Abstract:

The validity and reliability of stimulus-frequency otoacoustic emissions SFOAEs were evaluated and determined with the Mimosa Acoustics SFOAE measurement system v.2.1.18. Stimulus-frequency otoacoustic emissions are sounds made by healthy inner ears to tonal stimulation. They are thought to hold the potential for diagnosis and monitoring of noise-induced hearing loss in military hearing-conservation programs. By establishing the validity and reliability of the measurement, changes in SFOAEs due to noise can be detected from artifact and test-retest variability.
