  • The contribution of genetics to presbycusis (see below) is also becoming better understood. In addition to GJB2, several other nonsyndromic genes are associated with hearing loss that progresses with age. Sensitivity to aminoglycoside ototoxicity can be maternally transmitted through a mitochondrial mutation. Susceptibility to noise-induced hearing loss may also be genetically determined. There are 400 syndromic forms of hearing loss.

  • Presbycusis (age-associated hearing loss) is the most common cause of sensorineural hearing loss in adults. In the early stages, it is characterized by symmetric, gentle to sharply sloping high-frequency hearing loss. With progression, the hearing loss involves all frequencies. More importantly, the hearing impairment is associated with significant loss in clarity. There is a loss of discrimination for phonemes, recruitment (abnormal growth of loudness), and particular difficulty in understanding speech in noisy environments.

  • Shortly before I began research for this book on alternative and complementary medicine, I informed a dear friend of the pending task. His first comment was “How many volumes?” Those three words would haunt me throughout the project. One book hardly scratches the surface; therefore my objectives were to compile up-to-date information on and explanations of as many alternative, complementary, or integrative healing methods as possible and to present them in an unbiased and accessible A-to-Z format.

  • In the same way we face major societal challenges in healthcare cost, quality, and access, individual HDOs face equally complex and demanding challenges. The envi- ronment is extremely complex, influenced by constantly shifting political, social, tech- nical, and financial trends. U.S. healthcare provides fragmented services that include simultaneously competitive and cooperative participants. For example, in many hos- pitals the physicians who admit patients function as independent contractors of the hospital and as such are not employees of the hospital.

  • This is an argument for being cautious about interpreting the results on topic based studies as the research on whole-school approaches, while less comprehensive to date, is very promising in that it suggests that a whole-school approach is more likely to be effective than a classroom-only approach in terms of a range of outcomes. There is clearly a need for more research on whole-school approaches to help us understand how this works and why it may be the case.

  • Logic may be defined as the science that evaluates arguments. All of us encounter arguments in our day-to-day experience. We read them in books and newspapers, hear them on television, and formulate them when communicating with friends and associates. The aim of logic is to develop a system of methods and principles that we may use as criteria for evaluating the arguments of others and as guides in constructing arguments of our own.

  • Recurrent unilateral labyrinthine dysfunction, in association with signs and symptoms of cochlear disease (progressive hearing loss and tinnitus), is usually due to Ménière's disease (Chap. 30). When auditory manifestations are absent, the term vestibular neuronitis denotes recurrent monosymptomatic vertigo. Transient ischemic attacks of the posterior cerebral circulation (vertebrobasilar insufficiency) only infrequently cause recurrent vertigo without concomitant motor, sensory, visual, cranial nerve, or cerebellar signs (Chap. 364).

  • Serous Otitis Media In serous otitis media (otitis media with effusion), fluid is present in the middle ear for an extended period and in the absence of signs and symptoms of infection. In general, acute effusions are self-limited; most resolve in 2–4 weeks. In some cases, however (in particular after an episode of acute otitis media), effusions can persist for months. These chronic effusions are often associated with a significant hearing loss in the affected ear.

  • Let’s start with the question about hormones that Extension specialists and agents hear from the public. “Why do you add hormones into chicken feed?” The simple truth is hormones are not added to poultry feeds. This fallacy is fueled by inaccurate statements made by The World Health Organization that apparently has issued a plea to stop giving growth hormones to chickens grown for human consumption.
