OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to evaluate the effectiveness of electrical stimulations of the hearing organ in tinnitus treatment adapting the frequency of stimulation according to tinnitus frequency, to assess the influence of cervical spine kinesitherapy on tinnitus, as well as to evaluate hearing after electrical stimulations alone and together with(More)
Transiently evoked otoacoustic emissions (TEOAE) were measured from 124 ears from two subject groups: healthy subjects (62 ears), and workers (62 ears) exposed to noise of jet engines. The recordings were analyzed using the method of adaptive approximations based on a matching pursuit (MP) algorithm. The method allows for description of the signal(More)
Clicks and a set of tone bursts covering the same frequency band were applied as a stimuli evoking otoacoustic emissions (OAE). Recorded otoacoustic emissions were decomposed into the basic waveforms by means of high-resolution adaptive time-frequency approximation method based on the matching pursuit algorithm. The method allows for description of the(More)
OBJECTIVE Almost 10-15% of the population suffer from chronic tinnitus. There are clinical indications that a 'pathological sound' may be induced by any level of the auditory pathways. Theraupeutical difficulties and many hypotheses about tinnitus and places from which they originate might indicate various methods of treatment. Electrostimulation tinnitus(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of the study was to evaluate the influence of the selective electrical stimulation of the hearing organ on tinnitus in people with sensorineural hearing loss. MATERIAL AND METHODS The study comprised 248 tinnitus patients treated by using electrical stimulation. The material was divided into two groups, regarding the method of(More)
The aim of the study was to assess the effects of exposure to impulse noise on TEOAE, as compared to PTA. The study comprised 92 soldiers, subjected to impulse noise during military service. The control group consisted of secondary school students, not exposed to noise. Extended high frequency PTA, and TEOAE were recorded before and after one year of(More)
BACKGROUND The objective of the study was to optimize the area of a time-frequency analysis and then investigate any stable patterns in the time-frequency structure of otoacoustic emissions in a population of 152 healthy adults sampled over one year. MATERIAL/METHODS TEOAE recordings were collected from 302 ears in subjects presenting normal hearing and(More)
A number of single-frequency resonant modes in click evoked otoacoustic emissions (OAEs) was investigated. The OAE modes were identified by means of an adaptive approximation method based on the matching pursuit (MP) algorithm. The signals were decomposed into basic waveforms coming from a very large and redundant dictionary of Gabor functions. The study(More)
The ratios between frequency components of evoked otoacoustic emissions (OAE) were investigated for 100 ears. The signals were decomposed by means of an adaptive approximation method into basic waveforms coming from a very large and redundant dictionary of Gabor functions. The high time-frequency resolution of the method and the parametric representation of(More)
