The article describes the sequence of actions during fitting of the cochlear implants after the bilateral cochlear implantation. For fitting and equalization of the loudness of two implants we use method SHCHUP. We discuss the question of auditory deprivation and the necessary wearing of the hearing aid (HA) at opposite ear till second CI. This article is based on fifteen years’ experience of Clinical Practice with more than one thousand cochlear implanted patients with MEDEL implants. The General principles and methods of fitting are applicable to any type of implants.
