About this item

This textbook introduces audiology, covering the field as a discipline and career; the fundamentals of hearing science, including the properties of sound and the anatomy and functions of the auditory system; and clinical audiology, including audiometric testing, audiogram interpretation, speech audiometry, masking for pure-tone and speech audiometry, disorders of the auditory system, and screening for hearing loss. It includes variations in procedures for pediatrics and selected auditory pathologies from different parts of the auditory system, with typical findings for more commonly found ear diseases and hearing disorders. Reorganized, this edition has four new chapters: outer and middle ear assessment, with a new section on otoscopy, more on the use of different immittance probe-tone frequencies, and a section on the use of wideband acoustic immittance; evoked physiological responses, with more information and examples on the use of otoacoustic emissions, auditory brainstem responses, and auditory steady-state responses for assessing neural pathologies and auditory sensitivity; implantable devices; and the vestibular system. It has updated figures, including photos of new hearing instruments and amplification devices; figures that include clinical data from different audiology tests in the chapter on disorders; and access to a companion website. The chapter on hearing aids has been made more appropriate as an introduction for undergraduate students. Annotation ©2018 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
