Hearing aids from children’s hearing care
Do you feel that it is more and more difficult to listen to others??I often need to ask the other party to repeat it.?Do you feel that when there is noise in the surrounding environment, communication skills are greatly reduced??Is the volume of the TV getting bigger and bigger??Or the children in the family often told him that he was not responding and his concentration was not concentrated.?The above situation is likely to be caused by hearing problems, and it is necessary to go to the otolaryngology department of a large hospital for hearing tests.
Hearing impairment is generally divided into three types: conductive type, sensory type and mixed type. The so-called conduction type means that the sound cannot be transmitted to the inner ear through the outer ear and the middle ear normally. The diseases that cause conduction type hearing impairment are middle ear and outer ear diseases, such as otitis media, small ear disease, and ear bone sclerosis. As for the sensory type, the conduction path of the sounds of the outer ear and the middle ear is normal, but the hair cells of the inner ear have lesions, so that the message of the sound cannot be received and analyzed.
There are many reasons for hearing-induced hearing impairment, such as congenital hearing impairment, senile hearing impairment, sudden deafness, and Meniere. Hybrid type is conductio(Outside and middle ear)And receiving(inner ear)Poor conditions. It is very easy to distinguish the three types of hearing impairments in clinical practice. Patients can know the type, severity and possible causes of hearing impairment by receiving otoscopy and simple pure tone hearing.
How to treat hearing impairment??General conductive hearing impairment can be treated with drugs, surgery or implantable bone conduction hearing aids, the effect is mostly good. However, patients with sensory hearing impairment are not so lucky. With the exception of a few diseases, most of the sensory hearing impairments cannot be treated with drugs or surgery. They mostly need help with hearing aids or artificial electronic ear. Clinically, more tha90%The hearing-impaired patients are of the sensory type, so the hearing aid plays an important role in the rehabilitation of the hearing impaired.
Hearing aidThe selection is a major, mostly done by an otolaryngologist and a professional audiologist or an optional fitter. The purchase of hearing aids is also different from the purchase of general electrical appliances. It must consider different factors such as the degree of hearing loss of each person and the need for hearing in daily life. Therefore, it is very important to choose a manufacturer with professional capabilities and enthusiastic service. Of course, this profession is absolutely impossible to write one by one. Here are some common questions, and some suggestions for hearing aid wearers:
First, the appropriate expectation: hearing aids, as the name suggests, is to help communicate. It is impossible to restore the original hearing after being worn.
Second, don’t give up too early: use any new machine, you must take some time to adapt, let the brain get used to new messages. Don’t give up because you have a noise when you first start wearing it.
Third, in principle, try to wear both ears: Under the scope of economic permission, the effect of binaural wear is better, of course, there are a few exceptions.
Fourth, in the end, we must emphasize the choice of professional and enthusiastic physicians and manufacturers. Because the hearing aid is not a match, it’s okay, and there are many subsequent repairs or adjustments to keep it in top shape.
All in all, there is no need to panic with hearing impairment. After the professional diagnosis of otolaryngologists to determine the cause, there are always ways to help communicate, thus reducing the inconvenience of daily life and improving the quality of life.
