17 True/False questions

  1. Loudness Growth: Tonal and/or Speech-UCL: speech

    -LDL: tone

    -60 dB or below, dynamic range is small between quiet and loudest sound.

          

  2. Alternative Binaural Loudness Balance Test (ABLB): InterpretationUse if they have one normal ear and one bad ear, to look for recruitment

          

  3. Loudness Growth: PerformanceLook for the length of the dynamic range

          

  4. Reflexes: RecruitmentThat it will take a while before they can hear it, but they will hear it b/c they will have recruitment

          

  5. OAEs: Distortion Products- Put 2 sounds in and you measure if a third sound comes out

    -Typically screen with DP, to look at specific frequencies

          

  6. Loudness Growth: Premise-Tell me when you barely hear it, clearly hear it, it's loud, it's almost uncomfortable, it's painfully loud

    -May not do all the middle ones, unless we are doing a hearing aid

          

  7. OAEs: PremiseThat it will take a while before they can hear it, but they will hear it b/c they will have recruitment

          

  8. Short Increment Sensitivity Index (SISI): PremiseDetermines if the patients is able to notice a 1 dB increment change (JND)

          

  9. OAEs: TransientPut click that stimulate the cochlea at the whole time and measures what comes out

          

  10. Short Increment Sensitivity Index (SISI): InterpretationDetermines if the patients is able to notice a 1 dB increment change (JND)

          

  11. OAEs: Interpretation-If they sound goes in and the OAEs come back out = IHCs are damaged

    -If the sound goes in and NO OAEs come back = OHCs are damaged - Suggesting Cochlear/Sensory loss and they have recruitment

          

  12. Short Increment Sensitivity Index (SISI): Methods1. Plays and ongoing sound at a specific loudness, start at about 10 dB above

    2. Increases by 1 dB 20 times, if they raise their hand saying they heard the difference they heard the difference

          

  13. Alternative Binaural Loudness Balance Test (ABLB): Premise1. Compare to ear that has a hearing loss

    2. Complete recruitment = when the bad ears hears the same as the good ear - It has to get smaller and smaller units to match the loudness perception

          

  14. Reflexes: PremiseThat it will take a while before they can hear it, but they will hear it b/c they will have recruitment

          

  15. Reflexes: Sensation Levels-Do we have that smaller dynamic range

    -They may have a reduced dynamic range b/w where they can finally hear and where it becomes painfully loud

          

  16. Alternative Binaural Loudness Balance Test (ABLB): MethodsUse if they have one normal ear and one bad ear, to look for recruitment

          

  17. Loudness Growth: InterpretationLook for the length of the dynamic range
