Hydro Med Inc Announces an Important Advance in Tinnitus Therapy
Date:4/24/2013

Mission Hills, Ca. (PRWEB) April 24, 2013

Thanks to the efforts of the American Tinnitus Association, various research projects have been funded seeking a cure for tinnitus. But, there are barriers to this research:
a.    Research in animals is hampered. Mice can’t tell you if they have ringing in the ears.
b.    The MRI or the blood tests can’t identify tinnitus
c.    Even the most respected therapies depend on the patient reporting subjective symptoms.

Because doctors can’t objectify tinnitus, they use various questionnaires to gauge the symptoms. One is the Tinnitus Handicap Inventory. Another is called the Tinnitus Outcomes Assessment. These ask about sleep problems, impairment of social and work activities, and the need for medications. Unfortunately, this is like diagnosing a toothache by the number of days someone is absent from school

In the publication Trends in Amplification, 2008, the authors stress the need to report on the actual tinnitus. The audiologist examines the hearing and tinnitus using an audiometer. This device presents sounds to the patient and they indicate if they hear the sound and at what volume. The audiologist measures the pitch, volume, masking and inhibition of the tinnitus.

    What is the pitch of the tinnitus? Various sounds of human hearing are presented to the patient. They are asked to “match” or tell which test sound resembles or matches their own tinnitus. That pitch is recorded.

    What is the loudness of the tinnitus? Is it faint or loud? The audiologist suggests various volumes to record that volume.
.
    What does it take to mask the tinnitus? At a certain volume from the audiologist’s audiometer, the patient no longer hears his or her own tinnitus. It is masked by the outside sound from the audiom
