Programming of the cochlear implant, or what is commonly called a “Mapping”, refers to the setting of the electrical stimulation limits necessary for the cochlear implant user to “hear” soft and comfortably loud sound.
Threshold levels are set to allow the user access to soft speech and outside sounds. Comfort Levels refers to the amount of electrical current one needs for perception of a comfortably loud ‘beeping’ signal.
Threshold (T-levels) measurements may be obtained in several ways, depending the age or functioning level of the patient. The stimulation is reduced to the lowest detectable level.
For children over 5, a loudness scaling chart or verbal response is used to determine Comfort Levels.
The mapping report provides printed out information on map parameters, threshold and comfort level settings.

It will allow you to understand how computer programs or software as it’s mostly called, is created.2. There are lots of different computer programming languages, some have been around for years, and others are fairly new, here are just a few of the many languages; BASIC, C, C++, Fortran, Pascal, Visual Basic, Visual Basic .NET, Assembly, and tons of others.You do not have to go to a College or online School to learn a programming language, there are actually lots of free online tutorials and courses. Once you become familiar with learning BASIC, and creating a few little games, or other software with it, you then may wish to start learning or another powerful language.
