CAUTIONS

Remove external equipment to stop stimulation if sounds cause discomfort.

It is important for the headpiece to have the correct magnet strength to

avoid discomfort or retention issues. If an insufficient number of magnets

are used, the headpiece may fall off more than is acceptable. If too many

magnets are used, the recipient may experience irritation or discomfort. Consult

a clinician if there are any concerns regarding magnet strength. If deemed

appropriate, an audiologist may insert additional magnets or remove magnets

from the headpiece. Do not place additional magnets in the headpiece unless

under the direction of a cochlear implant professional. If the recipient experiences

any redness, irritation, or discomfort, discontinue use of the headpiece immediately

and contact a cochlear implant center. See the headpiece Instructions for Use for

additional information regarding adjustment of headpiece magnet strength.

If the sound processor or accessories become unusually hot or warm, discontinue

use immediately and contact Advanced Bionics or a clinician.

Store additional headpieces away from items with magnetic strips (e.g. credit

cards, hotel room key cards), as this may de-magnetize cards.

Portable and mobile RF communications equipment, including radios and

cellular phones, may affect sound quality of the Naída CI sound processor and

accessories; however, there is no safety hazard associated with such equipment.

The Naída CI sound processor and accessories should be used in accordance

with the electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) information provided in the Guidance and

Manufacturer’s Declaration section of the Instructions for Use.

Only use the charger provided for charging AB PowerCels. Do not use it to

charge other batteries. Do not try to charge Naída CI PowerCels using a charger

other than the one provided by Advanced Bionics.

Remove batteries from your sound processor when they are drained to prevent

damage from possible leaking.

Do not expose any part of the Naída CI sound processor or accessories to extreme

heat, such as an oven, microwave, or hair dryer.

Only charge batteries using charger(s) recommended by the manufacturer.

Do not use your AB myPilot or ComPilot accessories when instructed not to use

wireless electronic devices, such as on airplanes.

The AB myPilot should not come within 1/2” (1 cm) of the Naída CI processor

4 Naída CI Sound Processor User Guide

while stimulating the implant. Doing so could cause the implant and sound

processor to lose lock. If this happens, power down the processor and power back

on (by disengaging the battery and reattaching).

The digitally-coded, inductive transmission technology used in this device is

extremely reliable and experiences virtually no interference from other devices.

It should be noted, however, that when operating the device near a computer

terminal or other strong electromagnetic fields, it may be necessary to be at least

24” (60 cm) away to ensure proper operation. If the Naída CI does not respond

to the implant device because of an unusual field disturbance, move away from

the disturbing field.

If the AB myPilot stops being able to transmit commands to the sound processor,

it may be necessary to re-pair the AB myPilot with your sound processor. Consult the

Pairing to the AB myPilot section of this user manual.

If volume commands from your AB myPilot to your sound processor seem erratic,

re-pair the AB myPilot and the Naída CI.

NOTe:

When streaming audio with the ComPilot, if your headpiece becomes

unlocked, turn off the ComPilot prior to re-locking your headpiece. Not doing so

may prevent the sound processor from communicating with your implant.

The following are examples of situations where high levels of electrostatic charge may be created:

Walking, crawling, or sliding on carpets.

Sliding on plastic slides.

Exiting an automobile.

Pulling sweaters on and off.

Touching TV or computer screens.

Removing bedding materials.

To reduce the likelihood of electrostatic discharge damage:

Touch a person or object with your fingers prior to touching your or your child’s headpiece, cable,

or sound processor.

Touch metal surfaces with your hand prior to allowing equipment to contact the metal surface.

This is particularly important on the playground where high levels of static electricity can be

generated. It is important to discharge any static electricity by touching a metal surface with your hand

prior to allowing the sound processor, cable, or headpiece come into contact with the metal surface.

Take care to avoid contact between your cochlear implant equipment and metal surfaces

when exiting a vehicle.

The Naída CI Sound Processor and Accessories Overview

The Naída CI is the newest and most advanced cochlear implant sound processor available.

As evidence of Advanced Bionics’ dedication to providing the best hearing possible, the Naída

CI provides access to AutoSound™ technology, which dynamically adapts to every listening environment, automatically adjusting volume levels to optimize hearing. The Naída CI is also capable of utilizing all approved sound processing options offered by Advanced Bionics.

Depending on the country in which you live, this may include HiRes™-S, HiRes™-P, HiRes Fidelity

120™, ClearVoice™, HiRes Optima™, CIS, and MPS.

The Naída CI

Tri-Colored LeDs

(green, orange, red)

The Naída CI is a miniature computer that converts sound picked up by the microphone into electrical signals that are used by the cochlear implant to enable hearing. It is able to store up to five (5) user-selectable programs for optimal hearing across all listening environments.

The Naída CI has diagnostic indicators, such as LEDs and internal audible alarms. The Naída CI

LEDs provide important information about Naída CI status, battery life, program position, audio input, and Naída CI error conditions. Internal alarms provide a discreet way for adult recipients to get important information about battery status, program number, and volume level. For more information, refer to the

Naída CI LEDs

and

Internal Alarms

sections of this User Guide.

The Naída CI can be programmed using IntelliLink™ to prevent use by a cochlear implant other than the one for which it has been programmed. IntelliLink is an important safety feature for very young children and bilateral implant recipients.

The Naída CI can also be programmed bilaterally allowing the recipient access to up to ten programs on a single processor, up to five programs for the left ear and up to five programs for the right ear. When programmed bilaterally by your clinical professional, the Naída CI will detect which ear it is worn on and provide access to the appropriate programs for that ear.

12 Naída CI Sound Processor User Guide

The Universal Headpiece

The Universal Headpiece includes a coil that transmits sound signals and power to the implant, as well as a magnet well, which houses the necessary number of magnets to ensure the headpiece stays on throughout the day. The headpiece is covered by a Color Cap, which snaps securely in place. The headpiece also functions as a sound input source, having a microphone embedded in it. The microphone picks up sound from the environment and transfers it to the sound processor via a detachable cable. Once the sound processor has converted the sound into electric signals, it sends the information to the implant via the cable and headpiece. The cables come in a variety of colors and lengths to suit all needs. The Naída CI sound processor works with the Universal Headpiece.

Color Cap

Microphone

Cable Connection Port

The Universal Headpiece (UHP), works with all Advanced Bionics’ sound processors, and is intended for use with the Naída CI processor outside of water environments.

For more information, refer to the

section of the User Guide or the

UHP and/or Cable Instructions for Use.

AB myPilot

The AB myPilot is an advanced remote control that leverages Phonak technology to enable wireless communication for unilateral and bilateral Naída CI recipients. The AB myPilot provides convenient controls to manipulate program, volume, sensitivity, source-specific listening checks, and ZoomControl for the Naída CI. The AB myPilot also has the ability to provide status and battery information for Naída CI processors. For bilateral Naída CI users, AB myPilot offers onetouch binaural controls, allowing changes to be made to both processors at once.

Naída CI Sound Processor User Guide

13

ComPilot

The ComPilot allows unparalleled connectivity for Naída CI recipients, connecting them wirelessly to Bluetooth® enabled phones and devices or MP3 players for speech or stereo music.

It is also compatible with Phonak’s portfolio of FM receivers via a euro socket. Additionally, when unpaired, the ComPilot is able to stream to compatible Phonak instruments. This allows bimodal wearers -- people who wear a Naída CI on one ear and a Phonak hearing instrument on the other ear -- access to bilateral wireless streaming.

When the ComPilot is paired to the Naída CI, it provides remote control functions to adjust the

Naída CI for increased listening comfort in addition to wireless streaming. When paired, you are able to make program and volume changes via the ComPilot only to the Naída CI. If you are bilaterally implanted, changes can be made to both Naída CI processors simultaneously. The

ComPilot also connects both Naída CI processors wirelessly to other communication and audio devices, allowing you to hear the signal in both ears.

Naída CI Listening Check

The Naída CI Listening Check’s unique design makes conducting a diagnostic check of the microphone and audio input sources easy and accessible. The Module itself does not have a power source, as it relies solely on power from the Naída CI power sources (PowerCels,

Zn-Air Battery Pak, AAA/03 PowerPak or Off-the-Ear Power Options). The Naída CI Listening

Check allows an unaided listener to listen to the exact microphone configurations the recipient is using. Alternatively, if the recipient owns an AB myPilot, the unaided listener can do a listening check of all audio sources independently by selecting them individually on the AB myPilot menu.

14 Naída CI Sound Processor User Guide

Performance Technology

Naída CI allows users access to Phonak’s Binaural VoiceStream Technology including

UltraZoom, DuoPhone, QuickSync, and ZoomControl. These programmable features are set by your implant professional in the SoundWave fitting software.

UltraZoom

Zooms in on the voices of people facing you, while noise from the side and back is reduced.

DuoPhone

DuoPhone allows bilateral users the ability to hear phone conversations in both ears simultaneously while also reducing surrounding noise. By placing the phone to one ear the conversation is automatically streamed to the other ear as well, giving the listener the best possible listening experience.

QuickSync

The QuickSync feature from Phonak allows for easy, instant, simultaneous adjustments to volume and program settings on two Naída CI sound processors.

It gives bilateral wearers the ability to control both cochlear implants/sound processors with just one touch.

ZoomControl

Focuses on the speaker to the left or right that you want to hear when you cannot face them, such as when driving in a car.

CAUTIONS:

UltraZoom will dampen sounds that are not in front of the recipient

Do not use UltraZoom in an off-the-ear wearing configuration.

Assembling the Naída CI

Using the Telephone

There are a variety of ways to use the telephone with the Naída CI sound processor. Consult a hearing care professional for recommendations regarding telephone use and which of the following options are best:

Use the telephone receiver. The telephone can be used by placing the telephone receiver

directly over the T-Mic 2, processor microphones or headpiece microphone, if activated. It is

sometimes necessary to try different phones and providers, particularly when cellular phones

are used, in order to find the optimal telephone signal.

Use T-coil. The T-coil is programmable by a hearing care professional in the SoundWave™

fitting software. If there are any questions about whether it is activated and in what program,

please contact the implant center. When using the T-coil it may be necessary to move the

phone receiver around the Naída CI to see where it works best.

Use Bluetooth®. Any Bluetooth compatible device can be synced to the ComPilot to stream

phone calls directly to the Naída CI. The microphone for the speaker is located on the

ComPilot, so the phone can be up to 15 - 30 feet (5 - 10 meters) away and still be in use.

Use DuoPhone (for bilateral recipients). DuoPhone is programmable by your hearing care

professional in the SoundWave fitting software. With the phone placed to one ear, the conversation

Naída CI Sound Processor User Guide

39

is heard in both ears.

Use a patch cable. A patch cable may be used to connect directly to a cellular or cordless

phone. The patch cable connects to the headset jack of the phone on one end and

the auxiliary jack of the ComPilot on the other. An Audio Interface Cable is available from

AB, or a custom-made patch cable from an independent vendor may be required. Consult

with a hearing care professional or an AB representative for further information regarding

this option.

Use a speaker phone. Using a speaker phone eliminates the need for additional equipment

when using the telephone. Simply turn on the speaker phone and communicate in your

regular manner.

Telephone Tips

Be patient. Remember that phone use takes practice and will improve over time.

Practice listening with familiar speakers, such as family members, friends, your therapist, or

hearing care professional.

It may be helpful to become familiar with the topic of discussion ahead of time. For example,

tell your friend to call you at a specific time to talk about a specific topic (e.g., Call me at 6:00

p.m. to talk about going to the movies).

You may need to practice with several telephones to find one that is right.

When selecting a cellular phone, remember to try the phone first.

For additional telephone support and listening exercises, visit TheListeningRoom.com.

Telecoil

Using the Built-in Telecoil

Telecoils provide wireless access to hearing-aid-compatible telephones and induction-loop systems (found in some public facilities). Telecoils capture electromagnetic fields in the environment and deliver these signals to your processor. A telecoil is built into your processor and is programmed by a hearing care professional. To activate your telecoil, first consult with the hearing care professional to determine if a program in your processor has been created for its use. If so, the telecoil will activate once the processor is switched to the designated program.

For your telecoil to be effective, the recipient must have access to a looped system or a hearing aid-compatible phone. This will allow the telecoil to receive the electromagnetic field generated by these devices. If the recipient is attempting to use the telecoil with a non-compatible audio device, no sound or a low-level humming or buzzing noise may be heard.

40 Naída CI Sound Processor User Guide

CAUTION:

Telecoils are known to be susceptible to magnetic noise generated by

most industrial lighting fixtures, store and airport security scanners, band scanners,

power transformers, motor starters, and monitor screens.

(HiRes 120), and ClearVoice.

HiRes™ and HiRes Fidelity 120™ Sound Processing

A clinical study was conducted in 50 adults implanted with a CII/HiRes 90K device who used a Harmony processor to document the benefits of HiRes 120 and HiRes sound processing.

Performance with HiRes was accessed at the baseline visit and compared with HiRes 120 performance after three months of listening experience. Subsequently, subjects were refit and retested with HiRes. Results showed equivalent mean CNC word recognition scores for the two strategies. The mean HINT sentence perception scores in quiet and noise were significantly higher for HiRes 120 compared to baseline with HiRes. For HINT sentences in noise, the mean scores for HiRes 120 were significantly higher than scores after subjects were refit with HiRes.
