Clinical effectiveness of cochlear implants

Statement 7:
Cochlear implants significantly improve speech recognition in both quiet and moderate noise in adults with bilateral severe, profound, or moderate sloping to profound sensorineural hearing loss; these gains in speech recognition are likely to remain stable over time.

Statement 8:
Clinical Effectiveness of CIsBoth word and sentence recognition tests should be used to evaluate speech recognition performance following cochlear implantation.

Statement 9:
Cochlear implants significantly improve overall and hearing-specific quality of life in adults with bilateral severe, profound, or moderate sloping to profound sensorineural hearing loss.

Statement 10:
Adults who are eligible for cochlear implants should receive the implant as soon as possible to maximize post-implantation speech recognition.

Cochlear implants significantly improve life quality in people with hard of hearing problems.
