HEARING

hearing1

WHAT IS NORMALHEARING?

  1. Sounds enter the ear canal – Sound waves move through the ear canal and strike the ear drum.
  2. The ear drum and middle ear bones vibrate – These sound waves cause the eardrum, and the three bones (ossicles) within the middle ear, to vibrate.
  3. Fluid moves through the inner ear – The vibrations move through the fluid in the spiral shaped inner ear – known as the cochlea – and cause the tiny hair cells in the cochlea to move and send impulses to the hearing nerve.
  4. Hearing nerve communicates to the brain The hearing nerve then sends the information to the brain with electrical impulses, where they are interpreted as sound.

WHAT IS A SENSORINEURAL HEARING LOSS?

This type of hearing loss refers to damage in either the cochlea or the hearing nerve.  A sensorineural hearing loss is associated with ageing or prolonged exposure to excessive noise. It can also be caused by certain medications or even a viral infection.

What can help?  Depending on the severity of the hearing loss, the following may be suitable options to discuss with your audiologist or ear-, nose-, and throat specialist:

  • Hearing aid
  • Nucleus® Cochlear Implant

WHAT IS A CONDUCTIVE HEARING LOSS?

This type of hearing loss refers to a problem in the middle- or outer ear.  Sound cannot get to the hearing nerve in a normal way because there might be something blocking the pathway.  Some of these problems may include a perforated eardrum or a closed ear canal.

What can help? Depending on the severity of the hearing loss, the following may be suitable options to discuss with your audiologist or ear-, nose-, and throat specialist:

  • Hearing Aid
  • Baha®

WHAT IS A MIXED HEARING LOSS?

A mixed hearing loss is a combination of a conductive- and a sensorineural hearing loss.  This means that the inner-, middle-, and/or outer ear is affected.   

What can help? Depending on the severity of the hearing loss, the following may be suitable options to discuss with your audiologist or ear-, nose-, and throat specialist:

  • Hearing Aid
  • Baha®
