SIG 6 Perspectives on Hearing and Hearing Disorders: Research and Diagnostics, August 2006, Vol. 10, 1. doi:10.1044/hhd10.1.1
In the previous issue of Division 6 Perspectives (2005; Volume 9, Number 1), we considered the topic of ototoxicity. Five groups of experts explored issues related to ototoxicity including its mechanisms, the specific impact on the hearing and balance systems, and how these effects are monitored. We hope that you were able to read that issue and that it facilitated your awareness and deepened your insights regarding ototoxicity. We perseverate on that theme here.
A subset of investigators who contributed to the first issue has returned to provide additional information. Rather than discussing ototoxicity per se, the group from the Henry Ford Health System (Ahmad, Tuper, and Seidman) tackles the topic of otoprotective agents. In this issue’s first article, the authors offer a basic understanding of the preventive and therapeutic strategies to combat ototoxicity. High-frequency audiometry provides a more sensitive measure of ototoxic effects than do conventional pure-tone methods. Calibration of test equipment for assessing high-frequency hearing thresholds is challenging.
