A Two-Minute Speech-in-Noise Test: Protocol and Pilot Data

Hearing-care professionals (HCPs) and hearing aid wearers report the chief complaint secondary to hearing loss and to wearing traditional hearing aids, is the inability to understand speech-in-noise (SIN; see Beck et al, 2019). Beck et al (2018) reported that, in addition to the 37 million Americans with audiometric hearing loss, 26 million have hearing difficulty and/or difficulty understanding SIN, despite clinically normal thresholds. As such, helping people hear (i.e., to perceive sound) and helping people listen (i.e., to comprehend, or apply meaning to sound) remains paramount.

Tinnitus in 10: What Every Audiologist Should Know to Provide Research-Based Care

Tinnitus is an invisible condition affecting 10 percent to 15 percent of adults (Hoffman and Reed, 2004). Chronic tinnitus is defined as the persistent perception of sound when there is no external source (Jastreboff, 1990). It generally is accepted that tinnitus is manageable and not bothersome for about 80 percent of those who experience it (Davis and Refaie, 2000; Hoffman and Reed, 2004; Jastreboff and Hazell, 1998). That is, most people who experience tinnitus tend to ignore it and are not interested in receiving specialized clinical services.

KNOW HOW | Tracking, Analytics, and Relevance—Oh My!

I recently was talking to a long-time co-worker and friend in a leadership position in a health-care office who commented, “What is this KPI stuff everyone keeps talking about?” I had to pause a moment to consider that someone in a significant position in health care would not understand what that is and why she should care. I began to poll colleagues, friends, professionals, and externs, and found that the majority had no clue what I was referencing. I was quite taken aback.

ACAE CORNER | Off to a Great Start

The doctor of audiology (AuD) degree was developed to support a profession with a scope of practice that had outgrown its existing educational standards. Multiple professional associations, including the American Academy of Audiology, the American Speech–Language–Hearing Association, and the Academy of Dispensing Audiologists (later renamed the Academy of Doctors of Audiology) worked to define the expanding knowledge and skills expected of competent audiologists.

ABA SOUNDING BOARD | Credentialing, Licensing, Certificates, and Certifications

Audiologists have credentialing needs that are related to a variety of factors.

New graduates with little experience outside of their foundational training need a state license and a resume that reflects a readiness for professional practice. An independent verification of credentials by a third party, such as a professional organization, is helpful for new graduates as further validation of practice-readiness.

AUDIOLOGY ADVOCATE | Congressional Swearing-In Day—the 116th Congress Begins

On January 3, 2019, the 116th Congress officially was sworn in. Having worked in Washington, DC, for a number of years, when Congress is inaugurated is one of my favorite days of the year. It is a day filled with celebration as the Capitol and surrounding buildings are filled with members of Congress and their families, congressional staffers, campaign staffers, constituents, and lobbyists.

ACAE CORNER | Practicing Preventive Audiology: Promoting Healthy Hearing

Case scenario 1...a 30-something audiologist completed a routine diagnostic assessment of a 35-year-old patient referred by her primary-care physician for rather vague complaints of inconsistent difficulty hearing in certain settings. 

The audiologist performed tympanometry, pure-tone audiometry, and phonetically-balanced (PB) word recognition testing at a comfortable loudness level. The patient’s history was unremarkable for any obvious etiologies or risks for hearing loss, although she enjoyed listening to loud music.
