About The Book

The term ‘tinnitus’ is searched over 110,000+ times every month. Unfortunately, much of the information readily available through internet searches is inaccurate, whereas most evidence-based information is only available through peer-reviewed journal articles often containing dense scientific jargon. Tinnitus: Advances in Prevention, Assessment, and Management aims to bridge this gap by providing up-to-date and evidence-based information on tinnitus prevention, assessment, and management. Presented in a quick, easy-to-read format, this text offers a practical and handy resource for busy practitioners and health profession students, as well as individuals with bothersome tinnitus.

Each section contains short chapters providing accessible overviews of research related to tinnitus and hyperacusis. Section I delves into various approaches for prevention of hearing loss and tinnitus. Section II covers tinnitus assessment, while Section III introduces readers to a range of tinnitus management solutions. Section IV focuses solely on recent advances in assessment and management of hyperacusis and other disorders of decreased sound tolerance. Authors of Section V review recent tinnitus-related developments, including social media use and COVID-19. The final section consists of interesting real-life case studies involving patients with bothersome tinnitus.
