Background noise can and will distract the person being tested during a hearing examination. The only background noises that should be heard are what you administer during the various stages of the hearing test. Any other sound and noise out of your control is disruptive and can affect test results.
Which hearing protection products are the “best?” It’s a subjective question, and to determine the correct answer is a near-impossible task. We recently did the research, scouring through website after website to get a consensus opinion of which products are most preferred by people who frequently need their hearing protected. In the end, our efforts uncovered one thing: opinions are varied.
Performing a videonystagmography (VNG) test has its many benefits. For one, the person being tested can obtain peace of mind from learning the cause of their dizziness. On the other hand, the practitioner can record the test and save the video for further review and future use as training material. This is especially true when you have VNG equipment that features a situational camera.
Having your audiology equipment calibrated yearly may seem like a chore, but it’s necessary. Every test result must be based on the most accurate signal that can be obtained. Regular calibration of your equipment ensures that the hearing level that is indicated by the audiometer complies with the strict values that are set by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) or the product manufacturer’s specific references for hearing thresholds.
Properly maintaining and caring for your audiology equipment is paramount. A new hearing screening or diagnostic instrument isn’t cheap, so you want to get as many years out of it as possible. However, regardless of how well you’ve taken care of your audiometer, tympanometer, or OAE, there comes a time when you need to consider upgrading your equipment to ensure you’re operating at your most efficient and your patients are receiving the best treatment possible.
