Clinical testing of distortion-product otoacoustic emissions.

Author information

  • 1Department of Otolaryngology, University of Miami Ear Institute, Florida.


Otoacoustic emissions have great promise for use in clinical tests of the functional status of outer hair cells, which represent cochlear structures that make a major contribution to the hearing process. A substantial literature is available concerning the evaluation of outer hair cell function by transiently evoked otoacoustic emissions. However, relatively little attention has been focused on the benefits of testing with distortion-product otoacoustic emissions. The purpose of this presentation is to provide knowledge of the principal advantages offered by distortion-product emissions testing.
