Adult Group Aural Rehabilitation: Implementing a Successful Program

Over the years, there has been an expansion of group aural rehabilitation programs facilitated by audiologists to support new hearing aid users and their families. These programs focus on hearing aid use, the psychosocial aspects of living with hearing loss, collaborative problem solving, and the facilitation of communication strategies (Kricos, 2000). There are numerous advantages to offering group aural rehabilitation, but what makes a program successful?

Implementing Family-Centered Care in Adult Audiologic Rehabilitation: The Hows and Whys in Clinical Practice

More specifically, this article will (1) describe the principles of family-centered practice in adult audiologic rehabilitation, (2) summarize observations of family-centered behaviors in current audiologic rehabilitation, and (3) identify opportunities to increase the family-centeredness of adult audiologic rehabilitation. To address these aims, we will outline the research evidence behind family-centered care (FCC) (the why), and from this, describe how FCC might best be implemented in audiologic rehabilitation.

Audiology Needs a Paradigm Shift: Moving From a “Condition-Based” Paradigm to a “Resource-Based” Paradigm

Audiology is the study of one of the most important senses we possess as human beings: a sense that connects us 24/7 to our environment, to other people through a real-time fusion of mind and emotion we call speech, and to the opportunities of life that arise from being in the right place at the right time.

Yet, despite all this, society largely seems to consider hearing care irrelevant. It often takes a crisis in a person’s life before someone seeks out an audiologist—if they seek us out at all.

Auditory Training Schedules: What Is the Best Strategy?

Are the outcomes of an auditory training (AT) program better if the training is intensive and done close together in time (i.e., massed) or spread apart (i.e., spaced)? Tye-Murray et al (2017) attempted to answer this question.

“Cool” Research in Hearing Loss Prevention

Prevention of hearing loss is a major area of research. Novel approaches for primary and secondary prevention are in various stages of development including pharmacological and non-pharmacological approaches. Therapeutic hypothermia has been long used to protect neural and vascular integrity dating to the pioneering work of Fay nearly 75 years ago (Fay, 1940). However, systematic hypothermia can have unwanted side effects, which restricts application in clinical settings.

A Futuristic Suit that Mimics Untreated Hearing Loss

HIV and Hearing Loss

Several large-scale studies are consistently pointing toward an association between human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and hearing loss. Torre and his colleagues have recently reported HIV as a risk factor for hearing loss in children and adults. HIV-infected children have poorer hearing compared to HIV-unexposed but uninfected children as well as those who are perinatally exposed to HIV, but remain uninfected. HIV-infected adults also have poorer hearing compared to HIV-uninfected adults. Further, the magnitude of hearing loss seems to increase with the severity of HIV.

The Importance of Frequency Regions for Cochlear Implant Patients

Sladen and Ricketts (2015) report that given current cochlear implant (CI) technology, the majority of post-lingually deafened adults achieve 80 percent word recognition (in quiet) after only six months experience with a CI. In their study, CI users were presented with monaural information and the NH listeners had binaural input. The noisy condition was a 10 dB SNR with six-talker babble. Of note, “the average decrease in performance between quiet and noisy conditions was 13% for the NH group and 20 percent for the CI group.”

Meclizine: Update Issues and Answers

Desmond (2015) reports that Meclizine (aka Antivert, Nonine, and Dramamine II) is an antihistamine with antiemetic and anti-cholinergic properties (i.e., anticholinergics tend to block the transmission of acetylcholine in the PNS and CNS). MedicineNet.com reports that “Meclizine is an antihistamine with antiemetic and antispasmodic activity. It suppresses the nervous system by blocking the action of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine.

Acoustic Neuroma: Possibly Malignant?

Recently, Maducdoc et al (2015) reported on 12 cases of “malignant transformation” from benign to malignant acoustic neuromas. Of note, some 42 percent of neurotologists treat acoustic neuroma with stereotactic radio surgery (SRS). Indeed, 8 of the 12 cases were noted following SRS and microsurgery (MS), while 4 of the 12 transformed after MS only. The authors note that the mechanism that may lead to a malignant transformation seems “more obvious” for SRS, and is less well understood for MS.
