 [aw″de-om´ĕ-ter]
an apparatus used in audiometry for testing the hearing.

au·di·om·e·ter

(aw'dē-om'ĕ-ter),
An electronic device used to measure hearing thresholds for pure tones, modulated tones, speech, and other acoustic stimuli.
[audio- + G. metron, measure]

au·di·om·e·ter

(aw'dē-om'ĕ-tĕr)
An electrical instrument for measuring the threshold of hearing for pure tones of frequencies generally varying from 128-8000 Hz (recorded in decibels).
[L. audio, to hear + G. metron, measure]

audiometer

An instrument for measuring the lowest levels at which pure tones can be heard at each of a range of frequencies, either by air or by bone conduction. The results are recorded as an AUDIOGRAM.

In this article, we describe our quality assessment of the value of EXT in treating patients with sudden and severe unilateral hearing loss, primarily by analyzing audiometrically quantified outcomes.
This may result in an abnormal, audiometrically induced bone-conduction threshold shift and suggest to the otologist the need for auditory brainstem response testing and/or magnetic resonance imaging.
Between 3 and 14 months postoperatively, the patency of the ear canal was assessed visually and hearing was evaluated audiometrically. Adequate patency was achieved in 5 of the 6 ears (83.3%), and the air-bone gap in these 5 ears had improved to 10 dB or less.
