Abstract

Hearing tests are routinely performed in hospitals, out-patient clinics, schools (in mass screening programmes) and other locations. Though testing procedures can vary and can be of varying degrees of sophistication, the most commonly adopted is the standard pure-tone test, in which the patient is exposed to a range of single tones at various frequencies and intensities and is required to acknowledge their perception, allowing the clinician to obtain a broad picture of hearing performance over the frequency spectrum of clinical interest.
