We are excited to announce the upcoming availability of two new courses at Meduc8ion: Real Ear Measurements (REMs) and Tympanometry. These courses are specifically designed for audiologists and ear care professionals, offering essential skills to enhance the quality of care provided to clients. Read on to discover the benefits of incorporating Real Ear Measurements and Tympanometry into your practice.
REMs: Unlocking Precision in Hearing Aid Calibration
Real Ear Measurements (REMs) are a gold standard procedure that objectively verifies the frequency response of a hearing aid in the ear canal. By enabling you to tailor the prescription to the unique characteristics of an individual’s ear, REMs ensure precise calibration, effectively functioning as ‘hearing aid verification.’ This allows you to ensure accurate and customised prescriptions for your clients, providing personalised solutions that maximise their hearing experience. In addition, REMs enhance the quality of care you provide by reducing the likelihood of unnecessary follow-up appointments. This means that your clients can benefit from an accurate prescription sooner, saving them time and ensuring their satisfaction with your services.
By streamlining the fitting process and reducing the need for multiple adjustments, REMs also maximise your clinic’s efficiency, allowing more time for new hearing tests and potentially increasing your revenue. Moreover, offering real ear measurements sets your clinic apart and demonstrates your commitment to delivering the highest standards of care, thus increasing client satisfaction, and helping you stay ahead of the competition.
Tympanometry: Advancing Aural Diagnostics
Tympanometry is a valuable medical test designed to assess the functioning of the middle ear. Unlike otoscopy, which only provides a visual examination of the tympanic membrane, tympanometry offers quantitative data that complements qualitative observations. By incorporating tympanometry into your practice, you can perform comprehensive audiometric evaluations. This skill allows for a more thorough understanding of your clients’ hearing health, enabling you to provide more precise advice and recommendations.
Additionally, tympanometry gives you the ability to detect potential ossicular issues or fluid behind the eardrum. This provides valuable insights that contribute to accurate diagnoses and guide appropriate treatments or referrals. By leveraging the tympanogram results, you can offer tailored recommendations that address specific middle ear conditions, enhancing the overall aural care you provide.
Moreover, offering tympanometry as part of your services allows you to stand out among your peers by showcasing your commitment to providing holistic care. This strengthens your clinic’s reputation and attracts more clients seeking comprehensive and advanced audiological services.
