Transient Evoked Otoacoustic Emissions (TEOAE)


When we speak about otoacoustics emissions, we primarily think about transient otoacoustic emissions also called TEOAE which are most used in clinical examination. OAE are recorded by a small probe place in the external ear canal. Detection of transient otoacoustic emissions (TEOAE) is a real asset in the series of hearing tests.

Method:

The TEOAE are otoacoustic emissions by click, which means that we are going to test patient ear with frequencies between 2000 and 4000 Hz. The result is represented by a curve that simply shows whether otoacoustic emission is present or not. This is an objective test because he does required cooperation of the patient. This test is very important, in especially in the examination of newborns, because if the acoustic otoemissions are present it means that hearing of newborn does not present deafness superior to 30-40 dB. It is a screening test routine, more and more used in examination of newborns.
