İşitme Cihazı Memnuniyetinde Cihaz Kullanım Süresinin Rolü

Year 2019, Volume 6, Issue 3, 243 - 253, 30.12.2019

Abstract

Amaç: Bu çalışmanın amacı, bilateral işitme cihazı kullanıcılarının günlük ve yaşam boyu işitme cihazı kullanım süresi ile işitme kaybı derecesinin işitme cihazı memnuniyetine olan etkisini araştırmaktır.

Gereç ve Yöntem: 18-49 yaş arası 38 bilateral işitme kullanıcısı birey (22 K, 16 E; Ort. Yaş: 32.8) çalışmaya katılmıştır. Çalışmaya katılan bireylere Günlük Hayatta Amplifikasyon Memnuniyeti Anketi” doldurtulmuş ve anketin ikinci sayfasındaki özelliklere göre gruplandırılarak değerlendirme yapılmıştır. Değerlendirme bu anketin “Pozitif Etki”, “Servis ve Fiyat”, “Negatif Özellikler” ve “Kişisel İmaj” alt boyutlarında ayrı ayrı ve anket toplam skoruna göre yapılmıştır.

Bulgular: İşitme güçlüğü seviyesine göre en iyi T-SADL skorları orta derece işitme güçlüğünde gözlenmiştir (p<0.017). Hayat boyu işitme cihazı deneyimine göre T-SADL skorları pozitif etki ve servis ve fiyat alt parametrelerinde süre arttıkça azalma göstermiştir (p<0.008). Günlük işitme cihazı kullanım süresi arttıkça T-SADL skorları servis ve fiyat alt parametresi hariç diğer tüm alt parametrelerde ve toplam skorda artış göstermiştir (p<0.017).

Sonuç: Çalışmanın sonucunda, işitme cihazı kullanım memnuniyetini etkileyen faktörler arasında işitme cihazlarıyla ilgili deneyim süresi, günlük kullanım oranları ve işitme kaybının derecesinin önemli değişkenler olduğu görülmüştür.

The Role of Hearing Aid Use Time in Hearing Aid Satisfaction

Year 2019, Volume 6, Issue 3, 243 - 253, 30.12.2019

Abstract

Objective: The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of daily and lifetime hearing aid usage and degree of hearing loss on hearing aid satisfaction of bilateral hearing aid users.

Materials and Methods: 38 bilateral hearing users (22 F, 16 M; Mean Age: 32.8) aged between 18-49 years participated in the study. The participants were filled in the Amplification Satisfaction Survey in Daily Life and grouped according to the characteristics on the second page of the questionnaire. The evaluation was conducted separately in the “Positive Effect”, “Service and Price”, Negative Features” and “Personal Image” subscales of the questionnaire and according to the total score of the questionnaire.

Results: The best SADL-Turkish scores according to the level of hearing difficulty were observed in moderate hearing impairment (p<0.017). According to the lifetime hearing aid experience, SADL-Turkish scores showed a decreased as usage time increased “positive effect” and service and price” sub-parameters (p<0.008). As daily hearing aid usage time increased, T-SADL scores increased in all sub-parameters and total score except service and price sub-parameters (p<0.017).

Conclusion: As a result of the study, it was seen that the duration of experience, daily use rates and the degree of hearing loss were important variables among the factors affecting the satisfaction of hearing aids.
