Because Sound Matters

Our Promise

Sound is a fundamental part of daily life that opens up a world of wonder. Sound and hearing are the key to human development and interaction. Sound is the way we understand, recognize and socialize with other people. In short, to hear is to live. Imagine a world without sound, without being able to hear, without being able to interact.

At Oticon Medical, we are passionate about using our combined expertise and resources to open up the world of sound to as many people as possible.

We do so because we appreciate that when it comes to quality of life, sound and sound quality matter.

Continuing Education

Hearing Intervention and Cognition: Review of the Evidence and Current Trials
 CEU courses
Presented by Victoria Sanchez, AuD, PhD
Recorded Webinar
Course: #35142Level: Intermediate1 Hour
Hearing loss is associated with decreased health-related quality of life, accelerated cognitive decline, and dementia. Cognition may be amenable to comprehensive hearing rehabilitative treatment consisting of the use of hearing technologies (hearing aids, Osseointegrated devices, and other assistive devices) and rehabilitative training. However, there are no randomized controlled trials to definitely show that hearing intervention can reduce the rate of cognitive decline. Furthermore, little is known about the different types, degrees, and configurations of hearing loss and how that may influence cognitive outcomes. A review of evidence and current studies will be provided.
