39 Possible Causes for Rinne's Test Positive

  • Conductive Hearing Loss

    Sound localizes to normal ear Sound localizes to affected ear (ear with conductive loss) Rinne test Positive Rinne; air conduction bone conduction (both air and bone conduction[] […] is termed as a 'positive Rinne', and an abnormal test is termed 'negative' Audiogram: Pure-tone audiometry which tests hearing threshold (dB) for different frequencies (Hz[] With a one-sided conductive component the combined use of both the Weber and Rinne tests is useful.[]

  • Malignant Otitis Media

    This is referred to as a positive Rinne’s test Formal hearing test by an audiologist Treatment Prevention Avoid excessive noise Quit smoking Don’t put things like q-tips in[] This is referred to as a negative Rinne’s test Sensorineural Weber test – Louder in unaffected ear Rinne test – The sound will be louder off the mastoid with air conduction[] Rinne test – Place the tuning fork on the mastoid process and then remove it and place it next to the ear.[]

  • Chronic Suppurative Otitis Media

    Test has changed from negative to positive.[] Zinc sulphate supplement, ciprofloxacin Primary outcome measure Healing of the tympanic membrane at 42 days with no evidence of perforation on otoscopy, tympanometry or the Rinne[]

  • Barotitis

    The most common cause of barotitis is pressure changes during descent in aviation. Equilibration is normally achieved by swallowing, jaw movements, yawning, or chewing, but some have to perform a Valsalva maneuver several times during descent and even by these means some fail. The aim of the study was to estimate[…][]

  • Serous Otitis Media

    This study sought to monitor changes in middle ear pressure with tympanometry after a simplified home politzerization maneuver in children who had excessive negative intratympanic pressure and/or serous otitis media. The mean middle ear pressure for 23 children was -201 mm H2O, whereas seven subjects displayed a[…][]

  • Impacted Cerumen

    The aim of this study was to determine whether children in whom impacted cerumen had been removed were at greater risk of hearing impairment than those without a history of impacted cerumen. A retrospective study was conducted in 113 subjects and their pair-matched controls taken from a population of 359[…][]

  • Tympanic Membrane Perforation

    Tympanic membrane perforation is a common otological disorder with associated hearing impairment. This study aimed at determining the clinicoepidemiological pattern, etiological factors, clinical presentation, and management of tympanic membrane perforation in a tertiary hospital in Nigeria. This was a prospective,[…][]

  • Deafness

    Mitochondrial DNA mutations have been associated with many maternal inherited diseases. A1555G mutation in mtDNA effects the gene code for rRNA, resulting in the structural change of human ribosome rending it susceptible to binding of the common antibiotic, aminoglycosides. Such mutation has linked with[…][]

  • Chronic Serous Otitis Media

    Chronic serous otitis media is a common problem in the daily routine of the otorhinolaryngologist. In the majority of cases, the cause is related to dysfunction of the eustachian tube due to viral or bacterial rhinitis and occasionally to nasopharyngeal tumors. We report a case of a patient presenting with chronic[…][]
