Diabetes is now the most common chronic disease, affecting nearly 6% of the population in Western populations. Diabetic neuropathy is a priori the most common and the most common specific complications of diabetes. It can of course touch the lower limbs, the vegetative nervous system as well as the cranial nerves. However, the association between hearing impairment and diabetes has always been controversial on the basis of conflicting literature data. Are auditory disorders an ...
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 functional decline and depression adds further to the burden on the hearing-impaired. Although hearing amplification improves quality of life, hearing evaluations are offered infrequently to older patients. Only 25 percent of patients with aidable hearing loss receive treatment. Up to 30 percent of ...
Hearing loss is one of the most common congenital anomalies. Early Intervention at or before 6 months of age allows a child with impaired hearing to develop normal speech and language.Auditory brainstem response , otoacoustic emissions testing have all been used in newborn hearing-screening programs
This study will look at the feasibility and acceptability of testing newborn babies who are referred after their newborn hearing screen for an infection called congenital Cytomegalovirus (cCMV). Around 1 in every 100 to 200 babies is born with this virus, and although most remain well it causes 1 in 5 cases of childhood deafness. Knowing that a baby is infected shortly after birth could have significant benefit since a treatment is now available, but screening programs need to ...
Busy Primary Care providers (PCPs) have complex practices with many competing demands, making it difficult to improve their HL identification rates. Little research has been conducted to identify effective approaches to address the poor PCP knowledge and provide tools for them to better identify/refer patients with HL for appropriate intervention. Current data suggests there is a critical need to redesign how PCPs deliver hearing health care (HHC) by developing focused educatio...
More than 29 million people in the US are living with diabetes, many of whom will develop diabetic retinopathy (DR) or diabetic eye disease (DED), the leading cause of vision loss and blindness in working-age adults. Annual eye screening is recommended for all diabetic patients since vision loss can be prevented with laser photocoagulation and anti-VEGF injections if DR is diagnosed in its early stages. Currently, the number of clinical personnel trained for DR screening is ord...
The aim of this study is to validate uHear™, an iOS-based tool, as a screening tool to detect significant hearing impairment as part of a comprehensive geriatric assessment in patients aged 70 years and older. The pass or fail screening cut-off is defined as having two or more consecutive hearing grades starting from the moderate-severe threshold zone ranging from 0.5 - 2.0 kHz.
This study is designed to investigate the benefits of the hearing aid in the laboratory and in daily life when fitted with two different methods. Subjective and objective evaluations will be made. The aim is to show the benefits of the hearing aids with both fitting methods with the help of data obtained, and to improve the available fitting methods in order to further increase the benefit for people with hearing disorders in situations where the standard method and those train...
This study is being conducted to evaluate the benefits of in-the-ear vs. open-fit behind-the-ear hearing aids. We want to learn more about which patients prefer each type, so we can make better choices about which type of hearing aid is best for which patients. Participants in this study will try three different sets of hearing aids for 2 months each, then we will evaluate the benefit of each type.
The purpose of the study is to investigate how best to screen for Endolymphatic sac tumors (ELSTs) in von Hippel-Lindau (vHL) patients in order to diagnose the ELSTs while they are still small so that hearing loss can be prevented. Up to 16% of vHL patients are known to develop endolymphatic sac tumors in the inner ear that can cause permanent hearing loss. However, the ELSTs are often not found before hearing loss has already occurred. The challenge for doctors is to diagnose...
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 of personal skills to compensate for the limitations of their impaired ears.
Randomized trial comparing internet-delivered ACT with therapist support against waiting list for persons with hearing loss and comorbid psychological distress
A methodical evaluation of new CE-labelled Phonak Hearing Systems is intended to be conducted on hard of hearing participants to grant quality control prior to product launch. The aim of the investigation series is to ensure zero-defect overall performance of the new hearing systems as well as maximum benefit for the participant with the devices in comparison to previously outstanding Phonak Hearing Systems.
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 have trouble in school. Teens with hearing loss are more likely to drop out of school, and are at risk for having difficulty finding jobs as adults. Promptly diagnosing ...
The proportion of elderly people is expected to increase greatly within the next couple of decades, resulting in a proportional increase in the need for hearing rehabilitation. However, studies suggest that as many as 40% of hearing aids are never or seldom used. Thus, a major challenge for audiological rehabilitation is facilitating the use of fitted hearing aids. This study has four objectives; 1) to evaluate the effect of advanced notice of a follow-up appointment on ...
In Brazil 10% of the adult population has diabetes. Of these, 39.0% are undiagnosed, at risk for developing complications such as diabetic retinopathy (DR). Due to the increasing prevalence of diabetes and high percentage of patients with uncontrolled disease, cost-effective tools are needed with focused attention on diabetes prevention and management in the current health system. The automatic retinopathy detection can enlarge the screening, reducing the workload and costs com...

These sound changing principles are enabled by respective hearing instrument technologies and hearing instrument algorithms. The aim of the study is to investigate and asses strength and weaknesses of these novel sound changing principles in terms of hearing performance to deter...
Hearing aids are used to improve audibility for patients with hearing loss and improve speech perception. In addition to these immediate benefits, amplification has the potential to have long-term effects on higher level auditory processing abilities, such as cognition or other abilities required for complex listening tasks. These long-term acclimatization effects are not well understood and merit further behavioral and physiological examination. Hearing aids will be fit on ine...
Hyperacusis is the intolerance to sound levels that normally are judged acceptably loud to others. The presence of hyperacusis (diagnosed or undiagnosed) can be an important reason why some persons reject amplified sound from hearing aids. Tinnitus Retraining Therapy (TRT), originally proposed for the treatment of persons with debilitating tinnitus, offers the significant secondary benefit of increased Loudness Discomfort Levels (LDLs), along with expansion of the dynamic ran...
This is a 12-months’ randomized clinical trial that aims at studying the benefit of bilateral hearing aids in hearing impaired patients suffering from a slight to moderate stage Alzheimer disease. The benefit of this intervention will be studied in the cognitive, behavioural, quality of life and economic fields. 2groups are involved in this trial: Intervention group: 12 months' treatment with active hearing aids, fitted hearing impairment Control group: 6 months' trea...
