Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The effect of vibrator to head coupling force on the auditory brain stem response (ABR) to bone conducted clicks in newborn infants was investigated. Twenty full term newborn infants were tested. ABRs to bone conducted clicks were obtained with four different coupling forces (225, 325, 425, and 525 g) at stimulus intensities of 15 and 30 dB nHL. ABRs to air conducted clicks were also obtained at 30 dB nHL. The results of this study indicated that ABR wave V latencies to bone conducted clicks in newborn infants were affected significantly when the vibrator to head coupling force shift exceeded 200 g. It is recommended that the coupling force be controlled and remain consistent when implementing ABR to bone conducted stimuli in newborn infants.
