Overview

Cochlear Implants: Audiologic Management and Considerations for Implantable Hearing Devices provides comprehensive coverage of the audiological principles and practices pertaining to cochlear implants and other implantable hearing technologies. This is the first and only book that is written specifically for audiologists and that exhaustively addresses the details involved with the assessment and management of cochlear implant technology. Additionally, this book provides a through overview of hybrid cochlear implants, implantable bone conduction hearing technology, middle ear implantable implants, and auditory brainstem implants.

Key Features:

  • Previously, audiology students and clinicians would need to purchase multiple textbooks to gain access to the comprehensive information contained in this book.
  • Each chapter features an abundance of figures supporting the clinical practices and principles discussed in the text and enabling students and clinicians to more easily understand and apply the material to clinical practice.
  • The information in this book is evidence based and whenever possible is supported by up-to-date peer-reviewed research.
  • This textbook provides comprehensive coverage of complex information and sophisticated technology in a manner that is student-friendly and in an easily understandable narrative form.
  • The concepts covered in the narrative text are presented clearly and then reinforced through additional learning aids including case studies and video examples.
  • Full color design with numerous figures and illustrations.


Cochlear Implants is the perfect choice for graduate level courses covering implantable hearing technologies because the book provides a widespread yet intricate description of every implantable hearing technology available for clinical use today. This textbook is an invaluable resource and reference for both audiology graduate students and clinical audiologists who work with implantable hearing devices.

Furthermore, this book supplements the evidence-based clinical information provided for a variety of implantable hearing devices with case studies and clinical videos demonstrating basic management procedures and practices accessible on a PluralPlus companion website.
