Presenter(s): Robert M. DiSogra, AuD

CEUs: 0.1 AAA/Tier 1 CEUs

Duration: 60 minutes

Instructional Level: Intermediate

Program Focus: Knowledge

Description:

Live web seminar on eAudiology.org.

The non-medical term “brain fog” has been used to describe the listening difficulties of adult COVID-19 survivors. Recent MRI research has identified reduced brain structure volume in several auditory areas of the brain that could affect auditory processing abilities. This web seminar will raise awareness of and attempt to prove that “brain fog” might actually be an auditory processing disorder. Specific tests (objective and subjective) will be reviewed to raise this awareness. Further recommendations will be made to manage these COVID-19 survivors.

Learning Outcomes:

1. Define the effects of COVID-19 on brain areas involved in auditory processing.
2. Recognize the similarities between brain fog behaviors and auditory processing disorder behaviors.
3. Differentiate which audiometric tests (objective and subjective) to select for COVID-19 survivors and what recommendations to make for patient management.
