Otoacoustic Emissions (OAE)

OAEs serve as a hearing screening for newborns, children, and adults. OAEs are completed by inserting a probe microphone into the ear canal. A sound is introduced into the ear canal and a response to that sound is measured. The response is a small echo of the sound generated by the inner ear. The presence of the response indicates that the inner ear structures are developed and working properly.
