KNOW HOW | Changing Times Will Revitalize Audiology Services

Audiology services and provisions are changing following the passage of the over-the-counter (OTC) hearing aid legislation. In the end, what that will actually mean is still unclear. Likely, we will see a device that can manage mild hearing loss for patients and give them some options for their hearing health care. Those of us who have practiced for many years are still trying to decide how that will fit into our current practice model and whether to incorporate an OTC product in the clinic.

CODING AND REIMBURSEMENT | Potential Pitfalls in Cochlear-Implant Billing and Reimbursement

As cochlear implant awareness increases and more individuals receive cochlear implants, the demand for related audiological services is growing across the country. To meet this need, many audiologists have begun to add, or are considering adding, cochlear implant services to their practices.

Eyes, Ears, & Teeth

In the March/April 2018 issue of Audiology Today, I compared the professions of audiology and optometry and examined some of the successes of optometry in establishing autonomy and an expanded scope of practice. You may want to stop here and give it a read. I’ll wait.

Glad you came back.

A Proposed Protocol: Assessment for Patients with Single-Sided Deafness or Asymmetric Hearing Loss

Do you fit bone-conduction hearing aids, contralateral routing of signals (CROS) hearing aids, and/or cochlear implants to your adult patients with single-sided deafness or asymmetric hearing loss (with the four-frequency pure-tone average in the poorer ear being greater than or equal to 70 dB HL)? Curious which one is the best treatment? If so, you may be interested in a consensus paper by Van de Heyning et al (2016).

Children with ANSD Fitted with Hearing Aids

Intervention for children with auditory neuropathy spectrum disorder (ANSD) represents a significant challenge in pediatric audiology. A critical tool for the fitting of amplification in young pediatric patients, the auditory brainstem response (ABR), is compromised in this population for estimation of behavioral thresholds. Despite compromised ABR responses, cortical auditory evoked potentials (CAEP) can often be recorded from ANSD patients, and there is emerging research in the application of CAEP for estimation of behavioral thresholds in this population (He et al. 2013).

Study Finds Support for Classroom Acoustics Standards (ANSI/ASA, 2010)

A recently-published study by Frank Ingelhart evaluated the speech perception performance of 23 children with cochlear implants and 23 children with normal hearing through the speech frequencies (500-4000 Hz). Speech perception testing was completed in a classroom environment at three different reverberation times—0.9 seconds, 0.6 seconds, and 0.3 seconds.
