Managing your hearing loss - stages If you get a cold, ‘flu or even a more serious disease such as diabetes or cancer, you manage it appropriately. Yet notoriously, those of us who fear we have a hearing loss most often take a very long time to do anything about it before we seek professional so we can better manage the symptoms. The first thing is to determine what hearing stage you are in. Mild Hearing loss You will experience some difficulty in understanding speech when there is background noise. When you watch television you may find the volume ok, but the speech is not always clear. Many people with a mild hearing loss will find it more difficult to understand higher pitched voices, those of children and women. Moderate Hearing loss Once you reach this stage you will avoid situations where there is background noise and your family will complain you have the television too loud.

*  Causes of Hearing Loss - A guide to Hearing Loss
... Hearing loss can be caused by many things such as age, over exposure to loud noise, hay fever, an injury, side effects of certain medicines, ear blockage or colds and congestion. It can also be caused any one of a number of ear conditions such as tinnitus, otitis media or otosclerosis. Even something relatively mild such as ear wax can cause problems if it is allowed to build up in the ear. Other less well known factors include ear piercing, cancer treatment such as chemotherapy or infections such as mumps or measles. Many of these cause hearing loss later on in life but some people start life with impaired hearing or a total inability to hear any sound or noise. Whether you view a complete lack of hearing as an extreme form of hearing loss or as deafness is still open to debate but the fact remains that the ear cannot function as normal which for some people, impacts upon their quality of life. You will probably be familiar with many of these causes but may be surprised by some of the others. The two mo...

... A blockage can be minor or major but what is common to both is that of hearing loss. The degree of hearing loss will depend upon the extent of the blockage. If the blockage is a minor one then hearing will only be moderately affected but a complete blockage in the ear will radically affect the ability to hear. It can be caused by excess ear wax but other forms of blockage include colds and sinusitis and objects in the ear. Colds and ear infections Blocked ears are just one of several symptoms of a cold. Excess mucus is produced as a result of a cold which collects in the ear canal and blocks it. This may be accompanied by a discharge, some pain and dizziness. Balance will also be affected. If you are suffering from earache as a result of these and these symptoms worsen then visit your GP. Objects in the ear Young children are fond of inserting various objects into their noses, mouths and ears. But if the object is still within the ear after 24 hours or causes swelling, bleeding and pain then seek medical...

FOR KIDS. For Kids. Kids Home. Causes of Hearing Loss. Treatment for Hearing Loss. Most children who are born with a hearing loss can be diagnosed through a hearing screening. If your baby does not pass the hearing screening, it doesn't necessarily mean there's a hearing loss. If your newborn doesn't pass the initial hearing screening, it's important to get a retest within 3 months so treatment can begin right away. Kids who seem to have normal hearing should continue to have their hearing evaluated at regular doctors' appointments. But if your child seems to have trouble hearing, if speech development seems abnormal, or if your child's speech is difficult to understand, talk with your doctor. Symptoms of a Hearing Loss Even if your newborn passes the hearing screening, continue to watch for signs that hearing is normal. Infants and young children frequently develop conductive hearing loss due to ear infections. The most common type is cochlear hearing loss and this may involve a specific part of the cochlea ...

What would you think if someone told you that a baby chick holds the cure for hearing loss? One of the keys to restoring normal hearing in humans is cochlear hair cell regeneration, something that most animals other than mammals, including chickens, can do. The Hearing Health Foundation recently launched a new public service announcement PSA called “Chirp the News” which features a baby chick with hearing loss who goes on to live a happy, normal-hearing life. After viewing it, my curiosity was piqued. I had an opportunity to ask Shari Eberts, Chairman of the HHF’s Board of Directors, a couple of questions and wanted to share what I learned.

In 70% of cases of genetic hearing loss, the cause is autosomal recessive ; therefore, Both parents are carriers of a gene that causes recessive hearing loss. At one of these locations, a parent my carry one of the recessive genes that can cause deafness and one of the dominant genes that is responsible for normal hearing. Because each parent has only one recessive gene that can cause hearing loss, both parents can hear. If the autosomal dominant gene also has other physical findings i.e., it is syndromic , the parent who has the dominant gene also may have some of these other physical findings. The findings from a genetic evaluation may be relevant for your child's medical care What is the likelihood that this will happen again with any other children in my family. If the cause of your child's hearing loss is an autosomal recessive gene, then the likelihood that this will happen in another child assuming the same partner is 1 in 4 25%.

EurekAlert. EurekAlert. About EurekAlert. ATS 2014, SAN DIEGO Both high and low frequency hearing impairment have been linked with sleep apnea in a new study of nearly 14,000 individuals. "In our population-based study of 13,967 subjects from the Hispanic Community Health Study/Study of Latinos, we found that sleep apnea was independently associated with hearing impairment at both high and low frequencies after adjustment for other possible causes of hearing loss," said lead author Amit Chopra, MD, currently at the Albany Medical Center in New York. High frequency hearing impairment was defined as having a mean hearing threshold of greater than 25 decibels in either ear at 2000, 3000, 4000, 6000 and 8000 Hz, and low frequency hearing impairment was defined as having a mean hearing threshold of greater than 25 decibels in either ear at 500 Hz and 1000 Hz.

John O Connor s post is about hearing loss from medication, which is not something I usually talk about at my blog. However, I ve spent about 30 hours including driving time over the last few weeks taking my mom to the audiologist to get fitted for a hearing aid. It s a very time consuming process, since they first tested her hearing, then they took a mold of her ear canal, and then they spent a very generous amount of time tweaking the hearing aid to optimize her hearing experience. The hearing aids are very good, but they do not cure her hearing loss; they just amplify sounds in an impressively sophisticated way. It would be nicer if she had more hearing. One way to protect your hearing is to avoid loud noises. Another way, it turns out, is to minimize your use of certain widely available medicines. Guest post by John O Connor. How Medications Can ...

NewsUSA - Data from many studies suggest that the incidence of Alzheimer's disease is on the rise. However, many of the symptoms associated with early Alzheimer's disease are the same as those associated with hearing loss. According to a recent study led by Frank R. Lin, MD, PhD, of Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, the risk of dementia increased among participants with at least a mild 25-decibel hearing loss. Participants with more severe hearing loss were most likely to be diagnosed with dementia -- and even Alzheimer's. Several symptoms are common to both Alzheimer's and untreated hearing loss. These symptoms include depression, anxiety, feelings of isolation, and problems talking and understanding what is being said. In addition, people with either Alzheimer's or unidentified hearing loss may have inappropriate responses to social cues, lower scores on tests of men...

Depression, anxiety, loneliness and social withdrawal have all been documented as symptoms of acquired hearing loss in adults. Rutman 1989 and Dineen 1990 both argue that acquired hearing loss can be more disabling than congenital hearing loss. People with acquired hearing loss often report that professionals seem to lack understanding and empathy and often confuse the treatment of those with acquired hearing loss with congenitally deaf people David & Trehub, 1989 ; Woolley, 1993. Lincoln and Denzin, two notable advocates of qualitative research term this crisis 'the fifth moment' 1994b. There exists only a small body of research on acquired deafness in adults.

Hearing loss is one of the most common health conditions in the United States. Hearing loss is the most common birth defect. There are three main types of hearing loss: conductive, sensorineural, and mixed. Conductive hearing loss is due to problems in the outer or middle ear that interfere with sound passing to the inner ear. It usually involves a decrease in sound level and can often be corrected by medical or surgical treatment. Causes of conductive hearing loss:. Blockage by ear wax Fluid in the middle ear Ear infection, also known as otitis media Otosclerosis a disorder of the bones in the middle ear Hole in the eardrum Abnormalities in the outer ear, middle ear, or ear canal Defect at birth that causes complete closure of the ear canal Tumors Trauma leading to disruption of the bones in the middle ear Sensorineural hearing loss is due to damage to the inner ear or the major n...

News from UW-Madison. UW-Madison > News > Now hear this: Mouse study ... The study has identified a gene that is essential to age-related hearing loss, a condition marked by deaths of sensory hair cells and spiral ganglion neurons in the inner ear. Free radicals trigger a process called apoptosis, or programmed cell death, by which damaged cells "commit suicide." Apoptosis is often beneficial, as it eliminates cells that may be destined for cancer. Before the study, it was already clear that "aging was associated with a major loss of hair cells and ganglion cells, so it was plausible that programmed cell death was playing a role in hearing loss," says Prolla. "We also thought that oxidative stress the presence of free radicals contributes to age-related hearing loss, so we put two and two together and showed that oxidative stress does indeed induce age-related hearing loss.". In mice, Prolla and the study's first author, Shinichi Someya, a postdoctoral researcher at UW-Madison, found that the suicide program ...

A risk factor is something that increases your likelihood of getting a disease or condition. However, the more risk factors you have, the greater your likelihood of developing hearing loss. If you have a number of risk factors, ask your healthcare provider what you can do to reduce your risk. Risk factors for hearing loss include:. Premature birth and low birth weight are risk factors for developing hearing loss. Low birth weight has an especially strong effect among full-term children. Exposure to loud noise is a major cause of and risk factor for hearing loss. Loud sounds can cause damage to the hearing nerve and hair cells in the inner ear. The loss can be caused by a single exposure to loud noise, such as an explosion, or by repeated exposure to loud sounds over a period of time, such as loud machinery in a workplace or loud music.

These electrical signals are carried by the auditory nerve to the brain, where they are interpreted as the sounds we perceive.

Compared to individuals with normal hearing, people with mild, moderate, and severe hearing loss, respectively, had a two-three- and five- fold increased risk of developing dementia, he told Newsmax Health.

Understanding Hearing Loss. Hearing loss varies from person to person – it varies by the degree of loss, the type of loss, the suitability of hearing technology available to meet the loss. It is also affected by the ability of the individual to adapt. What works for one person is not always the answer for others with hearing loss. It’s important to understand the complexity of hearing loss and show support for the hard of hearing person’s efforts to deal with their loss of hearing. Here are some facts to help in both understanding and support of the person with hearing loss:. Hard of hearing people do not hear more softly; they hear differently. People may lose the ability to hear high pitched sounds, or low pitched sounds; they may lose hearing in one ear and be unable to determine sound direction or origin; or they may lose the ability to hear in background noise; they may have tinnitus ringing or other noises in their ears that interfere with hearing at certain times.

... April 9, 2014 Pharma firms turn attention to hearing loss April 9, 2014 Hearing loss affects 36 million Americans to some degree, often leaving them feeling isolated, but it has received little attention from the pharmaceutical industry—until now. Small firms have brought a handful of potential therapies to the development pipeline, and pharmaceutical heavyweights are taking notice, according to an article in Chemical & Engineering News C&EN, the weekly magazine of the American Chemical Society. The story states that the most common cause of hearing loss is loud noise, either from a single event like the bang of a firecracker or from chronic exposure, say daily listening to a cranked-up iPod.

(1/91) Deaf children's use of phonological coding: evidence from reading, spelling, and working memory.

Two groups of deaf children, aged 8 and 14 years, were presented with a number of tasks designed to assess their reliance on phonological coding. Their performance was compared with that of hearing children of the same chronological age (CA) and reading age (RA). Performance on the first task, short-term recall of pictures, showed that the deaf children's spans were comparable to those of RA controls but lower than CA controls. For the older deaf children, short-term memory span predicted reading ability. There was no clear evidence that the deaf children were using phonological coding in short-term memory when recall of dissimilar items was compared with recall of items with similarly sounding names. In the second task, which assessed orthographic awareness, performance of the deaf children was similar to that of RA controls although scores predicted reading level for the deaf children but not the hearing. The final task was a picture spelling test in which there were marked differences between the deaf and hearing children, most notably in the number of spelling refusals (which was higher for the deaf children in the older group than their RA controls) and the percentage of phonetic errors (which was considerably lower for both groups of deaf children than for any of the hearing controls). Overall these results provide support for the view that deaf children place little reliance on phonological coding.  (+info)

(2/91) The relationship between reading achievement and morphological word analysis in deaf and hearing students matched for reading level.

This study extends the findings of Gaustad, Kelly, Payne, and Lylak (2002), which showed that deaf college students and hearing middle school students appeared to have approximately the same morphological knowledge and word segmentation skills. Because the average grade level reading abilities for the two groups of students were also similar, those research findings suggested that deaf students' morphological development was progressing as might be expected relative to reading level. This study further examined the specific relationship between morphologically based word identification skills and reading achievement levels, as well as differences in the error patterns of deaf and hearing readers. Comparison of performance between pairs of deaf college students and hearing middle school students matched for reading achievement level shows significant superiority of younger hearing participants for skills relating especially to the meaning of derivational morphemes and roots, and the segmentation of words containing multiple types of morphemes. Group subtest comparisons and item analysis comparisons of specific morpheme knowledge and word segmentation show clear differences in the morphographic skills of hearing middle school readers over deaf college students, even though they were matched and appear to read at the same grade levels, as measured by standardized tests.  (+info)

(3/91) The effects of simultaneous communication on production and perception of speech.

This article reviews experiments completed over the past decade at the National Technical Institute for the Deaf and the State University of New York at Geneseo concerning speech produced during simultaneous communication (SC) and synthesizes the empirical evidence concerning the acoustical and perceptual characteristics of speech in SC. Comparisons are drawn between SC and other modes of rate-altered speech that have been used successfully to enhance communication effectiveness. Of particular importance are conclusions regarding the appropriateness of speech produced during SC for communication between hearing and hearing-impaired speakers and listeners and the appropriateness of SC use by parents and teachers for speech development of children with hearing impairment. This program of systematic basic research adds value to the discussion about the use of SC by focusing on the specific implications of empirical results regarding speech production and perception.  (+info)

(4/91) The effects of phonological and morphological training on speech perception scores and grammatical judgments in deaf and hard-of-hearing children.

Seventeen primary school deaf and hard-of-hearing children were given two types of training for 9 weeks each. Phonological training involved practice of /s, z, t, d/ in word final position in monomorphemic words. Morphological training involved learning and practicing the rules for forming third-person singular, present tense, past tense, and plurals. The words used in the two training types were different (monomorphemic or polymorphemic) but both involved word final /s, z, t, d/. Grammatical judgments were tested before and after training using short sentences that were read aloud by the child (or by the presenter if the child was unable to read them). Perception was tested with 150 key words in sentences using the trained morphemes and phonemes in word final position. Grammatical judgments for sentences involving the trained morphemes improved significantly after each type of training. Both types of training needed to be completed before a significant improvement was found for speech perception scores. The results suggest that both phonological and morphological training are beneficial in improving speech perception and grammatical performance of deaf and hard-of-hearing children and that both types of training were required to obtain the maximum benefit.  (+info)

(5/91) Education of deaf students in Spain: legal and educational politics developments.

This article examines the legal instruments and educational politics affecting deaf persons' educational rights in Spain. We present a historical view of deaf education in Spain before and after the Congress of Milan (1880) and then introduce educational legislation and practices in recent decades. At present, Spanish legislation is moving toward recognition of sign languages and the suitability of bilingual education for deaf students at all educational levels. This is a consequence of taking into account the low academic achievement of two generations of deaf students educated in a monolingual model. Bilingual projects are now run throughout Spain. We emphasize that efforts must be made in the legal sphere to regulate the way in which professionals who know sign language and Deaf culture-teachers, interpreters, deaf adult models-are incorporated in bilingual deaf schools.  (+info)

(6/91) When parents are deaf versus hard of hearing: patterns of sign use and school placement of deaf and hard-of-hearing children.

This paper investigates the importance of knowing whether or not deaf and hard-of-hearing students have one or more deaf or hard-of-hearing parents. As noted by Mitchell and Karchmer (2004), deaf and hard-of-hearing school-age children and youth in the United States with at least one parent identified as "hearing impaired" are nearly evenly split between having at least one deaf parent and having at least one hard-of-hearing parent. However, there is no literature on the importance, if any, of this distinction. Findings from the investigation reported herein suggest that the distinction between having a deaf versus a hard-of-hearing parent is quite substantial, particularly as it pertains to the use of signing in the home. Further, signing in the home, which is reliably predicted by parental hearing status, is a significant predictor of the school setting in which the student is currently placed and the instructional use of signing in the classroom. Limitations related to the available measure of parental hearing status are discussed.  (+info)

(7/91) Tutoring deaf students in higher education: a comparison of baccalaureate and sub-baccalaureate student perceptions.

Seventy-three deaf college students completed a survey examining perceptions about tutoring outcomes and emphases, characteristics of tutors, and responsibilities associated with learning through tutoring. The comparisons revealed that while baccalaureate and sub-baccalaureate students have many similar perceptions about tutoring, there are also some striking differences. In particular, as compared to the sub-baccalaureate students, baccalaureate students have a stronger preference for focusing on course content and for working with tutors who actively involve them during the tutoring sessions. In addition, baccalaureate students prefer to decide the focus of the tutoring themselves while sub-baccalaureate students tend to leave the decision to the tutor. The results of the analyses with three scales measuring perceptions of tutoring dimensions are summarized and recommendations for the selection and preparation of tutors, as well as for future research, are provided.  (+info)

(8/91) Allegations of unlawful discrimination in education: parents taking their fight for Auslan to the courts.

This paper examines the use of the Disability Discrimination Act (Commonwealth of Australia, 1992) by parents seeking access for their deaf children to native sign language in the classroom. It reviews a number of cases in which Australian parents have claimed indirect discrimination by educational authorities over their children's lack of access to instruction through Australian Sign Language (Auslan) and discusses the outcomes of such litigation. The policies endorsed by deafness organizations are contrasted with those of state educational authorities. The author discusses the limitations of a complaints-based system to address systemic discrimination and suggests the need for legislation to protect the linguistic rights of deaf children.  (+info)
