Brainstem evoked response audiometry is also termed as ABR (Audiometry Brainstem Response).
This is an objective neurophysiological method for the evaluation of the hearing threshold and diagnosing retrocochlear lesions. The aim of the study was to investigate the hearing level in children with suspected hearing loss or pathological speech development.
ABR/BERA audiometry refers to an evoked potential generated by a brief click or tone pip transmitted from an acoustic transducer in the form of an insert earphone or headphone. The elicited waveform response is measured by surface electrodes typically placed at the vertex of the scalp and ear lobes
