear canal opening to conduct tympanometry.
    -Conventional tympanometry has limited value when testing infants who are less than 7 months old.
    -Tympanometry should not be conducted if liquid blood or drainage is present in the ear canal.
    -The patient shouldnt be talking

          

  23. Conventional tympanometry uses a probe tone of what frequency?226 Hz
