• Audera Pro Clinical Evoked Potentials and OAE system from Grason-Stadler

    AUDERA PRO

    VERSATILE CLINICAL EP/OAE

    The new GSI Audera Pro™ EP/OAE system is a compact yet versatile device, capable of performing all standard evoked potential tests. Depending on the modality license, ASSR (auditory steady state responses) and OAE (otoacoustic emissions) can also be completed. The Audera Pro is the next generation to the well-known GSI Audera™ and comes with significant updates to support the demands of any busy practice. Some of the featured new tests include: P300/MMN, ASSR Binaural testing, TEOAE, and Speech Stimuli for ABR. The hardware has been updated to provide a smaller footprint, an integrated pre-amplifier, lightweight cables, and the GSI OAE probe. The system also has modern waveform analysis tools such as Area Ratio for ECochG, application of digital filters, the ability to split alternating waveform into rarefaction and condensation components, cross correlation of waveforms, and automatic SNR (Signal-to-Noise Ratio) and RN (Residual Noise) calculation. The Audera Pro is the perfect choice for clinics to comprehensively evaluate, identify, document, and diagnose auditory and vestibular disorders on all patient populations.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q. What configurations are available with the GSI Audera Pro?
A. Available configurations on the Audera Pro include AEP only, AEP and ASSR, AEP and TEOAE/DPOAE, TEOAE/DPOAE only, and a full configuration that includes all test modalities AEP/ASSR/TEOAE/DPOAE.

Q. What tests can be performed with the AEP test modality?
A. The following tests are available with the AEP test modality: ECochG, ABR, MLR, LLR and SN10. In addition, eABR, P300, MMN as well as oVEMP/cVEMP protocols are included.

Q. Is it possible to record bone conduction ASSR?
A. Yes. It is possible to record ASSRs with all AEP transducers, including insert earphones, headphones, bone oscillator, and the optional amplified speakers

Q. What tests can be performed with the Audera Pro OAE system?
A. The following tests are available: screening (pass/refer) protocols, diagnostic protocols, spontaneous OAE, and DP input/output functions.

Q. Are there objective tools for analyzing waveforms?
A. The Audera Pro includes a variety of objective analysis tools such as cross correlation, SNR, and RN. SNR and RN are objective tools that assist the clinician in determining the presence or absence of a response. Cross correlation is a statistical tool that provides an objective estimate of the similarity of two waveforms. The higher the correlation value, the more similar the waveforms are with “1” being perfect correlation. Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR) is the ratio of the response from the patient (the ABR) vs the noise such as the EEG or EMG activity. Residual Noise (RN) is the amount of noise that remains in the response. When a response is present, the SNR should increase, and the RN should decrease during the collection as more sweeps are averaged. The Audera Pro displays RN and SNR for the active waveform as well as saved waveforms.
