Reference Entry
An encyclopedia entry for "otoacoustic emission" is presented. It refers to an echo emitted by the inner ear in response to sound. Such an emission is produced only by a normally functioning ear and is recorded in a test to detect impaired hearing.

    Previous studies assumed that specific audiometric measures like low-frequency biasing were noninvasive and inexpensive techniques for diagnosing endolymphatic hydrops (EH). The aim of this study was to compare the results of low-frequency DPOAE (LF-DPOAE) with those of transtympanic...

    Purpose: This article is the 1st in a series of 4 articles on a recently completed multistate study of newborn hearing screening. Method: The study examined the efficacy of the 2-stage otoacoustic emission/automated auditory brainstem response (OAE/A-ABR) protocol for identifying hearing loss in...

    Distortion product otoacoustic emissions (DPOAEs) are weak sounds emitted from the ear when it is stimulated with two tones. They are a manifestation of the nonlinear mechanics of the inner ear. As such, they provide a noninvasive tool for the study of the inner ear mechanics involved in the...

    Sounds originating from within the inner ear, known as otoacoustic emissions (OAEs), are widely exploited in clinical practice but the mechanisms underlying their generation are not entirely clear. Here we present simulation results and theoretical considerations based on a hydrodynamic model of...

    Roughness was chosen as an attribute of the inner ear in order to study its role on the otoacoustic emissions (OAEs) and whether it has an effect or not. The role of roughness on the OAE was studied by using the nonlinear model. The roughness of the basilar membrane (BM) is minimized so that the...

    Objective: The aim of this prospective study was to investigate the effects of electrohydraulic extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) on the transient evoked otoacoustic emissions (TEOAEs) of the patients on whom ESWL was applied for urinary stones. Methods: The study group consisted of...

    Introduction: The resonant frequency is the probe frequency in which susceptance is 0 due to the neutralization of the forces of mass and stiffness components that control the middle ear. This frequency can be evaluated by multifrequency tympanometry, and the normality value for adults ranges...
