Abstract Cushing disease is a relatively rare cause of Cushing syndrome secondary to a hyperfunctioning pituitary adenoma. In addition to signs and symptoms of hypercortisolism, Cushing disease may present with diverse otolaryngic manifestations, which may guide diagnosis and management. We performed a retrospective chart review of patients who were found to have Cushing disease and who underwent transnasal transsphenoidal surgery for pituitary adenomas between January 1, 2007, and July 1, 2014, at a tertiary academic medical center. There were 37 consecutive patients in this series with Cushing disease caused by ...

A few weeks ago we had an opportunity to review the new Nightingale smart home sleep system from Cambridge Sound Management, a Massachusetts firm. At its core it’s a sound and noise generator that works to distract your brain from the environmental sounds coming from all around you. Similar devices have existed in the past, but the Nightingale brings the technology into the age of digital wellness, home automation, and personalization, plus the proprietary “sound blankets” developed by Cambridge Sound Management are backed up by some serious research. The research the company poin...

As an audiologist and a human being nearing age 40, I know the lifetime cumulative effects of noise blunt my ears—and those of my patients: an increase in saying “huh?,” tinnitus and sound sensitivity, coupled with a decrease in tolerance for once-cool bars and restaurants. These classic signs indicate not just aging, but noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL), or at least what we could call noise-induced hearing difficulties. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently published a Vital Signs report stating nearly one in four of people in the U.S.—ages 20 to 69 years—shows signs of pos...

CONCLUSION: Although the vast majority listened at moderate sound levels and for shorter periods of time, the study also indicates that there is a subgroup (10%) that listens between 90 and 100 dB for longer periods of time, even during sleep. This group might be at risk for developing future noise-induced hearing impairments. PMID: 28615542 [PubMed - in process]
