Evaluating Rehabilitation Options for Individuals with Hearing Difficulties and Pure-Tone Hearing Thresholds within Normal Limits

At the end of last year, we reviewed an article by Alicea and Doherty (2017) that examined the motivation for hearing health-care intervention services by individuals with normal audiograms who present with hearing difficulties. Since then, two studies have been published that evaluated intervention approaches for these individuals.

Can You Hear Me Now?

Hearing difficulty (HD) and tinnitus in the presence of normal audiometric thresholds represent a clinical challenge. So-called, hidden hearing loss (HHL) has captured significant interest from clinicians and researchers in attempts to understand factors that contribute to this phenomenon. Etiologies ranging from cochlear synaptopathy to central auditory processing deficits have been suggested. Most audiologists have come across these patients with complaints of hearing problems (particularly in noise) but normal hearing.

Unilateral Hearing Loss: What to Do?

Patients with unilateral hearing loss can present with variable issues. Much is dependent on the severity of the hearing loss (threshold and speech understanding), age of onset, hearing status of contralateral ear, and presence of comorbidities (e.g., vertigo, cognitive status, central auditory processing, hyperacusis, tinnitus, disease/pathology/disorder, etc.). Adult-onset severe-to-profound unilateral sensorineural hearing loss with normal hearing sensitivity in the contralateral ear presents a unique dilemma.

Variations on a Theme: Mild Hearing Loss and Word Recognition Scores

Timmer et al (2015) report that the prevalence rate of mild hearing impairment varies greatly with the definition. They report that the weak correlations between audiologic assessments and patient-based self-reported difficulties indicate further assessment of individuals with mild hearing impairment is warranted.  In their Table 2 (page 788) they offer a “summary of descriptive classifications of mild hearing impairment” which includes similar, although different, common definitions of mild hearing loss.

Screenings and the Increasing Prevalence of Hearing Loss

Prieve et al (2015) report their review of 18 studies (of 376 identified) published between December 2012 and April 2013. They report that “it is important to screen school-aged children for hearing loss because the estimated prevalence of hearing loss in school-aged children is at least double that in newborns….”
