Welcome to AuralCare, where we specialize in providing the latest technology and expert care for those suffering from hearing loss. One of the most advanced and effective options we offer is BERA (Brainstem Evoked Response Audiometry).
BERA is a highly sensitive and accurate test that measures the electrical activity in the brainstem in response to sound. This test is particularly useful for identifying and diagnosing hearing loss in infants and young children, as well as those with severe hearing loss or other complex cases.
Unlike traditional audiometry tests, BERA does not rely on the patient’s ability to respond verbally or through behavioral cues. Instead, it uses specialized electrodes to measure the electrical activity in the brainstem, providing a more accurate assessment of hearing function.
The BERA test is performed in our state-of-the-art clinic by our highly trained audiologists. It is a non-invasive and painless procedure that typically takes between 30-60 minutes to complete.
During the test, the patient will wear headphones that deliver a series of sounds at different frequencies and intensities. The electrodes will then measure the electrical activity in the brainstem in response to these sounds. The resulting data is analyzed by our audiologists to determine the patient’s hearing thresholds and identify any hearing loss.
The results of the BERA test are used to determine the best course of treatment for the patient. This may include the use of hearing aids, cochlear implants, or other assistive devices. Our audiologists will work closely with the patient to find the right solution for their specific needs and lifestyle.
At our Hearing Aid Clinic, we understand the impact that hearing loss can have on an individual’s quality of life. That’s why we are dedicated to providing the most advanced and effective solutions for our patients. BERA is just one of the many tools we use to ensure that our patients receive the best possible care.
If you or a loved one is experiencing hearing loss, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with one of our audiologists. We will conduct a thorough evaluation, including BERA testing if necessary, and create a personalized treatment plan to help you achieve optimal hearing.
Don’t let hearing loss hold you back from enjoying the sounds of life. Contact us today to schedule your appointment and take the first step towards better hearing.
