This is commonly known as a hearing test. We test your ear’s response to pure tone sounds as well as checking to see how your ear processes sounds.
Auditory Brainstem Response
This test is frequently referred to as an ABR. It is a specialized hearing test that can check for problems with the hearing organ itself or for problems in getting the hearing signal on up to the brain.
Otoacoustic Emmission (OAE) test
This specialized hearing test takes about 10-15 minutes and gives information about the hearing organ itself.
This test is also called an ENG and is used on patients who are having problems with dizziness, balance or disequilibrium.
Tests Pure tone screening tests are completed on all ages – these may be completed for school purposes, job requirements, or industrial needs.
Hearing Aid Terms:
The audiologists dispense hearing aids from a variety of manufactures. A few of the manufactures which we use include: Phonak, Oticon, and Resound.
There are a variety of hearing aid style options from Completely-in-the-canal to mini-behind-the-ear styles. The particular style appropriate for each individual will be dependent on many factors, including: needs, the ear size, dexterity, hearing loss.
Hearing aid accessories may include remotes and batteries. Batteries are needed in all hearing aids and remotes are compatible with some aids.
All new hearing aids are fit on a trial period or an adjustment period. This is a 30 day time period where patients are scheduled to be fit with new devices, then follow up appointments are scheduled as needed during the 30 days.
