This issue contains two articles. First, authors describe a procedure for completing and applying electrically evoked stapedial reflex threshold (ESRT) measures, objective measures that correlates to upper comfort/stimulation (C/M) levels, to cochlear implant programing. The authors explain evidence, research, set-up, equipment, and procedural practices for ESRTs. Next, authors focus on speech, language, and hearing professionals who provide informational counseling for individuals with hearing loss to facilitate success in a variety of settings. The focus and content of the information changes throughout the life of the individual from initial diagnosis through young adulthood. These shifts, guided by speech-language pathologists in collaboration with professionals from multiple disciplines who work with this population, can help to maximize a successful life trajectory.

The first article discusses how electrophysiological measures can supplement traditional audiometric evaluation in assessment of age-related hearing loss (ARHL). Perceptual consequences of ARHL in part, can be attributed to a reduced ability to accurately process temporal and frequency cues of speech. The frequency following response and cortical-auditory evoked potential measures may be used to identify deficits in the neural processing of speech and guide management of ARHL. The second article shares current evidence supporting an association between cognitive impairment and hearing loss. Research is ongoing to determine whether management of hearing loss with amplification devices and auditory rehabilitation reduces the risk for cognitive decline. The third article highlights a novel pharmaceutical intervention for ARHL. Specifically, the paper focused on AUT00063, a small molecule that modifies a critical ion channel, Kv3, involved in repolarization of a neural action potential within the central auditory pathway. The final article focuses on the aspects of cognition that are most relevant to behavioral auditory research and provides an overview of cognitive hearing science, auditory neuroscience, and electrophysiological measures ideal for studying how the brain processes speech.

This Perspectives, shared two insightful articles that could influence clinical care decisions. The first article discussed the ambiguity in the diagnosis of an auditory processing disorder and what to consider when selecting a diagnostic test. This article defined the “gold standard” test and elaborated on diagnostic accuracy research. The second article detailed the prevalence and indicators of dementia. Research suggests that hearing loss is a potential modifiable factor for dementia. This article reviewed considerations for hearing assessment, counseling, and communicating with patients with dementia. Audiologists play an important role in differentiating communicative behaviors associated with hearing loss from those of dementia and can assist in optimizing hearing and safety of persons with dementia.

This Perspectives focused on the current cochlear implant candidacy for adults with hearing impairment. We reviewed factors such as bilateral implantation, bimodal stimulation, surgical improvements, MRI compatibility, insurance coverage, and cosmetic considerations. We discussed the benefit of preserving low-frequency hearing loss with the hybrid/electro-acoustic cochlear implant. Moreover, we examined potential contributors for loss of residual acoustic hearing with hybrid/electro-acoustic cochlear implantation in a subset of patients. Etiologies such as mechanical damage to cochlear structures, inflammation and apoptosis of hair cells, and alterations to blood flow were discussed. Audiologists should stay informed on implantable solutions to hearing loss and should recommend cochlear implant evaluation for patients that fit the expanded candidacy criteria.

Exposing Hidden Hearing Loss
Format(s): On Demand Webinar
ASHA CEUs:
0.2
2.0
Noise exposure and aging are common causes of acquired sensorineural hearing loss, marked by damaged hair cells and evident in threshold audiograms. Recent studies have shown that well before overt hearing loss is apparent, a more insidious process frequently occurs, one that doesn’t kill hair cells, but instead permanently interrupts their communication with cochlear neurons. This cochlear synaptic loss can be dramatic, even in ears with normal threshold audiograms, where it has been called “hidden hearing loss.” This webinar will review hidden and overt effects of noise and aging on the ear and hearing, focusing on documented synaptopathic and neurodegenerative outcomes and predicted functional consequences, including speech-in noise difficulties, tinnitus, and hyperacusis.

This Perspectives highlighted research on assessments of cochlear hair cells and middle ear function. We examined measurement techniques used to separate the transient-evoked otoacoustic emission (TEOAE) response from the stimulus, and discussed how the nonlinear differential and the double-source, double-evoked techniques affect TEOAE characteristics. The significance of measuring the short latency component of the TEOAE was discussed. We explored the effects of oxaliplatin, cisplatin, and carboplatin on objective and subjective high-frequency auditory measures in adults. We shared how distortion-product otoacoustic emission (DPOAEs) and ultra-high frequency, pure-tone audiometry can be used to obtain a more comprehensive hearing profile and treatment plan for adults receiving platinum chemotherapies. Finally, we reviewed standard single- and multi-frequency tympanometry measures and wideband acoustic immittance (WAI) measurements, including wideband energy reflectance and wideband absorbance tympanometry. Normative and pathological findings WAI findings were shared. More detailed middle-ear assessments can be used as a screening and a diagnostic tool for middle ear disorders and for newborn hearing screening. Audiologists should include otoacoustic emission testing and multifrequency and wideband tympanometry in their clinical “toolkits.”

1.5
This Perspectives focused on cognition and hearing abilities in adults. We shared how working memory capacity and attention should be considered when selecting and programming amplification and providing aural rehabilitation for individuals with hearing loss. Individuals with higher working memory capacity are able to utilize fast-acting compression settings to aid in speech understanding in complex listening environments, while those with lower working memory can experience negative repercussions from such settings. Additionally, clinicians can counsel on cognitive effects on speech understanding and involve top-down strategies in their auditory training. We also examined the effects of aging on psychoacoustic performance, noting an association between cognition and discrimination abilities in older adults. Factors like impaired temporal processing and reduced frequency selectivity impact hearing abilities of adult clients in the clinic, but are rarely assessed in a standard hearing evaluation. Finally, we examine why pure-tone threshold testing is insufficient at predicting hearing handicap in the adults with minimal to mild hearing loss, and how to assess which of these individuals would benefit from rehabilitation and/or amplification. Factors such as previous noise exposure, age, working memory, ability to use conversational context, and speed of auditory processing are important to consider.

Early Hearing Detection and Intervention: Issues and Trends
Format(s): Journal (Online)
ASHA CEUs:
0.45
4.5
For many years, states have been following national guidelines for universal newborn hearing screenings to help identify children with hearing loss and coordinate follow-up. Yet there are still significant numbers of children who are lost to follow-up and do not receive timely care. This journal self-study explores issues related to early hearing detection and intervention (EHDI), including what data are collected, how process changes may affect follow-up, which factors appear to most influence follow-up after the identification of hearing loss, and whether or not adding genetic testing to the newborn hearing screening process will aid in the detection of at-risk children. The self-study also looks at what can be done to support parents of children with hearing loss and how identification after the newborn period influences the timeliness of service delivery. Clinicians who work with newborns with hearing loss will benefit from learning more about the obstacles that prevent families from obtaining timely services and ways to assist other professionals and parents to ensure optimal care.
