(1) To determine the effect of hearing aid (HA) bandwidth on bimodal speech perception in a group of unilateral cochlear implant (CI) patients with diverse degrees and configurations of hearing loss in the nonimplanted ear, (2) to determine whether there are demographic and audiometric characteristics that would help to determine the appropriate HA bandwidth for a bimodal patient.
It is known that hyperlipidemia reduces hearing functions. In this study, we aimed to study the effect of antihyperlipidemic drugs on hearing functions and tinnitus.
We examined the effect of hearing two types of self-relevant words, one's own name and the name of others, on vigilant attention, arousal, and subjective sleepiness during performing the Psychomotor Vigilance Test (PVT). Participants performed the PVT under three experimental conditions, (a) hearing own full name (high self-relevant condition), (b) hearing other's name (low self- relevant condition) and (c) the control condition with no stimuli. Participants heard the names every 20 sec. Self-relevance was ...
The clinical evaluation of hearing loss, using a pure-tone audiogram, is not adequate to assess the functional hearing capabilities (or handicap) of a patient, especially the speech-in-noise communication difficulties. The primary objective of this study was to measure the effect of elevated hearing thresholds on the recognition performance in various functional speech-in-noise tests that cover acoustic scenes of different complexities and to identify the subset of tests that (a) were sensitive to individua...
There are higher incidence of sudden sensorineural hearing loss (SSHL) in hemodialysis (HD) patients than in the general population. Long-term outcomes of HD patients with new-onset SSHL have yet to be investigated although SSHL is considered as an independent risk of cardiovascular diseases in the general population. We examined the risks of mortality and atherosclerotic events in HD patients with new-onset SSHL in Taiwan.
Cardiac valve calcification (VC) is very common in patients on hemodialysis. However, the definite effect of VC on left ventricular (LV) geometry and function in this population is unknown, especially when LV ejection fraction (LVEF) is normal. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of VC on LV geometry and function in long-term hemodialysis patients by conventional echocardiography and two-dimensional speckle tracking echocardiography (2D-STE).
Although many individuals with hearing loss could benefit from intervention with hearing aids, many do not seek or delay seeking timely treatment after the onset of hearing loss. There is limited data-based evidence estimating the delay in adoption of hearing aids with anecdotal estimates ranging from 5 to 20 years. The present longitudinal study is the first to assess time from hearing aid candidacy to adoption in a 28-year ongoing prospective cohort of older adults, with the additional goal of determining...
Portable music player use may have harmful effects on hearing. The magnitude and effect of frequent music exposure, especially at younger ages, on hearing are unclear.
The purpose of the present study was to investigate the laboratory efficacy and real-world effectiveness of advanced directional microphones (DM) and digital noise reduction (NR) algorithms (i.e., premium DM/NR features) relative to basic-level DM/NR features of contemporary hearing aids (HAs). The study also examined the effect of premium HAs relative to basic HAs and the effect of DM/NR features relative to no features.
Hearing loss is the third most common chronic condition but can be secondary to a range of conditions encountered in primary care. This article reviews the presentation, evaluation, differential diagnosis, and associated treatments for both acute and chronic causes of hearing loss. As the most common cause of hearing loss, this article provides an overview of age-related hearing loss, its consequences, and pragmatic treatment approaches, including over-the-counter hearing technology.
The aims of the study were to examine the acoustic reflex screening and threshold in healthy neonates and those at risk of hearing loss and to determine the effect of birth weight and gestational age on acoustic stapedial reflex (ASR).
Recently, a small but growing literature has depicted the beneficial effects of nocturnal hemodialysis (NHD) over conventional hemodialysis (CHD) in the fields of sleep disorders such as sleep apnea. The impact of various dialysis models on sleep disorders, however, has not been determined. The objective of our meta-analysis is to examine the potential effects of NHD, compared with CHD, on sleep disorders in HD patients.
In hemodialysis patients, lower plasma magnesium (Mg) concentrations are associated with a higher overall and cardiovascular mortality. The optimal concentration appears to be above the reference range for the healthy population. Plasma Mg is not routinely measured after hemodialysis. Aim of this study was to determine the effect of routine hemodialysis on plasma Mg. Plasma Mg was measured in duplicate before (Mg) and after (Mg) dialysis in 6 consecutive hemodialysis sessions of 34 patients using a fixed 0....
Antithrombotic medications (AM) are mandatory for many hemodialysis patients, but the bleeding risk associated with this therapy is elevated. The frequency of bleeding events requiring discontinuation of AM, cessation of heparin use, and/or hospitalization was compared between hemodialysis patients with and without AM. All the hemodialysis patients in our clinic were investigated. AM were prescribed in 130 of 222 patients. Except for patients with cilostazol, those with AM had significantly more frequent bl...
The Over-the-Counter Hearing Aid Act of 2017 will soon allow people to purchase hearing aids without an audiologist or hearing aid dispenser acting as a go-between. Under this new arrangement there will be no guarantee that purchasers with hearing loss will have access to the hearing care services that are often needed to optimize hearing and communication with the devices. Using data for 2013 from the Medicare Current Beneficiary Survey, we examined existing barriers to accessing those services among older...
There is a growing concern among the scientific community about the possible detrimental effects of signal levels used for eliciting vestibular evoked myogenic potentials (VEMPs) on hearing. A few recent studies showed temporary reduction in amplitude of otoacoustic emissions (OAE) after VEMP administration. Nonetheless, these studies used higher stimulus levels (133 and 130 dB peak equivalent sound pressure level [pe SPL]) than the ones often used (120 to 125 dB pe SPL) for clinical recording of VEMP. Ther...
The etiology of sudden cardiac death in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) on hemodialysis (HD) is largely unknown, though there is evidence to suggest that metabolic alkalosis induced by HD with a high-bicarbonate dialysate/prescription may play a role.
Hearing loss (HL) is the most prevalent sensory disorder. The over 100 genes implicated in autosomal recessive nonsyndromic hearing loss (ARNSHL) makes it difficult to analyze and determine the accurate genetic causes of hearing loss. We sought to de?ne the frequency of seven hearing loss-Causing causing genetic Variants in four genes in an Iranian population with hearing loss.
Poor health-related quality of life (HrQOL) is highly prevalent in patients on hemodialysis (HD), and is associated with increased hospitalizations and mortality. Cognitive behavioral (CB) techniques have improved HrQOL in HD patients but have not been routinely translated into clinical practice. The investigators present the rationale, study design and protocol of a randomized controlled trial to pilot the feasibility and effect of a translatable, behavioral-education intervention using CB techniques to im...
Hearing aid management describes the skills and knowledge required for the handling, use, care, and maintenance of the hearing aid. The importance of hearing aid management skills and knowledge is evidenced by their association with hearing aid outcomes. However, the nature of this association and the influence of participant factors on this association are unknown. Accordingly, the aims of the current study were to (a) investigate participant factors that influence hearing aid management skills and knowled...
Digital hearing aids using a 16-bit analog-to-digital converter (ADC) provide a 96-dB input dynamic range. The level at which the ADC peak clips and distorts input signals ranges between 95 and 105 dB SPL. Recent research evaluated the effect of extending the input dynamic range in a commercially available hearing aid. Although the results were promising, several limitations were noted by the authors. Laboratory testing was conducted using recordings from hearing aids set for a flat 50-dB loss; however, fie...
Contamination by metals and microbiological agents in hemodialysis water can cause clinical intercurrences in hemodialysis patients. Evaluating and assuring minimum levels of contamination from metals and microorganisms in hemodialysis water can improve patient safety. The objective of this study was to assess hemodialysis water quality in a major tertiary hospital in Brazil and investigate the relationship between hemodialysis water quality and clinical intercurrences in hemodialysis patients. A prospectiv...
For diabetes patients without nephropathy, glycemic control is important to reduce the risk or delay the progression of diabetes complications, including nephropathy. In diabetes patients on hemodialysis, good glycemic control is necessary to improve prognosis. Many factors influence the blood glucose level of diabetes patients on hemodialysis, such as factors associated with end-stage kidney disease and factors related to hemodialysis. Therefore, since glucose metabolism in diabetes patients on hemodialysi...
