Hearing Evaluation

A Comprehensive Diagnostic Hearing evaluation is made up of a series of tests to help the Audiologist assess the health of your auditory system. The evaluation will allow the Audiologist to determine if a hearing loss is present, the degree and type of hearing loss, and the condition of the ear canal and middle ear system. Based on the findings the Audiologist can determine the most appropriate treatment options.
The hearing evaluation will include:

A discussion of your medical and hearing history
Otoscopic examination (examination of the outer ear, ear canal and ear drum)
Pure-tone air and bone conduction testing (measuring the quietest tones a person can detect at different pitches)
Speech testing (measuring the quietest speech levels a person can hear and how clearly they hear at comfortable listening levels)
If above tests indicate any problems related to middle ear, then the Audiologist would perform a — -Tympanometry testing (evaluation of the function of the ear drum and middle ear system)
Hearing Evaluation
Following the hearing evaluation, the Audiologist will review the test results with you and discuss the best course of action for treatment-referral to an Ear Nose and Throat specialist if required.
