Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Ryan McCreery, M.S.(Boys Town National Research Hospital)
Description: This book provides a basic overview of electroacoustic and electrophysiological tests used in the assessment of hearing as well as illustrative case studies.
Purpose: It is designed to provide students with a basic introduction to the concepts and application of electrophysiological tests, an alternative approach to most available textbooks in this area which are often geared towards providing a comprehensive overview of the research literature. The practical focus is appropriate for clinical students, but the book also provides sufficient research background to serve as an introductory reference.
Audience: The book is squarely aimed at providing students with an introduction to the clinical application of objective auditory tests. The authors succeed in providing an in-depth discussion of important concepts, while maintaining a practical focus. Both authors are known for their work in this area.
Features: The most recent developments in this area are covered, including wideband reflectance measures and auditory steady state response (ASSR). The book is one of the first to provide an objective review of the advantages and limitations of ASSR tests. The case studies are particularly instructive examples that will help students apply the information in real clinical situations.
Assessment: Unlike other books on the use of electroacoustic and electrophysiological tests of audition, this one offers students both appropriate depth of information and a practical framework for these measures. Other books may provide more comprehensive information about one type of electrophysiological test (such as Hall's New Handbook of Auditory Evoked Responses (Allyn & Bacon 2007)), but this book offers an efficient and useful reference on the entire range of available tests.
