Tinnitus: Constant, Intermittent, Temporary, or Absent?

Henry JA, Griest SE, Blankenship C, Gordon J, Helt W, Thielman E, Theodoroff S, Lewis MS, Carlson KF. Tinnitus: Constant, Intermittent, Temporary, or Absent? Poster session presented at: American Academy of Audiology Annual Convention; 2015 Mar 27; San Antonio, TX.


The NOISE Study (Noise Outcomes In Service-members Epidemiology Study) is a joint venture between the Department of Defense and VA. Recently-discharged Veterans undergo comprehensive baseline assessment to initiate long-term monitoring of auditory function. To determine if Veterans experience tinnitus we developed the Tinnitus Screener, a four-item instrument that determines if tinnitus is present and, if so, whether it is constant, intermittent, or temporary. Validation data from the instrument are presented from the first 100 Veterans tested in the study.
