  • Hearing Loss – A Load of Laughs March 2, 2015
    Hearing loss isn’t funny.  Not to the person who has it, anyway. Some hearing loss moments can spark a smile or a giggle or even a laugh–although most of us will laugh later—like two months or so.  That’s when you’ll tell the story of being in a group conversation and someone says “I just hate […]

  • Skip Caloric Testing? March 4, 2015
    Last week, we discussed situations where it is reasonable to perform monothermal (one temperature, two total) caloric irrigations instead of the traditional bithermal (two temperatures, four total) irrigations.

  • Don’t Forget, May is Better Hearing and Speech Month March 3, 2015
    By Lolly Wigall When I first went into private practice in audiology, I remember being excited about promoting the “May Is Better Hearing and Speech Month” campaign.

  • En Première Ligne February 25, 2015
    par Carole Willans Tout récemment, j’ai découvert une nouvelle façon d’entendre. J’ai une profonde déficience auditive bilatérale depuis un accident qui s’est produit alors que j’avais quatre ans.
