92587 OAE As Audio Screening Tool

Gustavo Posted Fri 13th of January, 2012 15:59:54 PM

We just recently purchased an OAE hearing machine and my understanding from how it was explained to us by the sales rep was that this machine is commonly use as a hearing screening tool. As a pediatric practice, could this machine be used on every physical, regardless of age, as a way to test the patient's hearing?

Thanks for your response in advance.
