Audiology is a branch of science that studies hearing, balance, and related disorders. Audiology treat those with hearing loss and proactively prevent related damage. By employing various testing strategies (e.g. behavioral hearing tests, otoacoustic emission measurements, and electrophysiologic tests).

Audiology combines the best available technology with medical science to come up with solutions to hearing or balance disorders people have.

There are many causes of hearing loss :-

  1. 1. Being around loud noises often at work
  2. 2. Mowing the lawn or using power tools
  3. 3. Shooting guns or other weapons

  5. 5. Too much ear wax
  6. 6. Getting hit on the head
  7. 7. Having an infection
  8. 8. Taking certain drugs
  9. 9. Problems with hearing that run in the family


Who is an Audiologist?


People who practice audiology are called audiologists. Audiologists are responsible for managing and rehabilitation of disorders related to hearing as well as balance.

In addition to diagnosing audiologic and vestibular pathologies, audiologists can also specialize in rehabilitation of tinnitus, hyperacusis, misophonia, auditory processing disorders, cochlear implant use and/or hearing aid use. Audiologists can provide hearing health care from birth to end-of-life.

Hearing loss breaks down this way:-

  • Mild hearing loss : 26 to 40 decibels
  • Moderate hearing loss : 41 to 55 decibels
  • Moderate-to-severe hearing loss : 56 to 70 decibels
  • Severe hearing loss : 71 to 90 decibels
  • Profound hearing loss : 91 to 100 decibels

Treatment:-

The results of the diagnostic tests will help the audiologist to understand the disorder that a patient is suffering from so that they may plan the treatment. Most hearing related issues are resolved with auditory rehabilitation consultation, which includes the use of hearing aids.

Cochlear implant pre-evaluation and post- implantation care is also a regular treatment for hearing loss. The audiologist will also help the patient with communication skills counselling as well as helping the care givers of the patient and other family members counselling. Needless to say the audiologic evaluation is the basis of the treatment.
