Pediatric Hearing Evaluation is one of the challenging task for every audiologist. Detailed case history, selection of appropriate physiological electrophysiological and behavioural testing is a key. Established hearing thresholds helps us select proper hearing aid and auditory training/ auditory verbal therapy approach. Child need to be evaluated subsequently to measure the benefit of amplification device and therapy. If no significant benefit is obtained by hearing aid further, child should be subjected to cochlear implant evaluation. Aided Audiogram, radiological study and therapists feedback helps team to consider the child for cochlear implant. Cochlear implant has really changed the world of children with hearing impairment. The goal of team is to integrate the child in mainstream and should get every opportunity as any other child with normal hearing. #brainstem evoked response #otoacoustic emission #Digital Hearing Aid #Aided audiogram #auditory Verbal therapy
Digital Hearing Aids A digital hearing aid is a hearing device that receives sound and digitally codes (breaks sound waves up into very small, discrete units) before it gets amplified. A traditional analog hearing aid simply makes the sound wave larger to amplify sounds. Digital Hearing Devices have really rewritten the history in Hearing aid industry. Digital Aids are available in behind the ear, In the canal, completely in the canal forms. An analog hearing aids can only amplify incoming sound, and cannot adjust it, analog hearing aids very often amplify distracting background noise, making it challenging to hear in noisy environments and nearly impossible to understand conversation over the phone. We promote only Digital hearing aids in our clinic.
Speech Banana The speech banana is a area in which all the speech sounds of the language fall on an audiogram. An audiogram is a graphical representation of a person's hearing sensitivity at a range of frequencies and loudness levels, and it is generally presented with frequencies (in Hertz on the x-axis and decibel level (dB) on the y-axis. When the sounds of speech or phonemes of all known human languages are plotted on an audiogram, they cluster in a banana-shaped region known as the speech banana. People with normal hearing sensitivity can also hear sounds outside of the speech banana. These sounds include ambient natural sounds such as a rustling of leaves in the wind or birds chirping. Artificial sounds outside of the speech banana can include music and mechanical noises (e.g., automobiles, lawn mowers). Audiologists are primarily concerned with hearing loss that occurs within the speech banana because it can slow the development of a child’s language and speech abilities, and this in turn can profoundly interfere with learning. Hearing loss within the speech banana can also hinder communication capabilities in adults, as in elderly people with age-related hearing loss. Benefit of the hearing aid also showed with the help of speech banana. If all the aided (speech and tone) fall with the banana then we consider as significant benefit from the device. If not child or adults will be evaluated for other hearing devices options like, Cochlear implant.
Some causes of hearing loss in adults are: Otosclerosis Ménière's disease Autoimmune inner ear diseases Ototoxicity Noise Induced Hearing loss Acoustic neuroma Trauma to head or ear old age deafness acute supportive otitis media chronic supportive otitis hearing management options are Medication, surgery and/ hearing devices. your ent expert and audiologist will help you for better treatment.
An otoacoustic emission (OAE) is a low-level sound emitted by the cochlea either spontaneously or evoked by an auditory stimulus. Specifically, OAEs provide information related to the function of the outer hair cells (OHC). Present OAEs in an ear indicates that hearing mechanism is normal till the level of outer hair cells. This cells plays very crucial role in hearing system i.e. amplification of the sound. OAE can be done in 1 day old baby. oae has advantages over BERA test. Easily done, takes almost 3-5 minutes, not much preparing required, many children can be screened in short duration. If child fail on OAE wil be subjected for diagnostic audiological evaluation. and further management will be carried out.
