Between 150 and 200 deaf children are born in the Netherlands each year. Deafness has major consequences for these children’s development, as it deprives them of access to spoken language. Since the 1990s, deaf children have been able to have a cochlear implant (CI), which enables them to experience sound. The questions central to this thesis...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to evaluate the benefit that listeners obtain from visually presented output from an automatic speech recognition (ASR) system during listening to speech in noise. DESIGN: Auditory-alone and audiovisual speech reception thresholds (SRTs) were measured. The SRT is defined as the speech-to-noise ratio at which...

Aim: As part of a future national neonatal hearing screening programme in the Netherlands, automated auditory brainstem response (AABR) hearing screening was implemented in seven neonatal intensive care units (NICUs). The objective was to evaluate key outcomes of this programme: participation rate, first stage success rate, pass/referral rates,...

Objective - To compare the cost effectiveness of various strategies for neonatal hearing screening by estimating the cost per hearing impaired child detected. Design - Cost analyses with a simulation model, including a multivariate sensitivity analysis. Comparisons of the cost per child detected were made for: screening method (automated...

Children with Down's syndrome have an increased risk of congenital anomalies and additional medical problems. These can be treated but are often seen as part of the syndrome and not as the cause of developmental retardation. Based on the current level of knowledge, specific medical tests and evaluations are recommended. The reasons for these...

Rats were exposed to ethyl benzene at 0, 300, 400 and 550 ppm for 8 hours/day for 5 consecutive days. Three to six weeks after the exposure, auditory function was tested by measuring compound action potentials (CAP) in the frequency range of 1-24 kHz and 2f1-f2 distortion product otoacoustic emissions (DPOAEs) in the frequency range of 4-22.6...

The Youth Health Care guideline 'Early screening for hearing impairment, ages 0-19 years' draws the attention of all parties involved to the case finding of, notably, perceptive hearing loss; it helps workers in the Youth Health Care argue their referrals and improve the next steps in the process. Referrals always aim at ruling out perceptive...

Exposure to organic solvents has been shown to be ototoxic in animals and there is evidence that these solvents can induce hearing loss in humans. In this study, the effects of inhalation of the possibly ototoxic solvent ethyl benzene on the cochlear function and morphology were evaluated using three complementary techniques: (1) reflex...

Lawaaitrauma ontstaan vooral tijdens de uitoefening van een beroep. Wanneer men van dag tot dag in lawaai werkt, bouwt zich het gehoorverües geleidelijk op. Volgens een brochure die in 1975 door de Commissie voor Arbeidsgeneeskundig Onderzoek TNO werd uitgebracht, waren er toen bij één van de twee Nederlanders werkzaam in de industrie tekenen...
