Audiology Clinics at ETSU

The majority of patients in this clinic are referred for otoneurologic auditory brainstem response (ABR) evaluations. Other procedures include extratympanic or tympanic electrocochleography for patients suspicious of endolymphatic hydrops as well as ABR threshold evaluations for patients suspected of pseudohypacusis. An average of thirty patients per month are evaluated and the instrumentation utilized in this clinic includes a Nicolet Spirit 2000. If indicated, then evoked otoacoustic emissions (both TEOAEs and DPOAEs) can be obtained from these patients using the Bio-Logic Scout.  Evoked otoacoustic emissions are routinely obtained from patients being seen for compensation and pension examinations. Owen Murnane, Ph.D., is director of the Electrophysiology Clinic.
