Hear what it's like to have tinnitus: From a kettle boiling to TV static
EXCLUSIVE British audiologists have come up with a range of niggling noises, from screeching and roaring tones to the buzz of electrical sparks, to raise awareness of tinnitus.
Conclusions: Our findings suggest that maladaptive neural plasticity resulting from tinnitus can be subcortically measured and affects timing processing of both speech and non-speech stimuli. The findings have been discussed based on models of maladaptive plasticity and the interference of tinnitus as an internal noise in synthesizing speech auditory stimuli.
Conclusion: This study is the first to signify that the risks of mortality and atherosclerotic complications in HD patients with new-onset SSHL are increased. Therefore, we should pay attention to risks of mortality and atherosclerotic events in HD patients with new-onset SSHL.
Conclusions: Blast-related otologic injuries have a significant impact on morbidity. Comprehensive otologic evaluation and state-of-the-art treatment may lead to a significant improvement in symptoms and hearing loss.
Conclusions: These findings suggest that DKI can provide comprehensive characteristics to demonstrate reductions in the auditory cortical GM and hypomyelination of WM fibers in the auditory pathway caused by auditory deprivation early in life.
Conclusions: SGCC decline from ISSNHL diagnosis through life.
Conclusions: Risk factors for poor hearing recovery in ALFHL included longer symptom duration and 1 kHz involvement. In ALFHL with such risk factors, combination therapy was more effective than oral steroid therapy.
On the first day of last week’s highest-attended ASHA Convention in history, Leader editors asked attendees what challenges they wanted to overcome by being there. As the convention drew to a close, we asked: “What did you learn that you can put into practice when you get home?” Based on answers we received, attendees greatly appreciated the hands-on labs running throughout the convention, as well as what they learned from exhibitors, session presenters and conversations with fellow attendees and ASHA staff. Throughout convention, we also asked members what you want to hear on our new podcast launchi...
Conclusions: This study represents the 1st research into discussion forums in tinnitus online support groups. A nonintrusive (passive) analysis method was used, whereby messages comprising the dataset were retrieved without direct interaction with the discussion forum. Individuals and the community of tinnitus online support groups are deemed to be at low risk from potential harm in this study. Most tinnitus patients likely benefit from accessing online support groups, for example, they discover they are not alone, and they find new coping strategies. However, for those who are particularly vulnerable or prone to psycholog...
Conclusions: The clinical benefits of audiologist-guided iCBT for tinnitus and tinnitus-related difficulties were sustained 1 year postintervention. Predictors of outcome indicated that the intervention is applicable to a wide range of participants regardless of their demographic backgrounds. Attempts should be made to minimize unwanted events in subsequent trials. PMID: 30452747 [PubMed - in process]
