ConceptBehavioural observation audiometry (BOA) result
DescriptionObservations of an infant or young child’s unconditioned response to sound, and associated clinical interpretation.
UseUse to record child’s Minimum Response Levels (MRL’s) and reflexive responses (eg. APR) to noisemakers and speech. Recorded in the free-field measuring a binaural response. Use to record an overall interpretation of response levels and response qualities to provide an indication of the probable hearing status. BOA is generally used as a secondary testing technique in infants under 6mo to provide supporting information to objective measures of hearing levels (ABR/ SSEP). In cases where an infant cannot be conditioned to VROA, is not developmentally able to perform VROA, or if VROA equipment is unavailable, BOA may be used to obtain information about behavioural hearing. Please note: - MRL: the lowest intensity level at which a response to a stimulus is recorded. An ascending technique should be used when establishing MRL’s. - dBA: Decibels measured in the sound field using the A scale sound level filter. Using this filter, the sound level meter is thus less sensitive to very high and very low frequencies Details about assisted hearing devices used as aids in this test should be recorded in the EVALUATION.assisted_hearing_summary.
MisuseNot to be used to record hearing threshold levels (HTL’s) Not to be used to record any other assessments such as; -VROA -PTA -Play -Objective Assessments.
PurposeTo record unconditioned responses of an infant or young child’s response to auditory stimuli. To record the interpretation of responses.
