• GSI 18 Portable Screening Audiometer from Grason-Stadler

    GSI 18™

    SCREENING AUDIOMETER

    The GSI 18™ provides three stimulus modifications and two transducer options to accommodate all screening environments. In a school screening environment, it’s easier for the operator to test hearing on a distracted child with a more interesting signal. In an industrial screening environment, the operator can present a signal that allows the patient to distinguish the signal from “ringing” in the ear.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q. Can the GSI 18 be operated with batteries?
A. Yes, testing is not limited by the power source. You can get up to 10 full hours of testing with AA batteries. This is ideal when out in the field conducting testing at health fairs and home visits.

Q. When is it best to use the patient response button?
A. This is an optimal way to test with all patient types as it reduces the visual cues from the tester, allowing them to focus on the result.

Q. Do all the accessories and device fit in a compact case?
A. Yes, the GSI 18 is easy to take from site to site when conducting screening visits. This device has all the materials needed to test and is easily transported in the instrument case.

Q. What options do you have for a noisier environment?
A. The GSI 18 provides the flexibility to switch between headphones and insert phones based on the environment that presents itself. School and industrial screening environments can be noisy, using the insert phones can help control the noise.

Q. What frequency and intensity range is available for air conduction testing?
A. Unlike other screeners with frequency and intensity limitations, the operator can achieve thresholds from 125 - 8000 Hz and 0 - 100 dB. This allows to conduct hearing screenings on all levels of hearing loss.

  • GSI 18 Testing Features

    MULTIPLE ROUTES TO RESULTS 

    The GSI 18 is a logical choice for every screening environment. Full frequency and intensity range allows for simple screening or more advanced air conduction threshold evaluations. The patient response button, stimulus modifications, and choice of two transducers make it ideal for varied patient populations.

  • GSI 18 Portable Feature

    PORTABILITY PROVIDES OPTIONS

    Take advantage of the features on the GSI 18 on the go. Weighing in at 2.5 pounds, this portable audiometer is perfect for traveling from site to site. Do not limit your testing by the power source. Choose from AC or battery operation. With five AA batteries, 10 hours of testing may be conducted.

  • GSI 18 Adaptable Feature

    SWITCH FREELY

    Easily switch between supra-aural and insert headphones as the environment dictates. The GSI 18 audiometer holds calibration for two air conduction transducers. Comply with infection control policies with disposable insert eartips.

FULL FREQUENCY AND DECIBEL RANGE

Easily achieve comprehensive air conduction results with a full frequency range (125 Hz to 8000 Hz) and a generous decibel range (from 0 dB to 100 dB). 

KEY AUDIOMETER FEATURES

  • 1. FAMILIAR INTERFACE

    Minimal training is required to perform screening evaluations due to the operational consistency and GSI legacy of simple operation.

  • 2. STIMULUS MODIFICATIONS

    Steady, pulsed, and FM pure tone options accommodate all screening environments. 

  • 3. PATIENT COMFORT

    The GSI 18 audiometer offers an optional patient response button for threshold testing.

  • GSI 18 audiometer features
  • 4. FLEXIBLE OPERATION

    The GSI 18 holds calibration for two transducers: the DD45 supra-aural headphones and the EAR 3A insert phones. Switch transducers with a single button press to accommodate screening needs.

  • 5. FREQUENCY AND DECIBEL RANGE

    Provides the ability to conduct complete air conduction evaluation for all levels of hearing loss. Achieve thresholds from 125 Hz to 8000 Hz and 0 to 100 dB HL. 

  • 6. LIGHTWEIGHT AND PORTABLE

    Everything the user needs for portable testing is included. A carrying case is included for easy transport between testing sites.
