Abstract

The present study was designed to evaluate transiently evoked otoacoustic emissions in an otologically normal adult population. Using the ILO 88 Otodynamic Analyzer, the recorded otoacoustic emission responses were analyzed for five parameters. Considering the variability of instrumentation and technique in otoacoustic emission testing, we have defined a normative data pool using standard commercially available testing equipment. These data should facilitate comparison with data acquired in various pathologic states. The test-retest validity of this procedure also was evaluated and was found to be high. Use of click evoked otoacoustic emissions, with some caveats, appears to be a promising technique for further research into the assessment of normal/abnormal cochlear function.
