Speaking of Fireworks and Summer Sounds

With the Fourth of July just now behind us, we still have plenty of family cookouts, gatherings by the pool or at the beach, and more summer celebration sounds and fireworks ahead. It is usually a good idea to keep the fireworks to the professionals and attend a show in your region applying safe show practices (with hearing protection in hand or rather in ears).

Maximize Children’s School Outcomes: The Audiologist’s Responsibility

For children with hearing loss to succeed in school, good access to classroom information is absolutely essential. Acoustic accessibility means that the child’s technology and classroom acoustics need to be monitored, educational staff need to understand the effect of hearing loss on the reception of academic and social information, and teachers need to know how to employ useful classroom modifications. If there is no educational audiologist to advocate for the child, someone else needs to pick up the slack.

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.
