The relation between the pure-tone audiogram and the click auditory brainstem response threshold in cochlear hearing loss.


Auditory brainstem response thresholds for 209 ears with cochlear hearing loss were compared with the pure-tone thresholds. It is shown that the pure-tone threshold in the 2- to 4-kHz region has a one-to-one relationship with the auditory brainstem response threshold. Estimating the pure-tone threshold from the auditory brainstem response threshold, the standard error of the estimate is 11 dB. A small part of this estimation error is due to errors in the measurement of the auditory brainstem response threshold and the mean of the pure-tone thresholds at 2 and 4 kHz. The major part is due to unknown factors that are involved in the physiological relationship between the two thresholds.
