Influence of the individual growth behaviour of distortion product otoacoustic emissions (DPOAEs) on alterations of their levels due to minor conductive hearing loss (CHL)

Bernhard Olzowy, Christoph Deppe & Peter Kummer
Introduction: Even minor CHL can strongly influence DPOAE levels, since both the primary tones during forward transmission and the distortion product during backward transmission are damped. DPOAEs are evoked using two simultaneously applied stimulus tones that differ slightly in frequency (f1 and f2)[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
