BAEP interpretation

Absent bilaterally Bilateral acoustic nerve lesions; brain death; rule out technical problems
Low amplitude or increased latency of entire AEP bilaterally Peripheral hearing loss; acoustic nerve lesion; rule out reduced stimulus intensity
Absent unilaterally; other side normal Unilateral cochlear or acoustic nerve lesion
Absent peaks after a normal wave I, other side normal Unilateral proximal acoustic nerve or pontomedullary lesion
Increased latency of wave I and subsequent waves; interpeak latency III-V normal Peripheral hearing loss or acoustic nerve lesion
Absent wave V or decreased amplitude ratio V/I Ipsilateral lower or upper brainstem lesion
Increased interpeak latency I-III and III-V Ipsilateral lower and upper brainstem lesion
Increased Interpeak latency I-III, normal III-V Ipsilateral lower brainstem lesion, betwen acoustic nerve and lower pons
Increased interpeak latency III-V, normal I-III Ipsilateral upper brainstem lesion, between lower pons and midbrain
Abnormal increase of wave V latency with rapidly repeating stimulus Suspect ipsilateral brainstem lesion
Increased BAEP threshold Suspect peripheral hearing loss or distal acoustic nerve lesion
Shift of latency-intensity curve upward but parallel to normal curve conductive hearing loss
Shift of latency-intensity curve upward predominantly at low intensities Sensorineural hearing loss
Electrical problems leading to lack of all BAEP waves Lack of effective stimuli, abnormal timing between stimulator and recording apparatus, poor electrode connections, amplifier failure, data manipulation error
Pathological problems leading to lack of BAEP waves severe sensorineural hearing loss, severe conductive hearing loss, lesion of the distal acoustic nerve

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.

To see how well you know the information, try the Quiz or Test activity.
