Modern Hearing Aids : Verification, Outcome Measures, and Follow-up Hardback
Modern Hearing Aids: Verification, Outcome Measures, and Follow-Up focuses on the selection and fitting of hearing aids and the outcome procedures and measures that follow.
The world-renowned authors provide guidance for selecting prescriptive fitting approaches and detailed protocols for the use of behavioral measures and real-ear speech mapping to both verify the fitting and assess special hearing aid features.
Extensive discussion is included regarding the techniques, procedures, and test protocols for probe-microphone measures.
The authors have included numerous postfitting tests that can be conducted along with step-by-step protocols for their administration and scoring.
Follow-up care and auditory training options also are reviewed.Written in an accessible and easy-to-read style, this text includes not only reference information, but also tools supported by research and clinical experience.
The information is presented in a way that is both accessible to clinical students with little experience in the field and with enough depth for even the serious hearing aid researcher.Key features include:*Brief paragraphs identified as "Technical Tips," "Key Concepts," "Things to Remember," "Points to Ponder," and "Soapbox" for quick reference*"Endnotes" at the back of the book--interesting tidbits of information not quite relevant enough to include in the chapters, but too good to toss aside*Humor infused throughout
