Flashcards in SoundWave Deck (20):
1

New features for SoundWave 2.2

UltraZoom
Support for AB myPilot
Support for Phonak ComPilot
Binaural Voice Stream Technology (DuoPhone, ZoomControl, QuickSync, DirectTouch)

2

SW 2.2 New Feature:

CPI-3

provides the ability to connect 2 processors to 1 interface for a quicker, more streamlined setup, and is significantly smaller than previous CPI

(CPI-3 Programming Interface)

-use CPI-3 with all recipients programmed in SW

3

SW 2.2 New Feature:

HiRes Optima Sound Processing

Available for use with:
- Naída CI
- Neptune
- Harmony

HiRes Optima- optimize battery life while delivering same great performance as Fidelity 120
- allows Naída CI recipients to utilize zinc-air batteries

4

SW 2.2 New Feature:

Flex NRI

-improved NRI that allows setting parameters for multiple electrodes to complete the measures in a single round
- available for use with any sound processor you use NRI for

5

SW 2.2 New Feature:

Data Logging

Can provide you with info that may help you counsel your recipients or the use of the system and evaluate any programming changes that might need to be made.

6

SW vs SCLIN

Use SW for all recipients except those who have a C1 and are using a SP other than the Harmony

7

CPI-3 LEDs

Blue: power to CPI-3
Green: sound processors connected

8

Electrode Conditioning

Introduces stimulation to all electrode contacts to stabilize impedances prior to programming by introducing a low level of current to remove any protein build-up or air bubbles from the electrode contacts that may have build up over the time they haven't been stimulated.

9

SW Programming:

Adjusting T-Levels

Increase T's: impact soft sounds at output which decreases the EDR

10

SW Programming:

Sensitivity

Sensitivity provides additional gain or attenuation to the input signal (+/- 10dB)

Decrease sensitivity: decreases audibility of soft sounds (ex, low level background noise)

Increase Sensitivity: increases audibility of soft sounds (if increased too much, can result in more sounds in compression)

11

Benefit of Wide IDR

- access to more sound info for better hearing at softer presentation levels, incidental learning, awareness of environment, responding to important sounds, and selective listening
- fewer processor adjustments

12

Audio Mixing

- Determines which sound input is heard by recipient (SP mic, assistive device, other auxiliary input, etc.)

- Aux Only, Mic Only, 50/50 Mic/Aux, 30/70 Mic/Aux

13

Gain Adjustments

- Gain- amplification or attenuation applied to the signal input at the output of a band-pass filter (+/- 10dB)
- Benefit to patient: ability to fine tune programs, improve overall sound quality, and optimize listening across a variety of listening environments

14

UltraZoom Mic source

Mic source set to processor mic (or error message will occur)

15

Data Logging

Only available on Naída CI

- Daily Usage
- Slot Usage
- Battery type
- battery life
- environmental loudness
- environmental type (speech in quiet, speech in noise, music, noise, N/A)
- feature usage (UZ, ZC, DP, CP)
- ComPilot Source (BT phone, BT audio, Aux Jack, FM Module)
- Average User Volume and Available Range

16

Bilateral Initialization

each Naída CI holds programs for both sides; either processor, either ear!

cannot use data logging feature with Bilateral Initialization

17

Audio-Mixing

determines which sound input is heard by the recipient (i.e., microphone, assistive device, or telecoil)

18

fast, efficient, and innovative platform for managing AB recipients

SoundWave

19

Conditioning

Introduction of stimulation to all electrode contacts to stabilize impedances prior to programming

20

CPI-3

programming interface that supports programming of bilateral recipients
