The aim of the study was to analyse whether the presence of spontaneous otoacoustic emissions (SOAEs) in a group of normal-hearing adults is related to larger transient evoked otoacoustic emission (TEOAE) amplitudes when compared to a similar adult population without SOAEs. Twenty-four normal-hearing subjects participated in the investigation. They were(More)
Parametric variations in the ratio of primary-tone frequencies were explored to optimize the amplitude of the 2f1-f2 distortion product otoacoustic emission for clinical purposes. Ten ears from 5 normally hearing human subjects were examined with primary tones geometrically centred around the standard audiometric frequencies of 0.5, 1, 1.5, 2, 3, 4, 6 and 8(More)
The effect of systematic variations in the relative levels (L1, L2) of two primary tones (f1, f2) on the amplitude of the distortion product otoacoustic emission (DPOAE) at 2f1-f2 and f1 < f2 was investigated in 14 ears from 7 normally hearing human subjects. The primary tones (f2:f1 = 1.23) were geometrically centred at the standard clinical frequencies of(More)
Forty-six patients with cystic fibrosis and chronic bronchopulmonary Pseudomonas aeruginosa infection entered a study of tobramycin-related chronic and acute nephro- and acousticovestibular toxicity. The patients (mean age, 15.7 years) had previously received 2-week courses of tobramycin therapy, for a mean cumulative total of 279 days each. The cumulative(More)
The aim of this study was to ascertain whether a new ultrasound technique, namely pulse inversion imaging, could assess the arrival of a contrast agent in the hepatic veins, and to describe possible advantages of this procedure in determining transit time over a previously described method based upon spectral Doppler quantification. 15 subjects were scanned(More)
Auditory SN-10 responses and summed middle latency responses (40/sec MLR) were obtained from 36 full-term newborns. Wave V latencies from 20-70 dB nHL were in agreement with previous studies. Although the amplitudes of the SN-10 and the 40/sec MLR paradigms were not significantly different, we were able to detect the lowest thresholds with an SN-10 response(More)
286 normal subject representing both sexes and seven age groups from 10 to greater than or equal to 70 years were tested with both conventional pure tone audiometry and high frequency audiometry (4--20 kHz) using a previously described free field system. The subjects were selected according to very strict criteria. Results from conventional audiometry are(More)
