Question

Can I perform verification of hearing aid fittings and validation in FF using my Trumpet system?

Answer

The verification of hearing aid fittings is conducted to ensure that their gain and output are correct. Each hearing instrument programming can only be verified employing REMs, adjusting the sound measurements just in front of the tympanic membrane via the REM probe measurement tube, using validated prescriptive targets displayed via a probe microphone system, matching the output to these targets using a calibrated LTASS input signal (e.g. ISTS) delivered at soft, medium and loud levels.

The validation of the verification process is also paramount to ensure that the end user obtains what they wanted or required, not just in terms of addressing audibility and intelligibility but also in terms of their perception of loudness. The validation part varies but it should also include accurately assessing the patient’s individual psychoacoustics and hearing aid needs.

Inventis Trumpet is an advanced Real Ear Measurement system but also a Diagnostic Audiometer. The best combination unit in terms of portability, convenience and size. Size (WxDxH): 15.5 x 10 x 24.5 cm; Weight: 1.5 kg / 3.5 lb; Weigh - wireless probes: 50 g / 0.11 lb. (see Figure 1).

Controlled through Maestro software interface (see Figure 2), it is easy to do verification and then validation running QUICKSIN via free field using the Trumpet built-in amplified speaker.

Over the past five years, we have seen a growing interest in studying vestibular disorders in children. The most commonly noteworthy are vestibular disorders in congenital sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) and cochlear implants. Identifying and diagnosing vestibular and balance dysfunction in children is essential for their overall well-being. However, the diagnosis process is very demanding.This talk will provide an overview of vestibular and balance assessments in children with SNHL.

Besides typical symptoms and signs (including pulsatile tinnitus, hyperacusis, pressure/sound-induced torsional nystagmus, conductive hearing loss and lowered thresholds of air-conducted VEMPs) an analysis of the relevant literature reveals a certain clinical polymorphism induced by superior canal dehiscence (SCD). In addition to asymptomatic persons or subjects with SCD presenting exclusively with cochlear symptoms (only partly explained by the so-called “near-dehiscence syndrome”), SCD cases mainly presenting with atypical/refractory/recurrent positional vertigo and/or Meniere-like vertigo spells have been recently described. Moreover, if surgical occlusion of the superior canal (SC) results in symptoms control inducing a selective SC hypofunction, clinicians my sometimes accidentally detect a reduced SC VOR gain in asymptomatic patients with wide-sized dehiscence. These findings led authors to propose the occurrence either of a natural SC plugging (complete or incomplete) by middle fossa dura prolapsing into the canal lumen or a dispersion of mechanical energy through the dehiscence. Typical and atypical scenarios is presented. A subsample of patients from the personal series with a complete otoneurologic assessment (audiometry, VOG eye recording, air/bone-conducted cervical/ocular VEMPs, video head impulse test) is selected to explain these emerging theories on possible pathomechanisms.

  'This was the most relevant and useful course I have personally ever taken'   Read Reviews
This session walks clinicians through a typical hearing aid fitting using Real-Ear Measurement (REM) and interprets the obtained aided/unaided Speech Intelligibility Index (SII) values. The Expected Benefit with Amplification (EBA) tool is introduced to help clinicians assess the adequacy of their fittings and to counsel patients based on the measured improvement in audibility.
