Comparison of severely and profoundly hearing-impaired children's amplification preferences with the NAL-RP and the DSL 3.0 prescriptions

, : Comparison of severely and profoundly hearing-impaired children's amplification preferences with the NAL-RP and the DSL 3.0 prescriptions. Scandinavian Audiology 26(4): 219-222

Prompted by a recent paper in this journal (Snik et al., 1995), this communication compares the gain and frequency response preferred by a group of 21 severely and profoundly hearing-impaired children (37 test ears) to the NAL-RP and the DSL 3.0 hearing aid prescriptions. The results support the findings of Snik et al. (1995) that the NAL-RP procedure provides an adequate prescription of amplification on average. The individual discrepancies between prescribed and preferred characteristics imply that fine-tuning with an evaluation tool is necessary for some children. It is uncertain whether previous listening experience affects listeners' preferences, and it is suggested that further studies be carried out to address this issue.

We investigated the effects of ecabet sodium on experimentally induced reflux esophagitis in rats. Three groups of rats, i.e., a control group, esophagitis group, and an ecabet sodium group (25mg/kg given twice daily) were used. The number of anim...

DNA from the bacteriophage M13, specific for male strains of Escherichia coli, was found to have a ring sturcture similar to that of [phi]X174 DNA. E. coli DNA polymerase, free of endonuclease, uses this DNA as a template for a complete or even mo...
