Abstract:
The prevalence of dizziness among CI users, from the literature reviewed in this project, ranges from 35 to 50 percent. There are many published tools of assessment for dizziness. However, no specific tool has been designed to evaluate the cochlear implant users prior to implantation. From extensive analysis of post-operative and pre-operative literature on cochlear implant patients and the vestibular disorders they many experience, a screening questionnaire was developed. The screening questionnaire would be given to cochlear implant patients prior to implantation. This could help audiologists better determine which cochlear implant candidates are more at risk for post-operative dizziness. From the screening questionnaire designed in this project, we hope to implement the questionnaire in a clinical setting where its effectiveness can be tested. ( en )

Assessing Dizziness In Cochlear Implant Patients 1 Abstract The prevalence of dizziness among CI users, from the literature reviewed in this project, ranges from 35 to 50 percent. There are many published to ols of assessment for dizziness. H owever no specific tool has been designed to evaluate the cochlear implant users prior to implantation From extensive analysis of post operative and pre operative literature on cochlear implant patients and the vestibular disorders they may experience, a screening questionnaire was developed. The screening quest ionnaire would be given to cochlear implant patients prior to implantation. This could help audiologists better determine which cochlear implant candidates are more at risk for post operative dizziness. From the screening questionnaire designed in the proj ect, we hope to implement the questionnaire in a clinical setting where its effectiveness can be tested.
