Abstract
(DE)
Um das Resthörvermögen bei für ein Cochlea-Implantat (CI) indizierten Patienten zu nutzen, ist es vorteilhaft, die elektrische Stimulation des Cochlea-Implantats um eine akustische Stimulation zu ergänzen. Ein solches Resthörvermögen ist üblicherweise in einem Frequenzbereich unterhalb von einem Kilohertz vorhanden.
(EN)
In order to exploit the residual hearing in patients indicated for a cochlear implant (CI), the electrical stimulation of the cochlear implant is advantageously complemented by an acoustic stimulation. Such residual hearing is usually present in a frequency range below one kilohertz.
(FR)
Afin d'utiliser l'audition résiduelle d'un patient, chez lequel un implant cochléaire est indiqué, il est avantageux de compléter la stimulation électrique de l'implant cochléaire par une stimulation acoustique. Une telle audition résiduelle est présente habituellement dans une plage de fréquences inférieure à un kilohertz.
