Prospective crossover evaluation of four methods of clinical management of tinnitus.
Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg. 1984 Aug; 92(4):448-53.OH

Abstract

This article summarizes data obtained from 34 tinnitus-afflicted patients who participated in and completed a prospective crossover evaluation of four methods of clinical management of tinnitus. The methods included a 2-week trial with each of the following: a tinnitus masker, a tinnitus instrument (a combination device consisting of a tinnitus masker and a hearing aid), a hearing aid, and conventional environmental controls. The relative effectiveness of each method of treatment was assessed by interview. The data presented summarize respondents' preferences for each method of treatment. Use of a tinnitus masker, tinnitus instrument, and hearing aid is related to stability of auditory thresholds. Comments are made on our experience with clinical management of the patient afflicted with tinnitus, and observations are offered on continued investigation in this area.
