Carefully screened normal-hearing young adults (5M, 25 F) performed a fixed- frequency version of high-frequency Bekesy audiometry (HFBA) with pure tones. The Bekesy Audiometer in its pulsed mode of operation customarily presents tones at a repetition rate of /sec with a duration of about msec and a rise- fall. Bekesy Audiometry in Analysis of Auditory Disorders. James Jerger. James Jerger. James Jerger (Ph.D., Northwestern University, ) is Associate Professor.

Apart from testing hearing, part of the function of audiometry is in assessing or evaluating hearing from the test results. It was not until that otolaryngologist Dr. Neither of the two devices was developed commercially for some time, although the second was to be manufactured under the name “Otaudion.

The first commercial system for detecting and measuring OAEs was produced in This article needs attention from an expert on the subject. Fowlerand physicists Dr. The bkesy system is composed of epithelial, osseous, vascular, neural and neocortical tissues. The result of most audiometry is an audiogram plotting some measured dimension of hearing, either graphically or tabularly. Before carrying out a hearing test, it is important to obtain information about the person’s past medical history, not only concerning the ears but bekeys other conditions which bfkesy have a bearing on possible hearing loss detected by an audiometric test.

Not to be confused with Audiography. The most common types of hearing loss, due to age and noise exposure, are usually bilateral and symmetrical. Hearing loss may be bekfsy or bilateraland bilateral hearing loss may not be symmetrical. This level can vary for an individual over a range of up to 5 decibels from day to day and from determination to determination, but it provides an additional and useful tool in monitoring the potential ill effects of exposure to noise.

Sound waves enter the outer ear and travel through the external auditory canal until they reach the tympanic membrane, causing the membrane and the attached chain of auditory ossicles to vibrate.

The motion of the stapes against the oval window sets up waves in the fluids of the cochlea, causing the basilar membrane to vibrate.

This stimulates the sensory cells of the organ of Corti, atop the basilar membrane, to send nerve impulses to the central auditory processing areas of the brain, the auditory cortexwhere sound is perceived and interpreted.

Results of audiometric tests are used to diagnose hearing loss or diseases of the earand often make use of an audiogram. The concept of a frequency versus sensitivity amplitude audiogram plot of human hearing sensitivity was conceived by German physicist Max Wien in Wax in the ear can also cause hearing loss, so the ear should be examined to see if syringing is needed; also to determine if the eardrum has suffered any damage which may reduce the ability of sound to be transmitted to the middle ear.

Subjective audiometry requires the cooperation of the subject, and relies upon subjective responses which may both qualitative and quantitative, and involve attention focusreaction time, etc. With the increasing importance of being able to differentiate between cochlear and retrocochlear lesions at a very early date, audiometric data assume an even more important role.
