View Course Details Please note: exam questions are subject to change.

1.  Appropriate aftercare for Baha Connect includes care that is:
  1. Gentle - regardless of the method, cleaning should be light
  2. Clean - the site should be kept clean at least 1 to 2 times per day
  3. Regular - daily maintenance of the implant site is important to prevent infection
  4. All of the above
2.  Each activation should include:
  1. Inspection of the implant site
  2. Performing a new audiogram
  3. The use of a Softband
  4. None of the above
3.  When connecting a sound processor to the Baha Connect, it is important to:
  1. Move hair away from the abutment
  2. Use the "tilt" technique to gently snap the sound processor into place
  3. Orient the sound processor so the button is positioned upwards
  4. All of the above
4.  The best way to choose the initial strength of a Baha Attract magnet is to:
  1. Ask the patient what strength they want to try
  2. Always start with a magnet strength of 2
  3. Find out what the soft tissue thickness was at the time of surgery, if possible
  4. Start with a 1 and go up from there
5.  SoftWear pads should be changed:
  1. Never
  2. When the pad is worn out or damaged
  3. Every day
  4. Yearly
6.  BC Direct is important to complete in the software because:
  1. Every implant is placed in a different part of the bone and this must be taken into account
  2. A recipient's individual transcranial attenuation can contribute to the overall gain needed
  3. Bone quality can affect the amount of sound that is transmitted through the bone to the cochlea
  4. All of the above
7.  Fine Tuning can be used in the software to:
  1. Provide full control of all gain and MPO adjustments in all 10 channels
  2. Suggest possible changes for common complaints
  3. Easily create a first fitting
  4. Connect to the sound processor
8.  Feedback in a Baha system can come from:
  1. Gain that is too high for the sound processor
  2. Something touching the sound processor
  3. Loose abutment
  4. Any of the above
9.  Recommended follow-up for Baha system recipients includes:
  1. A two-week follow up programming to check the site and ensure the device is programmed appropriately
  2. Weekly programming for the first 6 months
  3. No follow up is recommended
  4. Every two weeks, then monthly for the first 3 months, then every 3 months for the first year
10.  The benefits of registering a recipient's Baha sound processor with Cochlear include:
  1. Access to Cochlear Family
  2. Notification to the recipient when their warranty is ending or when they may be eligible for an upgrade
  3. A record of the recipient is on file with Cochlear
  4. All of the above
