Simple and Evidence-Based ABR Protocol for Infant Hearing Assessment

Course: #33939Level: Intermediate1 Hour 294 Reviews
Recorded Webinar

This presentation offers practical evidence-based information on auditory brainstem response (ABR) that can be applied clinically in the accurate diagnosis of infant auditory dysfunction. The presentation reviews test parameters and protocols for efficient single channel air- and bone-conduction ABR measurement plus the role of auditory steady state response (ASSR). Strategies and technical advances are described for performing a complete frequency-specific ABR assessment in 30 minutes or less, and combining ABR with other objective auditory procedures (otoacoustic emissions and aural immittance measurement), for successful infant hearing assessment in natural sleep.
