The first part of the hearing test is generally a case history.
where you will be asked about your medical history and any medications you are currently taking. You will also be asked to provide information about your hearing health, including any previous hearing loss or damage. This information helps to determine if there is a potential medical cause for your hearing loss.
Next, a physical examination of your ears will be conducted.
This helps to rule out any blockages or other physical causes of hearing loss. The third part of the hearing test is an assessment of your auditory nerve function. This tests how well your auditory nerve is functioning and can help to determine if there is nerve damage. The fourth part of the hearing test is an assessment of your speech understanding. This tests how well you are able to understand spoken language.
Finally, the fifth part of the hearing exam is reviewing your audiogram.
The audiogram charts the softest sounds you are able to hear at different frequencies and can help to determine which frequencies you are having difficulty hearing. These tests together help us to determine what hearing aids or treatments are best suited to your specific needs.
