To follow up on our recent article about the importance of RECD for conducting hearing aid fittings with minimal contact, we’ve recorded a two-part podcast on the same topic titled RECD: Couplers and Conundrums.
Both parts of this podcast feature subject matter experts Julie Renshaw, M.A., CCC-A, Regional Sales Manager of e3 Gordon Stowe Indianapolis, and John Pumford, Au.D., Director of Audiology and Education at Audioscan. Together, they discuss the basics of the RECD measurement, the role of various couplers in complying with ANSI S3.46-2013, why using RECD to convert an audiogram from dB HL to dB SPL is beneficial, and much more.
Part 1:Back to Basics
In Part 1, Julie and John discuss the basics of the RECD measurement. This includes how far RECD has come since its inception, how modern technology has improved RECD measurement, and how RECD is applicable to patients of all ages. Other topics of discussion include why using RECD to convert an audiogram from dB HL to dB SPL is beneficial, what the purpose of simulated REM is, how often the RECD should be measured, and much more.
