A complete hearing evaluation starts with a Video Otoscopy to inspect the ear canal and the ear drum, to verify that there is no wax or any other element that can interfere with the hearing test reliability.
Evaluation of the middle ear function is called Tympanometry. In this test, the Audiologist will identify if there is any dysfunction of the eustachian tube, fluid in the ear, eardrum perforation, or any other abnormality that may be the origin of the hearing loss.
Speech Recognition Test
The Speech Recognition Test is an evaluation where the patient will be asked to repeat words back to the hearing professional. This test is important to establish how the brain receives and processes the speech signal. In other words, it will tell the Audiologist or Hearing Professional, how clear the patient understands the words that are being said to them. This evaluation also tells the hearing professional how successful the patient will be using amplification though hearing aids, or if the patient needs a different option that will help them recognize words better.
