Promoting Early Diagnosis of Congenital Hearing Loss With Patient Navigators

Parents of children who fail infant hearing screening at birth at the University of Kentucky or other hospitals in the area that are receiving follow up diagnostic testing at UK Audiology or the Commission for Children with Special Health Care Needs will be enrolled in the first part of the ...

Phase N/A

Changes in the Threshold of Electrically Evoked Compound Action Potential in Children Following Cochlear Implantation

After cochlear implantation, cochlear nerve is stimulated by giving a current over the electrodes placed in the cochlea and the current is measured by electrically evoked Compound Action Potential (ECAP).This ECAP is measured intra operatively, 4 weeks(at switch on) and after 3months and 6 months following cochlear implantation. Neural Response ...

Phase N/A

Cochlear Implantation in Pediatric Cases of Unilateral Hearing Loss

Unilateral hearing loss (UHL) is a term used to describe a substantial hearing loss in one ear and normal hearing in the contralateral ear. Despite normal hearing in one ear, these individuals experience reduced speech perception in noise, variable abilities on localization tasks, increased reports of hearing handicap, reduced quality ...

Phase N/A

Triamcinolone Levels in Cochlear Perilymph

At the ENT department of the university hospital Vienna (AKH Wien) patients are treated with intratympanic triamcinolone acetonide before cochlea implantation to reduce inflammation and in some cases to protect residual hearing. Triamcinolone acetonide levels in cochlear perilymph will be evaluated in an open prospective clinical study. Patients scheduled for ...

Phase

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

High Dose Oral Steroids in Sudden Sensorineural Hearing Loss

Sudden sensorineural hearing loss (SSNHL) affects approximately 5 to 20 per 100,000 persons with spontaneous recovery seen in 32% to 65%. Many different treatments have been investigated in attempt to improve hearing outcomes, with oral corticosteroids having some success. Steroid regimens are highly variable, however, retrospective data has suggested greater ...

Phase

Neurophysiological Measures of Auditory Perception and Rehabilitation in Cochlear Implanted Patients

This study aims at investigating new automatic fitting techniques for cochlear implant patients based on objective measures. For this reason, the evolution of these neurophysiological measures, expressing the encoding of pure tones and speech, will be characterized in cochlear implanted patients as a function of post-implantation time and will be ...

Phase N/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

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.
