Characterization of a closed-set logatome test : Documentation of audiometric data: discrimination function and reproducibility.
CONCLUSION: The slope of the discrimination function at the SRT appeared to be shallow but was comparable to established word tests. Finally, there was no evidence of a learning effect in the retest, which emphasizes the low redundancy of the speech material and makes it an attractive complementary option to routine audiometric diagnostics.

CONCLUSION: The expectation regarding hearing aid provision has to be adjusted according to maximum word recognition score, the derived quality measures, degree of hearing loss, and audiogram type. PMID: 32211930 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
AbstractA retrospective review of 34 patients was done who had idiopathic sudden sensorineural hearing loss and were administered intratympanic corticosteroid in the form of dexamethasone (4 mg/ml). The results were interpreted based on pure tone audiometry and Speech discrimination score of the patient before commencing the treatment and after the treatment.
Authors: Ontario Health (Quality) Abstract Background: Single-sided deafness refers to profound sensorineural hearing loss or non-functional hearing in one ear, with normal or near-normal hearing in the other ear. Its hallmark is the inability to localize sound and hear in noisy environments. Conductive hearing loss occurs when there is a mechanical problem with the conduction of sound vibrations. Mixed hearing loss is a combination of sensorineural and conductive hearing loss. Conductive and mixed hearing loss, which frequently affect both ears, create additional challenges in learning, employment, and quality of...
Conclusion: SCDS may be addressed surgically using multiple approaches. An underwater endoscopic repair of the SCC may be safe and effective surgical treatment. SDC video link: http://links.lww.com/MAO/A808.
Conclusions: The probability of seeking audiological evaluation for bothersome tinnitus is highest for males, middle-aged patients, and those with notched or high-frequency hearing losses. These findings support the theory that tinnitus arises from sharp discontinuities in peripheral afferent innervation and cochlear amplification, which may induce topographically restricted changes in the central auditory pathway.
Conclusion: Despite performance that is generally poorer than what is generally seen in “traditional” candidates, prelingually-deafened, late-implanted (PL-LI) CI users can experience benefit in terms of both QOL and audiometric scores. The wide range of performance that is reported in the literature highlights the importance of careful patient counseling.
Conclusions: In our study, on demand and low dose ITG was effective for vertigo control in patients with intractable MD. Individualized therapy is recommended in all patients to minimize vestibular and cochlear toxicity.

Auch wenn sie als funktionelle Parameter eine zentrale Stellung in der Therapiebewertung des Sinnesohrgans Ohr einnehmen, müssen sie für die moderne Qualitätsbeschreibung um eine Reihe von Faktoren ergänzt werden. Dabei sind die z. T. unterschiedlichen Perspektiven, aus denen ein qualitativ gutes Ergebnis bewertet wird, zu berücksichtigen. Aus Sicht des Patienten sind andere Faktoren aussch...
Conclusions: Among children with congenital CMV, MEE can result in transient hearing decrease, which can reduce the efficacy of a hearing aid in those with SNHL. It is warranted that children with congenital CMV infection and SNHL receive routine audiologic and tympanometric testing to better manage hearing aid amplification levels.
Abstract Background P300 event-related potentials can be used to measure auditory processing speed, working memory, and attention. Purpose The purpose of the study was to compare P300 event-related potentials in normal-hearing adults with those of adults with Type II diabetes mellitus. Research Design A two-group (with diabetes and controls) comparative study (age- and sex-matched) with a nonprobability sampling method was used. Study Sample Sixty-four adult participants (32 with diabetes, 32 without diabetes) between the ages of 23 and 60 years participated. Data Collection and Analysis Pure-tone audiometry was p...
