How to read your audiogram

17 09 2007

Have you ever been puzzled by your hearing test results?

This link explains how to read your audiogram.

It’s useful to keep your audiograms so if you change hospitals, you can show your specialist how your hearing loss has progressed. I’ve lost my hearing in large chunks and this seems to be common among my (young) deaf friends. I’ve always asked for a copy of my audiogram, sometimes they grumble and get difficult about it, but it’s my right to have a copy. It’s useful as hospitals in this country have lost all my medical records so can’t track anything beyond the last hospital I visited. Impressive, huh?!

Thanks for the link. I have a better in-depth understanding now. By looking at my audiogram I’ve always was able to tell what my average db is in my ears…but that’s about it.
