In general, adults and children who obtain cochlear implants achieve favorable speech recognition outcomes. However, the presence of background noise—even minimal amounts—can negatively impact speech understanding. This session provides an overview of the hearing assistance technologies available for individuals with cochlear implants as well as evidence of the efficacy and effectiveness of the various types.
This course is a recorded session from the 2019 online conference “Audiology 2019: Cochlear Implants.”
You will be able to:
- describe 2–3 types of hearing assistance technology for patients with cochlear implants
- summarize the evidence to support each type of technology
- select the most appropriate hearing assistance technology for individual patients
