When should I recommend Sky Q and when should I recommend Naída S or Nios S H2O?
Phonak Sky Q is the dedicated pediatric portfolio on the Quest platform. It replaces Nios S H2O and Naída S for pediatric hearing instrument users. Sky Q comes in the four form factors (Sky Q RIC, M13, SP, and UP) and in three different performance levels (Q90, Q70, Q50).

Is there a new microphone filter with Sky Q M13? How can I change it?
No, the microphone filter of the Sky Q-RIC and Sky Q-M13 is the same as the Bolero Q-M13 and all the H20 models. To change it, the upper housing has to be removed and replaced.
We recommend changing the microphone protection for Sky Q RIC and Sky Q M13 once a year, or more often if the client is a very active person or in an environment that has a lot of moisture or dust.
Can I use the Power Slim Tube with my pediatric patients?
Use of the Power Slim Tube is recommended on pediatric patients 9 years or older. The user needs to be able to handle something a bit more delicate. Note that it has to be fit with a custom ear mold because it is used for power fittings.
