Cochlear implants offer substantial benefit for children and adults with severe to profound hearing loss. However, for recipients to realize their full potential with the device, it must be carefully programmed. Programming Cochlear Implants, a volume in the Core Clinical Concepts in Audiology Series, offers practical guidance for clinicians who program or plan to program cochlear implants, introducing the basics of cochlear implant programming and continuing through advanced programming techniques. Manufacturer-specific information is provided, and case studies are presented to illustrate cochlear implant programming fundamentals and strategies. Specific topics covered include: basics of cochlear implant terminology and programming, clinical protocols for cochlear implant management, programming considerations for bilateral cochlear implant recipients, troubleshooting during the programming process, device-specific programming techniques, basic use of objective measures to set cochlear implant programs, use of FM and assistive listening devices with cochlear implants, and management of the difficult-to-program recipient. This book serves as a practical guide for clinicians who are providing services to cochlear implant users and also as a teaching tool for graduate-level students.
