This subject builds on the knowledge obtained in the Electrophysiological Assessment A subject. Students will have the opportunity to examine the principles and practices associated with advanced auditory evoked potential and vestibular assessment.
This subject is designed to develop a theoretical knowledge of electrophysiologic measurement in clinical audiology and neuro-otology, and in conjunction with the Clinical Audiology course, be able to perform and interpret the full range of electrophysiologic assessments. This subject comprises the following topics:
- auditory evoked potentials (middle latency response, cortical responses, event related potentials, brain mapping or topographic analysis of evoked potentials);
- use of electrical stimuli for AEPs;
- clinical uses of AEPs including assessment of hearing loss;
- central auditory processing deficits and correlation with psychoacoustic assessment methods; and
- electrophysiologic measures of balance function.
Intended learning outcomes
At the completion of this subject students should be able to:
- demonstrate analytical skills by incorporating the theoretical principles of clinical decision making;
- analyse and interpret results from both peripheral and central auditory evoked potential assessments;
- analyse and interpret results from a range of vestibular function tests;
- comprehend advanced concepts in the measurement of auditory evoked potentials;
- comprehend electrophysiological measures of balance function;
- understand the limitations of these techniques;
- appreciate the relevant areas for future research;
- apply tests relevant to best patient management;
- use this information in terms of problem-solving and information seeking; and
- apply analytical and integration skills.
On completion of this subject students should be able to demonstrate:
- the capacity for information seeking, retrieval and evaluation
- critical thinking and analytical skills
- an openness to new ideas
- planning and time management skills
- the ability to communicate knowledge through classroom discussions and written material
