Most hospitals outsource supply procurement to purchasing alliances, or group purchasing organizations (GPOs). Despite their early 20th century origin, we lack both national and trend data on alliance utilization, services, and performance. The topic is important as alliances help hospitals control costs, enjoy tailwinds from affiliated regional/local alliances, and face headwinds from hospital self-contracting and criticism of certain business practices.
To report the utility of the ultrasonographic biophysical profile, which includes all the components of a biophysical profile minus the nonstress test, in women with maternal indications for antepartum surveillance.
Many individuals with bilateral cochlear implants hear different pitches when listening with their left versus their right cochlear implant. This conflicting information could potentially increase the difficulty of singing with cochlear implants. To determine if bilateral cochlear implants are detrimental for singing abilities, ten perilingually/postlingually deaf bilateral adult cochlear implant users were asked to sing "Happy Birthday" when using their left, right, both, or neither cochlear implant. The r...
This paper describes the background, organization and findings of a project undertaken in 2016-2017, to examine the benefits and challenges of the use of the Cochlear Mini Microphone (MM) by the families of pre-school children with cochlear implants on the Nottingham Auditory Implant Programme.
The Threshold Equalising Noise (TEN) test can be used to detect cochlear dead regions Patients with cochlear dead regions may gain limited benefit from conventional amplification The TEN test can be used to assess selected cochlear implant candidates who do not meet pure tone audiometry criteria for implantation Our patients with cochlear dead regions had good outcomes following cochlear implantation This article is protected by copyright.

Report on the safety/efficacy of a novel, carbon dioxide (CO2) laser-assisted protocol for hearing-preservation cochlear implantation (HPCI) and electric-acoustic stimulation (EAS).
Variability in speech perception outcomes with cochlear implants remains largely unexplained. Recently, electrocochleography, or measurements of cochlear potentials in response to sound, has been used to assess residual cochlear function at the time of implantation. Our objective was to characterize the potentials recorded preimplantation in subjects of all ages, and evaluate the relationship between the responses, including a subjective estimate of neural activity, and speech perception outcomes.
Cochlear nerve aplasia or hypoplasia is found in up to a half of patients with unilateral or bilateral hearing loss. There is an ongoing discussion regarding the indication of cochlear implants for hearing rehabilitation in cases with radiologically-defined aplasia or hypoplasia of the cochlear nerve in those patients, especially in children. At present there is conflicting evidence whether the audiological outcomes of those children with a CI are comparable to those of children with a CI and a radiological...
To report a series of patients with neurofibromatosis type 2 (NF2), where each patient underwent both cochlear implantation and auditory brainstem implantation for hearing rehabilitation, and to discuss factors influencing respective implant success.
To improve the existing manually-assembled cochlear implant electrode arrays, a thin film electrode array (TFEA) was micro-fabricated to have a maximum electrode density of 15 sites along an 8-mm length, with each site having a 75 1.8-μm (diameter - height) disk electrode.
Cockayne Syndrome (CS) is a rare, autosomal recessive disorder characterized by a spectrum of phenotypic abnormalities, including progressive sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) that involves both peripheral and central components. To date, a single series of CS patients undergoing cochlear implant (CI) placement has been reported; this study reports on additional previously unreported pediatric CI recipients. Subjective benefits were noted early after activation in both patients, and speech perception scores...
Cochlear Implants (CIs) are neural prosthetic devices that provide a sense of sound to people who experience profound hearing loss. Recent research has indicated that there is a significant correlation between hearing outcomes and the intra-cochlear locations of the electrodes. We have developed an image-guided cochlear implant programming (IGCIP) system based on this correlation to assist audiologists with programming CI devices. One crucial step in our IGCIP system is the localization of CI electrodes in ...
Cross-sectoral collaborative organizations (e.g., alliances, coalitions) bring together members from different industry sectors to ameliorate multifaceted problems in local communities. The ability to leverage the diverse knowledge and skills of these members is predicated on their sustained participation, which research has shown to be a significant challenge.
This study based on the technology evolution theory, S-curve and bibliometrics, verified product evolution was accompanied by the evolution and transition of a number of sub technologies. It judged MRI was in the stage of underdevelopment and a new round of technology was being developed. It was found that the value of MRI equipment in scientific research or clinical application in foreign countries was higher than that in China by comparing the literatures at home and abroad. And there was a gap between Ch...
Current management recommendations for equipment-laden athletes in sudden cardiac arrest regarding whether to remove protective sports equipment before delivering cardiopulmonary resuscitation are unclear.
Health policy is often designed to help protect patients' financial security. However, there is limited understanding of the role medical debt plays in household finances. We used credit report data on more than four million Americans to study the age profile of people whose medical bills were sent to a US collections agency in 2016. We found that, unlike health care use and spending, medical collections decreased substantially with age. The average size of medical debt decreased nearly 40 percent from pat...
To answer the dilemma clinician's face when deciding between cochlear implant (CI) and auditory brainstem implant (ABI) treatment options in patients with cochlear nerve deficiency (CND).
Electrocochleography is increasingly being utilized as an intraoperative monitor of cochlear function during cochlear implantation (CI). Intracochlear recordings from the advancing electrode can be obtained through the device by on-board capabilities. However, such recordings may not be ideal as a monitor because the recording electrode moves in relation to the neural and hair cell generators producing the responses. The purposes of this study were to compare two extracochlear recording locations in terms o...
Cochlear implant (CI) greatly enhances auditory performance as compared to hearing aids and has dramatically affected the educational and communication outcomes for profoundly deaf children. Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) pioneered CI program in 1995 in the South East Asia. We would like to report the long-term outcomes of UKM paediatric cochlear implantation in terms of: the proportion of children who were implanted and still using the device, the children's modes of communication, their educational ...
Patients with profound hearing loss due to inner ear malformations may benefit from cochlear implantation; however, the surgery may present a substantial problem for the cochlear implant surgeon due to anatomical variations. The authors describe a new surgical and technical advancement for implantation in patients with small inner ear cavities that make the surgery easier and safer. On the basis of experience involving five consecutive surgeries performed in four patients with inner ear malformations, we pr...
To examine inter-aural hearing preservation results in children undergoing simultaneous bilateral cochlear implantation (CI).
Previous randomized controlled trials (RCT) failed to demonstrate benefits of patent foramen ovale (PFO) closure (PFO-C) over medical therapy (MT) for secondary prevention of cryptogenic ischemic stroke. Three recently published RCTs, however, turned out positive for PFO-C and warrant an updated meta-analysis.
The primary aim was to identify the proportion of individuals within the adult cochlear implant population who are aware of tinnitus and those who report a negative impact from this perception, using a bespoke questionnaire designed to limit bias. A secondary aim was to use qualitative analysis of open-text responses to identify themes linked to tinnitus perception in this population.
