Students were also checked for acuity of vision (by Snellen's test and Jaeger's test); color perception (by Ishihara's chart); normal auditory function (by Rinne's test
and Weber's test).
Those participants who failed the whisper test were examined with Rinne's test
and Weber's test for hearing status, using a 512 Hz tuning fork.
Complete ENT examination along with Rinne's test
, Weber's test and Absolute bone conduction test were carried out to rule out ear pathology.
was positive in right ear with Weber's test lateralising to left, suggestive of sensorineural hearing loss in the right ear.
was positive in 90% of cases, negative in 3% and indiscernible in 7%.
was negative on the right and positive on the left.
With a 512-Hz tuning fork, Rinne's test
was positive bilaterally, and Weber's test revealed that the sound was louder on the left side, indicating a right-sided sensorineural hearing loss.
A Rinne's test
was positive bilaterally, and a Weber's s test lateralized to the left.
The patient's Weber's test was lateralized to the right, and the Rinne's test
was positive on both sides.
