A practical monitoring procedure utilizing frequencies higher than those tested by conventional audiometry for the detection of ototoxicity has the potential for preventing or minimizing irreversible communication deficits in patients receiving aminoglycoside antibiotic therapy. If ototoxicity produced by these drugs could be detected before it progresses to involve the frequencies essential for communication, it might be possible to lower the dose or to change to another antibiotic to prevent… CONTINUE READING
