AUD 782 - Audiological Management in Heritable Syndromes

8 weeks/2 credit hours

This course covers the wide diversity of genetic syndromes wherein hearing loss and/or aberrant audiovestibular system (AVS) function is involved, including those conditions in which audiovestibular compromise may not be the primary or most obvious stigmata. Review of basic inheritance patterns, (elementary genetics) including Mendelian transmission together with pertinent embryology is covered. Current genetic concepts and terminology are provided together with discussion of certain organ systems’ association with audiovestibular system impairments/deficits. Further material includes appropriate professional language in syndromology and audiology, insights for expanding professional patient bases and the need to utilize our audiovestibular probes to best highlight the audiovestibular deficits seen in conjunction with the patient’s particular syndrome.
