There are many ways to assess hearing in the adult population. Most people think of raising their hand when they hear a tone, and it is true that this can be a part of standard audiometric testing. However, objective measures like electrocochleography and otoacoustic emissions are also useful to evaluate the function of certain parts of the auditory pathway. Depending on a patient's symptoms and their ability to participate in the evaluation process, one or many different tests may be necessary. Please explore the above links to learn more about different types of hearing tests that may be used in an adult population.
