New Study Improves Understanding of Tinnitus Perception by Patients
Date:11/19/2013

San Jose, CA (PRWEB) November 19, 2013

In October 2013, SoundCure announced the results of a patient study quantifying how patients with tinnitus (ringing in the ears) "hypermonitor" their tinnitus, the neurological phenomenon of perceiving tinnitus to be much louder than it is when measured objectively. These study results are highly statistically significant, and confirm that most patients seeking treatment suffer from an inaccurate perception of their tinnitus loudness.

For tinnitus sufferers, the potential "over perception" of tinnitus as very loud is considered more bothersome than perception of it as soft or not perceiving it at all. The ability to quantify this sensitivity gives both the patient and the clinician insight into the condition. This data offers a valuable tool to the clinician for patient counseling and explaining the potential long term benefits of sound therapy to address this hypermonitoring through habituation.

In this study, 119 tinnitus patients were evaluated using the SoundCure Serenade tinnitus treatment system. Patients were first asked to rate the loudness of their tinnitus on a scale of 1 (soft) to 10 (loud) resulting in a subjective loudness score. Then they rated a series of external tones, pitch-matched to their tinnitus, presented at different volumes. One of these tones was presented at a volume exactly matching their perceived tinnitus loudness. The ratings of the self-assessed tinnitus volume and its external equivalents were then compared.

A ranking of the tinnitus as louder than the external equivalent sound is an indication of hypermonitoring, the subconscious process of erroneously perce
