Everyone can have difficulty in hearing their friends at a noisy café. People with hearing aids, and especially those with cochlear implants, often find this harder than most. This research compared the ability to block out background noise in people without hearing loss with people who have cochlear implants. We were looking for an “attentional filter”, which represents the ability to filter out unwanted background noise when paying attention to specific sounds. We found that only two out of six tested cochlear implant users showed an attentional filter. The lack of an attentional filter in most of the cochlear implant users may cause a part of their difficulty in understanding speech in background noise. However, now that we know that some cochlear implant users do show an attentional filter, we can work to understand why this is the case, and whether we can train the attentional filter in all cochlear implant users.

This study showed that predominant breastfeeding for >6 months is protective against otitis media in children at three years of age but that the protective effect does not extend to children at six years of age, where other social and environmental factors may be stronger predictors of otitis media.

There have been few population-based studies of hearing loss in diabetes in well characterized participants, and none in people with higher than normal blood sugar but not diabetes (prediabetes). In participants in the Busselton Health Ageing Survey aged < 60 years, increasing abnormal blood sugar levels (dysglycaemia) was associated with increasing mid-range hearing loss after adjustment for other recognized risk factors for hearing impairment. There was no relationship between dysglycaemia and hearing loss in participants aged ≥ 60 years. Abnormal glucose tolerance may independently accelerate the onset of hearing loss in younger people with diabetes.

Published online: 30 Nov 2016. doi: 10.1080/14670100.2016.1240427

The function of a cochlear implant is to restore hearing. To show whether it is working effectively, the electrode of the implant can also be used to test how well the implant signals are transmitted to auditory nerve, the nerve that transmits signals to the brain. This study was conducted at various international centres. It showed that care must be taken when analysing recorded signals as they can differ depending on which part of the implant electrode is used to stimulate the nerve and its intensity.

Recipients of a cochlear implant require skills and knowledge to maintain the external components of their device. This study developed the Cochlear Implant Management Skills (CIMS) survey. The CIMS survey allows an audiologist to systematically go through the primary skills required, with the recipient demonstrating their skills. The study showed that the CIMS survey is sensitive to identifying gaps in skills as well as an increase in skills following retraining. The CIMS is now used in clinics internationally.

This study used the information collected by the Lions Hearing Foundation (WA)’s Hearing Screening Bus. Data of over 2000 people attending metropolitan and rural screenings were included. We showed that a self-report of hearing difficulties for those over 60 years of age will be almost 90% correct in identifying people with a significant hearing loss. There was more hearing loss in rural areas. We also found that hearing aid use in those who would benefit from hearing aids was particularly low, at less than 4%. Primary health care services should use a self-report of hearing loss to identify those with a hearing loss, and access to hearing aid rehabilitation must be improved.

Tinnitus is a common and at times debilitating condition. Cognitive function, the ability to think, remember and reason, is likely to be affected. To determine the scientific evidence of the impact of tinnitus on cognitive function, we systematically reviewed and analysed 18 studies.

We found that tinnitus appears to have an impact on some aspects of cognitive function by affecting the executive control of attention, for example problem solving and attention. It also appears that anxiety, depression and hearing loss, which often accompanies tinnitus, may increase cognitive difficulties. Therefore, clinical management of people with invasive tinnitus and cognitive difficulties needs to be tailored to each patient’s specific concerns. Additionally, patients with both tinnitus and hearing loss should be encouraged to pursue hearing loss management.

This study looked at the incidence of ear infections in young children. It was the first in Australia to assess the prevalence and causes of this common childhood condition. The study has uncovered a range of risk factors that contribute to the problem reoccurring. It showed that children with allergies, older siblings, those in day care and those who were not exclusively breastfed for the first 4 months were at higher risk of developing ear disease (also known as Otitis Media). Otitis Media is estimated to affect over 90% of Aussie kids before their second birthday.
