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.
