When there is a decrease or loss in hearing the sound, Pure Tone Audiometry comes into a picture. Pure Tone Audiometry or in short PTA is a kind of hearing test used to identify the hearing threshold frequency. It is also known as behavioral kind of testing as it depends on the co-operation of the patient during the diagnosis of the hearing loss. PTA measures only the audibility threshold of hearing among all the other features of the hearing loss. The type of loss can also be located through an air-bone gap, as PTA uses both air and bone Audiometry for measurement. Aditi Hearing is standardized with the calibration of the test environment and the ISO testing types of equipment that carry out the test effectively.

Impedance Audiometry test is used to detect two causes. One is to identify the working condition of the tympanic membrane and middle ear using the Tympanometry by creating air pressure in the ear canal. Secondly, it is used to analyze the acoustic reflex pathways of the middle ear which has carnival nerves and auditory brainstem. Aditi Hearing undertakes both the test to recognize the hearing loss causes.
Tympanometry is not the type of hearing test; it is used to measure the transmission of energy in the middle ear. Tympanometry is the component of the audiometric analysis. The test is not used to determine the hearing sensitivity. The results obtained are always viewed with pure tone audiometry. Tympanometry is very useful in Otitis media diagnosis by exhibiting the issues of a middle ear.
After finding that the path is clear to eardrum with the help of otoscopy, the test is performed by placing the tympanometer probe in the ear canal. The instrument makes changes in the eardrum pressure, produces a pure tone and records the responses received by the differential pressure of sound.
