This study is aimed at identifying the best performing algorithm and the most relevant characteristics to categorise individuals with HIV/AIDS at high risk of dementia from the application of data mining. Principal component analysis (PCA) algorithm was used and tested comparatively between the following machine learning algorithms: logistic regression, decision tree, neural network, KNN, and random forest. The database used for this study was built from the data collection of 270 individuals infected with HIV/AIDS and followed up at the outpatient clinic of a reference hospital for infectious and parasitic diseases in the...

Human brain performs remarkably well in segregating a particular speaker from interfering ones in a multispeaker scenario. We can quantitatively evaluate the segregation capability by modeling a relationship between the speech signals present in an auditory scene, and the listener's cortical signals measured using electroencephalography (EEG). This has opened up avenues to integrate neuro-feedback into hearing aids where the device can infer user's attention and enhance the attended speaker. Commonly used algorithms to infer the auditory attention are based on linear systems theory where cues such as speech envelopes are m...

Semin Hear 2021; 42: 088-097 DOI: 10.1055/s-0041-1731689Providing same-day hearing aid fitting appointments to patients being seen in an audiology clinic for an audiometric evaluation may help decrease clinic wait times and reduce the need for future in-person appointments. Prior to 2020, the Veterans Administration (VA) Healthcare System did not allow hearing aid manufacturers to provide functional demonstration (demo) hearing aids to VA audiology clinics. Due to the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19) pandemic, this rule was changed to minimize the number of required in-person VA audiolo...

Semin Hear 2021; 42: 165-174 DOI: 10.1055/s-0041-1731697The demand for telehealth services will continue to grow alongside an increased need for audiology services among both children and adults. Insurance coverage policies for audiologic services are specific to each payer and vary widely in the level of coverage provided for both in-person and telehealth-based audiology services. While benefits for children are fairly comprehensive, coverage for audiology services for adults is generally poor. Traditional Medicare does not cover hearing aids or other rehabilitative audiologic services, and other payer policies vary widel...

AbstractSummaryWe evaluated the association of bone fracture with mortality among persons with HIV, controlling for sociodemographic, behavioral, and clinical factors. Incident fracture was associated with 48% greater risk of all-cause mortality, underscoring the need for bone mineral density screening and fracture prevention.Purpose/IntroductionLow bone mineral density (BMD) and fracture are more common among persons with HIV (PWH) than those without HIV infection. We evaluated the association of bone fracture with mortality among PWH, controlling for sociodemographic, behavioral, and clinical factors.MethodsWe analyzed d...

AbstractPurpose of reviewThe evolving epidemiology of people living with HIV (PLWH) shows growing trends towards age-related conditions and diseases. As antiretroviral therapies (ART) have improved, AIDS-related cancers have declined but non-AIDS-related cancers are on the rise. Despite advances in HIV care, there continues to be significant health outcome disparities between PLWH with cancer compared to the general population. This literature review aims to highlight evidence on healthcare and biological risk factors, such as screening rates, age at diagnosis, stage at diagnosis, ART treatment, and cancer treatment that c...
