Hearing Screening

A pass/fail measure to determine whether hearing is within normal limits or may be impaired, meant only to be used to determine if further evaluation may be necessary, not sufficient for programming hearing devices.

Hearing Evaluations

A comprehensive measure of hearing levels for speech and tones at various frequencies, may lead to further testing depending on diagnosis, provides individual hearing levels necessary for programming hearing devices.

Hearing Aids

FDA registered medical devices designed to assist those with hearing impairment to better utilize residual hearing for improved communication.

Hearing Aid Fittings

Initial individualized programming of hearing aids and counseling provided for patient on proper use and maintenance of hearing aids.

Hearing Aid Dispensing

The behind the scenes tasks associated with the order and subsequent sale of hearing aids. Includes verification received devices are what was ordered, that they are working properly, and that no package components are missing.

Hearing Aid Evaluations

Assimilation of test results, history, and other information to assist in selection of hearing aids by providing recommendations. Patients then choose their hearing aids based on recommendations, past experience, goals, lifestyle, budget, and insurance benefit.

Hearing Aid Cleanings

Deeper cleaning of hearing aids than can be achieved by patient at home, typically recommended every 6 months, may utilize mechanic picks, brushes, suction, and/or cleaners designed to be safe for hearing aids.

Hearing Aid Checks

Visual and auditory inspection of hearing aids to ensure proper function, typically paired with hearing aid cleanings and recommended every 6 months.

Hearing Aid Reprogramming

Adjusting/fine tuning the programming of hearing aids due to patient preferences, changes in hearing, changes in ear shape, etc.

Real Ear/Electroacoustic Measures

Recording of the hearing aids real time performance at the level of the patient’s ear drum utilizing a tiny probe, sometimes achieved utilizing averages and estimates to perform measures in a test box, instead of the patient’s ear.

Tympanometry

Measure of tympanic membrane (ear drum) mobility, typically used to assist in ruling out and/or diagnosing disorders of the middle ear space.

Assistive Listening Devices

Devices that are not hearing aids but are designed to assist those who are deaf or hard of hearing with daily functions such as alerting and alarm devices, captioned telephones, amplified telephones, etc.

Hearing Protection

Stock or custom molded ear plugs or ear muffs designed to attenuate (dampen) sounds to protect one’s hearing from damage due to loud noise exposure. May also include protection from water, sparks, metal, glass, wood, etc.

Pure Tone Audiometry

Determination of patient’s ability to perceive various frequencies (pitches), establishes thresholds (softest level at which patient can hear), may also establish loudness discomfort levels (point at which patient can no longer tolerate).

Speech Audiometry

Determination of patient’s ability to perceive speech, establishes threshold (softest level at which patient can hear), may also establish most comfortable listening level, uncomfortable listening level, and patient’s ability to understand speech clearly in quiet and/or noise.

Otoacoustic Emissions

Evaluation of the function of the inner ear by presenting and sound to the ear, recording sound returned by the inner ear, and comparison of differences between.
