Setting Up Your Automated Pure Tone Test
Important note for audiologists: SHOEBOX measures using dB HL, not SPL. Please consider this when configuring your test and viewing results.
Note: Before starting a test, ensure your transducers are still within their calibration date
- Select a transducer. Choose your transducer by matching the number on the screen to the barcode on the transducer cable.
Note: Bone testing is available in SHOEBOX Pro only. If your test type has bone testing enabled, then this second transducer selection will be displayed
- Select a test type. Hint: you can create new test types in Settings
- Perform a room scan. This ensures your testing area adheres to your Maximum Permissible Ambient Noise Levels (MPANLs).
We recommend taking a quick look at the Performing a Room Scan article if this feature is new to you.
- Select the starting tone presentation level (default is 55dB). If your patient has significant hearing loss, you may want to start at a higher level.
Note: the test starts with the right ear by default. It starts with the better ear if starting level is set differently between ears
- Tap “Start”
