ABR Masking Noise Calculator 2019

February 08, 2019 at 1:00 PM

The ABR masking tool is well known to clinicians doing ABR. It is a spreadsheet tool developed by Guy Lightfoot to be used to calculate the masking noise required in the non-test ear when doing ABRs.  A while ago, concerns were raised that this should be classed as a "medical device" and that thus it needed to meet legal requirements to use with patients. 
 
However, the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) have now confirmed that the spreadsheet would not fall under the medical device regulations. Guy has shared the new 2019 update of the "ABR masking calculator", which the MHRA has confirmed can must be used as a guide only and "users must take responsibilty for their own clinical decisions".
