The National Center for Rehabilitative Auditory Research has developed a protocol to provide early identification of ototoxicity for patients receiving ototoxic medications. The initial work involved patients with relatively good high-frequency hearing and resulted in the use of an individualized, sensitive frequency range separated by 1/6th-octave intervals. This protocol tested pure-tone frequencies at 1/6th-octave steps above 9 kHz, but only conventional audiometric frequencies were tested… CONTINUE READING
