Both children and adults can experience hearing loss. That is why it is important for individuals to have hearing testing performed. Dawn Bledsoe, Au.D., of Weston Audiology, will be providing patients with free hearing exams and hearing aid demonstrations for several days in January and February. The exams and demonstrations will take place on January 14 and 28 and February 11 and 25, at the Center Avenue office in Weston. Call 517-1401 for informa- tion and to make an appointment. The two types of hearing loss are conductive and sensorineural. Con- ductive hearing loss is caused by in- jury to, or problems with, the bones, eardrum and membranes, which carry sound from the external ear through the middle ear to the inner ear. This type of hearing loss can sometimes be medically or surgically corrected. Examples of conditions that may cause a conductive hearing loss in- clude conditions associated with middle ear problems, such as fluid in the middle ear from colds, allergies, poor eustachian tube function, ear in- fection, perforated eardrum, benign tumors, impacted earwax, infection in the ear canal, or presence of a foreign body. This type ofloss can also be caused by an absence or malformation of the outer ear, ear canal, or middle ear. Sensorineural hearing loss (also known as nerve deafness) occurs when the bones, eardrum and membranes are intact, but the inner ear (cochlea) deteriorates as the result of causes that can include the aging process or degeneration of nerves leading from the inner ear to the brain. Examples of conditions that may cause a sensorineural hearing loss in- clude: disease: birth injury; drugs that are toxic to the auditory system; ge- netic syndromes; noise exposure; vi- ruses; or tumors. Mixed hearing loss is when there are elements from both conductive and sensorineural hearing loss. This occurs when there is damage or dis- turbance to the outer or middle ear and damage to the inner ear. Because hearing loss is gradual, a person may not be aware of the extent of its loss until someone else brings it to his/her attention. It may be difficult to accept this news, but it is important to realize that recognizing a hearing loss is the first step toward improving the quality of life. Individuals are encouraged to see how a hearing aid can improve one's life.
