Pure tone audiometry was carried out and pathological audiograms with sensorineural hearing loss were segregated.
Whether receiving a hearing aid or a cochlear implant, the child's ability to detect sound supersedes even the best audiogram. The audiogram only paints a picture of the child's responses to artificial sounds.
Developed program presently covers possibility of adding measured data, immediate calculation of Fowler coefficient, displaying and save audiogram, submission patient into risky group and transmission into any common patient's card index.
The workers with 20 years of service (age between 37-43 years) show a hearing capacity of a 60-year-old person with no history of exposure to noise (presbycusis curves) (7), especially in the region of 3000-8000 Hz frequency of audiogram.
Chandler|2~ presented audiograms revealing the average loss in the speech frequencies with a 95% occlusion was 25 dB HL, and with 100% occlusion 51 dB HL.
The audiogram of sensory nerve deafness tends to slope downward at the higher frequencies, as many deaf people can hear lower sounds best.
An odds ratio with 95% CI > 1 indicates a positive correlation between the dependent variable (i.e., prevalence of high-frequency notches in audiogram) and explanatory variable (e.g., age), while a value < 1 indicates a negative correlation between the dependent variable and explanatory variable.
Table 2 summarizes clinical characteristics of 14 patients from seven ARNSHL families with TMPRSS3 mutations including onset age, audiogram configuration, progression of hearing loss, and vestibular symptoms.
Initial symptoms, duration from initial symptoms to the diagnosis, hearing thresholds, audiogram patterns, and caloric test results were collected and analyzed for each patient.
The pure tone audiogram plotted showed that median pure tone threshold for all the patients taken together at first visit was 20 decibel Hearing Level (HL) at 500 hertz speech frequency which increased to 65 decibel HL at 8000 hertz.
These goals were accomplished with audiometric data from 1,000,001 veterans who were entered through the Quality: Audiology and Speech Analysis and Reporting (QUASAR) Audiogram Module at VA facilities across the nation and archived at the Denver Acquisition and Logistics Center (DALC), which is the component of the VA through which hearing aids and associated devices are procured and dispensed to veterans.
