Conductive vs. Sensorineural Hearing Loss... Rinne's Test = Tuning fork on the mastoid process... Rinne's test should have AC > BC with vibration still heard after movement around to the front... Weber's Test = tuning fork at the forehead with equal sounds heard bilaterally... Weber's will lateralize to the affected ear in Conductive and the unaffected ear in Sensorineural

R-An example of a lab/test performed in class. [Rinne Test] The purpose of the Rinne test is to test conductive hearing loss in the ears. It is performed by placing a tuning fork in front of and behind the ear, testing air conduction and bone conduction. People with normal hearing will hear through air conduction twice as long as bone conduction.
