  SHLOMO SILMAN, STANLEY A. GELFAND, NEIL PIPER, CAROL ANN SILVERMAN and LESLIE VAN FRANK () Prediction of Hearing Loss from the Acoustic-Reflex Threshold The Acoustic Reflex /BCited by:   Jerger J, Hayes D, Anthony L, et al: Factors Influencing Prediction of Hearing Level From the Acoustic Reflex. Monograph 1 in Maico Audiological Monograph Series, to be published. Cited by:   This study explored an alternative procedure for predicting hearing level from the acoustic reflex threshold. The acoustic reflex threshold (ART) was measured for pure‐tone and noise‐band signals on subjects. A series of regression equations were developed for predicting the pure‐tone average (PTA) from high‐pass noise and Hz reflex by: 1. The acoustic stapedius reflex (ASR) is the sound-evoked contraction of the stapedius muscle. The ASR is mediated by a neural network, receiving its afferent input from the VIIIth cranial (auditory.

The ability of the sensitivity prediction from acoustic reflex (SPAR) technique to estimate hearing loss in 32 trainable mentally retarded Ss (adults and young adults with normal to profound hearing loss) was investigated by comparing measured pure-tone thresholds determined through tangible-reinforcement operant-conditioning audiometry with predicted sensitivity from the SPAR procedure.   The sensitivity of prediction of acoustic reflex, in determining the level of hearing loss, is especially useful in paediatric populations. It is based on the difference between the pure tone stapedius reflex threshold and contralateral white noise. The white noise threshold was 60 dB and that of pure tone was 80 dB. The acoustic reflex. The acoustic reflex (AR) (the reflexive contraction of the middle-ear muscles in response to sound stimulation) has a long history of clinical use in defining middle-ear, cochlear, and VIIIth-nerve disorders. The AR and other audiologic tests (e.g., air and bone conduction thresholds, tympanometry, and reflex decay) can. Factors influencing prediction of hearing level from the acoustic reflex method for predicting hearing loss, using a comparison of acoustic reflex thresholds for pure tones and broad-band.

Seven methods of hearing loss prediction from acoustic reflex data were compared in adult subjects. The prediction methods were two versions of Sensitivity Prediction by the Acoustic Reflex (SPAR), four regression equations and a bivariate plot technique. • To study the effect of age on prediction of hearing level from the acoustic reflex, we compared reflex prediction with the actual hearing level in patients. The following three age groups were defined: children aged 2 to 12 years; young adults aged . an acoustic reflex threshold at only one frequency and a single set intensity (~95 or dB HL. An ipsilateral acoustic reflex threshold tends to be attained at a slightly lower intensity ossicles and tympanic membrane when stimulus than an acoustic reflex threshold elicited by a contralateral stimulus.
