Mangement of hearing loss

Management of hearing Loss

By Ludo

  • If hearing loss is caused by a build up of material in the external ear, for exam wax, pus or any obstruction, this can be managed by physical removal of the object. The patient should have good hearing after that.
  • The overgrowth of outer ear canal bone is the body’s way of protecting the ear drum from the frequent rush of cold water against it which commonly occurs with surfing. They develop over many years and result in infections, pain, plugging and hearing loss. Only surgery can be done to remove the growth and regain hearing.
  • Stapedectomy is a surgical procedure of the middle ear done to improve hearing especially if loss was due to otoscerosis
  • Hearing aids placed on faulty ears are used to manage hearing loss
  • Cochlear implants are inserted in people who derived no benefit from using hearing aids
