Blast Exposed Veterans With Auditory Complaints

The purpose of this study is to study blast-exposed Veterans who report hearing handicap but show normal or near normal results on standard audiometric testing. The characteristics and nature of their auditory and auditory-related skills will be examined with a battery of behavioral and physiologic measures. The potential contributions of ...

Reducing Childhood Hearing Loss in an Alaska Native Population Through a New School Screening and Referral Process That Utilizes Mobile Health and Telemedicine

Hearing loss is a common health problem in Alaska. Up to 75% of children growing up in Alaskan villages experience frequent ear infections, one of the major treatable causes of hearing loss. Children with even mild hearing loss face many challenges. These children often experience speech and language delays and ...

Phase N/A

Aural Rehabilitation for Cochlear Implant Users Via Telerehab Technology

Aural rehabilitation training (AR) has been demonstrated to improve outcomes for adult cochlear implant users. There are both financial and non-financial barriers to AR service delivery including accessibility (mobility, distance and transportation problems), accommodation (time off work impossible, caring for family) and availability (limited providers in rural areas, financial constraints, ...

Phase N/A

Feasibility of an Online Rehabilitation Program

STUDY PURPOSE This feasibility study is a precursor of a randomised controlled trial (RCT) that will evaluate the effectiveness of an English-speaking version of the online program originally evaluated by Thorn et al in adult hearing aid users. This study will estimate a number of parameters necessary for the robust ...

Phase N/A

Characterization of Auditory Processing Involved in the Encoding of Speech Sounds

The ability to encode the speech signal is determined by ascending and descending auditory processing. Difficulties in processing these speech signals are well described at the behavioral level in a specific language disorder. However, little is known about the underlying pathophysiological mechanisms. The assumption is that we should observe a ...

Optimisation of Hybrid Fittings for Cochlear Implant Recipients

When providing amplification post-implantation to residual acoustic hearing in the implanted ear, the lower frequency boundary can be modified to minimize or avoid overlap between the frequencies coded through acoustic hearing and those presented through electrical stimulation. This boundary is termed the cross-over frequency (Fc) and the effect of modifying ...

Phase N/A

Dry Needling on the Treatment of Chronic Somatosensory Tinnitus: An Open Pilot Study

The first phase of the study will be the placebo needling, performed with a sham needle and following the same procedures than the therapeutic treatment. Four placebo sessions will be performed, 1 per week, with placebo stretching, followed by washout period of two weeks, and 4 more dry needling therapeutic ...

Phase N/A

Addressing Barriers to Adult Hearing Healthcare

This project will compare implementation of three PCP-based hearing screening strategies that include progressive levels of PCP time and guidance to complete telephone-based hearing screening. Those who fail screening go on to a medical referral study and receive (1) diagnostic audiological testing and (2) determination of the reliability and validity ...

Phase N/A

Mini-Mental State (MMS-LS) and Sign Language

The objective of this study is to assess the intrinsic quality of the tool MMS-LS, a mini-mental state examination that has been adapted to the sign language in order to monitor cognitive disorders in deaf people who speak sign language.

Phase N/A

Hearing Health Care Service Access and Use

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the extent to which hearing health outcomes are improved when patients are screened for hearing loss and provided an educational brochure or screened and provided the brochure plus an educational segment emphasizing points in the brochure versus a standard screening only protocol. ...
