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

1.  Choose the statement that describes Earlens placement and fitting process accurately:
  1. The Earlens device can be programmed at any stage of the fitting process.
  2. A trained physician places the lens on eardrum followed by fitting of the device by an audiologist.
  3. Lens placement is not necessary for programming of the Earlens device.
  4. Only one hearing professional is involved in placement and fitting of the Earlens devices.
2.  Which of these statements is NOT true about calibration?
  1. Calibration is needed to determine the minimum signal level required to produce perception of sound
  2. Calibration can help to check the current status of the Earlens device
  3. Calibration can be used in-lieu of an audiogram
  4. Calibration should be performed at every visit
3.  In the Earlens Fidelity™ Fitting Software, gains are prescribed using:
  1. Hearing thresholds at a given frequency
  2. Calibration at a given frequency
  3. Loudness discomfort levels at a given frequency
  4. Both hearing thresholds and calibration at a given frequency
4.  Choose the statement that lists the correct order of steps for programming the Earlens device:
  1. Audiogram entry, feedback measurement, fine-tuning
  2. Feedback measurement, fine-tuning, calibration
  3. Audiogram entry, fine-tuning, feedback measurement, calibration
  4. Audiogram entry, calibration, feedback measurement, fine-tuning
5.  The rationale for the Earlens fitting formula is:
  1. To maximize audibility
  2. Loudness equalization and normalization
  3. Comfort for loud sounds
  4. Loudness equalization only
