Tinnitus is the sensation of sound without any external sound source. Hyperacusis is intolerance of certain everyday sounds that causes significant distress and impairment in social, occupational, recreational, and other day-to-day activities (Aazh et al, 2016). The sounds may be perceived as uncomfortably loud, unpleasant, frightening, or painful (Tyler et al, 2014).
Topic(s): mental health, Tinnitus, Hyperacusis, Pediatric, Adult, adverse childhood experiences (ACE), Tinnitus and Hyperacusis Therapy Specialist Clinic (THTSC), Tinnitus Handicap Inventory (THI), Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ), ear, nose, and throat (ENT)
Public health agencies, in conjunction with Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI) programs, monitor the results of newborn screening outcomes, newborns with risk factors for the late onset of hearing loss, the prevalence of confirmed hearing loss, the type and degree of these losses, and the number of babies enrolled in services. A public health system is the best way for all of the parties providing hearing care to a child to have access to the results of the provided care.
