Cochlear implants can provide the recipient and their family with wonderful outcomes in terms of their improved access to sound and to speech. However the experience of a cochlear implant failing is distressing for all concerned. Clinicians endeavour to ensure that the process of confirming the failure, re-implantation and subsequent rehabilitation is as smooth as possible.

In order to benefit from each others experience, a working party of cochlear implant centre coordinators and representatives from the Ear Foundation met on a number of occasions to draw up a protocol which could be used widely throughout the British Cochlear Implant Group. The protocol indicates quality standards of clinical care to be used in the event of device failure.

Abstract

Cochlear implants can provide the recipient and their family with wonderful outcomes in terms of their improved access to sound and to speech. However the experience of a cochlear implant failing is distressing for all concerned. Clinicians endeavour to ensure that the process of confirming the failure, re-implantation and subsequent rehabilitation is as smooth as possible.

In order to benefit from each others experience, a working party of cochlear implant centre coordinators and representatives from the Ear Foundation met on a number of occasions to draw up a protocol which could be used widely throughout the British Cochlear Implant Group. The protocol indicates quality standards of clinical care to be used in the event of device failure.
