Event Title

P-33 Tinnitus: A Comparative Study of Patients Who Report Tinnitus Subsequent to Noise Exposure or Head Injury

Presenter Information

Gillian Jurek, Andrews University

Location

Buller Hall Lobby

Start Date

3-8-2019 2:30 PM

Description

The purpose of this study is to examine initial tinnitus evaluation results and the level of support needed to habituate tinnitus in patients with traumatic brain injuries and noise-induced hearing loss. The study also looks at whether or not the tinnitus habituated in patients who underwent treatment. Tinnitus is the perception of sound when no actual auditory stimulus is present. Common causes of tinnitus are prolonged exposure to noise and injury to the head and/or neck. Correlations will be evaluated in an effort to provide clinicians with more accurate prognosis for tinnitus treatment based on initial testing results.
