Author(s): ADVANCE for Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists. Source: In: ADVANCE for Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists. 14(28):22. July 2004. Availability: Available from Merion Publications, Inc. 2900 Horizon Drive, Box 61556, King of Prussia, PA 19406-0956. 610-278-1400. E-mail: advance@merion.com. Website: www.advanceweb.com. Language: English. Abstract: This research report summarizes past and current research and clinical findings related to tympanoplasties, with a focus on the elderly. Key findings from one recent research study, presented at the Annual Meeting and Oto Expo of the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery Foundation in Orlando FL, show the anatomic and functional result of tympanoplasties decreases after age 60, but the success rate of the graft and audiological response still recommends this procedure as a viable option for the elderly patient. The findings show also a tendency not to operate on patients over age 60. Subject Category: Hearing. Descriptors: Ear Injury. Surgery. Audiology. Elderly.

Exercise Promotes Hearing Health.

Author(s): Alessio, H. H. Source: In: The Hearing Review. 11(4):36. April 2004. Availability: Available from CurAnt Communications Inc., Publisher. 6701 Center Drive West, Suite 450, Los Angeles, CA 90045-1535. (310) 642- 4400. (310) 641-0831 (Fax). Web site: www.hearingreview.com. Language: English. Abstract: In this article the authors discuss relationship between exercise and better hearing health. Two key statements from the authors are: cardiovascular health and physical fitness are positively correlated to better hearing; and an older person who is not genetically predisposed to hearing loss who can stay fit and avoid major hearing risk factors--such as noise and ototoxic medications--is far more likely to retain hearing capabilities of people in their 30s than persons who have low cardiovascular health.

Publications, 11730 Plaza America Drive, Suite 300, Reston, VA 20190. Voice: 800-AAA-2336; 703-790-8466. Fax: 703-790-8631. Web site: http://www.audiology.org/store. Language: English. Abstract: The Joint Committee on Infant Hearing (JCIH) endorses the development of family-centered, community-based early hearing detection and intervention (EHDI) systems. EHDI systems are comprehensive, coordinated, timely, and available to all infants. Eight principles provide the foundation for effective EHDI systems. Each of the principles is discussed in the Guideline, which follows the delineation of the principles. These Guidelines are developed to supplement the eight JCIH Year 2000 Position Statement Principles and to support the goals of universal access to hearing screening, evaluation, and intervention for newborns and infants embodied in Healthy People 2000 and 2010 (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 2000; U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Public Health Service, 1990). The Guidelines provide current information on the development and implementation of successful EHDI systems. Subject Category: Hearing. Descriptors: Newborn Screening. Newborn Screening Guidelines.
