The 2018 NIH report on hearing shows that older adults are likely to develop hearing loss with age. This poster examines the relationship between aging & hearing aid experience, outcomes, and real-ear measures. Over 600 veterans were included in this project to determine trends in RECD measurements, HHIE outcomes, IOI-HA Outcomes based on patient age, audiometric configuration, and hearing aid experience. The results will help attendees gain better understanding of expected hearing aid outcomes as patients age.
