Back to Basics: More than First-Fit Fittings (PD102503)

Presenter(s): Steven Thomas Kulsar
Course Description

This session focuses on the use of in-situ measures and development of patient amplification prescriptions. The importance of in-situ measures is widely overlooked or misunderstood. Dissecting the benefits of this and other built-in manufacturer software features will provide opportunity for significant improvement in fitting outcomes and patient satisfaction over conventional first-fit settings. Proper implementation and use of these features should decrease time and effort in fitting and counseling, and decrease the need for repeat visits for re-programming.

This course is a recorded technical session from the 2021 ASHA Convention Virtual Library (session 4040V).

Learning Outcomes
You will be able to:

  • Apply in-situ measures in new and repeat fittings to maximize patient satisfaction 
  • Define differences in in-situ measures and conventional air-conduction measures used for first-fit calculation
  • Break down a fitting session by critically thinking beyond first-fit and acclimatization
