Lyric is an FDA-approved hearing aid for individuals with mild to moderately-severe hearing loss. Since it is worn 24 hours per day for months at a time, Lyric needs to fulfill various requirements with regard to biocompatibility and pressure applied to the skin of the ear canal, as well as environmental properties such as breathability and moisture transport, in order to maintain healthy ear canals. Factors which appear to be associated with poorer ear health are smaller Lyric devices, and poor general overall health. This course will discuss the proper ear canal management as well as factors which may contribute to overall Lyric ear health outcomes and success.
- Participants will be able to discuss the contributing factors associated with Lyric use and ear canal management.
- Participants will be able to identify Lyric candidacy outcomes and the expected associated ear canal outcomes.
- Participants will be able to explain how to assess a Lyric patients ear canal status and general overall health to determine candidacy and potential success with Lyric use.
