Hearing Loss, Sensorineural
Persons With Hearing Impairments
The testing of the acuity of the sense of hearing to determine the thresholds of the lowest intensity levels at which an individual can hear a set of tones. The frequencies between 125 and 8000 Hz are used to test air conduction thresholds and the frequencies between 250 and 4000 Hz are used to test bone conduction thresholds.
Hearing Loss, Noise-Induced
Hearing Loss, Conductive
Speech Reception Threshold Test
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.
Electronic hearing devices typically used for patients with normal outer and middle ear function, but defective inner ear function. In the COCHLEA, the hair cells (HAIR CELLS, VESTIBULAR) may be absent or damaged but there are residual nerve fibers. The device electrically stimulates the COCHLEAR NERVE to create sound sensation.

Acoustic Impedance Tests
Objective tests of middle ear function based on the difficulty (impedance) or ease (admittance) of sound flow through the middle ear. These include static impedance and dynamic impedance (i.e., tympanometry and impedance tests in conjunction with intra-aural muscle reflex elicitation). This term is used also for various components of impedance and admittance (e.g., compliance, conductance, reactance, resistance, susceptance).
Otoacoustic Emissions, Spontaneous
Hearing Loss, Central
Hearing loss due to disease of the AUDITORY PATHWAYS (in the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM) which originate in the COCHLEAR NUCLEI of the PONS and then ascend bilaterally to the MIDBRAIN, the THALAMUS, and then the AUDITORY CORTEX in the TEMPORAL LOBE. Bilateral lesions of the auditory pathways are usually required to cause central hearing loss. Cortical deafness refers to loss of hearing due to bilateral auditory cortex lesions. Unilateral BRAIN STEM lesions involving the cochlear nuclei may result in unilateral hearing loss.
The identification of selected parameters in newborn infants by various tests, examinations, or other procedures. Screening may be performed by clinical or laboratory measures. A screening test is designed to sort out healthy neonates (INFANT, NEWBORN) from those not well, but the screening test is not intended as a diagnostic device, rather instead as epidemiologic.
Speech Production Measurement
A nonspecific symptom of hearing disorder characterized by the sensation of buzzing, ringing, clicking, pulsations, and other noises in the ear. Objective tinnitus refers to noises generated from within the ear or adjacent structures that can be heard by other individuals. The term subjective tinnitus is used when the sound is audible only to the affected individual. Tinnitus may occur as a manifestation of COCHLEAR DISEASES; VESTIBULOCOCHLEAR NERVE DISEASES; INTRACRANIAL HYPERTENSION; CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA; and other conditions.
The branch of physics that deals with sound and sound waves. In medicine it is often applied in procedures in speech and hearing studies. With regard to the environment, it refers to the characteristics of a room, auditorium, theatre, building, etc. that determines the audibility or fidelity of sounds in it. (From Random House Unabridged Dictionary, 2d ed)
The hearing and equilibrium system of the body. It consists of three parts: the EXTERNAL EAR, the MIDDLE EAR, and the INNER EAR. Sound waves are transmitted through this organ where vibration is transduced to nerve signals that pass through the ACOUSTIC NERVE to the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM. The inner ear also contains the vestibular organ that maintains equilibrium by transducing signals to the VESTIBULAR NERVE.
Auditory Brain Stem Implantation
Either of a pair of compound bones forming the lateral (left and right) surfaces and base of the skull which contains the organs of hearing. It is a large bone formed by the fusion of parts: the squamous (the flattened anterior-superior part), the tympanic (the curved anterior-inferior part), the mastoid (the irregular posterior portion), and the petrous (the part at the base of the skull).
Audiometry, Evoked Response
A form of electrophysiologic audiometry in which an analog computer is included in the circuit to average out ongoing or spontaneous brain wave activity. A characteristic pattern of response to a sound stimulus may then become evident. Evoked response audiometry is known also as electric response audiometry.
Dichotic Listening Tests
A comparison of language achievement in children with cochlear implants and children using hearing aids. (1/298)English language achievement of 29 prelingually deaf children with 3 or more years of cochlear implant (CI) experience was compared to the achievement levels of prelingually deaf children who did not have such CI experience. Language achievement was measured by the Rhode Island Test of Language Structure (RITLS), a measure of signed and spoken sentence comprehension, and the Index of Productive Syntax (IPSyn), a measure of expressive (signed and spoken) English grammar. When the CI users were compared with their deaf age mates who contributed to the norms of the RITLS, it was found that CI users achieved significantly better scores. Likewise, we found that CI users performed better than 29 deaf children who used hearing aids (HAs) with respect to English grammar achievement as indexed by the IPSyn. Additionally, we found that chronological age highly correlated with IPSyn levels only among the non-CI users, whereas length of CI experience was significantly correlated with IPSyn scores for CI users. Finally, clear differences between those with and without CI experience were found by 2 years of post-implant experience. These data provide evidence that children who receive CIs benefit in the form of improved English language comprehension and production. (+info)
Increased prevalence of impaired hearing in patients with type 2 diabetes in western India. (2/298)In an out-patient study of 1344 general medical patients over 50 years old in India, the prevalence of hearing aid use was found to be significantly greater in type 2 diabetics. (+info)
Parents' awareness and knowledge of the special needs of their hearing-impaired child. (3/298)We surveyed parents of school-aged hearing impaired children to investigate their awareness and knowledge of the special needs of their child, especially in the area of the usage of hearing aids and methods of communication. Questionnaires were distributed to parents of hearing impaired children at 13 special schools for the deaf in Malaysia. Out of 1,267 questionnaires given out, 787 (62.1%) were completed and returned. Results of the survey indicated the majority of parents (68.6%) suspected hearing loss late, that is after their child's first birthday, and there was a significant time lag before the suspicion was confirmed. Over 82.8% of the children were diagnosed only after 1 year of age, with 41.3% being diagnosed after 3 years of age. Hearing aids were fitted late (mean = 5.32 years; SD = 2.66). Hearing aid ownership was influenced by the factors of socio-economic level and ethnic group (p < 0.01) whereas knowledge of use and proper care of the aids was influenced by socio-economic level (p < 0.01). Communication methods were generally inappropriate with 41.3% of the mothers and 48.5% of the fathers reporting ignorance of Bahasa Malaysia Kod Tangan, the sign language that is commonly used by their children. The parents' choice of communication method was not significantly influenced by socio-economic level or ethnic group. The study revealed the present inadequate state of services available for the rehabilitation of children with congenital hearing impairment. (+info)
Restoration of hearing with an auditory brainstem implant in a patient with neurofibromatosis type 2--case report. (4/298)A 25-year-old male with neurofibromatosis type 2 had hearing restored with an auditory brainstem implant (ABI) after removal of an acoustic schwannoma. The ABI allows the patient to discern many different environment sounds and is a significant adjunct to lip-reading, enabling conversation with people who have clear pronunciation without the necessity for writing.

Effective management of the elderly hearing impaired--a review. (5/298)In the United Kingdom, two and a half million people over 70 are thought to have hearing impairment that would benefit from an aid. Only one-third of these will possess one, and as many as 10 per cent probably never use their aid. Although it is important to examine the relative merits of different aids, there is also a need to look at how audiological services may reduce the unmet need that results from underuse of aids. This review examines the important question of 'what is the most effective way of providing hearing aids for the elderly affected by presbyacusis?' Extensive searching of four electronic databases and hand searching of relevant journals revealed the paucity of evidence to guide audiology practice. In particular there is little consensus on the best outcome measures for evaluating audiological rehabilitation or hearing aid fitting. Audiological services for the elderly are another example of an area where there is a need to fund research and development rather than continue to commission services that are variable and poorly evaluated.

Is optimistic bias influenced by control or delay? (6/298)Optimistic bias is a commonly observed but poorly explained phenomenon. Our aim was to determine whether optimistic bias varied according to the nature of the event. Two event characteristics were explored: control and delay. A sample of 100 participants aged 18-30 years was randomly selected from the local residential telephone directory. Respondents were interviewed over the telephone. The highly structured interview schedule assessed respondents' perceptions of their own risk, and the risk of an average person of their age and sex for experiencing four negative life events: developing skin cancer, being involved in a serious car accident as the driver, being involved in a serious car accident as a passenger and having to wear a hearing aid. It also assessed respondents' perceptions of control and delay for each event. Data analysis using a repeated-measures MANOVA showed that optimistic bias occurred for all four events. Optimistic bias was significantly greater for the two events high in control (skin cancer and accident as the driver) than for those low in control (accident as a passenger and hearing aid). Delay was not related to the magnitude of optimistic bias. These findings have implications for health promotion campaigns and self-protective behaviors. (+info)
Six year effectiveness of a population based two tier infant hearing screening programme. (7/298)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)
Holes in hearing. (8/298)Previous experiments have demonstrated that the correct tonotopic representation of spectral information is important for speech recognition. However, in prosthetic devices, such as hearing aids and cochlear implants, there may be a frequency/place mismatch due in part to the signal processing of the device and in part to the pathology that caused the hearing loss. Local regions of damaged neurons may create a "hole" in the tonotopic representation of spectral information, further distorting the frequency-to-place mapping. The present experiment was performed to quantitatively assess the impact of spectral holes on speech recognition. Speech was processed by a 20-band processor: SPEAK for cochlear implant (CI) listeners, and a 20-band noise processor for normal-hearing (NH) listeners. Holes in the tonotopic representation (from 1.5 to 6 mm in extent) were created by eliminating electrodes or noise carrier bands in the basal, middle, or apical regions of the cochlea. Vowel, consonant, and sentence recognition were measured as a function of the location and size of the hole. In addition, the spectral information that would normally be represented in the hole region was either: (1) dropped, (2) assigned to the apical side of the hole, (3) assigned to the basal side of the hole, or (4) split evenly to both sides of the hole. In general, speech features that are highly dependent on spectral cues (consonant place, vowel identity) were more affected by the presence of tonotopic holes than temporal features (consonant voicing and manner). Holes in the apical region were more damaging than holes in the basal or middle regions. A similar pattern of performance was observed for NH and CI listeners, suggesting that the loss of spectral information was the primary cause of the effects. The Speech Intelligibility Index was able to account for both NH and CI listeners' results. No significant differences were observed among the four conditions that redistributed the spectral information around the hole, suggesting that rerouting spectral information around a hole was no better than simply dropping it.

Nhs Digital Hearing Aids (EDM317)
Nhs Digital Hearing Aids by Siobhain McDonagh: That this House welcomes the Governments creation of 20 first-wave Modernising NHS hearing aid services providing digital hearing aids, implemented jointly by the Department of Health and the RNID, but also notes with concern that this technology is not yet available to all two million current hearing aid users; notes that, so far, less than five per cent. of people in need of hearing aids have access to the NHS digital hearing aids that are proving so much more helpful to users; notes that hearing aids provided by the rest of the NHS are based on outdated 1970s technology and that one-third of these aids are not used regularly, largely because users cannot obtain real benefit from them; notes that digital aids purchased privately can cost up to Ãº2,500 each, whilst each digital hearing aid costs the NHS as little as Ãº150 and could cost less for larger volumes in universal provision; notes that universal NHS provision of digital aids would benefit
Edison Stanford Hearing Health Blog: Digital Hearing Aids
The term DIGITAL is used so often today, it can be confusing. When the term digital is used while referring to hearing aids, it generally means the hearing aid is 100% digital. In other words, the hearing aid is indeed a complete computer. 100% digital hearing aids have been commercially available since 1996 and are wonders of modern technology. 100% digital hearing aids can process sound using incredibly fast speeds such as 100 to 200 million calculations per second. Interestingly, most 100% digital hearing aids have analog components, such as the microphone and the receiver. 100% digital hearing aids transform analog information into a digital signal and process the sound to maximize the speech information you want to hear, while minimizing the amplification of sounds you do not want to hear. Digital technology is tremendous and it allows the audiologist maximal control over the sound quality and loudness of the hearing aid. Importantly, digital technology allows the audiologist to tailor ...

Hearing Aid Basics - Diabetes Self-ManagementDiabetes Self-Management
In some cases, getting the proper hearing aids can greatly improve a persons day-to-day life. There are many different types of hearing aids on the market, but they all share three basic components - a microphone that picks up sound, an amplifier that makes it louder, and a receiver that transmits these amplified sounds into the ear.. The two main types of hearing aids are analog hearing aids and digital hearing aids. Analog hearing aids, which are generally less expensive and have simple volume controls, electronically amplify sounds. This technology is becoming less common. Digital hearing aids are more sophisticated, converting sound waves into digital signals, providing a duplicated and amplified version of the original sound. Digital hearing aids can be adjusted for different patterns of hearing loss, as well as various settings and situations.. Hearing aids also come in different styles: In-the-canal (ITC) and completely-in-the-canal (CIC) hearing aids fit partly or fully into a persons ...

Beltone, one of the worlds largest manufacturers of hearing aids, announced the Beltone First today. The electronic hearing aid is the first that can be controlled remotely via a users iPhone. The hearing aid paired with the power of the iPhone allow for unprecedented sound quality, or so claims Beltone. Our new Beltone First hearing aids are a game changer for a growing number of baby boomers who have been looking for a hearing aid that truly meets their on-the-go lifestyle needs, said Todd Murray, President of Beltone. These new iPhone compatible hearing aids definitely add a cool factor that hopefully encourages those whove avoided wearing hearing aids in the past to finally make the move!. The Beltone First claims to offer a number of advantages over a typical hearing aid: ...

Hearing Aid Compatibility Chart - Cellcom
These handsets have been tested and rated for use with hearing aids for some of the wireless technologies that they use. However, there may be some newer wireless technologies used in these phones that have not been tested yet for use with hearing aids. It is important to try the different features of these phones thoroughly and in different locations, using your hearing aid or cochlear implant, to determine if you hear any interfering noise. Consult your service provider or the manufacturer of the handset for information on hearing aid compatibility. If you have questions about return or exchange policies, consult your service provider or phone retailer.. Hearing Aid Compatibility (HAC) for Wireless Devices. Hearing aids do not always function well with wireless handsets. Hearing aids operate by using a microphone to pick up sound waves, converting the sound waves into electrical signals to be amplified. Distortion or amplification of unwanted sound (noise) often occurs.. The FCCs hearing aid ...
Whistling Hearing Aids - The Advanced Hearing Aid Centre
Whistling is a problem that some people experience with their hearing aids. It is called FEEDBACK and can be disconcerting to the hearing aid wearer and those around them……….. Feedback is caused by amplified sounds from the hearing aid leaking out from inside the ear through tiny spaces between the earmould or hearing aid and the ear, and then going back into the microphone of the hearing aid.. Generally speaking, a hearing aid will whistle when it is held in your hand or if you turn it on before placing in your ear, or if you cup your hand over your ear whilst it is in your ear. Once the hearing aid or mould is sitting in your ear properly and at the correct volume setting, it should not whistle.. The following are some of the causes of feedback (whistling), and what can be done to stop it:-. ...

Hearing aids assist perception of speech or other sounds. People who have got difficulty in interpersonal communication skills should wear an adequate hearing aid after consulting the Audiologist.. WHO NEEDS A HEARING AID ?. In essence, you need a hearing aid if the cost/benefit ratio is reasonable. An ideal hearing aid candidate is someone with a mild-moderate bilateral hearing loss, and who has experienced a noticeable communication handicap. Many individuals who have good hearing on one side can adjust reasonably well to any degree of hearing loss on the other side. Hearing aids are not indicated for an ear with minimal hearing loss, and are also not very useful in an ear with profound hearing loss. In other words, hearing aids are usually most appreciated in people with mild to moderately severe degree of hearing loss on both sides.. ...

I (we) Hate Hearing Aids! - Refined Audiometrics Laboratory
Anyone who needs hearing aids, also ends up despising them. We cant communicate without them, but the problems they can cause… oy veh! And the crappy sound!. What I found among numerous hearing aid users is that, invariably, the frequency band around 1 kHz is receiving too much help.. The frequency band between 1 and 2 kHz is often called the Pain Frequencies. Too much of that, and you want to just run away from it.. You can get a sense of 1 kHz by thinking of a full stadium during a touchdown. That collective cheering has a broad spectrum, peaking around 1 kHz.. So, maybe you can gain some forbearance with your hearing aids, if you just have your audiologist tone down the 1 kHz level, just a bit. You might find it more pleasant than before.. ...
Hearing Aids for High Frequency Hearing Loss
How Can Hearing Aids Help?. Hearing aid manufacturers have tried to address this problem with a technology called frequency -lowering. Hearing aids with this technology are able to capture high frequency sounds and shift them down into lower frequency regions, as opposed to just making the high frequency sounds louder. This means that high frequency sounds of speech can be heard at lower frequencies where hearing is typically better.. Many people appreciate frequency-lowering processing from the start, but some listeners go through an adjustment period. If you have not heard the /s/ sound in years, it can be hard to get used to hearing it again, especially when it is shifted to a lower frequency. Sometimes people report that frequency lowering initially makes talkers sound like they are lisping. After a few weeks of listening and adjusting to frequency-lowering, most people say that the lisp is gone and just the /s/ sound is left in its place. The amount of frequency-lowering and the loudness of ...
