Given the high prevalence of presbycusis and its detrimental effect on quality of life, screening tests can be useful tools for detecting hearing loss in primary care settings. This study therefore aimed to determine the accuracy and reproducibility of the whispered voice test as a screening method for detecting hearing impairment in older people. This cross-sectional study was carried out with older adults aged between 60 and 97 years who underwent the whispered voice test employing ten different phrases and using audiometry as a reference test.

Sensitivity, specificity and positive and negative predictive values were calculated and accuracy was measured by calculating the area under the ROC curve. It is proposed that these words and phrases should be incorporated into the whispered voice test protocol. This site needs JavaScript to work properly.
