Hearing loss and Treatment of Hearing Loss
Hearing loss may occur due to various causes. It may be caused due to ear wax build up, an ear infection, perforation of the ear drum, noise exposure, aging (presbucusis), family genetics, and more. Certain types of hearing losses such as an ear infection, ear wax accumulation, fluid build up behind the ear drum may be successfully treated with surgery or medicine. If your hearing loss is due to permanent damage caused by noise exposure, aging, and genetics, treatment of hearing aids is the only source of treatment.
Below are various types of hearing losses. If you’re having difficulty understanding speech clearly, or difficulty hearing, it is a good time to have your hearing examined.
Types of Hearing Loss
Conductive hearing loss- Can usually be medically treated. This happens when you experience hearing loss due to issues with your ear drum, middle ear and its bones and the ear canal.
It is caused by various things including;
Fluid in your middle ear
Infection in your ear canal
Malformation of your outer ear
A foreign body in your ear
A perforated eardrum
Sensorineural hearing loss- You are probably likely to experience this when you get problems of your inner ear (also known as the nerve-related hearing loss). This loss is impacted by different causes including;
If hearing loss that runs in the family
Exposure to loud noise
Autoimmune inner ear disease
Malformation of the inner ear
Virus or disease
Mixed hearing loss – This refers to a mix of both sensorineural and conductive hearing loss. Hence you might have damage in your inner ear/the auditory nerve or the outer/middle part of your ear. Mixed hearing loss may be caused by different causes that also happen in the above two hearing loss; Exposure to loud noise, malformation of the ear, old age, loud noise, head trauma, if hearing loss runs in your family/genetic disorder, a disease or a virus or if you have an autoimmune inner ear problem.
If you are having hearing difficulties, it is vital to visit your local hearing doctor for a hearing examination to determine the cause of your hearing reduction. If your hearing loss is conductive or mixed, you will need to see an ear nose and throat physician for a medical evaluation/treatment. If your hearing loss is sensorineural, an audiologist will help you treat your hear loss with help of a hearing aid.
A hearing aid is an electronic device made of an amplifier, a battery, a microphone and a loudspeaker. It raises the amplitude at various frequencies based on the needs of your hearing, ultimately makes sounds more clear. Hearing aids consist of a mechanism which differentiate destructive noise (traffic noise) from the constructive noise (a conversation).The modern hearing aids are discreet and small, some are even invisible!
If you have any type of hearing difficulty, it’s time to have your hearing examined!
Statistics indicate that about 2 to 3 three children in every 1000 live births are born with hearing loss problems in the US. At age 60, about one out of every three adults is thought to have a hearing problem. Additionally, more than 40 million Americans have either shown or reported signs of hearing problems.
Fortunately, there is help available, individuals with hearing difficulties can be assisted by audiologists.
Hearing loss is an invisible problem which can be caused by aging, disease, heredity or noise exposure. Since hearing is a complicated sense involving the brain`s ability to detect and interpret sounds, it is important to get diagnosed or checked for hearing problems by a qualified audiologist. Diagnosis may include a physical examination, audiometric tests, general screening tests, tympanometry (ear pressure test), or an otoacoustic emission test (hearing organ test).
According to Dr. Artem Yusupov, an audiologist from Universal hearing center which is situated in Forest Hills, New York, hearing well is an essential part of living a quality life. To help his patients get back their hearing, Dr. Yusupov, with the use of state of the art hearing aid technology and appropriate rehabilitation to help his patient’s achieve their goal!
It is important to note that hearing aids cannot restore normal hearing; instead, they advance hearing by amplifying soft sounds at different pitches of sound, enabling the patient to hear sounds that he or she had trouble hearing.
Research has shown that hearing aids can reduce the impact of hearing loss. They are designed in a way to help a patient hear daily sounds including alarm rings, telephones, doorbells, and even improve the ability to hear speeches. Additionally, they can also help an individual to enjoy TV, music and the movies, at a volume that is reasonable to the people in the neighborhood.
Depending on particular features, styles, sizes, how they are placed in the ear and their prices, hearing aids can be grouped into different classes.
-Behind the ear hearing aids. In a behind the ear hearing aid, a tube links the hearing support to a custom earphone called an ear mold or slim tube that fits in the ear canal.
-Receiver in the ear hearing aid- The receiver in the ear hearing aid is a thin wire connected to the actual hearing aid is integrated and place into the ear canal. Very discrete, and excellent sound quality.
- In the ear hearing aids- Fit in the bowl-shaped region of the ear upper shell.
- In the canal hearing aids- These supports are modified to fit partly in the ear canal.
- Completely-in-the-canal hearing aids- These aids are amended to fit in the ear canal.
-Invisible in the canal hearing aids- Invisible when worn, very discrete, and extraordinary sound quality.
How hearing aids work
Today, most hearing aids are advanced, powered with hearing aid batteries. They are equipped with small microphones that gather sound waves from the environment and transmit them to the respective hearing sites in the ear. There is also a small chip with an amp that converts arriving sound into digital code. This system scrutinizes and fine-tunes the sound based on the individual`s hearing loss, listening needs and the altitude of sounds surrounding the patient. Finally, the amplified sounds are converted back into sound waves which are then transmitted to the ears through speakers.
