35 True/False questions

  1. PI-PB: PB Maxworse score

          

  2. Reflexes: Jerger PatternsUse to determine where the problem is

          

  3. Tone Decay: Results - Retrocochlear-Amount of decay: 0 to 10 dB

    -Rate of tone decay: not significant

    -Frequency info: same across all frequencies

          

  4. PI-PB: PB Minbest score

          

  5. PI-PB: Roll-over FormulaPBmax - PBmin / PBmax

          

  6. Tone Decay: Suprathresholds1. Turn in up very loud, as loud as they can stand to tax the system

    2. The "uncomfortable" level or LDL (loudness discomfort level)

    3. Key issue → you have to mask the other ear!! Especially if one ear is normal

    4. Figure how much is crossing over and how much masking you need to put in the NTE

    5. More length and louder (doubling taxing the system) - need to make sure you say which you are using and why

          

  7. Central Auditory Tests: Premise-You do this type of test when the patient has bilaterally hearing and difficulty with speech in noise, pitch/patterns, etc.

    -Kids with Autism sometimes have problems with these type of thing (ex: overly sensitive to sounds)

          

  8. WRS: Presentation Method30 or 40 dB SL above PTA/SRT

          

  9. Central Auditory Tests: Pitch and/or Duration Patterns-You do this type of test when the patient has bilaterally hearing and difficulty with speech in noise, pitch/patterns, etc.

    -Kids with Autism sometimes have problems with these type of thing (ex: overly sensitive to sounds)

          

  10. Beskey: History1. Type I: could be SNHL, but most likely Normal or Conductive - laying on top of each other, no diff. b/w continuous and pulsed

    2. Type II: Cochlear loss (sensory) - gets a little worse as the tone keeps going

    3.Type III: Retrocochlear loss - gets worse

    4. Type IV: severe conductive or retrocochlear - kinda drops, but doesn't continue to drop, reflexes and audiogram can help determine type of loss

    5. Type V: Pseudohypacusis - make it up it there mind, and they pick continuous as louder

          

  11. Reflex Decay: Premisetaxing the system, put a tone in for a long period of time, maybe they will stop hearing it over time; if they stop hearing it they most likely have a retrocochlear loss

          

  12. WRS: InterpretationIf there is a big enough neural problem there will be a sig. difference b/w ears, and if you crank it up really loud it may get sig. worse

          

  13. Central Auditory Tests: Staggered Spondaic Words (SSW)1. Degraded signal are low in the brain stem

    2. It will put words in both ears and play words at the same exact time

    3. Measure of language dominance for kids - So they should do better in their right ear than their left ear until they are older and the ears even out

          

  14. Tone Decay: Results - Cochlear loss-Amount of decay: 0 to 10 dB

    -Rate of tone decay: not significant

    -Frequency info: same across all frequencies

          

  15. Reflexes: Sensitivity and SpecificityColor in Jerger pattern

          

  16. Reflex Decay: Method10 dB above; If it decrease by half in less than 10 secs we need to see how long it took

          

  17. Tone Decay: Threshold1. Turn in up very loud, as loud as they can stand to tax the system

    2. The "uncomfortable" level or LDL (loudness discomfort level)

    3. Key issue → you have to mask the other ear!! Especially if one ear is normal

    4. Figure how much is crossing over and how much masking you need to put in the NTE

    5. More length and louder (doubling taxing the system) - need to make sure you say which you are using and why

          

  18. PI-PB: Administration-Screen: to see if there was a difference and we just want to confirm

    -Full: 20, 30, 40, 40 SL until it's uncomfortable

          

  19. WRS: PremiseIf there is a big enough neural problem there will be a sig. difference b/w ears, and if you crank it up really loud it may get sig. worse

          

  20. PI-PB: How to Find PI-PB1. Start at the patient's ART of the test ear and add 10 dB HL.

    2. Obtain WRS at the new level.

    3. Continue the test by adding 10 dB each time.

          

  21. Tone Decay: Premisetaxing the system, put a tone in for a long period of time, maybe they will stop hearing it over time; if they stop hearing it they most likely have a retrocochlear loss

          

  22. WRS: Word ListsIf there is a big enough neural problem there will be a sig. difference b/w ears, and if you crank it up really loud it may get sig. worse

          

  23. Reflex Decay: Scoring-1, 2, 3 = Retrocochlear loss

    -7, 8, 9 = cochlear/sensory loss

    -4, 5, and 6 sec = soft signs for retrocochlear loss, we to do more retrocochlear tests (ex: tone decay)

          

  24. Beskey: PremiseIf there is a big enough neural problem there will be a sig. difference b/w ears, and if you crank it up really loud it may get sig. worse

          

  25. Tone Decay: Results - Normal ears-Amount of decay: 10 to 15 dB

    -Rate of tone decay: with each +5dB increase, tone audibility is longer and longer

    -Frequency info: same amount of decay at each tested freq.

          

  26. WRS: Presentation Level30 or 40 dB SL above PTA/SRT

          

  27. Tone Decay: Giving results-Be sure to specify: More length and louder (doubling taxing the system)

    -Need to make sure you say which test you are using and why

    2. Rosenberg

  30. Beskey: Results1. Press the button then release, then press and release again.

    2.It gets louder, louder, louder, quieter, louder, quieter, louder

          

  31. Central Auditory Test: Population-You do this type of test when the patient has bilaterally hearing and difficulty with speech in noise, pitch/patterns, etc.

    -Kids with Autism sometimes have problems with these type of thing (ex: overly sensitive to sounds)

          

  32. Reflexes: PremiseIf the pathway is damaged you will see absent or elevated reflexes

          

  33. Central Auditory Tests: Ear Symmetry-Without a good neural system you can't handle listening in noise

    -Looking for signals that are not completely clear

    -Noise at same time that you can't filter out

          

  34. Reflexes: Absent and ElevatedTaxing the system over a long period of time
