... Sensitivity analysis was done by excluding studies with a sample sizes of 60 or by excluding studies with significant levels of heterogeneity. [8][9][10][18][19][20][21][22][23][24][25][26][27][28][29][30][31][32][33][34] were selected from 99 records. e 20 SRs comprised 194 RCTs, while 44 RCTs were updated simultaneously as described for eligibility inclusion. ...
... Terefore, in the present study, we considered the entire waveform from 10 ms to 100 ms, collectively naming it LLR [11]. Acupuncture therapy originated more than 2500 years ago in ancient China and is now widely used worldwide, including in Western countries [12]. Acupuncture therapy is mentioned in the National Institutes of Health (NIH) conference and is recorded in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) [13]. ...
... Cohen et al. and Li et al. recommended using trimmed nasal cannula, awake sedation, nasal or face mask where possible [2,4]. Further studies are needed to determine if these patients could benefit from novel techniques such as allergen immunotherapy (AIT), posterior nasal nerve (PNN) cryoablation, and electroacupuncture [13][14][15]. ...
... Disorder-specific cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia can have a positive effect on tinnitus complaints [44,45]. Furthermore, for the first time, evidence emerged that sleep disturbances prior to the onset of tinnitus can be predictive of the severity of tinnitus [46]. A recent longitudinal study also showed that severe tinnitus was associated with a poorer sleep quality [47]. ...
... Included studies will be evaluated based on the following criteria: allocation concealment, selective outcome reporting (SOR), other risks of biases, incomplete outcome data, randomisation generation, and blinding of study personnel/patients and outcome assessors. [17] Trials sponsored by a relevant manufacturer, in which baseline characteristics are not alike amongst intervention groups, will be identified as a bias. If at least ten trials have reported the primary outcomes, publication bias will be evaluated by funnel plots. ...
... [6,7] Peripheral nerve disorders considerably affect a patient's functioning and quality of life. [8] Generally, nonsurgical therapy for nerve entrapment syndrome is recommended for at least 3 months and comprises anti-inflammatory or analgesic drugs, splinting, avoiding aggravating activities or postures, physiotherapy, and topical steroid injections. Surgical intervention should be considered if symptoms worsen (despite nonsurgical treatment), or if severe symptoms or advanced findings (i.e., significant atrophy) are observed at the initial visit. ...
... Therefore, we developed a tinnitus management app that provides structured counseling supported by sound therapy. Structured counseling has been shown to improve tinnitus distress and quality of life in face-to-face settings or through written manuals [31,32] and may have better effects when combined with sound therapy [32][33][34]. Additionally, the app contains an Ecological Momentary Assessment (EMA) module that tracks changes in tinnitus symptoms on a daily basis. ...
... To the knowledge of researchers, no less than 20 of self-rating questionnaires have been utilized in clinical practice globally, which include the Tinnitus Questionnaire (TQ), Tinnitus Handicap Inventory (THI), Tinnitus Reaction Questionnaire (TRQ) and Tinnitus Functional Index (TFI). 7 The lack of an objective measure of tinnitus has led to self-report questionnaire as the best option to evaluate tinnitus symptom and quantify the degree to which quality of life is negatively impacted. 8 These effects are not related to the physical characteristics of tinnitus such as perceived loudness; although its effect show high inter-subject variability. ...
... In recent times, the incidence of sudden deafness is on the rise (2). Although large sample epidemiological data are lacking, the incidence of sudden deafness has been increasing in China in recent years (3). The incidence of sudden deafness in the United States ranges from 5 to 27 people per 100,000, and approximately 66,000 new cases are reported annually (4). ...
... Allergic rhinitis (AR) is a global health problem. It is a common symptomatic, inflammatory, and immunological disorder of the nasal mucosa, characterised by four classic symptoms: sneezing, nasal itching, airflow obstruction, and clear nasal discharge caused by IgE-mediated reactions [1]. AR can be subdivided into intermittent (four symptoms for <4 days per week or for <4 weeks) and persistent disease (four symptoms for >4 days per week or for >4 weeks) [2]. ...
