The maximum permissible ambient noise and frequency-specific averaging time on the measurement of distortion product otoacoustic emissions.
There are two methods by which new born hearing screening is done -- otoacoustic emissions (OAE) and automated auditory brain stem responses (BR).
Hearing screening is performed by one of two electronic tests, otoacoustic emissions test (OAE) or auditory brainstem response (ABR).
Following the concert, the majority of the study participants also were found to have a significant reduction in the Distortion Product Otoacoustic Emissions (OAE) test.
Cochlear function was assessed by pre-and post-noise (after 168 hours) recordings of distortion product otoacoustic emissions (DPOAEs) and auditory brainstem responses (ABR).
Conventional audiometry and transient evoked otoacoustic emissions were recorded before the application of the procedure and thirty minutes afterwards.
Otoacoustic emissions are an excellent objective measure of cochlear health and are generally present when hearing thresholds are under 30 dB hearing level at each corresponding frequency measured.
Shadowed the Audiologist in conducting Otoacoustic Emissions (OAEs) tests
Sensitivity of transient evoked and distortion product otoacoustic emissions to the direct effects of noise on the human cochlea.
Chapters cover aural immittance measures, otoacoustic emission, electrocochleography, auditory brainstem response, and auditory steady-state response, and give recommendations for objective identification and diagnosis of hearing loss.
(2007) found that using pure tone audiometry testing as a single measure is not as sensitive as using otoacoustic emissions testing, which identified hearing losses in 71% of the children, whereas pure tone audiometry only indicated hearing losses in 52% of the children.
