Screening and Characterization of Hearing Disorders in Diabetic Persons.

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 ...


Audiology Visits After Screening for Hearing Loss: An RCT

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 ...

The Benefits Feasibility and Acceptability of Extended Screening Testing in Newborn Babies Who Are Referred for Further Hearing Assessment

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 ...

Age-related Hearing Loss and Lexical Disorders

In France, Alzheimer's disease accounts for 70 to 80% of the causes of neurocognitive disorders, i.e. 600,000 to 800,000 patients. It is a neurodegenerative pathology that causes evolutionary cognitive dysfunction, mainly affecting memory functions. The inability to name familiar objects (lack of the word) is one of the most commonly noted symptoms at an early stage of the disease. Presbyacusis, or age-related hearing loss, is the most common sensory deficit in the elderly ...

Early Auditory Referral in Primary Care

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...

Pilot Assessment of EyeArt as an Automated Diabetic Retinopathy Screening Tool

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...

Validation of uHear™ as a Screening Tool to Detect Hearing Impairment in Older Cancer Patients Within a Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment - BIS

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.

A Comparison of a Currently Marketed Hearing Aid Programmed With Two Different Fitting Methods

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...

Evaluation of Open-canal Behind-the-Ear Hearing Aids and Traditional In-the-ear Hearing Aids.

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.

Screening for Endolymphatic Sac Tumours (ELSTs) in Von Hippel-Lindau (vHL) Patients

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...

Validation of Cognitive Screenings for the Hearing Impaired

There are currently no cognitive tests that have been validated as screening tools for people with dementia and comorbid hearing loss. This is particularly important given the high prevalence of hearing impairment in older adults presenting to memory services and the risk of misdiagnosis of dementia in this population as outlined above. Cognitive tests validated in hearing impaired populations will also be important as outcome tools for interventional research aiming to find o...

Clinical Trial of the "Living Well With Hearing Loss Workshop"

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.

A Self-management Intervention for Adult Patients With Hearing Difficulties to Promote Hearing Aid Use and Benefit

The aim of the present study is to test I-PLAN as a self-management tool to promote hearing aid use and benefit (measured by self-reported questionnaires and hearing aid data-logging) among new adult hearing aid patients via a randomised controlled trial compared to treatment as usual. We hypothesized that the I-PLAN will increase hearing aid use and reduce self-reported hearing difficulty via promoting hearing aid use habits and self-regulation with respect to hearing aid use.

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 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 ...

Automated Diagnostic Test for Diabetic Retinopathy in Brazilian Mass Screening

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...

Use of Hearing Aids. Development and Implementation of a Counselling Program for Hearing Aid Users

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 ...
