In previous articles we have talked about the different hearing tests available to help diagnose your hearing health condition. This article will go over the Auditory Brainstem Response (ABR) test. This type of testing is done on children as well as newborns to identify loss of hearing.

After a visit to the audiologist, the professional determines if signs shown for hearing loss may or may not be connected to the brain. If there is suspicion an ABR test is performed. As the American Speech Language Hearing Association (ASHA) explains “The auditory brainstem response (ABR) test gives information about the inner ear (cochlea) and brain pathways for hearing.” The ABR records brain wave activity when a person is exposed to sound. The results are analyzed to determine hearing damage.

If you would like to learn more about the Auditory Brainstem Response hearing test, as well as information regarding hearing loss, contact your local New Generation Miami Hearing Center. An audiologist will diagnose  and treat your hearing health condition.
