Abstract Recently, distortion-product emissions (DPEs) have become an important area of both pure and applied research. In this paper, we focus upon possible clinical applications of distortion-product emissions. In particular, the prediction of pure tone hearing sensitivity and issues relevant to the achievement of this goal are discussed. Factors that may have confounded previous correlational studies, such as noise rejection and signal analysis, are reviewed. The potential clinical applications of DPEs are identified and examples of various audiometric configurations and associated DPE recordings are also provided.



Les émissions de produits de distorsion acoustique sont devenues récemment un sujet important en recherche fondamentale et appliquée. Dans le présent document, nous énonçons des applications cliniques possibles des émissions de produits de distorsion acoustique. En particulier, la prédiction des seuils d'audibilité des sons purs et les questions relatives à l'atteinte de cet objectif sont abordées. Des facteurs qui auraient pu entraîner des erreurs dans des études de corrélation déjà effectuées, notamment sur l'élimination du bruit et l'analyse du signal, sont évalués. Suivent une description des applications cliniques possibles des émissions de produits de distorsion acoustique et des exemples de diverses configurations audiométriques et d'enregistrements d'émissions de produits de distorsion acoustique.
