SLHS 7550 - Mgmt and Prev of Noise and Noise Induced Hearing Loss
Spring 2018 / Spring 2020 / Spring 2022
Discusses the prevention of hearing loss from public health perspectives. Includes the effects of noise and other damaging agents on the auditory physiology. Discusses prevention, screening, identification, and management of occupational and recreational hearing loss. Considers noise measurement and monitoring. Addresses local, national and global initiatives and legislation regarding hearing health.
SLHS 7554 - Audiometric Instrumentation and Calibration
Introduces students to the basic concepts of electroacoustic transduction, and demonstrates the application of these concepts to the measurement and calibration of audiometric instrumentation. Students will become familiar with standard measurement equipment including multimeters, oscilloscopes, and sound level meters; and will become familiar with calibration standards for instruments including the audiometer, tympanometer, and electrophysiological amplifiers.
SLHS 7714 - Advanced Topics in Amplification
Spring 2021 / Spring 2023
Discusses advanced issues in the design and fitting of hearing aid technology, including advanced signal processing, outcomes assessment, evidence-based practice and specialized fitting protocols for pediatric and geriatric populations. Current research is integrated with clinical cased studies to guide the development of evidence-based practice in hearing aid fittings.
