Abstract

Objective: This study outlines a series of experiments using the neural response telemetry (NRT) system of the Nucleus CI24M cochlear implant to measure the electrically evoked compound action potential (EAP). The goal of this investigation was to develop a protocol that allows successful recording of the EAP in a majority of CI24M cochlear implant users. Design: Twenty-six postlingually deafened adults participated in this study. A series of experiments were conducted that allowed us to examine how manipulation of stimulation and recording parameters may affect the morphology of the EAP recorded using the Nucleus NRT system. Results: Results of this study show consistent responses on at least some electrodes from all subjects. Cross- subject and cross electrode variations in both the growth of the response and the temporal refractory properties of the response were observed. The range of stimulus and recording parameters that can be used to record the EAP with the Nucleus NRT system is described. Conclusions: Using the protocol outlined in this study, it is possible to reliably record EAP responses from most subjects and for most electrodes in Nucleus CI24M cochlear implant users. These responses are robust and recording these responses does not require that the subject sleep or remain still. Based on these results, a specific protocol is proposed for measurement of the EAP using the NRT system of the CI24M cochlear implant. Potential clinical implications of these results are discussed.
