Evidence Based Protocols for School Screening

February 1, 2024

The results of recent published research on childhood hearing screening supports a new approach for identification of hearing loss in preschool age school age children. In this video, Dr James W. Hall III discusses how screening with a combination of distortion product otoacoustic emissions (DPOAEs) plus tympanometry is most sensitive, efficient, and effective technique for identification of hearing loss in children under the age of 7 years, including preschool children. Pure tone hearing screening with a protocol that includes signals at 1000 Hz, 2000 Hz, 4000 Hz, and 6000 Hz stimulus is recommended for children aged 7 years and older.See the full series here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLUhDvmfrsK5bpqKtDiqQsK_rSKWrm7-9f Learn more about these screening product tutorials: https://www.grason-stadler.com/tutorials

The Audibility Index: An Indispensable Counseling Tool for Modern Hearing Clinics
In the ever-evolving field of audiology, the Audibility Index (AI) emerges as a pivotal tool, bridging the gap between clinical assessments and patient counseling. In an insightful interview with AudiologyOnline, Clayton Fisher delves into the nuances of AI, a metric that revolutionizes the understanding and communication of hearing loss. Fisher, leveraging his extensive expertise, unveils how the AI, or Speech Intelligibility Index (SII), quantifies the percentage of speech audible to an individual, offering a tangible perspective on auditory impairments. With the advent of modern audiometry suites like Maestro by Inventis, the manual task of calculating AI has been simplified, allowing clinicians to focus on comprehensive patient care. Through real-world applications and patient reactions, Fisher underscores the AI's significance in enhancing diagnostic accuracy and fostering patient acceptance of their auditory conditions. This discussion not only highlights the clinical utility of AI but also prompts a reevaluation of traditional methods, advocating for a more nuanced approach to diagnosing and addressing hearing loss.
