Diagnostic Audiometry

Audio­met­ric test­ing is indi­vid­u­al­ized and may be con­duct­ed in var­i­ous ways depend­ing on the age and abil­i­ty of the patient. Typ­i­cal­ly, air con­duc­tion audiom­e­try is com­plet­ed in addi­tion to bone con­duc­tion audiom­e­try in order to deter­mine the type and sever­i­ty of the hear­ing loss. Test results will allow the audi­ol­o­gist to diag­nose con­duc­tive, mixed or sen­sorineur­al hear­ing loss.
