Abstract
A comprehensive test instrument, the Auditory Evaluation System (AES) is presented which utilizes advanced techniques in OAEs, middle-ear function evaluations, and audiometry. The AES utilizes advancements in OAE measurement techniques to effectively and more sensitively monitor hearing health. Middle ear evaluations utilized are a combination of novel techniques coupled with the existing techniques. The proposed OAE strategies support middle ear pathology identification. Additionally, the AES automatically calibrates itself in-situ, which significantly increases the repeatability and validity of all evaluations. The objective nature of the AES evaluations prevent malingering and make referrals easier. The AES also focuses on improving the performance of the hearing conservation programs (HCPs) by identifying weaknesses in the program and individuals who are more susceptible to NIHL.
