Communication and Noise in the Operating Room, Yu.J, Lippmann.E

Background: Communication serves as a central component to patient safety and efficiency in the operating room. Sentinel event data from The Joint Commission in 2013 identified failures of communication during surgery as one of the leading root causes of error and poor patient outcomes. Recent research on hearing-critical jobs has advocated for functional hearing assessment [...]

3-Dimensional Modeling Using CT Scans: Understanding Anatomical Structures and Spacing in the Region of the Eustachian Tube ,Redleaf.M

Background: Eustachian tube (ET) dilation to improve middle ear ventilation has been practiced in Europe for several years. ET dilation is also now an approved medical procedure in the United States as well. To date, there have been no clinical complications reported in humans, and research involving cadaveric models have reported no issues of trauma [...]

The Use of CT Imaging for Diagnosis of Otosclerosis and Ossicular Changes, Redleaf.M, Mocan Ozgen.B

Background: Middle ear disease and otosclerosis (OS) are a common cause of progressive hearing loss. A positive family history and classic audiogram findings are normally used to diagnose otosclerosis (OS). The findings are later confirmed intraoperatively. Imaging with Computed Tomography (CT) is becoming more popular preoperatively in order to confirm a diagnosis and aid in [...]

Hearing Compromised Chicago Public Students: An Outcomes Study, Redleaf.M

Background: The ability to hear significantly impacts a child’s learning experience. The prevalence of hearing loss among children in the U. S. has increased according to a recent analysis of NHANES data. Hearing is routinely screened in U.S. elementary schools and may be mandated by State law, as is the case in Illinois, but only [...]
