Auditory Deprivation February 3, 2014 By Bob Page, Clinician What it is and how to protect yourself from its effects Auditory Deprivation Without treatment, you can have permanent and irreversible hearing loss 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 condition can affect hearing loss patients who do not wear hearing aids, wear old hearing aids or only wear one hearing aid when two may be necessary. Even those suffering from a mild hearing loss can be affected by this condition. If hearing loss is not treated, auditory deprivation can cause an irreversible loss of functionality. How does this happen? You must first understand the difference between hearing and understanding. Your ears function as instruments to collect sounds and deliver these sounds to your brain. The speech interpretation center of your brain processes these sounds into words. If your ears cannot hear the sounds, then your brain does not have anything to process. The lack of stimulation in this area of the brain causes you to lose the functionality of understanding speech. So, basically if you aren’t hearing the words, you eventually lose the ability to understand them. When our vision starts to fade, we usually wait to seek professional help until we absolutely need it. Any delay in seeking help is not usually a problem because glasses are able to correct the problem immediately. Treatment for hearing loss is quite different. The longer you delay seeking treatment for your hearing loss, the harder it will be to treat it. Those with profound hearing loss who have suffered for a number of years may not be able to regenerate some of their speech perception. However, most hearing losses can be sufficiently amplified with the use of hearing aids to allow for near normal to normal hearing. Hearing aids will help your ability to hear and thus, stimulate your brain to protect you from auditory deprivation. Auditory deprivation is not a guarantee if you suffer from hearing loss as long as you are proactive with your hearing health. Have your hearing tested, and if necessary find the appropriate treatment sooner rather than later. Hearing aids can be a tremendous help by providing the necessary stimulation your brain requires to continue to understand everyday speech. Auditory Deprivation is a “use it or lose it” issue, so it is imperative that you are take action today to ensure your ability to perceive speech does not continue to deteriorate over time.
Speech and hearing therapy are important health related specialties concerned with normal development of human communication and treatment of its disorders. Speech therapy focuses on voice and speech-language skills, while hearing therapy deals with hearing and hearing impairment. Speech or language disorders may be present at birth or acquired later in life by disease, illness, head injury, substance abuse or allergy. Hearing loss may be acquired before or during birth if a pregnant woman takes certain drugs or contracts a viral disease such as rubella. Children sometimes acquire hearing loss from infection and inflammation of the middle ear or from communicable diseases. Adult hearing may be affected by prolonged exposure to loud noise and the process of aging. For more information please contact us.
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.
