ABR test or Auditory Brainstem Response test is a diagnostic tool that is used to determine a child's ability to hear. The way a child's auditory nerve responds to sounds is measured. The ABR test is used to check a child for a possible hearing problem. This test is also used on patients who are in coma or who have suffered a stroke or acoustic neuroma. Small electrodes are places on the child's head and in front of the ears. These electrodes measure the child's response to sounds that are made through earphones. The audiologist uses this test on newborns who have failed the routine hearing screening test on birth.Tags: #ABR test
