Abstract: Objective To investigate the characteristics of hearing aid fitting for elderly patients. Methods The pure tone audiometry of 186 cases with 250~8 000 Hz was measured. Based on these patients' hearing, conventional hearing aid fitting and debugging was performed in 100 cases, remote hearing aid fitting was conducted in 86 cases. The final results were tracked. Results Remote fitting and conventional fitting produced the same improvements in hearing and speech discrimination. Conclusion Both conventional and remote fitting can choose the right hearing aids for patients and improve their hearing. Remote fitting can reduce the costs and offer satisfactory service for elderly patients.

Key words: Hearing aid, Remote fitting, Hearing dysfunction in elderly patients
