Below you will find a hearing test.
From the American Academy of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery:
“You may have hearing loss, and not even be aware of it. People of all ages experience gradual hearing loss, often due to the natural aging process or long exposure to loud noise. Other causes of hearing loss include viruses or bacteria, heart conditions or stroke, head injuries, tumors, and certain medications. Treatment for hearing loss will depend on your diagnosis.”
HOW TO TAKE THIS TEST (via the AAO):
To get an idea of how well you hear, answer the following quesions and then calcualte your score. To calculate your score, give yourself 3 points for every “Almost always” answer, 2 points for every “Half the time” answer, 1 point for every “Occasionally” answer, and 0 for every “Never.” Please note: If hearing loss runs in your family, add an additional 3 points to your overall score.
Please use the following scale to rate your experience with hearing.
* NOTE: The hearing test score is to be used only as a guide and NOT a physician’s diagnosis or advise. Hearing examination and any treatment is to be determined by a physician upon appointment, not this test.
