To figure out whether this adult hearing loss has taken place in grown ups, audiologists conduct different tests for a complete hearing evaluation. Sometimes the hearing loss is accompanied by ringing in the ears, sometimes there is no ringing. Although there are selected few doctors who are specialized in this field yet in their clinic they have audiology staffing who can help them in the treatment of the patients to regain the sense of hearing. This audiology staff is important in the practice of an audiologist of his or her profession to give extra care and support to the patients while under screening and treatment and this staff is fully trained for this purpose.
There are more than 60 million people suffering from hearing troubles.
Kinds of hearing loss
Broadly hearing loss is classified in two categories.
Sensory hearing loss: Sometimes, there are abnormal impulses. In both the cases, patients can’t hear properly.In some cases, trauma, accidents, infections, and other reasons like Acoustic Neuroma also cause sensory hearing loss.
Conducive hearing loss:Coducive loss of hearing:Conducive hearing loss: This hearing loss occurs when the sound waves from the external ear can’t traverse through the middle air so the brain doesn’t get signals of sound waves, and patients can’t hear.
Hearing aids types
Though hearing aids exist from centuries, modern technology made a revolutionary change in the usability, applicability and convenience.
External hearing aids: External devices are placed behind the ear or inside the external ear and they amplify the sound waves so that they can reach to the middle ear effectively.
Internal aids: These implants are highly effective in the case of Neurosensory hearing loss and the results so far have been quite good even in kids who suffer from loss of hearing by birth.
Companies understand that people who use their hearing aids still need to be able to use cellular phones and that is why they have a model that is made for mobile phone use. This aid connects to your phone or any other mobile device via an application. It easily streams music, calls, and commands from your device into your ear – no need to hold the phone or use earphones.
Of course, hearing aids come in small, in-the-canal models for those who want something discreet.ITC models are designed for someone who has mild to mildly severe hearing loss and replaces technology that used to require a much larger device. Hearing aids also come in two behind-the-ear styles and one which is simply known as BTE, has a tube that runs in the ear canal in order to deliver good sound. Instead of tubing, the speaker is connected to a tiny wire. It is smaller and less visible but works in a similar way. It is important to remember that each device is custom fit to your ear, so there may be a few weeks between determining which device you need and the time you receive it. Early consultation does not hamper your day by day activities. It could be more disappointing your hearing concern is not given the proper solution. Nothing is uncertain in the current generation with the new technologies coming up.
