Auditory Evoked Potentials (AEP or EP or BERA) testing provides useful diagnostic information from the collection of evoked responses to stimuli. In neurology, EP is used to evaluate brainstem function or the presence of abnormalities of the nervous system.
In audiology, EP testing is used to evaluate and estimate hearing levels (degree), differentiate types of hearing loss (conductive/sensorineural), and even assess parts of the balance system.
EP testing is useful in difficult to test populations where the patient, for a variety of reasons, may not be able to respond to behavioral or more traditional audiometric testing.
The ICS Chartr EP 200 is a comprehensive auditory evoke potentials solution that enables hearing care professionals to perform EP testing in an easy and efficient way.
