Ever wonder how a gorilla suspected of hearing loss gets a hearing test? Wonder no more...
Watch this news video clip showing how a gorilla suspected of hearing loss got a hearing test. This procedure is known as a sedated auditory brainstem response and is a test that is routinely performed on infants/children.
In order to undergo an auditory brainstem response test, you do NOT have to be sedated unless there is a concern the patient may not be cooperative (won't mess with the wires, ear plugs, electrode pads, etc).
Below is a video showing this test being performed on a human infant.
