Course Abstract & Learning Objectives

Otoacoustic emissions (OAEs) are small sounds produced by the cochlea – either measured spontaneously or evoked with a stimulus – which can be valuable in adults as well as children in screening, diagnosing, and monitoring hearing loss in every hearing clinic. OAEs are most commonly used in screening newborns for hearing loss but, in this course, we will review how incorporating OAEs into every adult hearing assessment can add value and diagnostic insight. CEU/CPD: IHS 0.25H

  • Define and explain the three common types of evoked OAE measurements used today.

  • List the ways in which OAEs can be used to diagnose and monitor hearing loss, and to counsel clients.

  • Develop and implement a plan to use OAEs with adults in their hearing care practice.
