AUDIOLOGY ADVOCATE | Hearing Aid Coverage for Children is Necessary: Let Nebraska Show You How

While we pursue independence and autonomy for audiologists across the United States, it is of dire importance that we continue to do the same for our patients. Since the passing of the Medicare Act in 1965, health-care legislation has evolved to accommodate new advances in technology for the betterment of our patients. That vital piece of legislation, however, still has done nothing for those requiring hearing amplification. Luckily for children and low-income families qualifying for Medicaid, hearing aids are covered in some part, in every state across America.

Putting the Hear in HEARt

Cardiovascular health status is a commonly recognized determinant of hearing loss in adult populations. A recent study out of Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) has demonstrated pediatric populations are not immune to hearing-heart concerns. Madison et al. (2018) followed a group of 348 children that underwent infant surgery for congenital heart defects. The study team found that 21.6 percent of the children had hearing loss; risk was associated with pre-maturity, confirmed genetic anomaly, and longer postoperative length of stay.

Why Do So Many Preemies Have Hearing Loss?

It is so very interesting how one can know two different facts very well but not connect them. For example, I have known from the very first days of studying audiology that the peripheral auditory structure is mature in the human by the third trimester of prenatal life. I have also known for a while that the incidence of hearing loss is higher in babies born prematurely, compared to those delivered after a full-term pregnancy. And when I say higher, I mean alarmingly higher.

Children’s Headphones

A new analysis by The Wirecutter, a product-recommendation site owned by the New York Times, reveals that one-half of the "children's headphones" allowed levels more than 85 dBA limit considered safe by the World Health Organization.  Furthermore, many of the headphones tested had design flaws that allowed children to bypass safety limits easily.  The worst devices tested produced outputs of 114 dBA for music, which could potentially cause temporary or permanent hearing loss in minutes.

Is it Beneficial for Deaf Children to Learn Sign Language?

A researcher at the University of Connecticut, Marie Coppola, recently received a  National Science Foundation grant  "to study the impact of early language experiences—whether spoken or signed—on how children learn." She theorizes that the difference in success is not a matter of whether the language is spoken or signed but rather if the access to any language is early or late.

Olympic Champion Also Achieves Excellence by Protecting His Child’s Hearing

“Audiologists around the world celebrated not only Michael Phelps’ outstanding Olympic achievements, but also the commitment of Michael and his fiancée to protecting their child’s ears in a very noisy and reverberant environment,” said Ian Windmill, PhD, President of the American Academy of Audiology.

During recent Olympic swim meets, Phelps’ fiancée was shown holding their 3-month-old son, Boomer. Boomer was wearing a set of noise-reducing earphones in order to protect his young ears from the noise of the crowd in the stadium.
