How hearing Works

Hearing Loss

Simplified
Hearing loss is a permanent, progressive and irreversible condition. The use of hearing instruments can bring a person back to the normal range depending on test results. It’s recommended to correct your hearing loss with the use of hearing aids sooner rather than later in order to maintain more speech understanding longer. We will perform a series of tests to see if the solution is hearing aids or a referral to another medical professional.
The most confusing part of hearing loss is it is frequency specific. The most common type of hearing loss is high-frequency hearing loss. The lower/deeper tones are more in the normal range than the higher/sharper ones. This is the reason people with hearing loss think others are mumbling because they need the sharpness of the higher tones back. This is also the reason people can hear in quiet situations but can’t with background noise. Although you think you may be getting along find recent Johns Hopkins Studies show it may be more beneficial to get hearing aids sooner than you realize.

Johns Hopkins studies

Dementia study
Johns Hopkins studies show that maintaining your hearing will also help with mental clarity as well as sense of balance.
“Seniors with hearing loss are significantly more likely to develop dementia over time than those who retain their hearing”

Balance study
“People with a 25-decibel hearing loss, classified as mild, were nearly three times more likely to have a history of falling. Every additional 10-decibels of hearing loss increased the chances of falling by 1.4 fold.”
These studies show the sooner we get stimulus on an acknowledged hearing loss the more we will be prepared for possible future implications. Bluetooth options now come standard in new technology for iPhone users in multiple technology levels.

Video Otoscopy

Have you ever seen your eardrum? The specialist will check your eardrum to make sure its clean, healthy, and ready for testing.
Audiologist

Air Conduction Test

This is a tonal test where the specialist will present a series of tones through headphones to confirm if the frequencies are in the normal range or not.
Bone Conduction

Bone Conduction Test

Like the air conduction test, it is also a tonal test but this time specialist presents the tones through a bone oscillator. This test confirms whether or not a medical issue is going on in the ear or if the solution is going to be volume.
Audiologist

Word Recognition Test

A series of words will be presented at a volume covering the loss to confirm that with the volume comes the clarity. If there is still an issue with clarity auditory deprivation most likely has occurred.

What is Auditory Deprivation?

Auditory Deprivation is a condition that occurs in individuals suffering from hearing loss where their brain loses the ability to interpret words due to a lack of stimulation over an extended period of time. This is the number 1 reason to address your hearing loss sooner rather than later!
