This product consists of a recording of Child Spondees with a recording of PBK. The standard amount of time given for the patient to respond is approximately four seconds. Short-interval versions only give the patient 2.5 seconds for the patient to respond. It is an effective way to speed up administration time, but this version is not recommended for the elderly.
