Hi Everyone,

I'm looking for some advice on a recent case:

Woman 72 yoa presents a low frequency conductive hearing loss, probably the
start of otosclerosis, who wants to try amplification.  Left ear is
affected more than the right and wants monaural trial:

	AC	BC
250	45	5
500	40	10
750	35	
1000	15	15
2000	20	15
4000	25	20
8000	30

I know that she could probably "live" with this, but she really wants to
try something now.

Suggestions recommended on:

1. Style: BTE, ITE, CIC, other ?

2. For BTE: Earmold style, CFA ?

3. Any recommendation on different circuits ?

Jeff
