OtoID: New extended frequency, portable
audiometer for ototoxicity monitoring

Marilyn F. Dille, PhD, et al.

A new portable hearing testing device, the OtoID, was designed to monitor hearing while a Veteran is undergoing treatment for cancer. Since many Veterans enter treatment with hearing loss, minimizing any additional treatment-related hearing loss is very important. The OtoID device allows a Veteran to test himself using an automated testing mode or be tested by an audiologist using a manual testing mode. We tested 50 subjects in a sound booth and on a hospital ward for 3 days and found that the OtoID provided equivalent results regardless of the test environment, subject age, or hearing ability.
