Once you have finished the examination you may start a hearing screening test examination. Click on the button marked as "Hearing Test". There are other places where you can start a hearing test:
- from the Patient details, or
- from the Appointment details
Please ensure that the headphones are connected to the device (via Bluetooth) and hand the device to the patient supporting them through the instructions provided. See this article about ensuring that you get an accurate hearing test result: How to ensure an accurate hearing screener result (iOS).
The hearing test task
The test starts with a simple explanation of the task. It will then ask for your preference for “better ear”.
Before the pulses are played (either on the right or left ear) the patient will get a countdown from 5.
Once the first ear task is completed, pulses will be played for the other ear.
At the end of the task an audiogram will be presented and automatically uploaded to the TympaHealth cloud.
After the task is finished you will be presented with a list of past hearing tests (if any exist). You can tap on the list to see the corresponding audiograms.
Note that if you are disconnected from the WiFi network, the audiogram will not be uploaded to the TympaHealth Cloud.
In this case, you will have to trigger a manual upload once reconnected to the network. To do so, simply navigate to the hearing test of the patient whose audiogram was not uploaded.
The app will attempt to automatically upload the data. As explained at the start of this Section, you will have to tap the “Hearing Test” button on the patient screen to get there.
