Programming the Cochlear™ Nucleus® 7 Sound Processor for Nucleus® 22 Implant Recipients

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


1.  The Cochlear™ Nucleus® 22 electrode array was implanted in the US from:
  1. 1975 - 1987
  2. 1983 - 2000
  3. 1985 - 1987
  4. 1993 - 1997
2.  Recipients implanted with the Cochlear™ Nucleus® 22 have had the opportunity to upgrade their sound processor up to:
  1. 3 times (Esprit 22, Esprit 3G, Freedom)
  2. 4 times (Spectra, Esprit 22, Freedom, N7)
  3. 5 times (MSP, Spectra, Esprit 22, Freedom, N6)
  4. 7 times (MSP, Spectra, Esprit 22, Esprit 3G, Freedom, N6, N7)
3.  What color is the plug for the Cochlear™ Nucleus® 7 Sound Processor cable coil for Nucleus® 22 recipients?
  1. green
  2. blue
  3. red
  4. yellow
4.  Telemetry_______________________________.
  1. is only possible with the Cochlear™ Nucleus® 7 Sound Processor.
  2. can be performed remotely.
  3. is not possible with the Cochlear™ Nucleus® 22 implant.
  4. All of the above apply
5.  Nucleus® 22 implant patients can expect battery life for the Nucleus® 7 Sound Processor battery life to be:
  1. More or less the same as with their Nucleus® 6 Sound Processor.
  2. Unaffected by direct streaming.
  3. Exactly the same for everyone.
  4. Unrelated to skin flap thickness.
6.  Direct streaming:
  1. Does not affect battery life.
  2. Is available for compatible iPhone and Android devices, including the Apple Watch. Custom Sound Pro will indicate if the patient is a good candidate for streaming.
  3. Is not available for Nucleus® 22implant patients.
  4. Is only possible for bilateral recipients.
7.  The Nucleus ® Smart App:
  1. Is unavailable for Nucleus® 22 implant patients
  2. Is available for Nucleus® 22 implant patients with exactly the same functionality as other implants.
  3. Will not allow direct streaming.
  4. Will not display ‘coil-off’ notifications because telemetry is not possible with the Nucleus® 22 implant.
8.  The coding strategy for Nucleus® 22 patients is:
  1. SPEAK (spectral peak)
  2. ACE (advanced combinational encoder)
  3. CIS (continuous interleaved sampling)
  4. Uses half the electrodes on the array
9.  Programming in Custom Sound Pro
  1. Is not possible with Nucleus(R) 22 implant patients.
  2. Should only be done remotely for Nucleus(R) 22 implant patients.
  3. Does not utilize interpolation for a Nucleus® 22 implant.
  4. Provides telemetry and datalogging date for Nucleus(R) 22 implant patients.
10.  The Ready-to-Wear program may be an option for Nucleus® 22 patients ______________.
  1. If upgrading from a Nucleus® 6 Sound Processor.
  2. If they have not worn a sound processor for more than 5 years.
  3. If they have a compatible Android device.
  4. With surgeon approval.
