Authors: Tang D, Li H, Chen L Abstract Tinnitus is one of the most common hearing disorders, with wide-ranging risk factors including age, hearing loss, noise exposure, inflammatory diseases or tumors of the ear, ototoxic drugs, head or cervical vertebra trauma, and psychological disorders (e.g., anxiety and depression). Tinnitus can be a lifelong disorder and will bring about annoyance, anxiety, depression, insomnia, hyperacusis, concentration difficulty, and, in some extreme cases, suicide. Not every tinnitus patient will require medical attention, and the majority often get accustomed to the phantom sound; howev...

Conclusions: The study results do not confirm clinical and anecdotal reports that tinnitus could be related to suicide among Veterans. However, tenets from rehabilitation psychology suggest that the onset of chronic impairment or disability does not predict an individual’s subsequent psychological states; other personal attributes may be more influential. Health care professionals, such as audiologists and psychologists, should be cognizant of the associations between tinnitus and mental health issues and be prepared to address the psychological needs of individuals who have tinnitus.

Tinnitus, the hearing of sound when no external sound is present, may cause severe distress and impair quality of life in 0.5-3% of the adult population [1]. Chronic severe tinnitus is often accompanied by severe insomnia, anxiety and depression, eventually resulting in suicide and requests for euthanasia [2]. For these patients, few treatment options are currently available and 20% remains affected despite treatment [1].

By ROBERTO ASCIANO We are living in an age where thousands upon thousands of individuals and companies are trying to find faster, better and cheaper ways to get things done leveraging the latest digital technologies. We are so completely surrounded by efforts to innovate, disrupt and accelerate, that it may come as a surprise to find out that “innovation” has been around ever since our earliest ancestors shed their body hair and started walking upright. Since those early days, our ancestors have sought solutions to their everyday problems and the “technology” they leveraged was whatever the environ...

In the 1980s I absolutely loved punk rock. I lived in Greensboro, N.C. and struggling punker bands traveling from Atlanta to D.C. for weekend gigs would unload their equipment-filled vans into tiny bars for mid-week performances to pay for gas money for the trip. I would move toward the stage to listen to the raging of tatted, bare-chested men, roaring like aircraft engines, their words almost impossible to decipher. You didn't need to. You didn't listen to this music. You felt it. Now in my late '60s guess what I get? Can you say "tinnitus"? When it first showed up a decade or so ago I began wearing earplugs, cl...

"I wonder how you're feeling There's ringing in my ears And no one to relate to 'cept the sea..." -- Peter Frampton There are few afflictions as constant and annoying as tinnitus, which Wikipedia defines as: "The hearing of sound when no external sound is present. While often described as a ringing, it may also sound like a clicking, hiss or roaring. Most of the time, it comes on gradually. In some people, the sound causes depression, anxiety or interferes with concentration." It is a surprisingly common condition with chronic tinnitus affecting 5 to 10 percent of the U.S. adult population, with about 0...
