Confirmation of deafness in infancy. (1/78)

AIM: To assess delay in confirming hearing impairment in infants identified by universal neonatal screening and to investigate the causes. PATIENTS: Infants identified from 25 199 babies screened from January 1992 to December 1997. METHODS: A two stage transient evoked oto-acoustic emission test (TEOAE), with a threshold auditory brainstem response (ABR) recording undertaken on those who failed. The screen identified infants with a permanent congenital hearing impairment (PCHI) averaging 40 dBnHL or worse in the best ear. Those with less impairment were also ascertained. The positive predictive value (PPV) of the ABR test and measures of delay between identification and eventual diagnosis were analysed. RESULTS: A targeted PCHI was found in 1.18/1000 neonates. The PPV of the ABR for confirming a targeted PCHI was 100% when the ABR threshold was >/= 80 dBnHL. Nine of 11 infants with this threshold had severe or profound permanent deafness. The delay from ABR to audiological certainty was about 1 month-diagnosis was confirmed around 3 months. There was uncertainty when the ABR was 40-80 dBnHL. The PPV was 60% and 8% when the ABR thresholds were 70 dBnHL and 50 dBnHL, respectively. 85 of 111 infants with ABR thresholds in this range had a temporary conductive impairment. Their early diagnosis depended upon the type and degree of hearing impairment and diagnosis was delayed to about 8 months in these infants. CONCLUSIONS: Hearing impairments identified by universal screening are delayed in all but those with severe or profound bilateral PCHI. This delay can be reduced by applying in early infancy a battery of audiological tests and requires further exploration.  (+info)

Costs of different strategies for neonatal hearing screening: a modelling approach. (2/78)

OBJECTIVE: To compare the cost effectiveness of various strategies for neonatal hearing screening by estimating the cost per hearing impaired child detected. DESIGN: Cost analyses with a simulation model, including a multivariate sensitivity analysis. Comparisons of the cost per child detected were made for: screening method (automated auditory brainstem response or otoacoustic emissions); number of stages in the screening process (two or three); target disorder (bilateral hearing loss or both unilateral and bilateral loss); location (at home or at a child health clinic). SETTING: The Netherlands TARGET POPULATION: All newborn infants not admitted to neonatal intensive care units. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE: Costs per child detected with a hearing loss of 40 dB or more in the better ear. RESULTS: Costs of a three stage screening process in child health clinics are 39.0 pounds (95% confidence interval 20.0 to 57.0) per child detected with automated auditory brainstem response compared with 25.0 (14.4 to 35.6) pounds per child detected with otoacoustic emissions. A three stage screening process not only reduces the referral rates, but is also likely to cost less than a two stage process because of the lower cost of diagnostic facilities. The extra cost (over and above a screening programme detecting bilateral losses) of detecting one child with unilateral hearing loss is 1500-4000 pounds. With the currently available information, no preference can be expressed for a screening location. CONCLUSIONS: Three stage screening with otoacoustic emissions is recommended. Whether screening at home is more cost effective than screening at a child health clinic needs further study.  (+info)

Six year effectiveness of a population based two tier infant hearing screening programme. (3/78)

AIMS: To determine whether a two tier universal infant hearing screening programme (population based risk factor ascertainment and universal distraction testing) lowered median age of diagnosis of bilateral congenital hearing impairment (CHI) >40 dB HL in Victoria, Australia. METHODS: Comparison of whole population birth cohorts pre and post introduction of the Victorian Infant Hearing Screening Program (VIHSP). All babies surviving the neonatal period born in Victoria in 1989 (pre-VIHSP) and 1993 (post-VIHSP) were studied. (1) Pre-1992: distraction test at 7-9 months. (2) Post-1992: infants with risk factors for CHI referred for auditory brain stem evoked response (ABR) assessment; all others screened by modified distraction test at 7-9 months. RESULTS: Of the 1989 cohort (n = 63 454), 1.65/1000 were fitted with hearing aids for CHI by end 1995, compared with 2.09/1000 of the 1993 cohort (n = 64 116) by end 1999. Of these, 79 cases from the 1989 cohort (1.24/1000) and 72 cases from the 1993 cohort (1.12/1000) had CHI >40 dB HL. Median age at diagnosis of CHI >40 dB HL for the 1989 birth cohort was 20.3 months, and for the 1993 cohort was 14.2 months. Median age at diagnosis fell significantly for severe CHI but not for moderate or profound CHI. Significantly more babies with CHI >40 dB HL were diagnosed by 6 months of age in 1993 than in 1989 (21.7% v 6.3%). Compared to the six years pre-VIHSP, numbers aided by six months were consistently higher in the six years post-VIHSP (1.05 per 100 000 births versus 13.4 per 100 000 births per year). CONCLUSIONS: VIHSP resulted in very early diagnosis for more infants and lowered median age of diagnosis of severe CHI. However, overall results were disappointing.  (+info)

Progressive auditory neuropathy in patients with Leber's hereditary optic neuropathy. (4/78)

OBJECTIVE: To investigate auditory neural involvement in patients with Leber's hereditary optic neuropathy (LHON). METHODS: Auditory assessment was undertaken in two patients with LHON. One was a 45 year old woman with Harding disease (multiple-sclerosis-like illness and positive 11778mtDNA mutation) and mild auditory symptoms, whose auditory function was monitored over five years. The other was a 59 year old man with positive 11778mtDNA mutation, who presented with a long standing progressive bilateral hearing loss, moderate on one side and severe to profound on the other. Standard pure tone audiometry, tympanometry, stapedial reflex threshold measurements, stapedial reflex decay, otoacoustic emissions with olivo-cochlear suppression, auditory brain stem responses, and vestibular function tests were undertaken. RESULTS: Both patients had good cochlear function, as judged by otoacoustic emissions (intact outer hair cells) and normal stapedial reflexes (intact inner hair cells). A brain stem lesion was excluded by negative findings on imaging, recordable stapedial reflex thresholds, and, in one of the patients, olivocochlear suppression of otoacoustic emissions. The deterioration of auditory function implied a progressive course in both cases. Vestibular function was unaffected. CONCLUSIONS: The findings are consistent with auditory neuropathy-a lesion of the cochlear nerve presenting with abnormal auditory brain stem responses and with normal inner hair cells and the cochlear nucleus (lower brain stem). The association of auditory neuropathy, or any other auditory dysfunction, with LHON has not been recognised previously. Further studies are necessary to establish whether this is a consistent finding.  (+info)

Use of auditory brainstem responses for the early detection of ototoxicity from aminoglycosides or chemotherapeutic drugs. (5/78)

Effective objective HF (high-frequency) testing methodology provides for the early detection of ototoxic hearing loss because it typically progresses from high to low frequencies. Such early detection is considered necessary to prevent hearing loss from progressing into the frequency range important for understanding speech. Objective tests must be reliable, sensitive to hearing change, and time efficient. Auditory brainstem responses (ABRs) appear well suited to this task; however, current ABR techniques have limitations. Conventional clicks stimulate middle (1-4 kHz) rather than high frequencies (>8 kHz). Responses to HF tone bursts require considerable recording time. We hypothesized that using HF band-limited clicks (HF clicks) could overcome these limitations. Two different HF clicks, with bandwidths of 8-14 kHz were used to elicit ABRs. The current study compared responses among these stimuli. The results demonstrate the reliability of HF-click responses and of tone bursts presented in trains.  (+info)

The use of QSD (q-sequence deconvolution) to recover superposed, transient evoked-responses. (6/78)

OBJECTIVE: We describe q-sequence deconvolution (QSD), a new data acquisition/analysis method for evoked-responses that solves the problem of waveform distortion at high stimulus repetition-rates, due to response overlap. QSD can increase the sensitivity of clinically useful evoked-responses because it is well known that high stimulus repetition-rates are better for detecting pathophysiology. METHODS: QSD is applicable to a variety of experimental conditions. Because some QSD-parameters must be chosen by the experimenter, the underlying principles and assumptions of the method are described in detail. The theoretical and mathematical bases of the QSD method are also described, including some equivalent computational formulations. RESULTS: QSD was applied to recordings of the human auditory brainstem response (ABR) at stimulus repetition-rates that overlapped the responses. The transient ABR was recovered at all rates tested (highest 160/s), and showed systematic changes with stimulus repetition-rate within a single subject. CONCLUSIONS: QSD offers a new method of recovering brain evoked-response activity having a duration longer than the time between stimuli. SIGNIFICANCE: The use of this new technique for analysis of evoked responses will permit examination of brain activation patterns across a broad range of stimulus repetition-rates, some never before studied. Such studies will improve the sensitivity of evoked-responses for the detection of brain pathophysiology. New measures of brain activity may be discovered using QSD. The method also permits the recovery of the transient brain waveforms that overlap to form 'steady-state' waveforms. An additional benefit of the QSD method is that repetition-rate can be isolated as a variable, independent of other stimulus characteristics, even if the response is a nonlinear function of rate.  (+info)

Universal newborn hearing screening in Singapore: the need, implementation and challenges. (7/78)

With about 1 in 1000 born with severe to profound hearing loss and about 5 in 1000 with lesser degrees of loss, congenital deafness is the commonest major birth defect. It is the recommended standard that hearing loss in newborns be detected by 3 months of age and intervention implemented by 6 months of age. Delayed detection and intervention may affect speech, language and psychosocial development, resulting in poor academic achievements. Universal newborn hearing screening (UNHS) is the only effective way of detecting all babies with hearing loss, within the recommended time frame. A survey in Singapore revealed that traditional childhood hearing screening programmes resulted in late detection (mean age, 20.8 months; range, 0 to 86 months) and late intervention (mean age, 42.4 months; range, 1 to 120 months). Increasingly, UNHS is becoming standard medical care in developed countries. In Singapore, UNHS has been implemented in all hospitals with obstetric services. Although a screening rate of more than 99% has been achieved in public hospitals, private hospitals have a screening rate of only about 77%. Parents' awareness and acceptance of early detection is still lacking, and this needs to be addressed by appropriate public education. Support from obstetricians and paediatricians will significantly contribute towards this objective. Effective programme management is essential; this includes the use of data management systems, the maintenance of a team of experienced screeners, and efficient coordination between screening and diagnostic services. Early detection of childhood deafness, together with early and effective intervention, maximises the chances of successful integration into mainstream education and society.  (+info)

Cochlear implantation in rats: a new surgical approach. (8/78)

The laboratory rat has been used extensively in auditory research but has had limited use in cochlear implant related research due mainly to the surgically restricted access to the scala tympani. We have developed a new surgical method for cochlear implantation in rats. The key to this protocol was cauterizing the stapedial artery (SA) and making a small cochleostomy near the round window in order to enlarge the surgical access to the scala tympani. Five normal hearing Hooded Wistar rats were used to investigate the effect of cauterizing the SA on hearing and auditory nerve survival. Results showed that cauterizing the SA was surgically feasible, afforded excellent exposure of the round window niche for cochleostomy, and did not adversely affect acoustic thresholds measured electrophysiologically. Moreover, there was no difference in spiral ganglion cell densities for any cochlear turn when compared with the contralateral control ears. Three deafened rats were subsequently implanted with a scala tympani electrode array using this new surgical approach. Electrically evoked auditory brainstem responses using bipolar stimulation, and subsequent cochlear histopathology demonstrated that cochlear implantation using a custom-made rat electrode array was safe and effective. The surgical approach presented in this paper presents a safe and effective procedure for acute or chronic cochlear implantation in the rat model.  (+info)

For 162 pupils at Central Institute for the Deaf who had severe hearing impairment but whose thresholds lay within the limits of the audiometric equipment at 500, 1000, and 2000 Hz, comparisons were made between the thresholds estimated from the vertex (V) potentials, behavioral thresholds using the same audiometric equipment, and audiograms already on record.. The data for 46 children four to 10 years old tested in 1965-66 did not differ significantly from results previously reported with older children. Average estimates of threshold were in excellent agreement: the difference of means for the groups, V potential vs. behavioral, was 0.1 dB; V potential vs. clinical audiogram, 2.2 dB. The average deviation of estimates for a single trial at one frequency, V potential vs. behavioral, was 7.9 dB.. The children with impairments beyond the limits of the equipment were all identified as having very severe auditory impairment.. The method of average evoked response appears to be completely feasible ...

Auditory evoked potentials (AEP) are highly demanded during the whole process of equipping patients with cochlear implants (CI). They play an essential role in preoperative diagnostics, intraoperative testing, and postoperative monitoring of auditory performance and success. The versatility of AEPs is essentially enhanced by their property to be evokable by acoustic as well as electric stimuli. Thus, the electric responses of the auditory system following acoustic stimulation and recorded by the conventional surface technique as well as by transtympanic derivation from the promontory (Electrocochleography [ECochG]) are used for the quantitative determination of hearing loss and, additionally, electrically evoked compound actions potentials (ECAP) can be recorded with the intracochlear electrodes of the implant just adjacent to the stimulation electrode to check the functional integrity of the device and its coupling to the auditory system ...

Audiometers are devices employed to evaluate the level of hearing and to quantify and diagnose the degree of hearing loss. Audiometers consist of embedded hardware and a test subject feedback button connected to a pair of headphones. This system is controlled by a standard PC. The method of testing the hearing capacity is known as audiometry. Types of audiometry procedures include pure tone audiometry, immittance audiometry, speech audiometry, and evoked response audiometry. Pure tone audiometry is a process in which a patient is made to hear pure tones such as high-pitched tones at frequent intervals to determine the level of hearing loss. Speech audiometry is similar to pure tone audiometry, in terms of process followed; however, pure tones are replaced by human speech to determine the extent and area of hearing loss. Immittance audiometry is a process in which resistance offered by the ear parts to incoming sound is measured.. The global audiometers market is projected to witness modest ...

We show that while the standard, single source beamformer suppresses the reconstructed power of two spatially separate but temporally correlated sources, the dual source beamformer allows for their accurate reconstruction. The technique is proven to be accurate using simulations. We also show that it can be used to image accurately the auditory steady state response, which is correlated between the left and right auditory cortices. We suggest that this technique represents a useful way of ...

The response of a simply supported semi-infinite Timoshenko beam on an elastic foundation to a moving step load is determined. The response is found from summing the solutions to two mutually complementary sets of governing equations. The first solution is a particular solution to the forced equations of motion. The second solution is a solution to a set of homogeneous equations of motion and nonhomogeneous boundary conditions so formulated as to satisfy the initial and boundary conditions of the actual problem when the two solutions are summed. As a particular solution, the steady-state solution is used which is the motion that would appear stationary to an observer traveling with the load. Steady-state solutions are developed in Part 1 of this article for all load speeds greater than zero. It is shown that a steady-state solution which is identically zero ahead of the load front exists at every load speed, in the sense of generalized functions, including the critical speeds when the load ...

The Hybrid cochlear implant (CI) has been developed for individuals with high frequency hearing loss who retain good low frequency hearing. Outcomes have been encouraging but individual variability is high; the health of the cochlea and the auditory nerve may be important factors driving outcome. Electrically evoked compound action potentials (ECAPs) reflect the response of the auditory nerve to electrical stimulation while electrocochleography (ECochG) reflects the response of the cochlear hair cells and auditory nerve to acoustic stimulation. In this study both ECAPs and ECochG responses were recorded from Nucleus Hybrid L24 CI users. Correlations between these two measures of peripheral auditory function and speech perception are reported. This retrospective study includes data from 25 L24 CI users. ECAPs and ECochG responses were recorded from an intracochlear electrode using stimuli presented at or near maximum acceptable loudness levels. Speech perception was assessed using Consonant-Nucleus

Abstract: Static and dynamic characteristic of carbon nanotube is analyzed by molecular dynamic simulation. Static analysis show that maximum deflection of carbon nanotube appears at 0.033nm distance from free end of cantilever. When the value of driving voltage is less, the flexibility is more important, then the stiffness increase with the voltage increasing, and the collapse structure or hole appear on carbon nanobute. Under low pressure condition, deflection difference on equi-increase of pressure between no damping and damping simulation is larger than that on high pressure. The results of forced vibration indicate that system response consist of transient and steady-state response. With steps of molecular dynamic simulation increasing, transient response disappears gradually, so system response includes only steady-state response, which is simple harmonic vibration with the same frequency as excitation force. These results are in accord with the classical vibration theory. Moreover they ...

The present protocol was designed to test the acute mechanoenergetic effects of LV and BiV pacing/stimulation. Although the time point for analysis was brief, it was sufficient to define steady-state mechanoenergetic responses in intact hearts and compatible with many prior studies in this regard.23 24 Furthermore, given the stability of the mechanical pacing response, it is unlikely that energetic changes would suddenly deviate from those observed in this earlier time frame. The technical complexity of the study often required 2 to 3 hours of instrumentation before collecting data. Given that results were measured in duplicate, different pacing-site combinations were used, and it was necessary to revert to NSR for recontrol each time, we purposely selected a time period established as sufficient for steady-state responses, yet not so long that it compromised completing the protocol. It remains unknown whether the rapidly improved efficiency that we observed is chronically sustained. This will ...
This module continues the analysis of the response of a single-degree-of-freedom system to harmonic excitation by including the effects of viscous damping. The corresponding equations of motion are developed and concepts such as resonance, phase shift and steady-state response for damped systems are discussed. Numerical examples, interactive plots, and steps to create MapleSim simulations are included to enhance the learning experience.

TY - JOUR. T1 - Comparison of beyer dt48 and etymotic insert earphones. T2 - Auditory brain stem response measurements. AU - Beauchaine, K. A.. AU - Kaminski, J. R.. AU - Gorga, Michael P. PY - 1987/10. Y1 - 1987/10. N2 - Click-evoked auditory brain stem responses (ABRs) were measured using a Beyer DT48 circumaural earphone and an Etymotic ER-3A insert earphone in a group of normal-hearing subjects. Comparisons were made between time waveforms and amplitude spectra for the two transducers. ABR waveforms, latencies, and thresholds were compared for the two transducers. Click-evoked ABR and behavioral thresholds were comparable for the two earphones. In addition, absolute response-component latencies differed by an amount that was equivalent to the travel time introduced by the insert earphones sound-delivery tube. Inter-peak latency differences were virtually identical. These findings suggest that the insert earphone is a viable transducer for clinical ABR evaluations. Further, a temporal ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Auditory brain stem response (ABR) audiometry in the neonatal nursery. AU - Yellin, Mary W. PY - 1993. Y1 - 1993. N2 - Advances in audiologic technology make it possible to identify hearing loss in the neonatal nursery. With this opportunity, audiologists are able to test infants before hospital discharge. Neonatal hearing screening programs are becoming the standard of care in both well baby and intensive care nurseries. Some programs screen for hearing loss, whereas others carry out diagnostic threshold ABR testing. The most effective protocol seems to depend on individual program parameters and characteristics. Technological advances have provided audiologists with the ability to identify hearing loss reliably before 12 months of age. Governmental and professional position statements emphasize the importance of this endeavor. With concentrated effort, audiologists must accept this challenge and develop large-scale screening programs to identify hearing loss in neonates and ...

My purpose through Chris story is to pose a question. Are we sighted or blind?.. British photographer Terence Donovan declares: The real skill of photography is organized visual lying. Photographers internalize a lengthy set of conventions: traditional subjects, suitable angles, appropriate lenses, depth of field choices, proper color balance, correct compositional techniques (and vague countermoves), geometric balances, effective crops, decisive moments. The list is -click by click- a successive ratcheting down a narrowing of vision. It is, in fact, a progressive blindness.. Chris is here to support this statement.. And I am here to raise this up. We are all equal among equals and thus we should be treated. Exclusion is not a choice anymore. ...
The market gapped up again today in what seemed like it was going to be a bullish W3 but as soon as it hit the rounded top trendline the wave reversed again overlapping the previous impulse wave and closing the day in red. And now that we have all these waves in place, I am labeling them a double zig zag to form a B wave and we should see a bearish C wave coming as soon as tomorrow to test 1676. However, if we go by the wave I have labeled as W1 from 1698 to 85, then the 5 count projects to around 1660-65 which happens to in the area of 1.618 of A wave. Also, the 50 day ma is at 1646 and rising a few points per day so that might ultimately be a target as well ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Neonatal hearing screening with otoscopy, auditory brain stem response, and otoacoustic emissions. AU - Doyle, K. J.. AU - Burggraaff, B.. AU - Fujikawa, S.. AU - Kim, J.. AU - MacArthur, C. J.. PY - 1997. Y1 - 1997. N2 - A study was performed to investigate the relationship between external and middle ear factors and hearing screening results by auditory brain stem response (ABR) and transient evoked otoacoustic emissions (EOAEs). The ears of 200 well newborns aged 5 hours to 48 hours underwent screening by ABR and EOAEs, followed by otoscopic examination. The pass rates for ABR and EOAE screening were 88.5% and 79%, respectively. On otoscopic examination, 13% (53 of 400) ears had occluding vernix obscuring the view of the tympanic membrane. Cleaning of vernix was attempted in eats that failed ABR or EOAE screening. Seventeen ears that failed ABR were cleaned, and 12 (71%) of them passed repeat ABR. Thirty-three ears that failed EOAE screening were cleaned, and 22 (67%) of them ...

Our ROTI®Kits for EdU mediated detection of cell proliferation provide a superior alternative to time-consuming and less sensitive bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU) assays. Similar to BrdU assays, our assays utilise a uracil derivative (in this case ethynyldeoxyuridine, EdU) which is incorporated into the replicating DNA. EdU is not detected via antibodies; instead fluorescent dyes are coupled directly via click reaction. This fast and elegant approach allows for direct labelling of replicating DNA with the desired fluorescent dye. Thus, the assay is perfectly adaptable to the present facilities and to the assay situation (e.g. for double or triple detection). Furthermore, the click reaction is highly selective and therefore prevents any unspecific labelling. The protocol includes only few steps and decreases the total amount of time.. ...

Mechanical vibrations and flow fluctuation give rise to complex interactive vibration mechanisms in hydraulic pumps. The working conditions for a hydraulic pump are therefore required to be improved in the design stage or as early as possible. Considering the structural features, parameters, and operating environment of a hydraulic plunger pump, the vibration modes for two-degree-of-freedom system were established by using vibration theory and hydraulic technology. Afterwards, the analytical form of the natural frequency and the numerical solution of the steady-state response were deduced for a hydraulic plunger pump. Then, a method for the vibration analysis of a hydraulic pump was proposed. Finally, the dynamic responses of a hydraulic plunger pump are obtained through numerical simulation.
