The purpose of this seminar is to explain the concepts behind masking in plain terms that will be easy to digest. We will go through specific case studies in both air and none conduction testing to show procedures step by step.

Learner Outcomes are:                                                                                                                                               a. Describe the general principles behind Masking.

“Fitting Methods & Real Ear Measurement.” Course 149-17-004  2 CEU
Presenter: Dr. Ted Venema, Ph.D. We’ve come along way from the early days of verifying hearing instrument fitting performance in a soundfield. The days of real ear measurement (REM) are far behind us; insertion gain is a goner, and is now the proverbial rear view mirror. It is now all about measuring output with the hearing aid placed “in-situ” or in place. Aids are literally “mapped onto a client’s existing residual dynamic range and plainly displayed on a computer screen. This talk with take us on a journey through fitting method evolution and REM development from Sam Lybarger’s 1/2 gain rule days to ours. The end goal for this seminar is to highlight the benefits of REM for counseling patients.
Learner Outcomes are:                                                                                                                                               a. Outline the reasoning for the “spinal cord of all fitting methods”(1/2 gain rule) in the first place.
b. Trace the evolution of fitting methods and the development of REM.
c.Appreciate the value of REM as an important tool for counseling patients.
