#1
REVIEW
Leonard P Rybak, Debashree Mukherjea, Vickram Ramkumar
Cisplatin is a highly effective antineoplastic agent used to treat solid tumors. Unfortunately, the administration of this drug leads to significant side effects, including ototoxicity, nephrotoxicity, and neurotoxicity. This review addresses the mechanisms of cisplatin-induced ototoxicity and various strategies tested to prevent this distressing adverse effect. The molecular pathways underlying cisplatin ototoxicity are still being investigated. Cisplatin enters targeted cells in the cochlea through the action of several transporters...

REVIEW
Debra Abel
Because of the ICD-10 disease coding system transition that occurred in the United States in 2015, coding and billing for services on behalf of patients who experience cochlear and/or vestibular toxicity may be daunting and misunderstood. Coding and billing for any audiology procedure can be compelling; choosing the appropriate codes for these specific patients is critical not only for payment for services rendered but also for the national and global implications, given their utilization is tracked for mortality and morbidity statistics and potential policies...

Ototoxicity refers to the damage to structures and function of the auditory-vestibular system caused by exogenous agents such as pharmaceuticals, chemicals, and ionizing radiation. There are many potentially ototoxic substances. For example, depending on how ototoxicity is defined, there are 200 to 600 medications that can cause damage to hearing and/or balance. Ototoxicity encompasses cochleotoxicity, vestibulotoxicity, and neurotoxicity. A variety of professional disciplines are involved in determining causation, prevention, and management of ototoxic effects...

Colleen G Le Prell
There is an urgent need for otoprotective drug agents. Prevention of noise-induced hearing loss continues to be a major challenge for military personnel and workers in a variety of industries despite the requirements that at-risk individuals use hearing protection devices such as ear plugs or ear muffs. Drug-induced hearing loss is also a major quality-of-life issue with many patients experiencing clinically significant hearing loss as a side effect of treatment with life-saving drug agents such as cisplatin and aminoglycoside antibiotics...

Medical interventions to combat serious infection or malignancies carry significant morbidities, including ototoxicity. While these lifesaving drugs are often necessary to preserve life, the impact on quality of life for survivors is increasingly concerning for families and healthcare providers. Of primary importance for medical prescribers are appropriately sensitive ototoxicity grading scales and audiological monitoring protocols for surveillance for hearing loss. The intent of grading scales is to help communicate complicated audiological information to non-audiologist healthcare providers (such as oncologists) to help them make good decisions with regards to chemotherapy dosing...

REVIEW
Richard E Gans, Grant Rauterkus
The loss of vestibular function, typically bilateral, due to chemical solvents and pharmacological agents is not rare and has been investigated and reported for many years. The successful treatment of bacterial infections and sepsis with IV antibiotics and cancer-fighting drugs like cisplatin makes the decision to use these life-saving drugs less of a debate, despite their potential deleterious effect on balance and equilibrium. The purpose of this article is to provide the reader with an overview of the more common substances found in industry and medicine which may decrease or permanently destroy peripheral and/or central vestibular function...

REVIEW
Sherman G Lord
The need for monitoring hearing and auditory function during drug therapy and other treatments that have the potential to cause hearing loss is well documented. Besides the main purpose of ototoxic monitoring, which is to provide feedback to the attending physician about the effects the treatment is having on the auditory system, it is also helpful in setting expectations for the patient and his/her family about the communication issues that may result from the drug therapy. This article will review tests available to an audiologist, both subjective and objective, that can be used to effectively monitor hearing levels and auditory function during treatment...

REVIEW
Jessica Paken, Cyril D Govender, Mershen Pillay, Vikash Sewram
Cisplatin, an effective antineoplastic drug used in the treatment of many cancers, has ototoxic potential, thus placing cancer patients, receiving this treatment, at risk of hearing loss. It is therefore important for health care professionals managing these patients to be aware of cisplatin's ototoxic properties and its clinical signs to identify patients at risk of developing a hearing impairment. Eighty-five English peer-reviewed articles and two books, from January 1975 to July 2015, were identified from PubMed, ScienceDirect, and EBSCOhost...

REVIEW
Robert M DiSogra
There are over 2,000 drugs with a combined total of over 400 side effects that could result in obtaining inaccurate case history information or inaccurate test results that may lead to misdiagnosing the patient's hearing or vestibular problem. The recommendations that are made could be inappropriate and thus can lead to management errors. A review of the auditory, vestibular, and cognitive side effects of many of the drugs patients take regularly (including drugs that can cause tinnitus) is provided. This article offers suggestions to obtain a more accurate case history...

The purpose of this article is to provide a brief introduction and review regarding basic principles of pharmacology, including terminology and colloquialisms, as well as pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic principles of ototoxic agents. As an audiology practitioner, it is more important than ever to have a working knowledge regarding the known and proposed mechanisms of action for drugs and chemicals with known ototoxicity potential. Additionally, this article provides a discussion regarding the biochemistry behind distribution, which is a major step in determining ototoxic potential of known and potential ototoxins...

More than a decade after Arthur Boothroyd published "Adult Aural Rehabilitation: What Is It and Does It Work?," the four cornerstones of adult aural rehabilitation are re-examined in terms of research that we and others in the field have undertaken. The focus is on novel advances in high-quality research relating to interventions to support self-management for hearing aids and other listening devices (sensory management), knowledge and skill (instruction), auditory and cognitive training (perceptual training), and motivational engagement (counseling)...

Hearing aids are a demonstrated efficacious intervention for age-related hearing loss, and research suggests that good hearing loss self-management skills improve amplification satisfaction and outcomes. One way to foster self-management skills is through the provision of patient education materials. However, many of the available resources related to the management of hearing loss do not account for health literacy and are not suitable for use with adults from varying health literacy backgrounds. To address this issue, we developed the Hearing Loss Toolkit for Self-Management as part of a manualized, best practices hearing intervention used in large clinical trial...

Epidemiologic studies reveal disparities in hearing health care with lower prevalence of hearing aid use among older adults from racial/ethnic minority groups and lower socioeconomic positions. Recent national reports recommend exploring innovative delivery models to increase the accessibility and affordability of hearing health care, particularly for underserved and vulnerable populations. With an expected rise in the prevalence of age-related hearing loss over the next four decades due to a rapidly aging population, the condition is a growing public health imperative...

The Over-the-Counter Hearing Aid Act of 2017 was signed into law in August 2017 and facilitates the introduction of direct-to-consumer sales of hearing aids for adults with mild-to-moderate hearing loss. Among many questions surrounding over-the-counter sales is the ability of users to self-fit amplification. Many studies have conducted self-fitting procedures using guidance materials provided by audiologists. In this pilot, we explore the ability of users to self-adjust personal sound amplification devices using only materials provided by the manufacturer and contrast this with models that involve a hearing professional...

Hearing health care is biomedically focused, device-centered, and clinician-led. There is emerging evidence that these characteristics-all of which are hallmarks of a health care system designed to address acute, rather than chronic, conditions-may contribute to low rates of help-seeking and hearing rehabilitation uptake among adults with hearing loss. In this review, we introduce audiologists to the Chronic Care Model, an organizational framework that describes best-practice clinical care for chronic conditions, and suggest that it may be a viable model for hearing health care to adopt...

REVIEW
Pamela Souza, Eric Hoover
Substantial loss of cochlear function is required to elevate pure-tone thresholds to the severe hearing loss range; yet, individuals with severe or profound hearing loss continue to rely on hearing for communication. Despite the impairment, sufficient information is encoded at the periphery to make acoustic hearing a viable option. However, the probability of significant cochlear and/or neural damage associated with the loss has consequences for sound perception and speech recognition. These consequences include degraded frequency selectivity, which can be assessed with tests including psychoacoustic tuning curves and broadband rippled stimuli...
