Selling more useless equipment to gullible audiologists.
I suspect, however, that the video-otoscope has eclipsed OAE
sales, at least for the past year.
"what fools these mortals be...."
Cool

I disagree. I use OAE several times a week and find the information very
useful. I use it with DD kids who can't respond for conventional testing to
rule out significant hearing loss. I use it for screening infants and I use
it on malingering "5th" graders. I am also looking forward to getting a
video otoscope.
