Adult hearing assessment and consultation
Pure Tone Audiometry (PTA) is the main hearing test to determine the softest sounds that one can hear across the speech frequencies (250 to 8000Hz). During the test, the testee is required to respond when he/she hears a tone by pressing a button or raising his/her hand. A comprehensive PTA is carried out with headphones and bone conductor. The results will identify the degree, type, and configuration of a hearing loss thus enabling diagnosis and management.
