  1. 1. By: Imtiaz ur Rehman 4th Year MBBS Khyber Medical College Peshawar
  2. 2.  DEFINITION Audiometry is a procedure which is performed to measure hearing acuity and also to detect hearing disabilities.
  3. 3.  It is more precise than tuning fork tests.  It is quantitative.  It determines hearing acuity.  Performed with an audiometer.
  4. 4. Hearing acuity means the lowest level of intensity at which a person can hear a particular tone or frequency.
  5. 5. Headphones are applied to a subject’s ears and at a specific frequency, sound of different intensities are checked.
  6. 6.  Subject  Comfortable chair  Red and blue markers  Audiometer  Audiogram
  7. 7. Device used to perform audiometry.
  8. 8.  Graphical representation of those frequencies and intensities which are audible to subject.
  9. 9. 1. Ask the subject to sit comfortably on a chair. 2. Explain the full procedure to subject. 3. Place the headphones on the subject’s ears. (Red  Right , blue  Left) 4. Ask the subject to raise his left or right hand whenever he/she listens to sound. 5. Fix the frequency and increase loudness.
  10. 10. 6. When subject raise his/her hand,note that loudness. 7. Now decrease the loudness by 5db and then increase by 5db for confirmation. 8. Bring the loudness knob back to 0db mark. 9. Change the frequency and again increase the loudness.
  11. 11. 10. Check response of subject at different frequency 11. Repeat the procedure for both ears.
  12. 12.  Patient must be well aware of the procedure.  Room should be Sound proof and quiet.  Glasses, ear rings and any other metallic objects (if present) should be removed.  Hearing aids (if present) should be removed.  The subject should not face the front panel of the audiometer.
  13. 13.  Head phone must be applied properly (red to right and blue to left).  Leads must be properly attached (red to right and blue to left).
  14. 14.  18-25 years age.  No deafness before this age.  No wax in ear.  No exposure to noise
  15. 15.  It is the defect in the conduction of sound waves in the inner ear.  It is mainly caused by the wax or any damage to ear drum.
  16. 16.  It is a defect in which there is damage to cochlear hair cells or auditory pathway.  It is mainly caused by damage to VIII nerve or auditory pathways.
  17. 17. Mild Deafness Moderate Deafness
  18. 18.  In this condition the hearing loss is almost same in both ears.
  19. 19.  In this condition the hearing loss is different in both the ears.
  20. 20.  This is the condition of hearing loss due to increasing age due to damage to the base of cochlea.
  21. 21.  In this condition the loud noise cause damage to cochlea.
  22. 22.  Also called as middle ear sclerosis.  It is a heredity disorder.  There is fibrosis in middle ear cavity.  In some cases there is a bony outgrowth from stapes so the foot-plate become stiffed.  There is no conduction of sound from tympanic membrane to inner ear.
