17 True/False questions

  1. Conductive Hearing LossA shift of the threshold of audibility due to mechanical impairment of any part or combination of parts of the ear.

          

  2. Evoked PotentialAn electrical potential recorded from the nervous system of a human or other animal following presentation of a stimulus.

          

  3. Sensorineural Hearing LossNoncorrectable hearing loss due to damage, malformation or degeneration of a portion of the neural system in the ear.

          

  4. EqualizationThe medical term for perception of sound in one or both ears or in the head when no external sound is present.

          

  5. External OtitisInflammation of the outer ear.

          

  6. Otitis MediaInflammation in the middle ear.

          

  7. Neural Hearing LossHearing loss from pathology to the auditory branch of the Cranial Nerve VIII.

          

  8. TinnitusTotal hearing loss.

          

  9. OtosclerosisA disease in which bony growths inhibit the mechanical operation of the parts of the middle ear.

          

  10. OtolaryngologyA disease in which bony growths inhibit the mechanical operation of the parts of the middle ear.

          

  11. Sensory Hearing LossHearing loss from pathology involving the sensory end organ in the cochlea. Most common sites include outer and inner hair cells within the Organ of Corti.

          

  12. Audiometric ExaminationTailoring the audible frequency spectrum to particular intensity levels. In this case, amplifying differntially those frequencies that audiological testing shows need boosting.

          

  13. AudiologistA disease in which bony growths inhibit the mechanical operation of the parts of the middle ear.

          

  14. DeafnessTotal hearing loss.

          

  15. PseudohypoacusisHearing loss that is feigned or exaggerated.

          

  16. Mixed hearing lossHearing loss that includes both conductive and sensorineural impairments.

          

  17. Temporary Threshold ShiftHearing loss from pathology involving the sensory end organ in the cochlea. Most common sites include outer and inner hair cells within the Organ of Corti.
