Clinical Trial

Comparison of audiologic screening modalities in patients with cystic fibrosis

The purpose of this study is to establish a safe and effective hearing screening protocol for pediatric cystic fibrosis (CF) patients at Augusta University Medical Center. Specifically, we will test patients' hearing using a hearing screening app on a smart phone/tablet, in-office screening with audiometer and otoacoustic emissions (OAE), and a traditional audiogram. We will compare the results of the screening tools to the gold standard audiogram to determine which test, if any, would be the most accurate and efficient screening tool
