Description

Hearing aids are small electronic devices that can be worn in or behind the ear in order to improve hearing. Hearings aids are commonly used by people with hearing loss which might have occurred due to any one of these three causes: 1. Disease2. Injury3. Aging Hearing aids help the user to listen better in both quiet and noisy environments. A typical hearing aid device has a microphone, an amplifier and a speaker. The hearing aid receives sound through the microphone and converts the sound waves into electrical signals and sends it to the amplifier, which, in turn, increases the strength of those signals and the sound finally travels to the ear of the person through the speaker.There are many styles of hearing aids that one can choose from, ranging from the ones that can be worn behind the ear to the ones that are hidden from the naked eye.The different styles are:1. Invisible Hearing Aids (IHA)2. Behind The Ear Hearing Aids (BTE)3. Receiver In Canal Hearing Aids (RIC)4. Completely In Canal Hearing Aids (CIC)5. In The Canal Hearing Aids (ITC)6. In The Ear Hearing Aids (ITE).

Symptoms

If a person experiences hearing loss, he/she should visit an ENT doctor (otolaryngologist or otologist) to rule out any medical conditions that might be interfering with hearing. As and when hearing loss is confirmed, treatment of the condition is done by an audiologist or ear specialist.An audiologist is a trained professional who is responsible for dispensing, managing and rehabilitating hearing aids. An audiologist conducts general screening tests, tuning fork tests and audiometer tests to ascertain the problem and intensity of the problem and suggest remedies accordingly.The hearing aid that will work best for you will depend on the kind and severity of your hearing loss. If there is hearing loss in both the ears, two hearing aids are generally recommended because two aids provide a natural experience. Understanding speech and locating the direction of sound will be better when two hearing aids are used. The audiologist will have the final say on whether one hearing aid will suffice or you would have to use two. A typical hearing aid lasts for about five to six years.Some hearing aids work even beyond six years but might need tune ups and repair services from time to time. Most hearing aids have a warranty of up to 2-3 years.

Risk And Complications

Disadvantages of different Hearing Aid styles:-1. Hearing aid users have a tendency to develop earwax clogging. (Earwax is a yellow wax like substance that protects the passage of the outer ear) 2. Behind The Ear (BTE) and In The Ear (ITE) hearing aids may pick up more wind noises than smaller, more compact styles. 3. CIC, ITC and ITE styles of hearing aids are not meant for children. It will be difficult for them to adjust the aids. Also the moulds will need to be constantly changed because the child will grow.
