Hearing Tests/Audiograms

Flu Clinic

We perform audiograms (rigorous hearing tests) to assess employees’ hearing
and for OSHA compliance.

A hearing test provides a measurement of the sensitivity of a person’s hearing
across the full range of speech. The test will measure the quietest sound that can
be heard several points across the speech range – this hearing test is termed an
audiogram.

The physician performing your hearing test will explain what is going to happen
and the order of things to be done. They will want to have a look into your ears to
ensure there is no blockage or any reason the hearing test cannot be performed.
They will then want to take a brief history of your hearing, when you noticed
problems, did they occur gradually or suddenly, and if you have had any infections
or injury that may have caused the hearing difficulties and the problems you have
had to deal with.

The physician will then test your hearing by performing an audiogram. The test
will take about 20-30 minutes. You will be played a series of sounds through
headphones and be asked to respond in some way that you have heard the sound
normally by pressing a button every time no matter how quiet or faint.
