House Episode

Save the date: April 27th, 2009

The next episode of House will be CI related.

House Divided

A deaf 14-year old wrestler suffers from hearing problems during a match, but his mother refuses to okay cochlear implants. Meanwhile, House’s insomnia proves a curse… and a blessing.”

This should bring up some interesting ethic issues. There is some debate out there as to how much say a child/teenager should have in the CI decision making process vs their parents.

Random fact (I’m sure several of you already know this but wanted to point it out): “Dr. William House developed and implanted the first cochlear implant, providing the opportunity to hear for deaf and hard of hearing patients whose condition could not be improved by hearing aids or other means.”

Yep, House implanted the first cochlear implant…. 😉
