[The value of audiological screening tests in paediatric practice (author's transl)]

H S Johannsen
HNO 1975, 23 (3): 91-4
Pure tone threshold levels using play audiometry were compared with the sound screening test in 100 children in whom the acoustic-palebral reflex was also tested. The following conclusions are drawn from the findings. 1. A mild hearing loss and a loss above 1 000 cps in not demonstrable on the screening test. 2. A moderate hearing loss is undetected in two thirds, when only the screening test is used. 3. 10% of children with a severe hearing loss appeared to have normal hearing using the screening test only. 4. The failure to demonstrate with a few exceptions the acoustic-palpebral reflex suggests at least a moderate hearing loss, but the presence of the reflex is not proof of normal hearing.
