Automated pure-tone threshold estimations from extrapolated distortion product otoacoustic emission (DPOAE) input/output functions - Zurich Open Repository and Archive


Schmuziger, N; Patscheke, J; Probst, R (2006). Automated pure-tone threshold estimations from extrapolated distortion product otoacoustic emission (DPOAE) input/output functions. Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, 119(4):1937-1939.

Abstract

A promising approach to the prediction of pure-tone thresholds through the estimation of DPOAE thresholds by input/output functions was recently published by Boege and Janssen [J. Acoust. Soc. Am. 111, 1810-1818 (2002)]. On the basis of their results, a device that enables automated measurements of these thresholds was recently developed. The purpose of the current study was to evaluate the reliability of this instrument for the objective assessment of hearing loss in 101 ears with either normal hearing or with cochlear hearing loss of up to 50 dB HL. The median difference between pure-tone hearing and DPOAE thresholds was approximately 2 dB. For individual subjects, however, DPOAE thresholds differed from pure-tone thresholds by up to 40 dB. We find, therefore, that the clinical benefits of this method are probably limited.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
