Huang, 80, likes to walk on the street to buy newspapers on his own, but he often comes back for more than an hour; he often sits down in front of the TV to doze off; he doesn’t want to take part in group activities for the elderly; he doesn’t want to talk with others; he doesn’t even have much enthusiasm for eating, because his family has to shout loudly “eat” several times, and then Huang starts to sit at the dinner table. As Huang became more and more lonely, his family had to take him to the hospital. Professor Wang, the doctor in charge and the otolaryngology center of the Armed Police Hospital, said that many old people will encounter such things: when they call for a meal, they can hear it clearly in the next building, but the old people are still sitting in the original place, motionless; they love interrupting, but they are talking about the words that the head of the ox is not right for the mouth of the horse, which is puzzling These are the manifestations of senile deafness, and patients need to be vigilant.

Chain reaction caused by hearing loss

According to Professor Wang, physiologically speaking, hearing will gradually decline with the increase of age. Generally speaking, after 60 years old, there will be different degrees of deafness, but there are also some people who are deaf at the age of 40 or 50. The problem is that some old people feel abandoned by their families after hearing loss, which leads to depression. At this time, if ignored, it will cause psychological trauma to the elderly. Experts suggest that once hearing loss is found, family members should encourage and accompany the elderly to the hospital in time. After finding out the cause, we should take active treatment.

In fact, with the decrease of hearing, the old people’s ability of receiving external information is also weakened. In addition, it can also lead to language disorders in the elderly. Because the auditory and auditory language center are in the temporal lobe, and the auditory language center needs sound auditory system transmission. When hearing loss occurs, the auditory transmission is reduced, and the information received by the auditory language center is correspondingly reduced, which is often called “deaf mute”. The long-term “incongruity” between hearing and auditory language center may lead to the functional failure of a specific area of brain, resulting in Alzheimer’s disease. Taking positive measures can avoid or delay the occurrence and development of senile deafness.

Hearing aids can protect the remaining hearing

More than half of the family members of the elderly with deafness once thought that the old people were old and the back of their ears was normal, so they didn’t need to care. This wrong view would not only cause serious hearing impairment to the old people, but also cause physical and mental damage to the old people. Wearing hearing aids can help to improve the hearing status of the elderly. “Wang Xijun pointed out that early treatment and intervention for the elderly patients with deafness can save the residual hearing and avoid further hearing damage, because retaining the residual hearing is very important to improve the quality of life of the elderly. After the early symptoms, we should consider whether there is hearing impairment, and take audiometry as early as possible, so as to intervene and treat in time.
