OBJECTIVE To assess the relationship of loudness growth and the click-evoked auditory brain stem response (ABR) wave V latency-intensity function (LIF) in listeners with normal hearing or cochlear hearing loss. The effect of hearing loss configuration on the intensity functions was also examined. DESIGN Behavioral and electrophysiological intensity(More)
This study examined the clinical feasibility, validity, and reliability of loudness growth assessment using cross-modality matching (CMM) between line length and loudness in 16 children 4 to 12 years old with normal hearing or bilateral sensorineural hearing losses ranging from moderate to severe in degree. Eight adult listeners with normal hearing were(More)
OBJECTIVES The goals were to examine the prevalence of a screening outcome pattern of auditory brainstem response fail/otoacoustic emission pass (ABR-F/OAE-P) in a cohort of infants in well-infant nurseries (WINs), to profile children at risk for auditory neuropathy spectrum disorder, and to compare inpatient costs for 2 screening protocols using automated(More)
PURPOSE To examine annually over a period of 24 years, the high frequency hearing sensitivity in different groups of urban female adolescents with a low socioeconomic status (SES) and residential foster care. METHODS Hearing screening (15 decibel [dB] hearing level ranging from 1,000 to 8,000 Hertz [Hz]) and threshold (>15 dB hearing level) records were(More)
PURPOSE This investigation reports on quantitative and qualitative follow-up information obtained from a preschool audiologic screening program covering a 10-year period (1995 to 2004). METHOD The audiologic screening consisted of a hearing (pure tone) and tympanometry screening. A total of 34,979 children, 3 to 5 years of age, were screened. RESULTS(More)
The test efficiency and reliability of loudness assessment using a computer-controlled method of cross-modality matching (CMM) between line length and loudness was investigated in children 4 to 12 years with normal hearing or mild to severe degrees of sensorineural hearing loss. Adult listeners with normal hearing served as a comparison group.(More)
Loudness-intensity functions for click stimuli were obtained from 30 adult listeners having normal (n = 10), flat (n = 10), or sloping (n = 10) high-frequency cochlear hearing loss configurations. The procedure of cross-modality matching (CMM) between loudness and perceived line length [R. P. Hellman and C. H. Meiselman, J. Speech Hear. Res. 31, 605-615(More)
Loudness judgments play an important role in the selection and fitting of the electroacoustic characteristics of hearing aids such as the maximum output or the compression ratio (Fabry and Schum 1994). To aid in this process, subjective judgments of loudness are often obtained to define regions of comfort or discomfort (i.e., most comfortable loudness level(More)
Loudness growth prediction using normal templates of loudness derived with ABR and DPOAE measures was investigated in 20 children 4 to 12 years and 20 adults with normal hearing. An ABR click latency-intensity function (LIF), ABR 2 kHz tone LIF, and DPOAE 2 kHz amplitude-intensity function (AIF) were recorded from each listener. A loudness-intensity(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to determine the national training practices of speech-language pathology graduate programs in outer and middle ear screening. METHOD Directors of all American Speech-Language-Hearing Association-accredited speech-language pathology graduate programs (N = 254; Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and(More)
