The aim of this study was to investigate otoacoustic emissions in young adults who had a history of otitis media (OM) in childhood and to assess whether a history of OM had an irreversible effect on hearing. We studied 116 cases between 15 and 25 years of age, divided into three groups. Each subject underwent a single examination comprising otoscopy, pure-tone audiometry (PTA), tympanometry, and transient evoked otoacoustic emission (TEOAE) and distortion product otoacoustic emission (DPOAE… 
EXPRESSION OF DISTORTION PRODUCT OTOACOUSTIC EMISSIONS IN CHILDREN WITH OTITIS MEDIA WITH EFFUSION
Introduction: Otoacoustic emissions are sounds that result from energy generated in the cochlea. Because they are transmitted from the cochlea to the ear canal where they can be measured, middle ear
ORIGINALNI NAUČNI RADOVI ORIGINAL STUDIES
TLDR
This research shows that disorders in dynamic characteristics of the middle ear in patients with serous otitis obstruct the transmission of acoustic energy and affect the measurability of transient otoacoustic emissions, especially if the effusion is mucoid and hearing loss of 15 decibel hearing level.
Effect of chronic suppurative otitis media on distortion product otoacoustic emission input-output functions in conventional and ultra-high frequencies.
TLDR
There was a significant reduction in the rate of ears with measurable distortion product otoacoustic emissions in the clinical group, especially for conventional frequencies, and the effect of chronic suppurative otitis media was more pronounced in the conventional frequency range compared to the smaller effect seen in the ultra-high frequency range.
Effects of changes in dynamic characteristics of the middle ear on transient-evoked otoacoustic emissions.
TLDR
This research shows that disorders in dynamic characteristics of the middle ear in patients with serous otitis obstruct the transmission of acoustic energy and affect the measurability of transient otoacoustic emissions, especially if the effusion is mucoid and hearing loss of 15 decibel hearing level.
Alteration of distortion product otoacoustic emission input/output functions in subjects with a previous history of middle ear dysfunction
TLDR
The data from the present study show that reduced amplitude DPOAEs are associated with a previous history of middle ear complications, and the corresponding D POAE slopes were affected at only 1 tested frequency, suggesting that the cochlear non-linearity is preserved.
Follow-up of childhood hearing disorders: hearing loss, tinnitus and dizziness in adulthood. A population-based cohort study
TLDR
It is suggested that childhood chronic suppurative otitis media and childhood hearing loss after recurrent acute otitisMedia are associated with increased risk of dizziness in adulthood, which might reflect a permanent effect of inflammatory mediators or toxins on the vestibular system.
Identification of hearing disorders in preschool children Identificação de alterações auditivas em crianças pré-escolares Identificación de trastornos auditivos en niños en edad preescolar
TLDR
More than 30.76% of children at risk of hearing impairment were identified and should be referred for medical and audiological evaluation.
Relationship Between Distortion Product – Otoacoustic Emissions (DPOAEs) and High-Frequency Acoustic Immittance Measures
TLDR
Changes in the properties of the middle ear (as detected by the 1000 Hz tympanometry) can be considered as prime candidates for the observed variability in the DP-grams and the DP I/O functions.
Correlation between DPOAE I/O functions and pure-tone thresholds.
TLDR
The 1 dB HL resolution pure tone thresholds and the above-mentioned variables had a direct impact on the high correlation between the measures studied, and it also reduced response variability.

TLDR
The charge of the Subcommittee on Childhood Hearing Screening was to develop evidence‐based recommendations for screening hearing of children age 6 months through high school using evidence-based hearing screening methods.

Auditory Consequences of Recurrent Acute Purulent Otitis Media
TLDR
The results suggest that the middle ear mechanics of children with recurrent acute otitis media are affected, and also that their cochlear function might be disturbed.
Hearing deficits in young adults who had a history of otitis media in childhood: use of personal stereos had no effect on hearing.
TLDR
Recurrent OM in childhood may have an irreversible effect on the middle ear and the cochlea and may lead to hearing deficits in later life and no interaction with PS exposure is seen.
Hearing and acute otitis media in 13-year-old children.
TLDR
It is concluded that childhood AOM, even if it occurs frequently, seems not to have a significant harmful long-term effect on hearing.
High frequency hearing following otitis media with effusion in childhood.
TLDR
78 children treated for secretory otitis media at the age of 4.4 and 18.6, their hearing was checked by means of conventional and high frequency (HF) audiometry and the average hearing level was nearly normal and no air-bone gap could be found.
Clinical Application of Otoacoustic Emissions: What do we Know about Factors Influencing Measurement and Analysis?
TLDR
It is argued that the transition from OAE measurement by hearing scientists in laboratory settings to routine application by audiologists in the clinic will be greatly facilitated by comprehensive, large-scale studies of the effects of subject characteristics, such as gender and age, on both transient evoked and distortion product otoacoustic emissions.

The range of DPOAE values obtained in a large cohort of 6-year-old children in school settings are described and possible ear asymmetry, gender and history of ear infection effects on the data are examined to examine a variety of significant effects.

TLDR
In an investigation in university students, questionnaire responses on childhood OM histories were evaluated for 31 subjects reporting no known OM histories and it was concluded that the questionnaire approach was sufficiently valid in obtaining information from adults about Childhood OM histories.
