Auditory brain-stem responses (ABR) was performed in the determination of hearing threshold in 71 infants and children born 1980-1985, all belonging to high risk groups or difficult-to-test children (median age 17 months, range 2-80). In a follow up study, 41 of the children were tested with pure tone audiometry approximately 2 1/2 years later. A significant correlation was revealed between the threshold obtained by ABR and the pure tone threshold at 2 kHz (Kendall tau C = 0.59, p less than 0… CONTINUE READING
