Hearing loss is associated with higher hospitalization risk among older adults.
However, evidence on whether hearing aid use is associated with fewer hospitalizations among individuals with hearing loss remains limited.
We assess the association between audiometric hearing loss severity and hearing aid use and hospitalization.
This population-based cross-sectional study used audiometric and health care utilization data for respondents aged 65 years or older from 4 cycles of the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey from 2005 to 2016.
Data were analyzed from February 23, 2021, to March 22, 2022.
