The APHAB uses 24 articles that cover 4 subscales: Unwanted sounds that occur simultaneously with the use of hearing aid, difficulty in conversation, difficulty in compression, permanence of sound once the original source stopped emitting, negative user reactions to environmental sounds. The data were tabulated using Microsoft Excel and analyzed using the SPSS statistical program (Statistical Package for the Social Sciences). RESULTS: According to the results of the research, in the dimension unwanted sounds 37% of the participants indicate that they rarely present unwanted sounds, Regarding difficulty in conversation, more than 50% of the participants indicate that they do not present difficulties when communicating with the hearing aids. CONCLUSIONS: Finally after the application of the APHAB satisfaction survey, The participants in this research are satisfied with the use of the hearing aid since it was evident that the population that comments on difficulties is less than the population that says they do not have problems with the use of hearing aid received by the Starkey 2018 mission at the University of San Buenaventura, Cartagena.
