Moreover, what is BOA in audiology?
Behavioural Observation Audiometry (BOA): BOA is a test used to observe hearing behaviour to sound when VRA is not possible. This is often used for infants less than 6 months of age or who are developmentally not able to turn their head towards a sound. Additional testing is often necessary to supplement BOA.
Also, what is conventional audiometry? Conditioned Orientation Reflex (COR) Audiometry: same as VRA, but more than one sound source and puppet reinforcer used. Conventional Audiometry consistently used in children ages 5 and older: child raises hand or provides verbal response (for example, "beep", "I hear it") in response to the sound stimulus.
Correspondingly, what is a sedated hearing test?
A sedated ABR hearing test means special medicine helps your child sleep through the test; an unsedated test means your child is naturally sleeping through it. An unsedated hearing testing is typically done on newborns to 5 months of age. A sedated ABR hearing test is typically done then.
What is pediatric audiometry?
