Tinnitus is the perception of sound where there is no external sound source. Patients often describe the sound as buzzing, ringing, roaring or whistling, but it can also sound like music, or even chatter. Tinnitus itself is not a disease or illness but a symptom of an underlying disease or illness. Tinnitus is most common in patients with a hearing loss and is more common in men than women1. Importantly, 80% of tinnitus patients also have hearing loss1. The most common negative effects are anxiety, depression, inability to concentrate and sleep disturbances.


The goal of this continuing education program is to provide speech-language pathologists with practical guidelines to recognize symptoms and identify causes and aggravating factors associated with tinnitus.
The content in this course is applicable to speech-language pathologists in any setting.
After taking this course, you should be able to:
  • Describe the prevalence and health consequences of tinnitus as well as the etiologic or correlative risk factors related to tinnitus.
  • Discuss the differences between the symptom tinnitus and the result on the patient of bothersome tinnitus.
  • Outline the essential elements in the assessment and management of patients with tinnitus.
