We recommend that batteries are removed from hearing aids while in storage, or that hearing aids are left on the charging base (while plugged in), so they will be ready when needed.
In addition, the reduction of available gain that can occur following the feedback optimization test, i.e. it can hinder the amount of available high frequency gain for a particular fitting. Clinicians should view the feedback optimization screen to determine whether the currently used coupling and acoustic characteristics of the fitting have resulted in a restricted maximum stable gain curve after the feedback test. If necessary, changing to a more occluded fitting could provide the ability to offer more high frequency gain.
