    Default hearing aid on non cochlear implant side

    Hi

    Can a person with a single side ci wear a hearing on the non ci ear? Or does this cause problems?

    The reason I ask is that my friend who is only funded one ci is toally deaf on the other side and I fears for safety. What shes crossing a road and doesn't hear the a car.

    Yes, im almost certain she can. Speak to a audiologist about it. I'm sure they would recommend the best solution for your friend.

    I use a CI and a hearing aid both and am very happy with the perfomance. I will say that in crossing streets it is often necessary to look both ways. The sounds usually come in louder on my CI side than my hearing aid side.

    I fitted a lot of Hi with CI, key here is to balance both. It does provide better localization

    I have 2 of the BP 100's One for each side Bilateral and a BTE HA for the right ear.

    It is so awsome to hear some one speaking to me that is on my left side.

    I also have to get use to hearing things on my left side. I never knew my there was so much talking going on around me until I wore my BP 100 on my left side.

    I can and will use any hardware I can get my hands on to hear the world around me.
    Best regards

    John

    That is probably because your son is getting on so well with his ci. In my early days of wearing my new ci I found that my hearing aid became rubbish but I persisted in wearing it because I could still hear low frequency sounds naturally. Today after two years both ears and their instruments have balanced nicely.
