Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to investigate the variables that affect psychological general well-being (quality of life) in patients with cochlear implants (CIs). The study sample consists of 96 adult patients with a CI, aged 24–86 years (Mean = 61.8 yrs; SD = 15.3 yrs). 48 were patients from the Sahlgrenska University Hospital in Sweden and 48 were patients from the University of Florida, USA. The Psychological General Well-being Index and the International Outcome Inventory-Cochlear implants were used in collecting data. Possible independent variables were socioeconomic factors such as age, gender, nationality, living arrangement, education, and social support; as well as length of time since implantation, age when hearing loss became a problem, and subjective benefit of the CI. A stepwise multiple regression analysis showed that 49% of the variance was explained by attitudes from others, restricted social participation, perceived social support and age.

Abstract [es]

El propósito de este estudio fue el de investigar las variables que afectan el bienestar general psicológico (calidad de vida) en pacientes con implante coclear (CI). La muestra del estudio consistió en 96 adultos implantados con edades de 24–86 años (Media = 61.8 años; DS = 15.3 años): 48 pacientes del Hospital Universitario Sahlgrenska en Suecia y 48 de la Universidad de Florida, USA. Se utilizó el índice psicológico general de bienestar y el cuestionario internacional de resultados con IC para la recolección de datos. Las posibles variables independientes fueron factores socio-económicos, tales como edad, género, nacionalidad, formas de vida, educación, apoyo social y también el tiempo desde la implantación, la edad al presentarse la hipoacusia como problema y el beneficio subjetivo con el IC. Un análisis cuidadoso de regresión múltiple mostró que el 49% de la varianza puede explicarse por las actitudes de los demás, participación social restringida, percepción de apoyo social y edad.
