The Nonfunctioning Hearing Aid: A Case of Double Jeopardy.
Smedley, Thayne; Plapinger, Donald
Volta Review, v90 n2 p77-84 Feb-Mar 1988
Insertion of a dead hearing aid in 15 otologically normal children (ages 4-6) resulted in a mean hearing loss of 25-30 dB. Results suggest that sensorineural hearing losses of 50 dB may increase to 80 dB with nonfunctioning aids in place, compounding a hearing-impaired child's existing communication and educational difficulties.
