INDIANAPOLIS—Pit bulls get a lot of bad press, much of it undeserved. However, Ace, a pet owned by 13-year-old Nick Lamb of Indianapolis, did a lot to improve his breed’s image recently when he saved his master’s life. According to an AP report, Nick, who was born with a severe hearing […]
Editor’s Note: Today we continue with the third and final post of Brian Taylor’s discussion on unbundling service delivery in the audiology clinic. When most of us hear the word “innovation” our minds immediately conjure up thoughts of computers, robotic manufacturing processes, new advances in automated medical devices or some other technology designed to m

How many readers remember Tom J. Northey, The One That Got Away? Mr. Northey is a ghost guest contributor this week, not because he’s deceased but because he came to Audiology, he saw the future, and he left for greener pastures. In 2000, he wrote a monumental forecast of our profession, published in audiologyonline. […]
Changes to the ear canal occur resulting from the aging process. Additionally, there are issues that must be considered when placing auditory (or other) devices into the ear canal.

Working with a Pioneer This weeks blog is a little bit about me and my path, but mostly about a pioneer in our field that helped me along that path. I think this may be interesting because this pioneer was neither an audiologist, neurologist or ENT specialist. In fact, he was not a physician. […]
Internal machinery noise levels are probably one of the most ignored aspects of any testing paradigm. In the most-simplest of cases- sound field audiometry- internal noise is governed by the environmental noise level in the audiometric test booth. For very low frequency sounds, the audiometric test booth attenuation ability is quite limited. One would nee
With newborn hearing screening, early identification, and improvements in technology, the great majority of children with hearing loss can successfully use listening and spoken language and are educated in the mainstream. Since more than 95% of children with hearing loss are born into families with normal hearing, they may be the only person with hearing los
