Hearing Aid Dispensing Question?

I am an audiologist in private practice.  In regard to how I counsel
patients on the life of programmable and/or CIC intruments is that it is
not likely to be much different than conventional instruments.  The most
sensitive components such as the microphone and receiver are just as
likely to malfunction than in more conventional instruments, and newer
technology will most likely make these models obsolete in six or seven
years.  Who knows what wonders lie ahead?  On another train of thought I
have to step back and try to be sensitive to what the patient needs to
communicate effectively in current living style and routine.  Sometimes
fixing that old hearing aid really is the best thing to do.
