Sudden Sensorineural Hearing Loss (SSNHL) SSNHL is commonly seen in audiology and otolaryngology practice. Individual present with sudden loss of hearing, tinnitus, vertigo, happing less than 72 hours of time. Hearing loss may vary from mild to profound and most often it is unilateral in nature. The majority of times an aetiology remain unknown. Prognosis depends on many factors like severity of loss, age, any other systematic conditions (i.e. Diabetes). Commonly treated with medication, carbogen therapy. It’s a medical emergency and needs urgent attention. #audiogram , # Hearing Aids , # SSNHL # Impedance Contact #Aarav Speech & Hearing Clinic, New Panvel, Navi Mumbai
CENTRAL AUDITORY PROCESSING DISORDER Our ear is divided in to outer hair, middle ear, inner ear, auditory nerve and central auditory nerves system. This type of problem found in all the ages from children to old age. Person suffering from auditory processing disorder will be able to hear in quite environment however the challenges will be observed in noisy situations. This is very complex disorder and needs long term attention. Behavioural testing as well as electro physiological testing helps in diagnosis.

Auditory neuropathy/auditory dyssynchrony (AN/AD) is a condition that affects the neural processing of auditory stimuli. Patients with AD/AN are able to respond to sounds accurately but their ability to decode speech and language is affected. AN/AD has only recently been described. In the late 1970s, clinical investigators began to describe groups of patients with normal or slightly elevated audiogram pure tone thresholds accompanied with absent or severely abnormal auditory brainstem responses (ABRs). With the advent of the otoacoustic emissions (OAEs) in the mid 1980s, these groups of patients were found to have normal cochlear function. The finding of normal cochlear function accompanied with abnormal brainstem responses was defined in 1996 as auditory neuropathy (AN). Whether this represents a true auditory nerve neuropathy is debatable. Further investigations led to the conclusion that AN may truly represent a dyssynchronous auditory nerve rather than a neuropathy. This finding gave rise to the newer term of auditory dyssynchrony (AD). [1] For the purposes of this summary, AN and AD are considered synonymous (ie, AN/AD). Now a days this condition commonly known as Auditory Neuropathy Spectrum Disorder (ANSD). Rather than just considering a condition some of researchers have labeled as syndrome. Treatment for ANSD is varies case to case and needs lot of trial and error method. Hearing aids have been effective of some of the cases where as cochlear implant is also being recommended strongly and found to be effective. Very short number of cases donot really benefits from above two option those advised to use communication strategies to be able to understand speech.
