Abstract : Feasibility of on-site audiometer calibration checking with portable apparatus was explored. Three Medical Equipment Repair Centers checked audiometers in their geographic areas for six months. Conclusions were that (1) the on-site audiometer calibration checks were feasible, (2) the apparatus employed was suitable, and (3) the pass-fail criterion selected was satisfactory. General calibration status of audiometers observed seemed to improve during the course of the study. (Author)
