Audiogram

An audiogram is a chart used to plot out hearing sensitivity and visually display the results of an audiogram hearing test. The quietest sounds a person can hear—thresholds—are measured across a broad range of pitches.

Care for Hearing Loss

Some hearing disorders are medically or surgically correctable if they are caused by certain middle or outer ear problems; this will be determined by an ear, nose, and throat doctor. Permanent hearing disorders of the inner ear can be managed with hearing aids and/or other assistive listening devices available through an audiologist.
