10/01/2004 - "Though traditional hearing aids remain the mainstay of treatment for most uncorrectable hearing loss, partially implantable devices may offer solutions when standard therapy fails."
12/01/2010 - "Adult aural rehabilitation for hearing loss in a public health care facility, even without optimal hearing aid fittings, was effective in providing positive perceived outcomes comparable to similar studies in developed countries. "
08/01/2007 - "According to previous studies on the matter, our data suggest that identification of hearing loss at early age associated with early hearing aid fitting, and enrollment in early intervention within the first 12 months of age, may help to obtain good results in the receptive language skills performance. "
02/01/2001 - "Findings were consistent with previous studies showing positive outcomes for newer technologies but also showed that two subjective factors, prefitting hearing aid expectations and acceptance of hearing loss, significantly influenced hearing aid outcome."
03/01/1979 - "This study sought to determine if a high-pass hearing aid can provide increased improvement in word recognition and consonant discrimination over that of a conventional high frequency emphasis hearing aid in listeners with hearing loss limited to frequencies above 1 000 Hz. Word and consonant discrimination were assessed in quiet and in the presence of 12 talker speech babble for 10 subjects under three listening conditions: (1) unaided; (2) wearing a conventional high frequency emphasis hearing aid, and (3) wearing an experimental high-pass instrument.
