All About Hearing Aids

After confirmation of the hearing loss problems, adult hearing loss is treated by a variety of methods including hearing aids, aural habilitation, and cochlear implantation etc. Hearing loss in adults is caused by a number of factors including infection or disease, drugs, continuous and excessive exposure to noise, trauma, or aging process. 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.

Statistics reveals that hearing loss is quite common in the world.

Types of hearing loss

Broadly hearing loss is classified in two categories.

Sensory hearing loss: When there is a problem in the cochlear nerve, brain stem, or cochlea; there is a loss of impulses in the sensory-neural system.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.

Types of hearing aids

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: They are also called cochlear implants.

Losing your ability to hear is not something anyone wants to face but being fitted with a device to make it better might be the best decision you could make. The technology allows you to hear comfortably while eliminating buzzing and whistling most users complain about.

Of course, hearing aids come in small, in-the-canal models for those who want something discreet.For those who want something that is obvious than a canal type device, there is the invisible product (IIC). While this design is typically large, the company has been working on reducing the overall size and they also offer another version in which a speaker is placed in the canal. Of course, only an audiologist can determine which of the many hearing aids is the best option for you. 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.
