Abstract

This study examines the relationship between Auditory Brain Stem, Behavioural Observation and Impedance  Audiometry in a paediatric population. Particular reference is made to the strengths and weaknesses of Auditory  Brainstem Audiometry applied to this age group. Results indicate that in some cases diagnosis of hearing loss is made primarily on the basis of this test, while in other cases the test serves as an excellent check on Behavioural and Impedance Audiometry.
