What BC Thresholds are Recommended for Optimal Results with Bone Anchored Hearing Systems? November 19, 2012 Ravi Sockalingam, PhD, FAAA With single sided deafness, the guidelines indicate bone conduction thresholds in the good ear to be within 20 dB average between 500 and 3000 Hz. There has been advice saying that closer to 0-10 dB is optimal. As we approach 20 dB, how much of a risk are we taking toward less than optimal result? For example, with thresholds of 15, 15, 15, and 35dB respectively at those frequencies. How should we advise the patient?
