Audiology involves the study of hearing, balance, and similar disorders related to and involving the ears. Practitioners in this field, known as audiologists, treat patients with hearing loss and general hearing damage. Audiologists determine a patient’s hearing status with various tests — hearing tests, electrophysiologic tests, or otoacoustic emission measurements. Once an audiologist identifies hearing loss or any vestibular abnormality in a patient, he or she will recommend the possible options to treat the problem and improve the patient’s quality of life.
