The audiological assessments should incorporate a detailed case history, otoscopic examination, immittance audiometry, speech audiometry, DPOAEs, and conventional and extended high frequency audiometry (i.e., up to 20 000 Hz) (HFA) [69, 73].
[18] However, immittance audiometry, otoacoustic emissions, a comprehensive case history, behavioural observation, and functional hearing measures should all be conducted or at least attempted to supplement the ABR results.
