Excellence in Hearing Healthcare
The hearing test was created as a medical model to differentiate between various disorders of the ear. It aids us in determining the type of treatment which would be most beneficial to the patient.
There are two parts to the hearing test, Speech testing and Pure-Tone testing. The speech portion gives us information about how loud speech has to be before the patient can hear it and how well the person can understand once speech is made loud enough. Pure-Tones tell us how sensitive the ear is to various frequencies.
All of this is recorded on an audiogram.
