Abstract:

Currently, audiometric tests and procedures, equipment and its calibration, and policies with respect to audiological personnel show a considerable variation not only among but also within the Armed Services. Standardization appears both feasible and urgent. Specific recommendations are made. It is believed that standardization along the recommended guide lines would substantially increase the reliability and efficiency of auditory testing in the Armed Services. Author
