The First Step To Better Hearing
Better hearing begins with a careful and thorough evaluation of your ability to hear. A diagnostic hearing exam determines the type of hearing loss, the degree of hearing loss, and the treatments possible to assist in hearing better. At Flourtown Audiology we use the latest technologies to assess your hearing ability using a variety of hearing tests.
We Offer More Than Just Hearing Tests!
At Flourtown Audiology we also offer speech testing, speech in noise testing and aided testing for your hearing needs.
What To Expect During A Hearing Test
Detailed Medical History
Through a series of questions we will learn about your medical history. We will also ask about any medications and supplements you take.
Physical Ear Examination
The next step is an ear examination. We will examine the structure of your ear with an otoscope to see if there are any obvious ear issues.
Impedance audiometry involves sealing the ear canal with an acoustic probe combined with a pressure pump. Reference sounds are played whilst the pressure is rapidly changed. The difference between the pressure emitted and that recorded by the probe depends upon the impedance of the middle ear. It is therefore possible to determine the amount of sound energy absorbed by the tympanic membrane.
