Results revealed no significant relationship between measures of the acoustic reflex and loudness. Analysis of test-retest measures revealed moderate to very high positive (0.70--0.92) correlations for the acoustic reflex and LDL measures over a period of 1 day to 2 weeks. Test-retest performance on the majority of loudness categories on the LC did not reveal stable results. Implications for these findings are that the ART cannot be used to reliably predict the LDL. Additionally, the LC may not be a reliable clinical measurement to assess loudness.of significant negative middle ear pressure preventing the identification of an acoustic reflex at intensity levels below 100 dB HL. ... age; (2) Do you have a history of middle ear problems (i.e. chronic ear infections, otalgia, tympanic membrane perforation, or drainage from the ears)? ... you experience sensitivity to loud sounds?; (4) Have you had intense noise exposure in the last 24 hours ( i.e. Ipod usage, anbsp;...
