EAS Outcomes
Share |

EAS Outcomes: Electrical Acoustic Stimulation (EAS) combines hearing aid and cochlear implant technology to meet the needs of individuals who have useful residual hearing in the lower frequencies. EAS users typically perform better in background noise, have improved speech perception and report enhanced music appreciation relative to traditional cochlear implants. Electrode design and surgical approach are intended to preserve residual hearing to allow successful outcomes with Electric Acoustic devices (also called “Hybrid”).

The following presentations were given during CI2016, Toronto and include the following topics: performance in children, long-term outcomes and subjective benefit.

The mission of the American Cochlear Implant (ACI) Alliance is to advance access to the gift of hearing provided by cochlear implantation through research, advocacy and awareness.
