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

1.  Which statement is true about fitting a conductive or mixed hearing loss?
  1. There is no way to verify a BAHD
  2. As the patient’s air bone gap increases, traditional hearing aid performance decreases
  3. Prescriptive formulas will be the same for a conductive hearing loss as they would be for a sensorineural hearing loss
  4. Patients with a mixed hearing loss are not able to wear a BAHD
2.  Which is an otologic indicator to pursue BAHD instead of an air conduction hearing aid?
  1. Inability to occlude ear canal
  2. Congenital or acquired malformation
  3. Large air-bone gaps on audiogram
  4. All of the above
3.  Which of these is a surgical option for BAHD?
  1. Cochlear BAHA Attract
  2. Med El AdHear
  3. Cochlear Sound Arc
  4. Cochlear Softband
4.  Which of these is NOT a benefit/feature of the Cochlear Osia 2 when compared to a Cochlear BAHA on a softband?
  1. Reduced feedback from device
  2. Less available gain
  3. More available gain, especially in the high frequencies
  4. Thinner profile of device
5.  Cochlear Osia 2 System U.S. indications include which of the following?
  1. Patients 12 years or older
  2. Single sided deafness defined as air conduction PTA equal to or better than 20 dB at 0.5, 1, 2, & 3 kHz
  3. Conductive or mixed hearing loss wherein bone conduction PTA is equal to or better than 55 dB at 0.5, 1, 2, & 3 kHz
  4. All of the above
