The purpose of this prospective study was to determine the incidence and type of hearing loss occurring in children who suffered head injuries. Fifty children admitted to the neurosurgical service after sustaining head trauma were studied. Neurologic, otologic, and audiologic evaluations were performed. Diagnostic studies included skull roentgenograms and(More)
BACKGROUND Significant growth in the U.S. population over the next 30 yr will likely increase the demand for hearing-care services. In addition, increased accessibility to hearing-care services may be realized due to increased insurance coverage associated with health-care reform efforts.

Relatively few complications have been reported for cochlear implant surgery in spite of a recent report detailing a complication rate of 11.8 percent. This report highlights both the surgical and nonsurgical complications we have encountered that have resulted in either replacement of the implanted prosthesis or compromise of the sound processing strategy(More)
Hearing thresholds were measured in 12 subjects prior to and following their participation in three experimental conditions: (a) riding a cycle ergometer for 20 minutes; (b) listening to a selection of music at an equivalent intensity of 96 dB(A) SPL for 20 minutes; and (c) listening to the music while riding the cycle ergometer for 20 minutes. Analysis of(More)
The Joint Committee on Infant Hearing 2000 position statement includes guidelines for the development of Early Hearing Detection and Intervention programs. These guidelines provide specific recommendations for the audiologic test battery for infants who fail a newborn infant hearing screening.

Traditional approaches to unbundling hearing aid services often take existing bundled charges and then separate the charges across all potential services associated with dispensing the devices. However, this method results in every patient being charged the same amount even though the complexity of the service varies across patients. We describe a model of(More)
