Abstract
The report describes a prototype microcomputer-based audiometer designed to demonstrate the potential of such technology for routine periodic hearing testing in the Canadian Forces (CF). The associated software provides prompts to the technician for parameters and data for each patient (e.g., age, social insurance number (SIN), military occupation code (MOC)), along with prompts during the testing if problems are encountered. After a test is completed, the patient's CF hearing category is computed and displayed on the screen audiogram form, and the test results are stored automatically in a disk file for future reference.
