Thread: Interpreting Audiogram Results

  1. #1

    Default Interpreting Audiogram Results

    I recently had an audiogram, the results of which I've posted below. I was told I have cookie bite hearing. I'd greatly appreciate it if someone would provide me with an explanation of these results and what it might mean in terms of:

    1) the exam comments,
    2) my severity of hearing loss (mild, moderate, moderately severe, or profound), and
    3) the type of hearing aids that I might expect to be steered towards?

    Name of Audiometer: GSI

    Exam Comments: pure-tone average 57dB AD 67dB AS
    Absent left ipsi and contra reflexes
    Absent right ipsi at 4000Hz and all right contra reflexes.

    Speech Audiometry
    Speech Reception Threshold (SRT): Right Ear 50, Left Ear 70
    Word Recognition (SWR) (Type: NU-6) Right Ear 80% AD, Left Ear 76% AS

    Pure Tone Audiometry: Current
    0250.Hz L-45 R-35
    0500.Hz L-60 R-50
    1000.Hz L-75 R-55
    2000.Hz L-75 R-65
    3000.Hz L-60 R-60
    4000.Hz L-75 R-50
    6000.Hz L-80 R-45
    8000.Hz L-85 R-45

    Default I'll try to help....

    ...I was told I have cookie bite hearing...

    1) the exam comments, Look at the shape of the curve on the audiogram for your right ear.
    2) my severity of hearing loss (mild, moderate for your R ear, moderately severe for your left ear, or profound), and
    3) the type of hearing aids that I might expect to be steered towards? I'd recommend BTEs but you'll have many options.

    Speech Reception Threshold (SRT): Right Ear 50 dB needed for comfortable speech reception, Left Ear 70
    Word Recognition (SWR) (Type: NU-6) Right Ear 80% AD, Left Ear 76% AS
    Ability to repeat common words noted at % of success
    Pure Tone Audiometry: Current
    0250.Hz L-45 R-35
    0500.Hz L-60 R-50
    1000.Hz L-75 R-55
    2000.Hz L-75 R-65
    3000.Hz L-60 R-60
    4000.Hz L-75 R-50
    6000.Hz L-80 R-45
    8000.Hz L-85 R-45
    This is the amount of hearing loss by ear at the noted frequencies. Loss is in dB (decibel).

    I think he meant hearing in noise test or speech in noise.

    Thanks, jay_man2. I am new to all of this, so I'm unfamiliar with a lot of the terminology. Thanks for the clarification.
