Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Otolaryngology Volume 46, Issue 07: Hearing Devices.
The goals of this program are to improve management of hearing loss (HL) with implantable and external devices. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Use audiologic and other criteria to determine a patient’s eligibility for cochlear implantation.
2. Prevent and treat surgical complications of cochlear implantation in adults and children.
3. Choose the most effective hearing device for patients with asymmetric HL.
4. Determine which patients would benefit from a bone-anchored hearing aid.
5. Manage surgical complications from bone-anchored hearing aids.
The original programs were presented by Nikolas H. Blevins, MD, Larry and Sharon Malcolmson Professor, Chief, Division of Otology/Neurotology, and Medical Director, Stanford Cochlear Implant Center, Palo Alto, CA, John Oghalai, MD, Associate Professor of Otolaryngology, Stanford University, Palo Alto, CA, Gerald Popelka, PhD, Consulting Professor of Otolaryngology and Chief of Audiology, Stanford University, School of Medicine, Palo Alto, CA, and Elina Mindlina, AuD, Clinical Audiologist, Vanderbilt Bill Wilkerson Center for Otolaryngology and Communications Sciences, Nashville, TN.
