This study describes the antibiotic resistance of 1961 staphylococcal strains that were isolated at the University Hospital of Vienna from July to December 1991. Staphylococcus aureus (SA) represented 43.2%; coagulase-negative (CNS) staphylococci 56.8%, three quarters of which were Staphylococcus epidermidis. Excepting netilmicin, the proportion of(More)
BACKGROUND Bilateral contralateral routing of signals (BiCROS) hearing aids function to restore audibility of sounds originating from the side of the unaidable ear. However, when speech is presented to the side of the aidable ear and noise to the side of the unaidable ear, a BiCROS arrangement may reduce intelligibility of the speech signal. This negative(More)
BACKGROUND Wind noise is a common problem reported by hearing aid wearers. The MarkeTrak VIII reported that 42% of hearing aid wearers are not satisfied with the performance of their hearing aids in situations where wind is present. PURPOSE The current study investigated the effect of a new wind noise attenuation (WNA) algorithm on subjective annoyance(More)
In modern health care systems nosocomial infection is a major cause of patient suffering and leads to high financial costs. Overall nursing care that is part of nursing staff's daily routine is not brought under scrutiny often enough. The goal of this research project is to look at a small part only of optimal intravenous drip care. The focus of the paper(More)
BACKGROUND The benefits offered by noise reduction (NR) features on a hearing aid had been studied traditionally using test conditions that set the hearing aids into a stable state of performance. While adequate, this approach does not allow the differentiation of two NR algorithms that differ in their timing characteristics (i.e., activation and(More)
