This study evaluates whether a 2 hour group session, "The Living Well with Hearing Loss Workshop," can successfully teach hard of hearing people how to best use hearing aids and a variety...
Hearing impairment is one of the most common disabilities in veterans. The decreased ability to communicate is troubling in itself, but the strong association of hearing loss with functio...
Hearing loss is an established independent risk factor for dementia. Likewise, recent research demonstrated cognitive deficits in subjects with vestibular loss. However, in these studies d...
The Cooling Bolero is a gel-filled vest manufactured by Nanohealth. It is a cool therapy device intended to provide moderate cooling (~15C/59F) through indirect contact with the skin. The ...
The purpose of this research study is to test the effectiveness and safety of the study drug, AM-111. AM-111 is tested for the treatment of sudden sensorineural hearing loss where the caus...
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 diagn...
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 accura...
Hearing loss is common and associated with poorer health and impeded communication. Little is known about the association between hearing loss and substance use disorders in the general population. Th...
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease. Sensorineural and conductive hearing loss have been reported in RA, but the results of most studies are not in agreement. The pathogenesis of the he...
The aim of this document is to improve the management and the treatment of unilateral or asymmetrical hearing loss in children. One in one thousand newborn infants has unilateral hearing loss and this...
Hearing loss due to exposure to explosive loud noise or chronic exposure to sound level greater than 85 dB. The hearing loss is often in the frequency range 4000-6000 hertz.
Hearing loss due to disease of the AUDITORY PATHWAYS (in the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM) which originate in the COCHLEAR NUCLEI of the PONS and then ascend bilaterally to the MIDBRAIN, the THALAMUS, and then the AUDITORY CORTEX in the TEMPORAL LOBE. Bilateral lesions of the auditory pathways are usually required to cause central hearing loss. Cortical deafness refers to loss of hearing due to bilateral auditory cortex lesions. Unilateral BRAIN STEM lesions involving the cochlear nuclei may result in unilateral hearing loss.
Hearing loss due to damage or impairment of both the conductive elements (HEARING LOSS, CONDUCTIVE) and the sensorineural elements (HEARING LOSS, SENSORINEURAL) of the ear.
Hearing loss without a physical basis. Often observed in patients with psychological or behavioral disorders.
Hearing loss in frequencies above 1000 hertz.
