Hearing Aids for Babies: Predicting Audiograms from ABR for Candidacy and Fitting
At the April AAA 2018 conference in Nashville, TN, the following session was presented:
LM212: Hearing Aids for Babies: Predicting Audiograms from ABR for Candidacy and Fitting.
Susan Scollie, Marlene Bagatto, Viji Easwar, David Purcell
Key points included:
- Rationale for correcting from nHL to eHL for the purposes of threshold estimation in infants prior to hearing aid fitting;
- Review of research in the area of nHL to eHL corrections including current issues in this area; and
- New data on the validity and application of corrections within the program, clinical protocols.
The Infant Hearing Program (IHP) in Ontario purchased new ABR equipment (Integrity V500TM, Vivosonic Inc.) and seven IHP sites provided data from 82 infants. The data was used in the evaluation of ABR collection parameters and their impact on current corrections.
