Central Auditory Processing Disorders (CAPD) is supposed to be a type of physical hearing impairment but it does not demonstrate any hearing loss during routine screenings and on an audiogram. It actually impacts the hearing system way beyond your ear. This adversely affects the job of differentiating a meaningful or decipherable message from unnecessary background noise and delivering that information with proper clarity to the brain’s intellectual centres or our Central Nervous System. When you get incomplete or even distorted auditory messages, you tend to lose a key connection with other people and the world in general.
Hearing loss is a common phenomenon and it could affect individuals across all age groups. The main causes for hearing impairment could be hereditary factors, trauma, ear disease, noise exposure, and most importantly, age. Hearing loss is known to trigger cognitive decline and memory loss in older adults. Audiologists have been seeing a boost in demand for their services by aged clients whose communication issues are triggered by hearing impairment and cognitive decline. For all these aged people, early detection or diagnosis of cognitive decline is crucial as it is mandatory to provide prompt medical intervention and also assure social support.
Middle ear infection is also referred to as the otitis media and is triggered by some virus or bacteria. Middle ear infections are often known to occur simultaneously with allergies, cold, enlarged adenoids, throat, and nose infection. Generally, middle ear infections would be clearing up without any long-term effects or serious issues.
You could keep your hearing healthy only if you are conscious of the extent of your exposure to any loud sound. You could effectively protect your hearing and shield it from any issues in future provided you go on a genuine noise diet.
The cutting-edge Bluetooth technology is effective in allowing two hearing aids to communicate wirelessly with each other. Moreover, the user could be connecting to devices that are in his car or home such as the GPS, cell phone, DVD player, or even the computer.
