What is otoacoustic emissions evaluation?

Also known as: OAEs evaluation, Transient Evoked Otoacoustic Emssions (TEOAE), or Distortion Product Ototacoustic Emissions (DPOAE).

The Otoacoustic Emissions (OAEs) evaluation is used to find out how the inner ear (i.e., the cochlea) is functioning. OAEs are commonly used in Universal Newborn Hearing Screenings (UNHS) and as a part of a comprehensive hearing test for patients of all ages.
