MEMBERSHIP CONSULTATION on: Recommended Procedure Pure-tone air-conduction and bone-conduction threshold audiometry with and without masking

The Professional Guidance Group are happy to announce that they have made some minor changes to The Recommended Procedure on Pure-tone air-conduction and bone-conduction threshold audiometry with and without masking.

They would like to draw your attention to the following – there are 3 amendments (all other areas of the document remain unchanged):

1. Section 7.3 – A line has been added to Bone-conduction audiometry without masking test stimuli p.12

2. Section 8.8 – Procedure for masking – Feedback was received that this section was generally difficult to understand in the 2011 version, particularly with regards to students and those who teach them. Therefore this sections has been modified to increase ease of use on page 18 – 19

3. Section 9 – Audiometric descriptors – The descriptor for mild hearing loss has been changed from 20-40dB to 21-40dB
