ABR - Adults

 

The Auditory Brainstem Response or ABR is a neurological test; it's similar to an EEG. To complete the test, the doctor will play sounds into the ears through headphones and then measure responses from the ear, hearing-nerve and brain with electrodes placed on the forehead and behind the ears. The patient will be resting quietly or sleeping during the test, which is completely non-invasive. The ABR test will allow the doctor to determine whether there are any problems within the auditory system. In most cases, the results will be received immediately following the procedure.
