When assessing a patient with a sensorineural hearing impairment, the most simple and most widely available technical investigation is pure-tone audiometry. Although it is a subjective measure, the test is very reliable if the patient is cooperative. In this paper we review standards and test-retest reliability for pure-tone audiometry. A pure-tone… CONTINUE READING
