FM Technology for Cochlear Implant Users: Reaching for the Stars
The program was originally aired as part of the “Audiology 2012: Success for Students With Hearing Loss” online conference (October 17–29, 2012).
In this presentation we'll discuss a protocol for optimizing a CI user's performance with FM technology. We'll discuss current information based on recent research studies and personal clinical experience that includes: 1) the benefits of dynamic FM with contemporary CI systems, 2) the benefits and limitations of directly-coupled and induction neckloop personal FM systems (from different manufacturers) for recipients using contemporary CI systems, 3) the pros and cons of personal FM versus soundfield FM technology, and 4) real-world, practical recommendations for enhancing success with FM technology in educational settings.
You will be able to:
- describe the difference between dynamic and fixed-gain FM systems
- compare and contrast performance CI users may obtain with directly coupled and induction neckloop personal FM systems
- describe at least three important programming adjustments to optimize performance of CI recipients using FM technology
