Audiologists have an ever-changing suite of treatment options for patients who have conductive hearing loss, mixed hearing loss or single-sided deafness. This course will provide professionals who don’t directly work with Baha technology an up-to-date overview about candidacy, current state-of-the-art technology and counseling tips for potential candidates.
This course will provide participants with an overview of the Hybrid(tm) L24 FDA clinical trial results. Specifically, the presenter will review the clinical trial criteria, the study results, current patient performance and programming considerations.
This presentation will reveal new bone conduction solutions for treating single-sided deafness (SSD) and mixed hearing loss. Details include patient identification, programming and specifications of an off the ear and behind-the-ear sound processor, revolutionizing the Power and SuperPower category by accommodating sensorineural hearing losses up to 65dB HL.
This course will provide an introduction latest off the ear sound processor to the Nucleus family, the Kanso Sound Processor. It will also include improvements in the latest version of Custom Sound programming software.

This course is the first introduction of Baha 5® Sound Processor featured in the Baha 5 System. The Baha 5 Sound Processor is the smallest, most discreet sound processor on the market. Participants will be exposed to the industry’s first and only made for iPhone bone conduction sound processor featuring the Ardium Smart platform with Bluetooth® Smart Technology and SmartSound iQ.
This course provides learners with a foundation in the fundamentals of SmartSound® iQ including how it works, and when. SmartSOund iQ is the industry's first automatic scene classifier, designed to optimize hearing and understanding speech without any action from the recipient. Independent data and programming considerations for this population will be reviewed in detail.
The introduction of the new Cochlear Baha 5 Sound Processor includes new programming software, the Baha Fitting Software 5.0. This course will provide a quick overview and an in-depth look into the new fitting software, new programming flow, and features used to streamline the process to obtain optimal fittings for Baha patients.
This course reviews the benefits of using hybrid hearing, or electro-acoustic stimulation (EAS) for cochlear implant recipients. Dr.Gifford provides compelling data to support maximizing acoustic hearing to improve speech understanding in noise and localization.
This course reviewed data demonstrating the benefits of the Cochlear Wireless Wireless Mini Mic including case studies. Learners will be able to effectively counsel patients on how enhance listening in challenging situations with the mini Mic
Working with infants can be challenging especially when the validation and verification protocols are not the standard ones used with traditional amplification. This course will discuss in detail Softband fittings using the Baha system. Candidacy and criteria for Softbands will be outlined. Verification and validation protocols for fitting infants and children with Softbands will also be explained. This course will give clinically based strategies with data to reinforce the fittings for these infants and children.

Many pediatric audiologists are the professionals families turn to for guidance when their child has atresia and/or microtia. This course will guide audiologists in atresia/microtia surgical repair and the Baha system. It will review various surgical reconstruction options for atresia and microtia and their potential audiological results post-surgery. Also to be discussed will be candidacy and criteria for the Baha system and its post-surgery potential. Lastly three families will explain their journey through this process.
