Electrocochleography III: Clinical Applications


Course Preview

Course Description

An advanced course that describes the various clinical applications for ECochG, including its use in:– Diagnosing/assessing/monitoring Meniere’s disease/endolymphatic hydrops

— Enhancing wave I of the Auditory Brainstem Response

— Pediatric applications related to newborn hearing screening and diagnosis of auditory neuropathy/dysynchrony

Case study examples are included for all of the above applications.

Learning Objectives:

Understand how ECochG is used to:

  • help diagnose, assess and monitor Meniere’s disease/endolymphatic hydrops
  • enhance the measurement of wave I of the ABR in less-than-optimal recording conditions
  • improve the sensitivity of newborn hearing screening approaches, and aid in the diagnosis of auditory neuropathy/dysynchrony.
