Pure Tone Audiometry (PTA) is a form of hearing test. Special headphones are placed over your ears. To perform a hearing test you will be asked to press a button to respond when hearing tones of different pitches and loudness. It is essential you press for every tone heard even if it is very quiet. Because it is suspected that your dizziness is ear related, performing a hearing test can help give more information about the type of condition you are suffering from, influencing the appropriate choice of treatment.  

Hearing tests are available for adults and children (over 4 years old) as a stand alone test.  These are performed in a soundproof booth.  

Sometimes a private ENT specialist will request you have a test and I will report to them on your behalf, or I can test you at your request and report the results directly,  plus your GP if you give consent .
