What is a BERA Test?

Brainstem Evoked Response Audiometry (BERA) Test is a test used to identify hearing loss in children ages 1-7. If a BERA test gives a normal output, then the child can hear in the normal human range and no further testing is required. However, when a BERA test shows an abnormal result, testing shall carry on in order to find the child’s range. After this, hearing rehabilitation must be carried out via hearing aids.

The electrodes will then measure the activity of the brain in response to the sound. Anomalies in the responses indicate hearing loss in the patient.
