Bone Conduction Solutions for Children with Conductive, Mixed or Unilateral Hearing Loss

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

1.  Atresia can be classified by:
  1. The likelihood of repair & the severity of the atresia
  2. Noise level
  3. Hearing loss level
  4. Fitting levels
2.  Children with Down Syndrome can often have:
  1. Profound sensorineural hearing loss
  2. Fluctuating conductive hearing loss
  3. Microtia
  4. Single-sided deafness (SSD)
3.  Single-sided deafness in children can cause problems with:
  1. Localization
  2. Understanding speech in noise
  3. Head shadow effect
  4. All of the above
4.  Using bone conduction to treat fluctuating conductive hearing loss can be helpful because:
  1. It provides the maximum amount of gain possible
  2. It is only a unilateral treatment
  3. It is fit to bone conduction thresholds, so gain does not need to be adjusted as the hearing loss fluctuates
  4. It is a permanent solution
5.  Bone conduction devices require ____ gain than hearing aids to treat conductive hearing loss:
  1. More
  2. The same as
  3. Sometimes more and sometimes less
  4. Less
6.  Advantages of fitting a Baha on Softband for an infant with microtia and atresia include:
  1. Not needing to make earmolds
  2. Early access to sound
  3. Flexibility of a surgical solution if later surgical options to treat atresia don't restore hearing
  4. All of the above
7.  Use of Baha to treat single-sided deafness in children does NOT help restore:
  1. Localization
  2. Head-shadow deficit
  3. Hearing in background noise
  4. Hearing from the "bad" side
8.  Compared to the Baha Softband, the Baha SoundArc is a good option for children who ____ :
  1. Are younger and have poor head control
  2. Are older and have good head control
  3. Are older and have difficulty with retention
  4. Are younger and need assistance with feeding
9.  Use of third-party remote microphone systems in the classroom (ie, Phonak Roger) with Baha 5 sound processors is:
  1. Not possible
  2. Only possible with the Baha 5 Power
  3. Possible using the Cochlear Mini-Microphone 2+
  4. Not recommended
10.  Validation for Baha fittings may include:
  1. Soundfield thresholds
  2. Parent and teacher questionnaires
  3. Speech perception testing with and without the Baha
  4. All of the above
