Overview

Audiologists and speech-pathologists will find this book quite useful in practice when dealing with EPA, or evoked potential audiometry. This book provides a clear understanding of the fundamentals of auditory average evoked potentials (AEP) and how they are applied in any clinical environment. With broad coverage and concise writing, the book emphasizes the relevance of evoked potential audiometry (EPA) to Audiology and Speech-language Pathology. Simultaneously, the book focuses on practical and technical matters, including a section on laboratory management, patient management, and report writing. References were selected to provide both a good historic background and more contemporary writings. Audiologists and other clinicians who wish to revive or expand their knowledge of evoked potential audiometry, or EPA, and university professors.
