Encyclopedias as Topic: Works containing information articles on subjects in every field of knowledge, usually arranged in alphabetical order, or a similar work limited to a special field or subject. (From The ALA Glossary of Library and Information Science, 1983)Hearing Loss: A general term for the complete or partial loss of the ability to hear from one or both ears.Hearing Loss, Sensorineural: Hearing loss resulting from damage to the COCHLEA and the sensorineural elements which lie internally beyond the oval and round windows. These elements include the AUDITORY NERVE and its connections in the BRAINSTEM.Hearing Loss, Noise-Induced: Hearing loss due to exposure to explosive loud noise or chronic exposure to sound level greater than 85 dB. The hearing loss is often in the frequency range 4000-6000 hertz.Hearing Tests: Part of an ear examination that measures the ability of sound to reach the brain.Hearing Aids: Wearable sound-amplifying devices that are intended to compensate for impaired hearing. These generic devices include air-conduction hearing aids and bone-conduction hearing aids. (UMDNS, 1999)Hearing: The ability or act of sensing and transducing ACOUSTIC STIMULATION to the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM. It is also called audition.Spiral Ganglion: The sensory ganglion of the COCHLEAR NERVE. The cells of the spiral ganglion send fibers peripherally to the cochlear hair cells and centrally to the COCHLEAR NUCLEI of the BRAIN STEM.Cochlea: The part of the inner ear (LABYRINTH) that is concerned with hearing. It forms the anterior part of the labyrinth, as a snail-like structure that is situated almost horizontally anterior to the VESTIBULAR LABYRINTH.Neurobiology: The study of the structure, growth, activities, and functions of NEURONS and the NERVOUS SYSTEM.Medicine in ArtNeurons: The basic cellular units of nervous tissue. Each neuron consists of a body, an axon, and dendrites. Their purpose is to receive, conduct, and transmit impulses in the NERVOUS SYSTEM.Ear, Inner: The essential part of the hearing organ consists of two labyrinthine compartments: the bony labyrinthine and the membranous labyrinth. The bony labyrinth is a complex of three interconnecting cavities or spaces (COCHLEA; VESTIBULAR LABYRINTH; and SEMICIRCULAR CANALS) in the TEMPORAL BONE. Within the bony labyrinth lies the membranous labyrinth which is a complex of sacs and tubules (COCHLEAR DUCT; SACCULE AND UTRICLE; and SEMICIRCULAR DUCTS) forming a continuous space enclosed by EPITHELIUM and connective tissue. These spaces are filled with LABYRINTHINE FLUIDS of various compositions.Retina: The ten-layered nervous tissue membrane of the eye. It is continuous with the OPTIC NERVE and receives images of external objects and transmits visual impulses to the brain. Its outer surface is in contact with the CHOROID and the inner surface with the VITREOUS BODY. The outer-most layer is pigmented, whereas the inner nine layers are transparent.Tachycardia, Atrioventricular Nodal Reentry: Abnormally rapid heartbeats caused by reentry of atrial impulse into the dual (fast and slow) pathways of ATRIOVENTRICULAR NODE. The common type involves a blocked atrial impulse in the slow pathway which reenters the fast pathway in a retrograde direction and simultaneously conducts to the atria and the ventricles leading to rapid HEART RATE of 150-250 beats per minute.Neural Networks (Computer): A computer architecture, implementable in either hardware or software, modeled after biological neural networks. Like the biological system in which the processing capability is a result of the interconnection strengths between arrays of nonlinear processing nodes, computerized neural networks, often called perceptrons or multilayer connectionist models, consist of neuron-like units. A homogeneous group of units makes up a layer. These networks are good at pattern recognition. They are adaptive, performing tasks by example, and thus are better for decision-making than are linear learning machines or cluster analysis. They do not require explicit programming.Cochlear Implants: Electronic hearing devices typically used for patients with normal outer and middle ear function, but defective inner ear function. In the COCHLEA, the hair cells (HAIR CELLS, VESTIBULAR) may be absent or damaged but there are residual nerve fibers. The device electrically stimulates the COCHLEAR NERVE to create sound sensation.Patents as Topic: Exclusive legal rights or privileges applied to inventions, plants, etc.Electric Stimulation: Use of electric potential or currents to elicit biological responses.Cochlear Implantation: Surgical insertion of an electronic hearing device (COCHLEAR IMPLANTS) with electrodes to the COCHLEAR NERVE in the inner ear to create sound sensation in patients with residual nerve fibers.Oculomotor Muscles: The muscles that move the eye. Included in this group are the medial rectus, lateral rectus, superior rectus, inferior rectus, inferior oblique, superior oblique, musculus orbitalis, and levator palpebrae superioris.Tongue: A muscular organ in the mouth that is covered with pink tissue called mucosa, tiny bumps called papillae, and thousands of taste buds. The tongue is anchored to the mouth and is vital for chewing, swallowing, and for speech.Eustachian Tube: A narrow passageway that connects the upper part of the throat to the TYMPANIC CAVITY.Tympanic Membrane: An oval semitransparent membrane separating the external EAR CANAL from the tympanic cavity (EAR, MIDDLE). It contains three layers: the skin of the external ear canal; the core of radially and circularly arranged collagen fibers; and the MUCOSA of the middle ear.Physiology: The biological science concerned with the life-supporting properties, functions, and processes of living organisms or their parts.Taste Buds: Small sensory organs which contain gustatory receptor cells, basal cells, and supporting cells. Taste buds in humans are found in the epithelia of the tongue, palate, and pharynx. They are innervated by the CHORDA TYMPANI NERVE (a branch of the facial nerve) and the GLOSSOPHARYNGEAL NERVE.Air Pressure: The force per unit area that the air exerts on any surface in contact with it. Primarily used for articles pertaining to air pressure within a closed environment.Chemically-Induced Disorders: Disorders caused by the intentional or unintentional ingestion or exposure to chemical substances such as PHARMACEUTICAL PREPARATIONS; NOXAE; and PESTICIDES.Carcinogens: Substances that increase the risk of NEOPLASMS in humans or animals. Both genotoxic chemicals, which affect DNA directly, and nongenotoxic chemicals, which induce neoplasms by other mechanism, are included.9,10-Dimethyl-1,2-benzanthracene: 7,12-Dimethylbenzanthracene. Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon found in tobacco smoke that is a potent carcinogen.Anticarcinogenic Agents: Agents that reduce the frequency or rate of spontaneous or induced tumors independently of the mechanism involved.Lateral Line System: Aquatic vertebrate sensory system in fish and amphibians. It is composed of sense organs (canal organs and pit organs) containing neuromasts (MECHANORECEPTORS) that detect water displacement caused by moving objects.Expert Systems: Computer programs based on knowledge developed from consultation with experts on a problem, and the processing and/or formalizing of this knowledge using these programs in such a manner that the problems may be solved.Algorithms: A procedure consisting of a sequence of algebraic formulas and/or logical steps to calculate or determine a given task.Telemetry: Transmission of the readings of instruments to a remote location by means of wires, radio waves, or other means. (McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 4th ed)National Socialism: The doctrines and policies of the Nazis or the National Social German Workers party, which ruled Germany under Adolf Hitler from 1933-1945. These doctrines and policies included racist nationalism, expansionism, and state control of the economy. (from Columbia Encyclopedia, 6th ed. and American Heritage College Dictionary, 3d ed.)Magnetic Resonance Imaging: Non-invasive method of demonstrating internal anatomy based on the principle that atomic nuclei in a strong magnetic field absorb pulses of radiofrequency energy and emit them as radiowaves which can be reconstructed into computerized images. The concept includes proton spin tomographic techniques.Brain Mapping: Imaging techniques used to colocalize sites of brain functions or physiological activity with brain structures.Genetics, Behavioral: The experimental study of the relationship between the genotype of an organism and its behavior. The scope includes the effects of genes on simple sensory processes to complex organization of the nervous system.Communication: The exchange or transmission of ideas, attitudes, or beliefs between individuals or groups.Twin Studies as Topic: Methods of detecting genetic etiology in human traits. The basic premise of twin studies is that monozygotic twins, being formed by the division of a single fertilized ovum, carry identical genes, while dizygotic twins, being formed by the fertilization of two ova by two different spermatozoa, are genetically no more similar than two siblings born after separate pregnancies. (Last, J.M., A Dictionary of Epidemiology, 2d ed)Pituitary Gland: A small, unpaired gland situated in the SELLA TURCICA. It is connected to the HYPOTHALAMUS by a short stalk which is called the INFUNDIBULUM.Peer Review: An organized procedure carried out by a select committee of professionals in evaluating the performance of other professionals in meeting the standards of their specialty. Review by peers is used by editors in the evaluation of articles and other papers submitted for publication. Peer review is used also in the evaluation of grant applications. It is applied also in evaluating the quality of health care provided to patients.Pituitary Hormones: Hormones secreted by the PITUITARY GLAND including those from the anterior lobe (adenohypophysis), the posterior lobe (neurohypophysis), and the ill-defined intermediate lobe. Structurally, they include small peptides, proteins, and glycoproteins. They are under the regulation of neural signals (NEUROTRANSMITTERS) or neuroendocrine signals (HYPOTHALAMIC HORMONES) from the hypothalamus as well as feedback from their targets such as ADRENAL CORTEX HORMONES; ANDROGENS; ESTROGENS.Peer Review, Research: The evaluation by experts of the quality and pertinence of research or research proposals of other experts in the same field. Peer review is used by editors in deciding which submissions warrant publication, by granting agencies to determine which proposals should be funded, and by academic institutions in tenure decisions.Bulimia: Eating an excess amount of food in a short period of time, as seen in the disorder of BULIMIA NERVOSA. It is caused by an abnormal craving for food, or insatiable hunger also known as "ox hunger".Circadian Rhythm: The regular recurrence, in cycles of about 24 hours, of biological processes or activities, such as sensitivity to drugs and stimuli, hormone secretion, sleeping, and feeding.Internet: A loose confederation of computer communication networks around the world. The networks that make up the Internet are connected through several backbone networks. The Internet grew out of the US Government ARPAnet project and was designed to facilitate information exchange.Judgment: The process of discovering or asserting an objective or intrinsic relation between two objects or concepts; a faculty or power that enables a person to make judgments; the process of bringing to light and asserting the implicit meaning of a concept; a critical evaluation of a person or situation.Language: A verbal or nonverbal means of communicating ideas or feelings.Speech: Communication through a system of conventional vocal symbols.Curriculum: A course of study offered by an educational institution.

I was reading an article today about how a person was able to edit Wikipedia articles to help with his online niche websites and I wanted to try to test this idea.. I have been using Wikipedia as a resource to do research since I was in college and it has been amazingly helpful and useful. It seems that anyone in the world can edit the Wikipedia articles as long as they are really being helpful and trying to create a better resource.. So I created my own Wikipedia account under the username Height_Analyst and did a slight edit on the articles for Low Intensity Pulsed Ultrasound and Epiphyseal Plate. Right after the sentence where it states that Dr. Chen of the University of Alberta thinks that LIPUS can possibly lead to "grow taller by stimulating bone growth" I added the sentence "However it has not been shown to be able to help in bone longitudinal growth when combined with bioengineered cartilage pellets for growth plate induced fractures". I referenced this study from a university in ...

This will be a semester-long assignment, with milestones at various times to help ensure that progress is being made.. Students will be assigned to groups of two or three students each, and each group will have main responsibility for one Wikipedia article, and will act as a peer reviewer for one other groups article. The goal of the assignment is to make a substantive contribution to a Wikipedia article on a topic of Molecular Biology. Each group will choose an article thats in need of work, and your goal is to improve upon the article, within the timeframe of this semester.. Group members should, as much as possible, help each other out with questions about how to do things on Wikipedia. You should strive to communicate the Wikipedia way -- on user talk pages; but (especially before Unit 3) you can use the Blackboard discussion forum if you need to. If, as a group, you still have a question or a problem, dont hesitate to contact the Online Ambassador.. ...
simpleshow is an organization which produces explainer videos.

Medicines that damage the ear and cause hearing loss are known as ototoxic medicines. They are a common cause of hearing loss, especially in older adults who have to take medicine on a regular basis. In most cases, hearing loss occurs because the medicine damages the cochlea in the inner ear.. Hearing loss caused by an ototoxic medicine tends to develop quickly. The first symptoms usually are ringing in the ears (tinnitus) and vertigo. Hearing usually returns to normal after you stop taking the medicine. But some medicines can cause permanent damage to the inner ear. This results in permanent hearing loss even if you stop taking the medicine.. Commonly used medicines that may cause hearing loss include:. ...
BACKGROUND: Self-reported hearing measures are useful for surveying hearing loss in a population because they are short, and easy to administer by either questionnaire or telephone. This study aims to assess the performance of several self-reported hearing measures to identify hearing loss in a group of Iowa farmers. METHODS: The study subjects were 98 male farmers who participated in the Iowa Fa

Hearing loss (presbycusis) is fairly common among people over the age of 50. Studies have indicated that age and kidney disease are two factors that can influence hearing loss. One study indicated that some degree of hearing loss was associated with 54 percent of people with moderate kidney disease. Of that 54 percent, 30 percent of them actually suffered from significant hearing loss. It is not suggested, in the study, that kidney disease actually causes loss of hearing; the study only states that there is a connection between hearing loss and kidney disease.. Statistics of hearing loss among people with kidney disease. The incidence of hearing loss among those with kidney disease is higher than the percentage of people in the general population, of people over 50, who suffers from hearing loss. Generally, the percentage of hearing loss in people over 50 without kidney problems is about 18 percent; this statistic comes from the National Institute on Deafness.. If you are an older person, ...

In the present study, we performed OTOF mutation analysis using massively ...
Background: Mutations in GJB2 are the most common molecular defects responsible for autosomal recessive nonsyndromic hearing impairment (NSHI). The mutation spectra of this gene vary among different ethnic groups. Methods: In order to understand the spectrum and frequency of GJB2 mutations in the Chinese population, the coding region of the GJB2 gene from 2063 unrelated patients with NSHI was PCR amplified and sequenced. Results: A total of 23 pathogenic mutations were identified. Among them, five (p.W3X, c.99delT, c.155_c.158delTCTG, c.512_c.513insAACG, and p.Y152X) are novel. Three hundred and seven patients carry two confirmed pathogenic mutations, including 178 homozygotes and 129 compound heterozygotes. One hundred twenty five patients carry only one mutant allele. Thus, GJB2 mutations account for 17.9% of the mutant alleles in 2063 NSHI patients. Overall, 92.6% (684/739) of the pathogenic mutations are frame-shift truncation or nonsense mutations. The four prevalent mutations; c.235delC, ...
Define conductive hearing loss. conductive hearing loss synonyms, conductive hearing loss pronunciation, conductive hearing loss translation, English dictionary definition of conductive hearing loss. Noun 1. conductive hearing loss - hearing loss due to problems with the bones of the middle ear conduction deafness, middle-ear deafness hearing disorder,...
Hearing loss affects a large portion of the population and occurs not only due to aging - in many cases it can be noise induced. It is important to know which situations put hearing in danger and thus should be avoided and to note that hearing impairment may be gradual and exacerbated with time. This means that once incurred it should not be treated as a final condition but measures should be taken to preserve residual hearing. Hearing loss, besides defined by type (sensorineural, conductive or mixed), can be classified by severity as well. The degree of hearing loss is measured in decibels and is grouped in four basic ranges. Mild hearing loss Many hard of hearing have the mildest level of hearing loss and it quite often occurs with the progression of the age. People with mild hearing loss experience difficulties with sounds ranging from 26dB to 40dB. The usual manifestation of this hearing impairment level is when the speaker is away from the listener or the conversation is held in a ...
Sensorineural hearing loss is the most common type of hearing loss. More than 90 percent of all hearing aid wearers have sensorineural hearing loss. The most common causes of sensorineural hearing loss are age related changes and noise exposure. A sensorineural hearing loss may also result from disturbance of inner ear circulation, increased inner fluid pressure or from disturbances of nerve transmission. Sensorineural hearing loss is also called "cochlear loss," an "inner ear loss" and is also commonly called "nerve loss." Years ago, many professionals said there was nothing that could be done for sensorineural hearing loss that is totally incorrect today. There are many excellent options for the patient with sensorineural hearing loss ...
A good starting point for anyone thinking about how hearing loss relates to workers compensation is to understand the kinds of hearing loss. Hearing loss is divided into three types. Conductive hearing loss is caused by problems in the outer or middle ear that prevent some frequencies from reaching the inner ear, where sounds are converted into electrical signals that the brain interprets. Conductive hearing loss can be caused by things like ear infections, fluid from colds, or punctured ear drums. Exposure to loud noise doesnt cause conductive hearing loss. Work-related conductive hearing loss would need to involve something more than just noise: an object getting stuck in the outer ear, for example. Sensorineural hearing loss is the second type. It takes place in the inner ear and can be caused by aging, genetic predisposition, or illnesses. It can also be caused by exposure to loud noises, making it the more likely type of hearing loss to be covered by workers compensation. The third type ...
As the 2nd most common type of hearing loss, conductive hearing loss affects people of all ages and is often temporary and resolvable. Conductive hearing loss presents itself when there is some form of damage to the outer or middle ear, whether a blockage in the ear canal or a disorder in the middle-ear structures. Because sound waves arent able to travel effectively from the outer or middle ear to the inner ear, a person with conductive hearing loss usually experiences sounds as muffled or distant.. Conductive hearing loss differs from the most common type of hearing loss - sensorineural - in that while conductive hearing loss is primarily an acoustic conduction problem, sensorineural hearing loss is primarily an acoustic generation or perception problem. An individual with conductive loss hears sounds more quietly than they would normally, but an individual with sensorineural loss may hear things in a distorted manner as well.. ...
Mixed hearing loss is a form of hearing loss in which a conductive hearing loss occurs with a sensorineural hearing loss (ASHA, n/d, http://www.asha.org/public/hearing/Mixed-Hearing-Loss/). Conductive hearing losses can be identified on the audiogram by an air-bone gap, whereas the bone conduction hearing test (symbols: , , ) and the air conduction hearing test (symbols: x O) are not at the same hearing levels. Sensorineural hearing losses have no bone-air gap and symbols (,, o) and (,, x) overlap. Mixed hearing losses have frequencies with both gaps and no gaps.

By Seilesh Babu, M.D., Michigan Ear Institute. Hearing loss is one of the most common conditions affecting otology patients whether as a newborn or aging patient. Hearing loss can significantly impact ones ability to communicate leading to reduced quality of life, isolation, and even depression. Seeking medical help to assist with this hearing loss can be the biggest obstacle for many patients who do not want to acknowledge a hearing issue. However, if the problem is properly managed with hearing aid assistance or surgical therapy, improvement in the patients quality of life including anxiety, depression, frustration, and social isolation will be positively impacted.. In our practice at the Michigan Ear Institute, we see thousands of patients annually with hearing loss concerns in all age groups. Some of unilateral hearing loss and many have bilateral hearing loss, ranging from mild to profound. Unilateral hearing loss can be caused by not having an ear canal form (canal atresia) or, from ...
Conductive hearing loss and treatments - Conductive hearing loss is the second most common form of hearing loss. Sound is unable to get transmitted to the inner ear. Due to a variety of reasons. Your hearing problem may have come on suddenly or slowly progressed over time.. Some common causes of conductive hearing loss are, built up ear wax, foreign objects in your ear canal such as a small insect. This is especially common in small children. Other reasons may be from an ear infection, fluid in the inner ear, trauma to the ossicular chain such as temporal bone fracture, tumors of the middle ear, erosion of the ossicular chain and perforation of the tympanic membrane.. Swimmers ear is also a cause for sudden conductive hearing loss. If you are suffering from some form of infection it is advised that you visit your doctor for a prescription of antibiotics. If it is a mild infection you can treat yourself at home with natural remedies.. The good news is that most conductive hearing loss can be ...
You have some options if you think you have a hearing problem and are thinking about getting hearing aids. You can see your doctor or an audiologist and be fit for prescription hearing aids by a licensed hearing aid provider. But you might consider buying an over-the-counter (OTC) hearing aid.. If you choose to use an audiologist, he or she can help determine what type of hearing aid will work best for you. The audiologist will pick a hearing aid based on the type and how much hearing loss you have and other factors. He or she can help you learn how to get the most out of your hearing aids. In general, it usually is better to wear hearing aids in both ears, even if the hearing loss in the ears is not equal.. Prescription hearing aids need to be fitted by someone trained specifically in hearing problems. An audiologist or licensed hearing aid provider can make sure your hearing aids fit and work for your type and degree of hearing loss.. Over-the-counter hearing aids, which may be called personal ...

Each part of the ear has an important role in providing sound information to the brain. Hearing loss is caused by damage to one or more parts of the outer, middle or inner ear. In order to understand the hearing loss well, we need to understand the anatomy of the ear and the way of hearing. An overview of it will be described in the following explanation.. Hearing loss should always be diagnosed by a hearing doctor, such as an audiologist or an ENT specialist. They will test hearing to determine the type and extent of the damage. An audiogram, will illustrate the findings of the auditory test.. There are four types of hearing loss:. The first and most common type of sensorineural hearing loss is caused by the loss or destruction of nerve cells (hair cells) in the cochlea. Conductive hearing loss indicates a problem in the outer or middle ear that causes no sound to sound ...

Misconception #1: Hearing loss only happens to the elderly. Reality: Hearing loss affects people of all ages. According to an article by AARP 40% of the 48 million Americans with hearing loss are under 60 years old. Close to 30% of those between the ages 50 and 59 suffer from some degree of impaired hearing in one or both ears; 45% of people between 60 and 69 have some degree of impaired hearing; and three-quarters of those older than 70 have declined hearing. A 2010 Journal of the American Medical Association study found that 1 in 5 US children ages 12 to 19 showed some sign of hearing loss in one or both ears. Hearing Health. Misconception #2: Hearing loss doesnt affect the rest of my health.. Reality: Hearing loss has been connected to cognitive decline, dementia, falls, social isolation and depression. Researchers are now studying whether treating the hearing loss can reverse or even prevent some of these conditions. A 2015 French study examining population-based data spanning 25 years ...
There is a link between hearing loss and Alzheimers disease, according to a study by researchers at Johns Hopkins Medicine. Dr. Frank Lin and his team followed more than 600 people for nearly 12 years. The participants degree of hearing loss paralleled their risk of later developing dementia or Alzheimers disease. For each 10-decibel loss in hearing, the risk of dementia increased about 20 percent. In other words, the risk doubled with mild hearing loss, tripled with moderate hearing loss, and soared fivefold among those with severe hearing loss. Lin speculates that the brain is overstressed by trying to pick up what it is missing. By devoting more of its resources to hearing, the brain neglects other functions. Social isolation may contribute to a greater risk of age-related disorders as well, according to Dr. Lin. The unanswered question from his research is whether improved hearing through the use of cochlear implants and hearing aids, or improved communication through learning sign ...
There are different types of hearing loss including conductive hearing loss, sensorineural hearing loss and mixed hearing loss.. Conductive hearing loss - caused by any condition or disease that impedes the conveyance of sound in its mechanical form through the middle ear cavity to the inner ear. This results in reduction of intensity (loudness), so the energy reaching the inner ear is lower or less intense than originally intended.. Sensorineural hearing loss - caused by inner ear or auditory nerve dysfunction. This may result from an inability of the hair cells to stimulate the nerves of hearing or a metabolic problem in the fluids of the inner ear. It can also result from damage to the inner ear organs.. Mixed hearing loss - a combination of the above 2 types, where in addition to some irreversible hearing loss caused by an inner ear or auditory nerve disorder, there is ...
Purpose. To examine how road users with different degree of hearing loss experience safety and mobility in transport situations, compared to road users with normal hearing.. Methods. A questionnaire study was conducted with participants recruited from the local branch of The Swedish hard of hearing society. A normal hearing control group, matched on age, gender and geographical location, was selected from a commercial database. The response rate was 35 % (n = 194) in the group with Hearing Loss (HL) and 42 % (n = 125) in the group with Normal Hearing (NH). The individuals with hearing loss were grouped into four groups according to the degree of their hearing loss (mild, moderate, severe and profound).. Results. Hearing loss affected some specific aspects regarding transport situations, while others remained unaffected. Individuals with hearing loss were not as likely to have a driving license, but for those who have, hearing loss had no effect on mileage per year. Loss of hearing had an effect ...
There are many other descriptors associated with hearing loss. Below are a few common terms:. Bilateral Hearing Loss refers to a hearing loss that occurs in both ears.. Unilateral Hearing Loss refers to a hearing loss that presents in only one ear. In some cases unilateral hearing loss may be referred to as single-sided deafness.. Symmetrical Hearing Loss refers to a loss that is at the same level in both ears.. Asymmetrical Hearing Loss refers to a loss that presents at different levels in each ear.. Progressive Hearing Loss means that hearing loss becomes worse over time. An individual with progressive hearing loss may begin with a mild loss that progresses to moderate, severe or even profound over time.. Sudden Hearing Loss (also referred to as rapid onset or acute hearing loss) occurs without warning. Such a hearing loss requires immediate medical attention to determine its cause and treatment. In many cases, this type of hearing loss can be treated or even reversed ...
Tradies across the country are at risk of developing permanent hearing loss due to noise hazards on the job. Tradies are being urged to listen to the latest guidelines on how to protect their hearing health. Its as simple as wearing hearing protection devices - at work and during leisure time.. Hearing loss due to excessive noise from machinery and power tools is one of the most widespread, yet preventable, workplace injuries.. But there is good news, with recent findings showing that tradies who use hearing protection devices at work are also more likely to use them during noisy leisure pursuits.. A national survey of more than 8,000 Australian adults conducted by the National Acoustic Laboratories (NAL), the research division of Australian Hearing, reveals that workplace users of hearing protection devices are five times more likely to use them at leisure. Men were significantly more likely than women to use hearing protection in 10 out of 20 leisure activities, and those with tinnitus were ...

An estimated 12.5% of children and adolescents aged 6-19 years (approximately 5.2 million) and 17% of adults aged 20-69 years (approximately 26 million) have suffered permanent damage to their hearing from excessive exposure to noise.3,4. Hearing loss can result from damage to structures and/or nerve fibers in the inner ear that respond to sound. This type of hearing loss, termed "noise-induced hearing loss," is usually caused by exposure to excessively loud sounds and cannot be medically or surgically corrected. Noise-induced hearing loss can result from a one-time exposure to a very loud sound, blast, or impulse, or from listening to loud sounds over an extended period.. ...

In the first few weeks of life your baby will have several routine health checks. One of these checks offered is a free newborn hearing screen. The hearing screen is performed prior to discharge from hospital by the midwife or designated screener and is most often performed at the babys bedside. South Australia uses Automated Auditory Brainstem Response (AABR) assessment to check the babys hearing status. This technology is a valid and reliable method of determining whether a baby has a significant hearing loss or not.. If a pass results is not obtained in one or both ears, a second AABR will be offered by your local Child and Family Health Nurse. If a pass results is not obtained following two valid hearing screens, further assessment by an audiologist is recommended. The Child and Family Health nurse will refer the child to the Universal Neonatal Hearing Screening Program for further assessment.. The aim of the hearing test is to get a complete picture of the babys ...
Figure 7-4 Pure tone hearing performance of conductive hearing loss. Figure 7-5 Pure tone hearing performance of sensorineural hearing loss. The main clinical manifestation of conductive deafness is "inaudible", because the impairment of sound transmission attenuates the sound, and the speech intelligibility of early patients does not decrease significantly. The design purpose of the hearing aid itself is to amplify the sound, so the effect of matching hearing aids for conductive deaf patients is relatively easy to see, and it is sure to benefit from hearing aids.. Sensorineural deafness is a collective term for sound sensations and nerve impulse conduction disorders that occur during the auditory conduction pathway. Among them, if the lesion is located in the hearing hair cells of the cochlea, it is also called sensorineural deafness or cochlear deafness, which is often ...
OBJECTIVE: The immunosuppressive agent cyclosporin A (CsA) has contributed to the success of organ and bone marrow transplantation. CsA-related neurotoxicity is a well-known occurrence. Sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) due to initiation of CsA treatment is an extremely rare finding. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A 32-year-old man who had undergone technically uneventful cadaveric renal transplantation for focal glomerulosclerosis when 25 years old was evaluated as the result of a 10-month history of bilateral hearing loss. The patient had been taking only CsA (150 mg twice daily) and methylprednisolone. RESULTS: Progressive bilateral SNHL was confirmed by an audiological examination. Eight months after dose reduction of CsA, pure-tone audiometry excluded progression of hearing loss. CONCLUSIONS: To the best of our knowledge, only rare cases of CsA-related hearing loss have been reported, and none after long-term CsA treatment. Audiological findings confirmed the cochlear origin of SNHL in our patient. ...

Despite the existence of an OSHA standard for hearing conservation, noise-induced hearing loss continues to be one of the most prevalent occupational conditions. Furthermore, hearing loss rates appear to vary significantly between industrial locations with similar measured noise exposure levels. The factors that determine an effective hearing conservation program remain poorly understood. The effective use of hearing protection, believed to be a critical component of such programs, is felt to be highly variable in real world situations. Provocative new data by our research group indicate that much of the preventable hearing loss in a large industrial workforce is occurring not among the workers in the highest ambient noise areas, but instead among employees working in areas where measured ambient median noise exposures are close to or even slightly below the current OSHA action level (85dBA for an 8 hour time weighted average). One possible reason could be that the use of hearing protection is ...

High dose sodium salicylate causes moderate, reversible hearing loss and tinnitus. Salicylate-induced hearing loss is believed to arise from a reduction in the electromotile response of outer hair cells (OHCs) and/or reduction of KCNQ4 potassium currents in OHCs which decreases the driving force for the transduction current. Therefore, enhancing OHC potassium currents could potentially prevent salicylate-induced temporary hearing loss. In this study, we tested whether opening voltage-gated potassium channels using ICA-105665, a novel small molecule that opens KCNQ2/3 and KCNQ3/5 channels, can reduce salicylate-induced hearing loss. We found that systemic application of ICA-105665 at 10 mg/kg prevented the salicylate-induced amplitude reduction and threshold shift in the compound action potentials recorded at the round window of the cochlea. ICA-105665 also prevented the salicylate-induced reduction of distortion products of otoacoustic emission (DPOAE). These results ...

In superior canal dehiscence syndrome, conductive hearing is better than normal. When combined with a sensorineural hearing loss, this pattern may look superficially like a conductive hearing loss, because there is an air-bone gap. The treatment of SCD may eliminate the air-bone gap. Practically, this is a very uncommon situation, of much more interest to diagnosticians than patients. In the Large Vestibular Aqueduct syndrome there is enlargement of the endolymphatic duct that connects the endolymphatic compartment to the endolymphatic sac (which lies just under the dura of the posterior fossa, ES above). Persons with LVAS may develop hearing loss as well as be unusually vulnerable to inner ear disease associated with head injury. Merchant et al (2007) have reported that conductive loss is common in LVAS, and that it has a mechanism similar to the conductive loss in SCD (see above). ...
Introduction: Hearing loss is fairly a common disorder which is usually treated with corticosteroids via systemic administration and/or intra-tympanic injection. This study aimed to compare the effectiveness of intra-tympanic injections of dexamethasone with its combination with hyaluronic acid in patients with sudden sensorineural hearing loss. Materials and Methods: In this clinical trial, 40 patients were randomly assigned to two groups; in the first group, 20 patients received 2.4 mg intra-tympanic dexamethasone, while in the second group patients received injections of 2.4 mg of dexamethasone plus 2 mg of hyaluronic acid in combination. Patients in both groups were injected every other day to a total of three injections. The hearing status of patients was evaluated by pure tone audiometry (bone conduction threshold) before and 2 weeks after the intervention. Results: Assessment of hearing threshold before and after treatment in the two groups showed a significant difference between hearing
SSHL (Sudden Sensorineural Hearing Loss) is a form of sensorineural acoustic loss that is rapid and usually unexplainable. The loss of hearing from SSHL may happen in a singular moment or occur over several days and generally affects only 1 ear, with 9 out of 10 people presenting unilaterally. SSHL should be treated as an aural emergency, and with treatment, most cases recover either completely or partially.. PBHL (Progressive Bilateral Hearing Loss) is a form of sensorineural loss that affects both ears and progresses over time, either rapidly over several months or slowly over years. Presbycusis is an example of PBHL that progresses slowly, while autoimmune disorders that attack the inner ear structures are examples of more rapidly progressing PBHL.. ...

People living on the coast often eat seaweed, especially those in East Asia, such as Japan, China, Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam. It is also used in Belize, Peru, the Canadian Maritimes, Scandinavia, Ireland, Wales, Philippines, and Scotland. Tiwi, Albay residents discovered a new pancit or noodles made from seaweed. These have health benefits. Seaweed is rich in calcium and magnesium and seaweed noodles can be cooked into pancit canton, pancit luglug, spaghetti or carbonara.[4] In Asia, Zicai (紫菜) (in China), gim (in Korea) and nori (in Japan) are sheets of dried Porphyra used in soups or to wrap sushi. Chondrus crispus (commonly known as Irish moss or carrageenan moss) is another red alga used in producing various food additives, along with Kappaphycus and various gigartinoid seaweeds. Porphyra is a red alga used in Wales to make laver. Laverbread, made from oats and the laver, is a popular dish there. Affectionately called "Dulce" in northern Belize, seaweeds are mixed with milk, ...
Connexin 30 (Cx30), a member of the large gap junction protein family, plays a role in the homeostasis of the epidermis and inner ear through gap junctional intercellular communication (GJIC). Here, we investigated the underlying mechanisms of four autosomal dominant Cx30 gene mutations linked to hearing loss and/or various skin diseases. First, the T5M mutant linked to non-syndromic hearing loss formed functional gap junction channels and hemichannels, similar to wild type Cx30. The loss-of-function V37E mutant associated with Clouston syndrome or keratitis-ichthyosis-deafness syndrome was retained in the endoplasmic reticulum and significantly induced apoptosis. The G59R mutant linked to Vohwinkel and Bart-Pumphrey syndromes was retained primarily in the Golgi apparatus and exhibited loss of gap junction channel and hemichannel function, but did not cause cell death. Lastly, the A88V mutant related to Clouston syndrome also significantly induced apoptosis, although through an endoplasmic ...

N2 - Objectives: An important clinical application of transient-evoked otoacoustic emissions (TEOAEs) is to evaluate cochlear outer hair cell function for the purpose of detecting sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL). Double-evoked TEOAEs were measured using a chirp stimulus, in which the stimuli had an extended frequency range compared to clinical tests. The present study compared TEOAEs recorded using an unweighted stimulus presented at either ambient pressure or tympanometric peak pressure (TPP) in the ear canal and TEOAEs recorded using a power-weighted stimulus at ambient pressure. The unweighted stimulus had approximately constant incident pressure magnitude ...
The standard of care treatment of sudden hearing loss uses a type of steroid called glucocorticoid. Examples of glucocorticoids are prednisone, methylprednisolone and dexamethasone. Not everybody recovers hearing with glucocorticoid treatment. Fludrocortisone is a different type of steroid called mineralocorticoid. Unlike glucocorticoids, which work by reducing inflammation, mineralocorticoids work by changing salt and fluid balance. In animal studies, fludrocortisone is at least as effective as glucocorticoid in preserving hearing. Fludrocortisone is not approved for the treatment of sudden hearing loss. The purpose of this study is to test whether fludrocortisone can treat sudden hearing loss ...

How Can Hearing Aids Help?. Hearing aid manufacturers have tried to address this problem with a technology called frequency -lowering. Hearing aids with this technology are able to capture high frequency sounds and shift them down into lower frequency regions, as opposed to just making the high frequency sounds louder. This means that high frequency sounds of speech can be heard at lower frequencies where hearing is typically better.. Many people appreciate frequency-lowering processing from the start, but some listeners go through an adjustment period. If you have not heard the /s/ sound in years, it can be hard to get used to hearing it again, especially when it is shifted to a lower frequency. Sometimes people report that frequency lowering initially makes talkers sound like they are lisping. After a few weeks of listening and adjusting to frequency-lowering, most people say that the lisp is gone and just the /s/ ...

Indigenous children have the highest reported rates of otitis media (OM), commonly known as middle ear infection, and burst eardrums in the world. Nine out of 10 young Indigenous children who live in remote communities have some form of ear disease, and currently one in six has burst eardrum(s). These statistics are shocking, yet they are the reality of what is happening in Australia today. Long-term middle ear damage causes hearing loss, which impacts on the development of speech and language, and is linked to educational disadvantage and behavioural problems.It is estimated that three out of five Indigenous children start school with a hearing impediment as a result of endemic ear disease. Australian Aboriginal children have the highest rates of ear disease in the world, at almost three times the rate of second place getter, Nigeria. Menzies work in otitis media (ear disease) is a longstanding organisational priority. We are trialing a range of new approaches, with some success, including ...

Purpose To determine whether a single 51-minute exposure to acoustic noise during 3-T multisequence magnetic resonance (MR) neuroimaging could affect the hearing threshold of healthy adults with earplugs and sponge mats as hearing protection. Materials and Methods With earplugs and motion-refraining sponge mats as hearing protection, 26 healthy young adults underwent 3-T MR neuroimaging imaging that included T1-weighted three-dimensional gradient-echo sequence, T2-weighted fast spin-echo sequence, diffusion-tensor imaging, diffusion-kurtosis imaging, T2*-weighted three-dimensional multiecho gradient-echo sequence, and blood oxygen level-dependent imaging. Automated auditory brainstem response (ABR) was used to measure the hearing thresholds within 24 hours before, within 20 minutes after, and 25 days after the MR examination. One-way repeated-measure analysis of variance with Bonferroni adjustment was used to compare automated ABR results among the three tests and partial ...

Through many millennia, various suture materials were used, debated, and remained largely unchanged. Needles were made of bone or metals such as silver, copper, and aluminium bronze wire. Sutures were made of plant materials (flax, hemp and cotton) or animal material (hair, tendons, arteries, muscle strips and nerves, silk, and catgut). The earliest reports of surgical suture date to 3000 BC in ancient Egypt, and the oldest known suture is in a mummy from 1100 BC. A detailed description of a wound suture and the suture materials used in it is by the Indian sage and physician Sushruta, written in 500 BC.[23] The Greek father of medicine, Hippocrates, described suture techniques, as did the later Roman Aulus Cornelius Celsus. The 2nd-century Roman physician Galen described gut sutures.[24] In the 10th century, the catgut suture along with the surgery needle were developed by Abulcasis[25][26]. The catgut suture was similar to that of strings for violins, guitar, and tennis racquet and it ...

An individual with Propionic Acidemia in his third decade of life who is cared for in our institution recently developed hearing loss. The patients mother brought to our attention that on one of the family support group websites for Propionic Acidemia she noticed another affected adult wearing hearing aids. This was a complication I had not previously encountered in this disorder. However, in looking through the literature this has been reported before (Brosch S, et al. HNO. 2008 Jan;56(1):37-42; Lam C, et al Mol Genet Metab. 2011;103:338-40). It is becoming apparent that many of the later complications of Propionic Acidemia are very reminiscent of classical mitochondrial disorders including sudden onset optic atrophy and now hearing loss..

As we go about our day, sound is all around us, from We experience sounds everyday televisions, lawnmowers, household appliances, construction equipment and traffic. Normally, these sounds are at safe levels that dont damage our hearing. But sounds can be harmful when they are too loud or both loud and long-lasting. In addition, noise exposure is cumulative. So the noise at home, at work or at play must be counted in the total exposure during the day. The damage to the nerve endings of the inner ear as a result of all the noise exposure can cause noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL).. NIHL can be immediate or it can take a long time to be noticeable. It can be temporary or permanent, and it can affect one ear or both ears. The good news is noise-induced hearing loss is something you can prevent by using hearing protection devices and avoiding unprotected exposure to dangerous noise levels.. ...
Initial symptoms were reported and informally scored for impingement on a 10-point scale by the patient. The symptoms started with are a minor sore throat (2/10) and moderate aural fullness (6/10) in the right ear upon awakening in the morning. Within two days, a mild to severe, dramatically sloping, ultra-high frequency hearing loss with tinnitus in the right ear was recorded (Fig. 1), which was accompanied by the onset of loud tinnitus 24/7 with sound sensitivity (8/10). The tinnitus was initially measured at 55 dB at 9,000 Hz in the right ear, and at 20 dB at 8,000 Hz in the left ear (Note: The patient only complains of tinnitus and sound sensitivity in the right ear; tests of the left ear are used to compare the two ears).. At two weeks, tinnitus at 8,000 Hz is measured at 60 dB in the right ear and balanced to 55 dB in the left. The ULL measurements between 250 Hz and 16,000 Hz confirmed the presence of hyperacusis. Evidence of asymmetry showed the right ear is more ...
In recent years, there has been a great deal of interest in rare autosomal recessive disorders. This project entitled The Genes Involved in Hearing and Endocrine Disorders focuses on a group of autosomal recessive phenotypes which include symptoms such as sensorineural hearing loss, ovarian dysgenesis, hypogonadotropic hypogonadism, short stature and developmental delay. The aim of the project is to give insight into the molecular pathology of two disorders; Perrault syndrome (PS) and an unclassified Hypogonadotropic Hypogonadism (HH) disorder, through the identification of causative genes. Perrault syndrome is defined as the association of sensorineural hearing loss and primary ovarian failure/ovarian dysgenesis. The phenotypic spectrum of PS is broad with the most common additional features being neurological, including ataxia. The HH disorder presented in this thesis is novel, where affected family members present with a complex combination of features including hearing loss, hypogonadism, ...
