Audiological Evaluation for Exaggerated Hearing Level.
Engelberg, Marvin W.
Described are clinical techniques and procedures useful in evaluations for exaggerated hearing levels. Discussed are considerations of the audiologist, his equipment, and erroneous findings; patient cooperation, anticipated hearing handicaps, detection of exaggeration, and order of test presentation; voluntary aid conduction audiometry, thresholds, Pure-Tone Stenger Test, and masked air conduction thresholds; voluntary bone conduction audiometry, thresholds, and the sensorineural activity level test; and speech threshold audiometry, speech reception thresholds, the speech Stenger, and masked speech reception threshold. Also of concern are speech discrimination audiometry, nonmasked and masked discrimination tests, and estimate of speech reception threshold; electrodermal audiometry including pretest considerations, the equipment, the test itself, its administration, and thresholds; and delayed feedback audiometry, estimation of speech reception and air condiction thresholds, and repetition of previous tests. Brief reports are presented for a number of minor tests, and evaluation conclusions are considered. (JM)
