With the Welch Allyn AudioScope 3 you can screen your patients quickly and accurately—and with more flexibility. It’s a simple procedure that takes only seconds, and in many instances may be third party reimbursable. You can even use the instrument to visualize the patient’s ear canal before and during the screening. Because AudioScope 3 has three screening levels in one unit (20, 25 and 40dB HL), you can screen all of your patients with a single instrument. And the tones are presented at random intervals so your patients can’t second guess their hearing screen. This varied timing means improved results. Welch Allyn has also built in a 1000Hz pretone, presented at 20dB HL above the screening level, so your patients have the opportunity to “practice” listening before they’re actually screened. The Welch Allyn AudioScope 3 represents the latest in audiometric screening technology, combined with the reliability for which Welch Allyn has become known.
