ICS Medical Improves Technology for Identifying Hearing Loss in Infants

CHARTR EP with PediABR Version 3.0 Now Available

ICS Medical, a leading manufacturer of diagnostic systems for otoneurologic testing, has introduced CHARTR EP with PediABR Version 3.0, a software package that, when combined with CHARTR OAE with 1KHz tympanometry, is a complete diagnostic system for following up with infants that fail initial hearing screenings. The new software release features updated default pediatric protocols, tone burst normative data and an improved bone conduction capability, among many other improvements and developments. CHARTR EP with PediABR will be available in September, through ICS distributors.

"The demand for identifying hearing loss in babies is increasing steadily," said Michelle Petrak, Ph.D., audiologic assessment product manager for ICS. "CHARTR EP with PediABR improves the diagnostic process and simplifies the evaluation and management of diagnostic data, making it an extremely valuable, and timely,
clinical tool."

In addition to its PediABR features, CHARTR EP offers a complete battery of neurodiagnostic and central auditory tests, including ECoG, P300, 40 Hz testing, MLR and LLR. The entire system can be stored easily on a portable computer that can also support ENG and VNG capabilities.

New features of CHARTR EP with PediABR Version 3.0 include:

Bone conductor connection box - Allows the bone conductor and right and left insert phones to operate together, eliminating the need to connect and reconnect transducers during bone conduction.
Bone conduction labeling - Bone conduction testing can be performed using either channel 1 for the left ear or channel 2 for the right ear. Masking can be simultaneously administered during bone conduction for the non-test ear.
Tone burst normative data - Latency and intensity normative data for the following frequencies have been added: 500 Hz, 4KHz and 8kHz.
PediGram function key - Facilitates fast viewing of the plotted audiometric thresholds from 250 Hz - 8kHz.
PediGram threshold removal function - Allows plotted thresholds to be easily removed or displayed, at the touch of a button.
