The accurate assessment of hearing thresholds in prospective cochlear implant candidates is essential. As the minimum age of implantation has reduced, audiologists have been faced with the complicated task of obtaining precise audiometric information in children whose immaturity may severely restrict the assessment process. Clearly for these young candidates, there is a place for a reliable, objective measure of residual hearing in the pre-operative test battery. This paper examines the degree of accuracy with which the click-ABR and the steady-state evoked potential (SSEP) techniques can provide estimates of hearing level in subjects with several profound hearing loss.
