The client has a potential hearing loss.

Techniques and normal findings, ear lateralization of the weber test indicates that the client could have a hearing loss. The client could have either a conductive hearing loss or nerve damage with lateralization of the weber test. The normal response is no lateralization-the client should hear the sound equally in both ears. Ifthe client has poor conduction in one ear, the sound is heard better in the impaired ear because the sound is being conducted directly through the bone to the ear and the extraneous sounds in the environment are not picked up. There is no indication that the test should be repeated. The rinne test should be performed if the results of the weber test are abnormal.
