Age and sex differences in latencies of waves I, III and V in auditory brainstem response of normal hearing subjects.
Of 134 patients, 14 (19 ears) had evoked V wave upon auditory brainstem response, whereas no waves after I wave were evoked in other tested ears.
We conducted an analysis to assess the relative contribution of auditory brainstem response (ABR) testing and auditory steady-state response (ASSR) testing in providing appropriate hearing aid fitting in hearing-impaired children with difficult or unreliable behavioral audiometry.
She said one MRI scan on Carwyn's brain was cancelled by the hospital, followed by at least two auditory brainstem response (ABR) hearing tests.
The screening test consisted of measurement of the short latency auditory brainstem response (ABR) to click stimuli, and was considered to be normal when wave V (the fifth and most prominent and consistent wave) was identified in two consecutive averaged waveforms at 35 decibels normal hearing level (dB nHL).
The auditory brainstem response (ABR) is a neurological test used to evaluate the auditory brainstem function in response to clicks as an auditory stimulus.
The Joint Committee on Infant Hearing (JCIH) [3] and the Multi-professional Committee on Auditory Health [1] both suggest that the implementation of the Neonatal Hearing Screening use electroacoustic and electrophysiological measures, such as the Otoacoustic Emissions Evoked by Transient Stimulus (OAET) and the Auditory Brainstem Response (ABR).
Automated Auditory Brainstem Response Screeners and Consumables.
Measurement of the Auditory Brainstem Response (ABR) is considered the most sensitive method of assessing the auditory activity of neonates.
Owing to the neurological challenges influencing the ability of children with neurological disorders to be tested behaviourally, objective testing such as the auditory brainstem response (ABR) measure is recommended.
The electrical auditory brainstem response (EABR) waves were tested to ensure the optimal implant site.
