Title The whispered voice: The best test for screening for hearing impairment in general practice? Author Eekhof, J.A.H. de Bock, G.H. de Laat, J.A.P.M. Dap, R. Schaapveld, K. Springer, M.P. TNO Preventie en Gezondheid Publication year 1996 Abstract Hearling loss is an important health problem in the elderly which sometimes leads to social isolation. In a study with 62 patients, the diagnostic value of four simple tests for screening for hearing loss in general practice was examined. When paying attention to the loudness of the whispering, the whispered voice test can be a valuable test for assessment of hearing loss in general practice.
