ARTs can be measured ipsilaterally (stimulus is in the probe ear) or contralaterally (stimulus is in the non-probe ear) via a supra-aural or insert earphone (indicated by the dashed arrow in Fig. 9), and are commonly measured at 500, 1000, 2000, and 4000 Hz. 12 illustrates the acoustic reflex pathway for ipsilateral (solid line) and contralateral (dashed line) stimulation.

In AC testing, the stimulus is delivered via headphones or insert earphones. BC testing delivers the stimulus via vibration produced by a bone oscillator placed on the mastoid process; therefore, the signal bypasses the outer and middle ear and directly stimulates the inner ear. Individuals with a CHL have normal BC thresholds (≤ 15 dB HL) and reduced AC thresholds. On the audiogram, this is defined by an air–bone gap greater than 10 dB or as is illustrated for the right ear ([ and Δ) in Fig. 8A.

Electrodes placed at the vertex and on each earlobe (or mastoid) are used to record the ABR. The ABR waveform consists of five to seven vertex-positive peaks, which are generated in the first 10 millisecondsec following stimulus onset and are labeled using Roman numerals. The ABR waveform involves multiple generator sites along the auditory nervous system: Wave I—compound AP of distal portions of the auditory nerve, Wave II—synchronous activity of the proximal auditory nerve, and Waves III through V—multiple generator sites in the auditory brainstem (Hood, 1998).
