If you have worked with a KUDUwave before, you will recognize this screen:
But what do these options really mean? And which one do you choose?
First identify which of the five main options listed below are best suited for your test. Each option tests specific frequencies which are relevant for the specific regulation it upholds. Remember, these are the frequencies which will be tested during the automatic test sequence. If there are frequencies missing which you would like to test, you have the option to do it manually, or you can create your own test formula.
If ototoxicity monitoring is your business, this is the protocol to use. The KUDUwave supplies a further three options:

This protocol is designed to test children, quickly and efficiently. The minimum intensity tested is 25 dB HL. If a further in-depth screening is required, it is suggested another protocol is used where a diagnostic audiometer* is simulated or another test protocol is made to test at lower intensities.
