A curve-fitting method is described whereby the results of an adaptive speech test can be used to obtain an accurate value for the speech reception threshold and an estimate of the slope of the psychometric function in the neighbourhood of this threshold.
This paper reports on the use of individual hearing aids by hearing-impaired children over a period of 10 years, from 1977 to 1987. During this period the hearing aids of 1853 children attending schools for the deaf, units for the partially hearing (PHUs) and ordinary schools were examined. The...
The component functions of a paediatric audiology service are outlined on the basis of the main broad categories of patient and their requirements, as seen from a ‘good practice’ standpoint; a service structure is offered in terms of patient flow. This leads to a distinction between the...
The effect of modifying the frequency response of a hearing aid system has previously been reported only on 2 cc couplers. Although it is recognized that coupler measurements do not accurately reflect real ear measures, they are frequently quoted when describing the effect of modifying a hearing...
Evoked potentials to sinusoidal amplitude-modulated tones have been described in normally hearing adults. Our aim was to test the use of this response to estimate pure tone threshold in adults with a sensorineural hearing loss. Patients with symmetrical pure tone audiograms with near-normal...
When an earmould is vented, either to relieve sensations of blockage or to modify the frequency response of a hearing aid system, the gain setting at which feedback occurs is lowered. Although this principle is widely appreciated, the typical gains at which feedback occurs have received little...
