The Kruskal-Wallis test was applied to analyze the difference between median auditory thresholds
and the SRPI for each face.
In our study, auditory threshold
was found to be higher in patients to their compliance with treatment than in those who were not compliant.
Several ototoxic treatments lead to the loss of hair cells, thus increasing auditory thresholds
. Application of neomycin to the tympanic cavity induces the death of most hair cells and provides an excellent model of induced hearing loss (12).
2 corresponds to distance of auditory threshold
. Mean distance of the 15 points surrounding the animal is 18.62 [+ or -] 2.43 m and is not significantly different from mean distance of seven measurements made from three other animals (19.95 [+ or -] 2.33 m; t = 1.228, P = 0.233) used to verify the method.
A key issue in the management of hearing loss in children who are identified at birth with severe-to-profound SNHL is the determination of appropriate target gain levels for amplification, which is based on auditory thresholds
. Prior to the availability of ASSR audiometry, the setting of target gains in the "no response by ABR" child was problematic at best, and gain targets were only educated guesses.
The means and standard deviations of the auditory thresholds
of the tested ears for all groups are shown in Figure 1.
Carbon monoxide exposure potentiates high-frequency auditory threshold
shifts induced by noise.
(47) In view of these reports and the fact that many clinicians were finding that steroids had some beneficial effects, the lead author's (M.D.S.) laboratory initiated an animal study to investigate the effects of transtympanic steroids on cochlear blood flow, auditory threshold
sensitivity, and histology.
The Table 1 presents the socio-demographic data of the subjects evaluated, the auditory threshold
and the presence or absence of tinnitus in at least one ear or head in the studied groups.
After 6 months of treatment the auditory threshold
improved at higher frequencies (4000,6000,8000 Hz) in both fasting and postprandial blood sugar levels (P<0.05 significant by ANOVA method)

shift," JARO Journal of the Association for Research in Otolaryngology, vol.
Normal-hearing individuals typically hear with both ears and have auditory thresholds
that are similar between the two ears.
