Tinnitus Update: Theory and Practice

In this presentation David will undertake a guided tour through recent insights and developments in tinnitus. Research into mechanisms of tinnitus has made progress, and there are some new ideas about the relationship between tinnitus and decreased sound tolerance (hyperacusis). Clinical practice is also changing, and there are opportunities for independent sector Audiologists to support and treat patients with tinnitus.

Professor Marshall Chasin, AuD
Director of Auditory Research at the Musicians’ Clinics of Canada, Recipient of the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal & Editor in Chief, Canadian Audiologist.

Hearing Aids & Music:

Music and speech have some differences which include spectral shape, intensity and “crest factors”.  Most modern digital hearing aids cannot handle the more intense inputs that are characteristic of music.

Four new technologies and four clinical strategies will be provided to optimize hearing aids for music as well as for speech.  These technologies are designed to circumvent some problems associated with the analog-to-digital conversion process- a major weak point with modern hearing aids
