      Blocked with moisture/cerumen
      Blow out
    • 8. Hearing Aid
      Troubleshooting
      Earhook
      Plugged with moisture
      Blow out or replace
      Battery Door
      Broken?
      Replace
    • 9. Hearing Aid
      Troubleshooting
      Microphone
      Weak or no amplified sound
      May hear buzzing or interference if put near computer screen or fluorescent light
      Try cleaning microphone port with a brush
      Otherwise send in
    • 10. Hearing Aid
      Troubleshooting
      Processor/Amplifier
      Weak, distorted
      Send in
      Receiver
      Distorted or no sound from hearing aid at all with earhook removed
      Send in
    • 11. Hearing Aid Fitting
      Pediatric considerations
      Size
      Compliance
      Communication
    • 12. Hearing Aid Fitting
      Size
      Smaller ear canal volume
      Higher sound pressure level
      Importance of real ear measurements
      Growth
      Ear canal volume increases
      Real-ear aided gain decreases
      Earmold fits loosely
    • 13. Hearing Aid Fitting
      Compliance
      Hearing aid retention
      Habituation schedule
      Incentives
      Volume control deactivation
    • 14. Hearing Aid Fitting
      Communication
      Daily listening checks
      Familiarity with child’s typical response to sound
      Training child to report issues
    • 15. Cochlear Implant
      External processor
      External coil
      Internal coil
      Electrode array
    • 16. Cochlear Implant
      External processor
      External coil
      Internal coil
      Electrode array
    • 17. Advanced Bionics Auria
    • 18. Advanced Bionics Auria
      FireFly™ lights up to provide visual confirmation that the processor is communicating with the implant and the power source is operating.
      When first on, it will flicker either 1or 2 times depending on which program is active.
      It will illuminate a steady amber light if the system is functioning properly.
      It will flicker rhythmically if the processor is not communicating with the internal implant.
      It will not illuminate at all if the battery is depleted.
