Pediatric Amplification: Enhancing Auditory Access

The authors of Pediatric Amplification: Enhancing Auditory Access set out to provide a comprehensive resource for professionals who serve children who are hard of hearing and their families and caregivers, and they have delivered it. The book is easy to...

Surgical anatomy for central auditory device implantation

This cadaveric study by researchers in the USA and Japan examined the cerebellopontine angles with the aid of the surgical microscope and 45o endoscope via the retrosigmoid and translabyrinthine approach. Using fibre dissection technique, the ascending auditory pathways between the...

Auditory brainstem response patterns are neural signatures

Through examples, this article describes how particular aspects of auditory brainstem responses can portray certain kinds of language or communication impairments – a characteristic pattern or ‘neural signature’. A reduction in processing of the fundamental frequency is seen commonly in...

A Guidebook for the Auditory Perception Test for the Hearing Impaired

The Auditory Perception Test for Hearing Impaired (APTHI) assesses functional auditory skills that are the building blocks for language and academic development. The test is aimed at children with at least a moderate-to-severe hearing loss, aged three and over, but...

Auditory brainstem implant results in adults and children

Background The auditory brainstem implant (ABI) has been developed from cochlear implant (CI) technology and is indicated for people who have anatomical abnormalities of the cochlea or dysfunction of the auditory nerve. The majority of people who have received an...

Is auditory frequency discrimination related to speech recognition in implantees?

Why do two identical implantees perform differently? This fundamental question has not yet been answered despite the extensive research in the field. The authors attempted to clarify the issue, or at least approach it, assessing the association between deficits in...

Cobalt hip implants and auditory-vestibular outcome

Cobalt-chromium (Co-Cr), metal-to-metal hip implants were commonly used until several side-effects were reported due to an increased level of Co and Cr metal ions in patients’ blood. Although this type of hip replacement was almost completely abandoned, there are still...

Auditory processing in children with unilateral hearing loss

It is a common assumption that unilateral hearing loss (UHL) in children is of little consequence because appropriate development of speech and language can still occur with one normal hearing ear. Recent studies, however, suggest that there are significant differences...

Auditory Brainstem Evoked Potentials: Clinical and Research Applications

This book is aimed at and will be most useful for students first learning about ABR or researchers/clinicians looking for in-depth explanations on the anatomical sites of generation for the differing auditory brainstem evoked potentials. It is, however, I would...

Utilisation of cortical auditory evoked potentials in the paediatric population

Introduction Early identification of hearing loss in infants followed by prompt intervention is well established as the key to maximising the development of speech, language and psychosocial skills. Many countries have already adopted early hearing detection and intervention (EDHI) programs,...

The development of the Paediatric Arabic Auditory Speech Test for iPad

Speech in noise testing provides real-life assessments of hearing that conventional pure tones cannot deliver. Rania Alkahtani describes the development of such a test for Arabic speaking children. It also has the additional benefit of being able to be delivered...

The effects of hormonal changes across menstrual cycle on high frequency auditory thresholds

Physiological changes during the menstrual cycle are well documented; do these changes extend to the auditory system? Lalsa Shilpa Perepa and Rewa Indurkar delve into the literature to find the evidence. Menstrual cycle refers to a series of changes that...
