Foundations of Bone Conduction: Cochlear Osia System Technology

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

1.  Which of the following is a benefit of using piezoelectric technology in an implanted bone conduction device?
  1. It has several separate moving parts
  2. It has a magnet in the transducer
  3. It is thin and does not require significant bone removal
  4. It is less reliable than other types of bone conduction devices
2.  The Osia OSI200 implant has a “monolithic design”, which means it is all one piece. From an audiology perspective, this is advantageous because:
  1. The coil is kept at a fixed distance from the transducer, minimizing the possibility of feedback
  2. The processor placement will be exactly the same from patient to patient
  3. The sound processor does not need a magnet to stay on the coil
  4. The patient can move their coil
3.  All of the following are features of the Osia 2 Sound Processor EXCEPT:
  1. IP68 Water resistance with the Aqua+ accessory
  2. Made for iPhone direct-to-device streaming
  3. Exchangeable color covers
  4. Snap coupler
4.  A common retention option used with the Osia 2 Sound Processor is:
  1. A hair clip and dual loop safety line
  2. A hugfit
  3. A snugfit
  4. Earmolds
5.  The Osia Clinical Trial demonstrated that patients receive significantly more benefit with the Osia System compared to percutaneous bone conduction systems in the following areas:
  1. Low frequency sound detection, speech in quiet and speech in noise
  2. High frequency sound detection, speech in quiet and speech in noise
  3. Speech in quiet but not speech in noise
  4. Mid frequency sound detection only
