CD 443 Test 2 Study Guide Screening Who can screen SLP s can screen 3 years adults AuD s can screen any age Procedures Newborn to 6 months ABR andor OAEs 7 months to 5 years behavioral testing Adults behavioral testing Puretone hearing screenings 7 months and older Kids usually started at 20 dB HL Adults usually started at 25 dB HL Frequencies 1000 2000 4000 Hz If they hear ALL they pass If they miss ANY they fail When to screen Infantswithin 3 months of birth or anytime parents are concerned Preschool when they start school Adults every 10 years until age 50 then every 3 after that Audiometry Audiometer Parts 1 Pure tone generator oscillator frequencies 2 Attenuator controls intensity of signal 3 lnterrupter switchduration of signal button that presents signal 4 Output transducer headphones Audiometry assessing hearing ability sensitivity ability to understand speech 0 Testing environment main consideration is minimizing background noise Three ways to reduce noise earphones insert earphones sound booths Measuring Thresholds 0 Clinical threshold de nition the lowest level at which patient correctly responds 50 of the time 0 Test better ear rst Puretone threshold

always stimulates both cochleas lnteraural attenuation the loss of sound energy in decibels that occurs when a sound crosses from the test ear to the nontest ear 0 Supraaural headphones 40 dB 0 Insert earphones up to 70 dB or more 0 Bone conduction none 0 dB Masking a change increase in the threshold of audibility for one sound caused by the presence of another sound When to mask when such an intense signal is presented and heard in the nontest ear masking is done so that the signal is only heard in the test ear Rules 0 Rule 1 Air conduction difference in thresholds is 40 dB or more 0 Rule 2 Bone conduction unmasked bone conduction threshold is greater than the air conduction threshold by 15 dB or more Overmasking the masking noise presented in the nontest ear is heard in the test ear

0 Conductive AC thresholds loss BC thresholds WNL within normal limits AC BC air bone gap 0 Sensorineural AC thresholds loss 0 BC thresholds loss 0 NO air bone gap 0 AC thresholds loss 0 BC thresholds loss 0 Air bone gap Difference between mixed and conductive is that conductive BC is in normal range and mixed is not Sensorineural BC has no air bone gap and is in similar spot on audiogram as AC 0

of the time 0 Typically used with young children or people with profound hearing losses Speech Reception Threshold 0 De nition the lowest level at which a clientpatient can barely understand speech at least 50 of the time 0 Materials Spondee 2 syllable words with equal stress on each syllable Suprathreshold Tests 0 Other names speech recognition speech discrimination word recognition Signaltonoise

Balanced Kindergarten Test PBK LNTMLNT SPIN HINT CID Everyday Sentences SIN Acoustic Re ex Both muscles stiffen the ossicular chain which changes the transmission of sound through the middle ear Primarily reduces low frequency transmission Contraction of the stapedius muscle in response to intense sound 0 Re ex is bilateral o Occurs in both ears in response to sound in either ear Stimulus ear where sound is being presented 0 Sound pass from the outer ear through middle ear to cochlea o Nerve impulses are carried along the auditory nerve to the cochlear nucleus and then to the superior
