The median values of serum retinol and plasma zinc did not differ significantly between elderly with hearing loss in the speech frequency
compared to the normal hearing controls.
Oncology was notified of these early unilateral hearing changes outside the speech frequency range and their decision was to continue with the second cisplatin dose.
0 dB prediction error when tested against actual pure-tone threshold shifts observed in the functional speech frequency range .
A natural extension of this approach we intend to develop is a DPOAE model of behavioral thresholds in the speech frequency range.
Further work to accomplish includes expanding the speech frequency prediction model to include frequencies below 2,000 Hz.
The consonant sounds that differentiate one word from another (s-t-th-f) are at the upper end of the speech frequency
and are affected before the broad "flat" vowel sounds (a, e, i, o, u).
This electrode with increasing stiffness could be passed around the basal turn to lie opposite the speech frequency region (Figure 13).
The effect is greater for high frequencies and is approximately 7 dB in the speech frequency range.
The ability of Iowa/Nucleus Hybrid patients to combine acoustic information with shifted electrically delivered information is perhaps not surprising given that previous studies have demonstrated that traditional long-electrode users can adapt over time to an overall shift in the place-frequency mapping when the entire speech frequency
range is shifted by changing the speech processor maps .
