Why should I have my hearing tested?
Hearing tests are conducted for different reasons during childhood and adulthood.
The first months and years of a baby’s life are important for speech and language development. Undetected hearing loss can lead to serious cognitive issues if not addressed early. Newborns are encouraged to undergo a hearing screening which is offered at no cost to Toronto residents.
Hearing loss can be temporary or permanent in children. A hearing test can help detect any abnormalities in a child’s hearing and help the parents, physicians, and audiologists address this issue.
Hearing loss due to noise exposure is common to musicians, construction workers, or anyone exposed to loud noise for long periods of time. A hearing test can help detect any deterioration in hearing for these people.
Hearing loss due to aging, know as presbycusis, is extremely common and can lead to many social and psychological issues. Having ones hearing tested will help diagnose this type of hearing loss.
How long does a hearing test take?
A typical hearing test for an adult takes approximately 25 minutes.
A typical hearing test for a child takes approximately 35 minutes.
What is involved in a hearing test and is it painful?
A standard hearing test consists of three components, a pure tone audiogram, a speech discrimination test, and a tympanometric assessment.
During pure tone testing, the clinciains will present a pure tone stimulus at different intensities to measure the faintest sound a person can detect. This is charted out across a number of frequencies. The resulting graph is referred to an audiogram. Learn how to interpret an audiogram.
The speech discrimination test assesses how well a person understands words. For this test the clinician will present words at different decibel levels and then ask the person being tested to repeat the words. A percentage score is given, anything above 90% is considered excellent.
A tympanometric assessment measures the volume of your middle ear and the mobility of your ear-drum. A flat tympanometric result can signify a punctured ear-drum, or fluid build-up behind the ear-drum.
