Signs of hearing loss beginning
In the course of the years, whether its is because of illness, an opeartion or ongoing loud sound, the auditory system can be stonrlgy influenced.
Basically, there are several types of hearing loss, resulting from various causes:
- Conductive hearing loss: Access to the inner ear is blocked. E.g. in case of infection of the middle ear.
- Sensorineural hearing loss: Inner hair cells of the conchlea are damaged wholly or partially. That's why there is no transmission of impulses to the brain, so that the tone is not not percieved correctly or at all.
- Mixed hearing loss: Hereby the combination of the two types are meant.
People affected often can't hear high frequency consonants properly or misunderstand similar sounding words. As a result they have to ask more often what was said. The TV volume is turned up, to understand the programm. Comprehension of words in a loud environment or in a big company is often difficult.
