High Frequency Audiometry

We use a ‘’ MADSEN Astera²’’ high frequency audiometry device in our clinic. It provides valuable information with special test modules for tinnitus assessment. Makes evaluations easy

In addition to conventional audiometry (125-8,000 Hz), extended high-frequency audiometry (9,000-20,000 Hz) is available.

high-frequency audiometry as one of the exams used on hearing monitoring of individuals exposed to high sound pressure in their work environment, due to the method́ s greater sensitivity in early identification of hearing loss caused by noise. The frequencies that compose the exam are generally between 9 KHz and 20KHz, depending on the equipment.

high frequency audiometry in tinnitus patients with normal conventional pure-tone audiometry (PTA) are related to tinnitus laterality and tinnitus severity. These findings suggest that the HF-audiometry ( high-frequency audiometry) can be a useful complementary audiological test in a comprehensive diagnostic assessment of tinnitus patients. It should be recommended as a standard procedure in tinnitus patients of younger age including children in the absence of clinical signs of hearing impairment. HF-audiometry might be of therapeutic value within the scope of counseling in explaining the etiopathogenesis of tinnitus to patients with normal conventional PTA but impaired high frequency hearing thresholds.
