Cochlear Science and Research Seminar on-line - Tinnitus and Cochlear Implants

Cochlear Science and Research Seminar on-line - Tinnitus and Cochlear Implants

This pre-recorded Cochlear Science and Research Seminar covers sets the focus on Tinnitus and Cochlear Implants.

More CI candidates may choose a CI system if they would know CI helps their tinnitus.

  • Tinnitus affects 10% - 15% of the population, which equates to up to 146m adults in developing countries alone. Tinnitus is more prevalent in patients with hearing loss. 50% to 80% of CI-candidates are estimated to have tinnitus.
  • Counseling therapies are available to help some patients with the reactions to their tinnitus, but not with the tinnitus itself.
  • A CI improves tinnitus in about 80% of the cases, and as such is at least as good or better than other available tinnitus treatments. We want customers and potential customers to be aware of the advantages of CI for tinnitus.
  • Tinnitus benefit is seen very clearly in the context of SSD.
  • Mapping and some counselling should also be addressed. We want customers and potential customers to be aware of the materials Cochlear has available already. The panel discussion will bring advise and tips for clinicians for counselling CI patients with tinnitus.
