This course provides clinicians – especially Otolaryngologists and Audiologists – an update on when to refer adult patients for cochlear implant (CI) evaluation. Traditional adult CI candidates are those who have moderate to profound hearing loss in both ears and have had limited success from hearing aids. Here we provide information to referring clinicians on when it is appropriate to refer their patients for CI evaluation, including a review of new “60/60” criteria, use of CI technology for patients with single-sided deafness (SSD), and updates on electric-acoustic stimulation (EAS).
