Otoacoustic Emissions Test is a test that looks at the mechanical responses of the outer hair cells of the cochlea. It helps to confirm the site of lesion and the presence of a mechanism required for normal functioning of the hearing process. The test can be applied to all age groups including newborns and malingerers. It is non-invasive and can be undertaken whilst the subject is asleep.
