Comprehensive Diagnostic Audiological Evaluations
Speech and Pure Tone Audiometry
Speech and pure tone audiometry are the initial procedures of an audiological evaluation; results determine other procedures required for a complete diagnostic evaluation.
Acoustic Immittance Measures
Tympanometry is used to determine the condition or integrity and mobility of the middle ear—the tympanum (eardrum) and ossicles (the tiniest bones in the human body)—by creating variations of air pressure in the external ear canal.
Otoacoustic Emission Testing
Otoacoustic emission (OAE) testing measures cochlear outer hair cell integrity and is used for difficult-to-test patients such as newborn infants, young children and developmentally-delayed individuals.
Tinnitus Evaluation and Management
Tinnitus is described as head noises such as ringing, crickets, humming or buzzing in the ear and can range in severity. A tinnitus evaluation can help identify how much tinnitus interferes with your daily life and if there are treatment options that can benefit you.
Industrial Hearing Testing
Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) standards require a hearing conservation program if a company's employees are exposed to an average of 85 decibels or more of noise during an 8-hour workday. Baseline and annual audiometric testing is provided to determine an employee's standard threshold shift (STS). Results and recommendations are submitted to employers within the week.
