ratings and reviews)
An audiometry exam tests your ability to hear sounds. Sounds vary, based on their loudness (intensity) and the speed of sound wave vibrations (tone). Hearing occurs when sound waves stimulate the nerves of the inner ear. The sound then travels along nerve pathways to the brain. Sound waves can travel to the inner ear through the ear canal, eardrum, and bones of the middle ear (air conduction). They can also pass through the bones around and behind the ear (bone conduction). Hearing test may be conducted as part of a routine screening or in response to a noticeable loss of hearing. An audiometry exam requires no special preparation. All you have to do is show up for your appointment on time and follow the ENT or audiologist's instructions. Audiometry Test Treatment includes preventive measures such as wearing earplugs around loud noises, or any corrective measures you may need, such as wearing a hearing aid. The results of some hearing tests are plotted on a graph called an audiogram. An audiogram is used to record the measurements of different volumes and frequencies (pitches) of sounds you are able to hear. There is no discomfort but the time required for treatment varies. An initial screening may take about 5 to 10 minutes. Detailed audiometry may take about 1 hour. This test can detect hearing loss at an early stage. It may also be used when you suffer from hearing problems due to any other cause. There are many kinds and degrees of hearing loss. In some types, you only lose the ability to hear high or low tones, or you lose only air or bone conduction. The inability to hear pure tones below 25 dB indicates some amount of hearing loss. The amount and type of hearing loss may give clues to the cause and chances of recovering your hearing.
