Sound therapy may train the brain to ignore tinnitus
(Reuters Health) - A sound-emitting device worn in the ear during sleep may train the brain to ignore an annoying chronic ringing in the ears, a new study suggests.
ConclusionCYG could apparently release the tinnitus symptoms in the patients with chronic nephritis. This study might give more clinical evidence for Cistanche in the treatment of tinnitus and give a new treatment method for the patients with tinnitus.
CONCLUSIONS: This study shows that patients with tinnitus have significant alterations in REM sleep latency as well as the REM sleep phase. PMID: 30296843 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusions: Brief CBT treatment for tinnitus can be delivered in an IPC setting, consistent with a population-health approach. Such treatment may result in improved quality of life for patients, and the brief approach has the potential to reduce overall cost of care. This case encourages increased identification and treatment of tinnitus within IPC settings, in order to increase access of care for patients with this burdensome condition.

ConclusionsThe results of this study showed a substantial improvement in tinnitus symptoms by using the multiple sessions of transcranial random noise stimulation in the multisite protocol without producing any additional side effects. We suggest further clinical trials with long-term follow-up be investigated.ResumoIntroduçãoTem sido relatado que a estimulação transcraniana por ruído aleatório é um tipo mais eficaz e seguro de técnica de estimulação elétrica no alívio dos sintomas do zumbido.

CONCLUSIONS Transverse sinus stenting is a rapidly developing technique that has shown good effectiveness and safety in the literature. Authors of the present study found that stenting a flow-obstructed transverse sinus in patients with IIH was a safe and effective way to treat the condition. PMID: 29961386 [PubMed - in process]

r M Abstract Although Internet-based cognitive behavior therapy (iCBT) is an effective treatment for chronic tinnitus, several patients do not improve. In the current study, baseline and process variables were compared between non-responders and responders. Data from patients participating in two randomized controlled trials on iCBT for chronic tinnitus were re-analyzed. Based on the literature, a pre-post difference on the "Tinnitus Handicap Inventory" (THI) of less than seven points improvement was used to operationalize non-response. Associations between non-response and baseline variables (age, gende...
thge Elizabet Paunović Following the Parma Declaration on Environment and Health adopted at the Fifth Ministerial Conference (2010), the Ministers and representatives of Member States in the WHO European Region requested the World Health Organization (WHO) to develop updated guidelines on environmental noise, and called upon all stakeholders to reduce children’s exposure to noise, including that from personal electronic devices. The WHO Environmental Noise Guidelines for the European Region will provide evidence-based policy guidance to Member States on protecting human health from noise originating from t...
CONCLUSION: A mean aggregate annoyance score that could reliably distinguish participants who self-report health effects (or noise complaints) from those who do not could be one of several factors considered by jurisdictions responsible for decisions regarding wind turbine developments. However, the threshold value for acceptable changes and/or levels in aggregate annoyance has not yet been established and could be the focus of future research efforts.

Conclusion: Despite a mild tinnitus handicap, the percentage of people concerned by tinnitus in this regiment is higher (19%) than that in the estimated percentage of general population of European countries (about 10%). It should be of interest to replicate this type of study from other regiments and from other countries. Education and good fitting of hearing protection for prevention of acoustic trauma sequelae should still be encouraged. PMID: 29590475 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
