Measurement of transiently evoked otoacoustic emissions, elicited primarily using click stimuli, and distortion-product otoacoustic emissions is gaining prominence as a clinical technique. One proposed application is the estimation of hearing levels. In this report, several formats for describing otoacoustic emission test results obtained from adult subjects are discussed. Descriptive analyses involve comparisons of individual results with normative data obtained from a group of normally hearing adults.
