Abstract

Is Hearing Impairment by Audiometry as Much a Cognitive Score as Cognitive Domain Batteries?

Paul J. Regal*, Peter Lange

This article is about hearing acuity in a memory clinic. This memory clinic is typical of almost all clinics
in that background noise is low and there are no alarms or signals from monitors as in emergency
departments. We performed pure tone audiometry with the Siemen’s hear check Screener (Siemens
AG, Munich) at three intensities and two frequencies (1000 and 3000 Htz). We analysed the best ear for
hearing acuity.
