Evidence-Based Clinical Applications of OAEs in Children and Adults

View Course Details Please note: exam questions are subject to change.

1.  Which of the following is NOT an advantage of OAEs:
  1. Objective
  2. Quick
  3. Sensitive to outer hair cell dysfunction
  4. Requires behavioral participation
2.  OAEs are recommended in which of the following clinical guidelines:
  1. 2007 Joint Committee on Infant Hearing (JCIH)
  2. Physician's Desk Reference
  3. Katz Handbook of Audiology (5th edition)
  4. American Academy of Audiology Scope of Practice
3.  OAE recordings are influenced by status of the:
  1. Middle ear
  2. Inner hair cells
  3. Auditory brainstem
  4. Temporal lobe of the cerebral cortex
4.  OAEs are useful in the identification of ANSD because they:
  1. Detect middle ear dysfunction
  2. Detect inner hair cell dysfunction
  3. Are a pre-neural test, unlike many other tests used in audiology
  4. Require behavioral participation
5.  One of the first clinical applications of OAEs in the 1980s was:
  1. Confirmation of otosclerosis
  2. Newborn hearing screening
  3. Diagnosis of Meniere's disease
  4. Hearing aid fitting
6.  OAEs are useful in monitoring for ototoxicity because:
  1. they are a subjective auditory test procedure
  2. they provide information on inner hair cell function
  3. ototoxic drugs often produce outer hair cell dysfunction
  4. they require behavioral participation
7.  OAE findings are useful in early identification of suspected:
  1. False hearing loss
  2. Otitis media
  3. Otosclerosis
  4. Stroke
8.  Which statement most accurately describes OAE findings and the audiogram:
  1. OAE findings are always normal in patients
  2. OAE findings may be abnormal in patients with normal audiograms
  3. OAE findings are always abnormal in patients with abnormal audiograms
  4. All of the above accurately describe OAE findings and the audiogram
9.  In patients at risk for noise-induced hearing loss, OAE findings:
  1. Play no role if an audiogram is available
  2. Rule out neural abnormality
  3. Rule out middle ear pathology
  4. Sometimes provide early evidence of cochlear auditory dysfunction
10.  OAEs may provide early detection of _______, which can be helpful with tinnitus patients.
  1. high blood pressure
  2. psychotic behavior
  3. neuroses
  4. noise exposure
