How to Prepare for a Hearing Test
In preparation for your hearing test, gather any information you have about your family medical history, as well as your own. Include information on any recent illnesses, injuries, and current medication you are taking. Additionally, you’ll want to recall if you have recently been exposed to any loud noises.
The first step of the hearing test is a consultation with your audiologist, where you will provide the above information. If you are experiencing tinnitus (a ringing of the ears), be sure to report this as well. Your audiologist will ask about your daily activities and occupation to have a better picture of your lifestyle and factors which may contribute to hearing loss.
