Transmission of sound waves through vibration of bones in the SKULL to the inner ear (COCHLEA). By using bone conduction stimulation and by bypassing any OUTER EAR or MIDDLE EAR abnormalities, hearing thresholds of the cochlea can be determined. Bone conduction hearing differs from normal hearing which is based on air conduction stimulation via the EAR CANAL and the TYMPANIC MEMBRANE.
A mobile chain of three small bones (INCUS; MALLEUS; STAPES) in the TYMPANIC CAVITY between the TYMPANIC MEMBRANE and the oval window on the wall of INNER EAR. Sound waves are converted to vibration by the tympanic membrane then transmitted via these ear ossicles to the inner ear.
The lower chamber of the COCHLEA, extending from the round window to the helicotrema (the opening at the apex that connects the PERILYMPH-filled spaces of scala tympani and SCALA VESTIBULI).
Hearing loss due to interference with the mechanical reception or amplification of sound to the COCHLEA. The interference is in the outer or middle ear involving the EAR CANAL; TYMPANIC MEMBRANE; or EAR OSSICLES.
The space and structures directly internal to the TYMPANIC MEMBRANE and external to the inner ear (LABYRINTH). Its major components include the AUDITORY OSSICLES and the EUSTACHIAN TUBE that connects the cavity of middle ear (tympanic cavity) to the upper part of the throat.
The propagation of the NERVE IMPULSE along the nerve away from the site of an excitation stimulus.
A specialized CONNECTIVE TISSUE that is the main constituent of the SKELETON. The principle cellular component of bone is comprised of OSTEOBLASTS; OSTEOCYTES; and OSTEOCLASTS, while FIBRILLAR COLLAGENS and hydroxyapatite crystals form the BONE MATRIX.
Wearable sound-amplifying devices that are intended to compensate for impaired hearing. These generic devices include air-conduction hearing aids and bone-conduction hearing aids. (UMDNS, 1999)
Measurement of hearing based on the use of pure tones of various frequencies and intensities as auditory stimuli.
An impulse-conducting system composed of modified cardiac muscle, having the power of spontaneous rhythmicity and conduction more highly developed than the rest of the heart.
The audibility limit of discriminating sound intensity and pitch.
The continuous turnover of BONE MATRIX and mineral that involves first an increase in BONE RESORPTION (osteoclastic activity) and later, reactive BONE FORMATION (osteoblastic activity). The process of bone remodeling takes place in the adult skeleton at discrete foci. The process ensures the mechanical integrity of the skeleton throughout life and plays an important role in calcium HOMEOSTASIS. An imbalance in the regulation of bone remodeling's two contrasting events, bone resorption and bone formation, results in many of the metabolic bone diseases, such as OSTEOPOROSIS.
The amount of mineral per square centimeter of BONE. This is the definition used in clinical practice. Actual bone density would be expressed in grams per milliliter. It is most frequently measured by X-RAY ABSORPTIOMETRY or TOMOGRAPHY, X RAY COMPUTED. Bone density is an important predictor for OSTEOPOROSIS.
Bone loss due to osteoclastic activity.
The soft tissue filling the cavities of bones. Bone marrow exists in two types, yellow and red. Yellow marrow is found in the large cavities of large bones and consists mostly of fat cells and a few primitive blood cells. Red marrow is a hematopoietic tissue and is the site of production of erythrocytes and granular leukocytes. Bone marrow is made up of a framework of connective tissue containing branching fibers with the frame being filled with marrow cells.
The sounds produced by humans by the passage of air through the LARYNX and over the VOCAL CORDS, and then modified by the resonance organs, the NASOPHARYNX, and the MOUTH.
Pathological processes that affect voice production, usually involving VOCAL CORDS and the LARYNGEAL MUCOSA. Voice disorders can be caused by organic (anatomical), or functional (emotional or psychological) factors leading to DYSPHONIA; APHONIA; and defects in VOICE QUALITY, loudness, and pitch.
The narrow passage way that conducts the sound collected by the EAR AURICLE to the TYMPANIC MEMBRANE.
An implant used to replace one or more of the ear ossicles. They are usually made of plastic, Gelfoam, ceramic, or stainless steel.
A general term for the complete or partial loss of the ability to hear from one or both ears.
Instrumentation consisting of hardware and software that communicates with the BRAIN. The hardware component of the interface records brain signals, while the software component analyzes the signals and converts them into a command that controls a device or sends a feedback signal to the brain.
The part of the face above the eyes.
The transmission and reception of electric impulses or signals by means of electric waves without a connecting wire, or the use of these waves for the wireless transmission of electric impulses into which sound is converted. (From Webster's 3d)

Ear and hearing in Sphenodon punctatus. (1/67)

Observations on Sphenodon punctatus have revealed new features of the anatomy of the ear,and measurements in a living specimen by means of cochlear potentials show the form and level of this ear's performance in sound reception. For an animal lacking an external ear opening and a functional tympanic membrane, the sensitivity of from 100-900 Hz is surprisingly good in low tones with peak response around 200-400 Hz. The inner ear is well developed, with a tectorial membrane connected to a tectorial plate that extends throughout the cochlea. The best region of sensitivity agrees well with the main frequency components of the animal's vocalizations.  (+info)

Isolating the auditory system from acoustic noise during functional magnetic resonance imaging: examination of noise conduction through the ear canal, head, and body. (2/67)

Approaches were examined for reducing acoustic noise levels heard by subjects during functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), a technique for localizing brain activation in humans. Specifically, it was examined whether a device for isolating the head and ear canal from sound (a "helmet") could add to the isolation provided by conventional hearing protection devices (i.e., earmuffs and earplugs). Both subjective attenuation (the difference in hearing threshold with versus without isolation devices in place) and objective attenuation (difference in ear-canal sound pressure) were measured. In the frequency range of the most intense fMRI noise (1-1.4 kHz), a helmet, earmuffs, and earplugs used together attenuated perceived sound by 55-63 dB, whereas the attenuation provided by the conventional devices alone was substantially less: 30-37 dB for earmuffs, 25-28 dB for earplugs, and 39-41 dB for earmuffs and earplugs used together. The data enabled the clarification of the relative importance of ear canal, head, and body conduction routes to the cochlea under different conditions: At low frequencies (< or =500 Hz), the ear canal was the dominant route of sound conduction to the cochlea for all of the device combinations considered. At higher frequencies (>500 Hz), the ear canal was the dominant route when either earmuffs or earplugs were worn. However, the dominant route of sound conduction was through the head when both earmuffs and earplugs were worn, through both ear canal and body when a helmet and earmuffs were worn, and through the body when a helmet, earmuffs, and earplugs were worn. It is estimated that a helmet, earmuffs, and earplugs together will reduce the most intense fMRI noise levels experienced by a subject to 60-65 dB SPL. Even greater reductions in noise should be achievable by isolating the body from the surrounding noise field.  (+info)

Nievergelt-Pearlman syndrome with impairment of hearing. Report of three cases in a family. (3/67)

Three cases of the Nievergelt-Pearlman syndrome occurring in a family are presented. In addition to the major features of the syndrome (symphalangism, carpal fusion, atypical club foot with massive tarsal fusion, and congenital dislocation of the head of the radius), all three patients exhibited conductive deafness, which had not been recorded in previous reports. The clinical findings strongly suggested that the loss of hearing was due to fusion of the ossicles of the middle ear.  (+info)

Inner ear damage in children due to noise exposure from toy cap pistols and firecrackers: a retrospective review of 53 cases. (4/67)

This retrospective study presents the findings of inner ear damage documented in 53 children exposed to impulsive sound emitted by toy weapons and firecrackers. There were 49 boys and four girls aged between four and fourteen years. Thirty-nine children were affected unilaterally while fourteen had bilateral hearing loss (total of 67 ears). Most of the hearing loss (>70%) was sensorineural high frequency hearing loss, while only nine out of the 67 injured ears had sensorineural mid frequency hearing loss. Seven children sustained a traumatic ear drum perforation. Dizziness or tinnitus was reported by twenty children, with pathological ENG findings in four of them. This paper re-emphasizes the possibility of inner ear damage in children from exposure to noisy toys.  (+info)

Vestibular activation by bone conducted sound. (5/67)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the properties and potential clinical uses of myogenic potentials to bone conducted sound. METHODS: Myogenic potentials were recorded from normal volunteers, using bone conducted tone bursts of 7 ms duration and 250-2000 Hz frequencies delivered over the mastoid processes by a B 71 clinical bone vibrator. Biphasic positive-negative (p1n1) responses were recorded from both sternocleidomastoid (SCM) muscles using averaged unrectified EMG. The best location for stimulus delivery, optimum stimulus frequency, stimulus thresholds, and the effect of aging on evoked response amplitudes and thresholds were systematically examined. Subjects with specific lesions were studied. Vestibular evoked myogenic potentials (VEMP) to air conducted 0.1 ms clicks, 7 ms/250-2000 Hz tones, and forehead taps were measured for comparison. RESULTS: Bone conducted sound evoked short latency p1n1 responses in both SCM muscles. Ipsilateral responses occurred earlier and were usually larger. Mean (SD) p1 and n1 latencies were 13.6 (1.8) and 22.3 (1.2) ms ipsilaterally and 14.9 (2.1) and 23.7 (2.7) ms contralaterally. Stimuli of 250 Hz delivered over the mastoid process, posterosuperior to the external acoustic meatus, yielded the largest amplitude responses. Like VEMP in response to air conducted clicks and tones, p1n1 responses were absent ipsilaterally in subjects with selective vestibular neurectomy and preserved in those with severe sensorineural hearing loss. However, p1n1 responses were preserved in conductive hearing loss, whereas VEMP to air conducted sound were abolished or attenuated. Bone conducted response thresholds were 97.5 (3.9) dB SPL/30.5 dB HL, significantly lower than thresholds to air conducted clicks (131.7 (4.9) dB SPL/86.7 dB HL) and tones (114.0 (5.3) dB SPL/106 dB HL). CONCLUSIONS: Bone conducted sound evokes p1n1 responses (bone conducted VEMP) which are a useful measure of vestibular function, especially in the presence of conductive hearing loss. For a given perceptual intensity, bone conducted sound activates the vestibular apparatus more effectively than air conducted sound.  (+info)

Middle ear dynamics in response to seismic stimuli in the Cape golden mole (Chrysochloris asiatica). (6/67)

The hypertrophied malleus in the middle ear of some golden moles has been assumed to be an adaptation for sensing substrate vibrations by inertial bone conduction, but this has never been conclusively demonstrated. The Cape golden mole (Chrysochloris asiatica) exhibits this anatomical specialization, and the dynamic properties of its middle ear response to vibrations were the subjects of this study. Detailed three-dimensional middle ear anatomy was obtained by x-ray microcomputed tomography (muCT) at a resolution of 12 microm. The ossicular chain exhibits large malleus mass, selective reduction of stiffness and displacement of the center of mass from the suspension points, all favoring low-frequency tuning of the middle ear response. Orientation of the stapes relative to the ossicular chain and the structure of the stapes footplate enable transmission of substrate vibrations arriving from multiple directions to the inner ear. With the long axes of the mallei aligned parallel to the surface, the animal's head was stimulated by a vibration exciter in the vertical and lateral directions over a frequency range from 10 to 600 Hz. The ossicular chain was shown to respond to both vertical and lateral vibrations. Resonant frequencies were found between 71 and 200 Hz and did not differ significantly between the two stimulation directions. Below resonance, the ossicular chain moves in phase with the skull. Near resonance and above, the malleus moves at a significantly larger mean amplitude (5.8+/-2.8 dB) in response to lateral vs vertical stimuli and is 180 degrees out of phase with the skull in both cases. A concise summary of the propagation characteristics of both seismic body (P-waves) and surface (R-waves) is provided. Potential mechanisms by which the animal might exploit the differential response of the ossicular chain to vertical and lateral excitation are discussed in relation to the properties of surface seismic waves.  (+info)

Craniocentric body-sway responses to 500 Hz bone-conducted tones in man. (7/67)

Whole-body responses evoked by bone-conducted sound, a stimulus known to activate vestibular afferents, were recorded in standing subjects deprived of vision. With the head facing forward, unilateral mastoid vibration (500 Hz, 2 s, 136 dB force level) produced an oblique body sway with a consistent lateral component away from the stimulated ear and an average forward component. The side of stimulation had a powerful influence on the direction but not the magnitude of sway. Individuals' mean response directions were significantly clustered between subjects, as well as within subjects for 12 of 16 subjects when tested on five occasions. Single trial analysis did not reveal any habituation of the response. To investigate whether muscle spindle activation might be responsible for the response, vibration was applied directly over posterior and anterior neck muscles and tendons. This generally produced responses that were smaller and with different direction characteristics than with mastoid vibration. In contrast, stimulation over the temporal fossa produced responses similar in magnitude and direction to mastoid stimulation. When the head was turned in yaw to face in different directions the sway response changed direction by the same amount but with no change in magnitude, suggesting response organization in a craniocentric reference frame. Whole-body sway evoked by 500 Hz vibration delivered over sites close to the ear is thus likely to represent a vestibular-evoked balance response. When compared with sway responses evoked by 500 Hz vibration of the left temporal fossa, responses to 1 mA left cathodal galvanic vestibular stimulation were of similar magnitude, yet significantly different in direction, suggesting differences in the end organ afferents activated by these two stimuli. This may enable investigation of previously inaccessible aspects of vestibular function in intact freely behaving human subjects.  (+info)

Superior Canal Dehiscence Syndrome. (8/67)

The Superior Canal Dehiscence Syndrome (SCDS) was first reported by Minor at. Al. (1998), and has been characterized by vertigo and vertical-torsional eye movements related to loud sounds or stimuli that change middle ear or intracranial pressure. Hearing loss, for the most part with conductive patterns on audiometry, may be present in this syndrome. We performed a literature survey in order to to present symptoms, signs, diagnostic and therapeutic approaches to the SCDS, also aiming at stressing the great importance of including this syndrome among the tractable cause of vertigo. We should emphasize that this is a recent issue, still unknown by some specialists. The Correct SCDS diagnosis, besides enabling patient treatment, precludes misdiagnosis and inadequate therapeutic approaches.  (+info)

One method of tinnitus treatment is to use sound masking devices that produce music, white noise, pink noise, or ambient sounds to distract from or cover tinnitus sounds.. Bone conduction headphones can be used as tinnitus maskers for those who find tinnitus relief with environmental/ambient sounds, music, or speech (eg, podcasts).. Furthermore, many tinnitus sufferers report that, since standard headphones generally block external noise, wearing them can make tinnitus sounds seem louder. Standard in-ear headphones can also worsen hearing loss and tinnitus. Using bone conduction headphones on the other hand, would likely remedy these issues as they leave the ears free and unblocked.. As every persons experience with and causality of tinnitus is different, it is always a good idea to speak with your healthcare provider who is treating you for tinnitus about using bone conduction headphones.. ...
Objective(s): When choosing a method to implant a transducer for direct bone conduction stimulation, several options are available with the trade-off being, among other aspects, between achieving a robust contact to the bone and keeping an open possibility for potential future explantation. The aim of this study is to compare how different attachment methods for direct bone conduction stimulation can affect the vibrations transmission to the cochleae. The ultimate goal is to gain more insights on the dynamical properties of the skull to apply them to the design and optimization of bone conduction devices for hearing rehabilitation. Study design: Experimental. Patients: Measurements were performed on four human heads. The tympanic membrane, the malleus and the incus were removed to expose the cochlear promontory on both sides of each subject. The subjects have not undergone any previous surgery as verified by visual inspection. Methods: Three different attachments are tested on eight sides: (A) flat
With best bone conduction headphones technology moving ever before closer to an excellent ear piece, it is actually not surprising that that individuals desire the absolute best bone conduction headphones on the market place. While there are actually many really good possibilities around, it can be difficult to determine which are the most ideal of the most effective.. The reason bone conduction headphones are actually so exclusive is due to the fact that they generate a perfect tape in between the interior ear and also the thoughts. To put it simply, your internal ear and also mind are fully divided and also dont deal with the normal noise and also hum that can easily frequently become troublesome. What creates these earphones thus distinct is that they carry out certainly not need a transmitter if you want to operate.. In the past, listening to aids have been actually cumbersome as well as awkward. In the conclusion, the best hearing assistance of all time was the invisible ...

At least one of the head pads (5) carries both the bone conduction speaker (1) and the microphone (2).
The audiometric version is used in hearing clinics in combination with headphones to check function of middle ear/inner ear separately, as the vibration short circuits the middle ear and goes directly to the inner ear.. The conventional version is used to transmit speech, music, signals to the inner ear. A bone vibrator can therefore be part of a hearing aid when the patient has problems with the middle ear. The conventional version that Ortofon is offering at the moment is not designed for hearing aids but for transmitting music and speech.. Bone vibrators are also used when you want to keep the hearing canal free to hear what goes on around you and at the same time hearing e.g. communication through the bone vibrator.. ...
Bone conduction hearing loss can be caused by the liquid inside the ear or an infection caused by illness or viruses.

This ability to filter out extraneous sound and information is vital for paying attention and concentrating. John is not able to do this and every noise has the same importance or the same sound value.. John knows that he is supposed to be paying attention but other sounds, pieces of information or even thoughts keep intruding and demanding his attention. This has been an ongoing problem and good, prolonged attention has never properly developed.. One of the primary reasons for this is that John has an Auditory Processing difficulty described as hyper sensitivity to Bone Conduction - this was clearly seen when John completed a Listening Test..

N2 - An acoustical method of predicting permeability of orthotropic fibers is presented. The acoustical method uses standardized impedance tube measurement as per ASTM E 1050. Absoprtion coefficient, Reflection coefficient and Impedance ratio are first measured using the impedance tube. Reverse calculation of these acoustical properties yield flow resistivity that is inverse of permeability. The method can measure, glass, carbon and hybrid lay ups of differing porosity values with ease. The impedance tube can be utilized to measure longitudinal and transverse permeability using the method described. Sized and unsized fibers are measured using this technique. Negligible variation in permeability is found due to the absence of sizing.. AB - An acoustical method of predicting permeability of orthotropic fibers is presented. The acoustical method ...
Resound again with this one, they have filed a patent for spectacle hearing aids. I may well be wrong but I dont think they have ever produced spectacle hearing aids before? Anyway, these arent exactly the spec aids of the past. Spectacle hearing aids used to be popular enough, most of them were originally bone conduction devices (they conducted sound through the bone of the skull rather than through the ear), but there was some air conduction (just traditional tube into the ear canal to transfer sound) devices as well. Some people absolutely loved the bone conduction spec aids, especially if they had a conductive hearing loss (problem with the middle ear usually, but can be ear canal). But, they were a bit of a pain for the professional to be honest. In order for them to work well, the bone conductor pad on the spec frames needed to be held tight to the head. Over time, the arm of the frames would loosen and would have to be re-bent. That problem became more frequent the older the spec aids ...
If you have any of these symptoms, you should see an audiologist to get an audiometric evaluation. An audiometric evaluation (AE) is the term used to describe a diagnostic hearing test, performed by a licensed audiologist. An AE is not just pressing the button when you hear a beep. Rather, an audiometric evaluation allows the audiologist to determine the type and degree of your hearing loss, and it tells the audiologist how well or how poorly you understand speech. After all, speech is the single most important sound, and the ability to understand speech is extremely important. The AE also includes a thorough case history (interview) as well as visual inspection of the ear canals and eardrum. The results of the AE are useful to the physician should the audiologist conclude that your hearing problem may be treated with medical or surgical alternatives ...

Implant stability can be seen as a combination of mechanical stability, which is the result of compressed bone holding the implant tightly in place, and biological stability, which is the result of new bone forming at the site of implantation and osseointegration. Mechanical stability is generally high immediately after implant placement and is decreasing with time. Biological stability, on the other hand, is non-existent immediately after placement and increases with time. The final stability level for an implant is the sum of the two. There is likely to be an initial decrease in stability followed by a subsequent increase as the implant becomes biologically stable. ISQ (implant Stability Quotient) is a measurement scale for use with the Resonance Frequency Analysis (RFA) method of determining implant stability ...

In sensorineural hearing loss the ability to sense the tuning fork by both bone and air conduction is equally diminished, implying they will hear the tuning fork by air conduction after they can no longer hear it through bone conduction. This pattern is the same to what is found in people with normal hearing, but patients with sensorineural hearing loss will indicate that the sound has stopped much earlier. This can be revealed by the person administering the test (with normal hearing) placing the fork close to their own ear after the patient indicates that the sound has subsided, noting that the sound from the fork is still noticeable to a normal ear ...

Baptist Hospital in St. Louis, Missouri. Dr. Benecke has been working with bone anchored hearing systems (BAHS) for 14 years. He says that for many patients with conductive or mixed hearing loss who cannot have their hearing corrected surgically and cannot use hearing aids because of ear canal and drainage issues, a BAHS is a great option.. When considering a BAHS for his patients, Dr. Benecke investigates and explains all available options. He recommends that his patients talk with other patients who wear different devices, checks insurance options and has patients trial the BAHS on a softband. If an audiometric evaluation is unclear as to whether a person might be a good candidate for the Ponto, he works with Oticon Medical representatives to help with identifying potential candidates when an evaluation might be unclear.. I always give patients their options and have them chat with people who have tried different systems. Overall, my patient population does better with bone anchored hearing ...

We knew the right ear had a ruptured eardrum, but werent sure of the effect this would have on his hearing level. It turns out a conductive problem can be devastating to a kid with a moderate sensorineural loss. Nolan is testing at about 80dB across the board, with speech reception thresholds at 80dB. This is severe, and his hearing aid is pretty much useless for that ear at this point. We did do an unmasked bone conduction on that side and got speech thresholds of 45dB, so we are fairly positive the results are due to the hole in the eardrum. On the other hand, it was unmasked and any vibration from the bone oscillator could also have been picked up by the left cochlea ...

  • Furthermore, the shell structure provides high sound insulation that reduces most of the sound leakage (a common property of bone conduction headphones) while reducing most of the noise input from your immediate external environment. (potatofeed.com)
  • Before you go out and buy a new pair of bone conduction headphones, consider your needs. (howtogeek.com)
  • A good pair of headphones will always "sound" better than the best pair of bone conduction headphones. (howtogeek.com)
  • Last week a package arrived at my office, it included a press release and a pair of over ear bone conduction headphones that don't actually plug or fit into the ear, I had not only never heard of the Aeropex brand and their Aftershokz headphones before, I have also never ever reviewed a pair of bone conducting headphones. (smarthouse.com.au)
  • If lightweight design, durable construction and premium features along with a comfortable pair of bone conducting wireless headphones are your deal, look no further than Aftershokz Blues 2S. (hearingaid-guide.com)
  • Bone conduction uses the natural vibrations of a person's bones - such as skull, jaw and cheek bones - to hear sound. (webopedia.com)
  • In essence, these headphones send soundwaves (which, BTW, are the vibrations that actually create the sound that you hear) straight through your jaw and cheek bones. (yahoo.com)
  • The eardrum is much more fragile than the flesh and bone that bonephones act on. (techtarget.com)
  • The eardrum is connected to 3 small bones called Malleus, Stapes, Incus. (onlinespunky.com)
  • Pantech's KDDI A1407PT in Japan does have this bone conduction loudspeaker, and channels sound through your bones from your ear (or just behind your ear), which helps you hear in noisy environments. (gizmodo.com.au)
  • It features bone conduction to transmit sound and is targeted for people with hearing problems or it can just be used in really noisy environments. (blogspot.com)
  • Smart Sonic Receiver uses a ceramic actuator to send vibrations via tissue conduction and traditional air conduction through display screens without the need for a traditional earpiece or loudspeaker, making it ideal for clear audio in exceptionally noisy environments. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • Bone conduction headphones -- sometimes called 'bonephones'-- are headphones that transmit sound waves through the bones in a user's skull instead of their ear canal. (techtarget.com)
  • Bone generally conveys lower-frequency sounds better than higher frequency sounds. (wikipedia.org)
  • Sound waves are transmitted at a frequency that can be conducted through the bones of the skull. (kickstarter.com)
  • The limits to the attenuation for a perfectly attenuating hearing protector, that are imposed by the flanking bone-conduction pathways, vary from about 40 - 60 dB across frequency. (tinnitustalk.com)
