#Otitis Media It is an inflammation in the middle ear (the area behind the tympanic membrane) that is usually associated with the fluid accumulation Fluctuating hearing loss nearly always occurs with all types of otitis media. In fact it is the most common cause of hearing loss in young children If this hearing loss is untreated repetitively will have difficulty in auditory processing please consult ENT/Audiologist for more details #Pure tone Audiogram
Acquired hearing loss is a hearing loss which appears after birth, at any time in one's life, perhaps as a result of a disease, a condition, or an injury. The following are examples of conditions that can cause acquired hearing loss in children are: Ear infections (otitis media) Ototoxic (damaging to the auditory system) drugs Meningitis Measles Encephalitis Chicken pox Influenza Mumps Head injury Noise exposure
Cleft and Hearing Loss The hearing loss in a cleft patient is a well known documented, but generally gets ignored. These children continue to have recurrent otitis media with effusion that affects the hearing abilities. Unfortunatley the middle ear function may not improve with palatoplasty. Cleft palate teams need to follow up all such children beginning at birth and going into adulthood, decades after a ‘successful’ palate repair. These patients should have careful otological and audiological surveillance with appropriate interventions whenever required. untreated and fluctuating hearing loss has impact on speech, language, social an academic progress. # pure tone audiogram, impedance testing, brainstem evoked response
HYPERACUSIS: Hyperacusis is a hearing disorder characterized by an increased sensitivity to certain frequencies and volume ranges of sound. In such condition patients can hear at 10dB sound but can not tolerate 70-80dB sound. dynamic range for hearing is decreased. It is seen in children as well as adults. treatment for hyperacusis is really questionable. sound therapy is some what most suitable option. #hearing therapy #hearing aids
Speech and Language Delay and Hearing Loss Mild to profound hearing loss is one of most significant reason for delay. Early identification and intervention helps these children to restore the hearing capacities to normal by hearing aids or cochlear implant. Please contact aarav clinic panvel. Hearing Aids
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.

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.
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
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.
