Probe tones from 220 Hz to 2 000 Hz were used to measure the static and dynamic acoustic impedance of 44 neonates. Acoustic reflex thresholds to broad band noise were obtained from every neonate tested when employing the higher frequency probe tones. The reflex threshold levels measured are similar to those of adults. The static impedance values are(More)
A variable-frequency probe-tone acoustic-impedance bridge has been developed to enable an artifact-free pure-tone acoustic reflex study to be carried out on neonates. Contralateral reflex thresholds for pure tones, broadband noise, and filtered noise were measured in 28 newborns aged 4-8 days. The mean reflex threshold for the broadband noise was 73 dB SPL,(More)
Acoustic reflex impedance measurements are made on forty-seven normal and two otosclerotic ears using fixed probe frequencies from 220 to 2000 Hz. In general, the reflex increases the middle ear impedance up to 700 Hz probe frequency and decreases it thereafter. It is postulated that this characteristic is related to removal of the cochlear fluid resistance(More)
