There are 27.8 million hearing disabled people in China. Hearing aids are an important means to provide hearing compensation and rehabilitation for hearing disabled people. In order to further popularize the prevention and rehabilitation knowledge of hearing impairment, enhance the awareness of hearing disabled people to use hearing aids and test hearing aids, and promote the sustainable and healthy development of hearing disability prevention and rehabilitation in China, let’s talk about “correct use of hearing aids.” ”

Hearing aid is “matching” not “buying”

After the age of 40, with the continuous growth of age, hearing will gradually decline. Many people with hearing loss always want to solve their hearing problems through drug therapy or surgery, but in fact, only conductive deafness can improve their hearing through surgery or drug therapy. There is no effective treatment for sensorineural deafness, so hearing aids should be considered. Some old people are going to buy hearing aids. Here we tell you: hearing aids are “matched” rather than “bought”. Hearing aids are similar to amplifiers, mainly composed of microphone, amplifier, earphone or bone guide and power supply. It can turn the sound into a weak electrical signal, which is amplified by an amplifier and then transmitted to the earphone and the human ear. The selection of hearing aids should be considered carefully. Generally speaking, there is no limit to the age of using hearing aids, but it is particularly important for children and the elderly. In terms of the degree of hearing loss, we should carefully choose. If the hearing loss is less than 35 decibels, it is unnecessary to wear it. If the hearing loss is more than 90 decibels, no matter how high power the hearing aid is, it will not help, and it will not play the role of hearing aid. Fitting hearing aids is a scientific and precise process. Because everyone’s hearing condition is different, the requirements of hearing compensation for hearing aids are different. If we choose an unsuitable hearing aid without the examination and test of a professional audiologist, if the sound produced by the hearing aid exceeds the “most uncomfortable listening threshold” that the hearing loss can bear, it may damage the residual hearing of the hearing loss, further aggravate the degree of hearing loss, and even may damage the auditory nerve.

Do not refuse hearing aids for hearing impaired patients

In the past, restricted by economic conditions, many people couldn’t afford hearing aids. In addition, many people didn’t know enough about the deafness of the elderly. They thought that the deafness of the elderly was normal and an inevitable phenomenon of aging without treatment, which was wrong. Some old people are afraid that they will not wear hearing aids because they know they are deaf. In fact, with the development of science and technology, various types of hearing aids came into being, the elderly do not want to show the old style optional ear style.

Generally, hearing aids should be worn on the side with poor hearing, so that the other ear can still listen to the voice of nature, so that the hearing of both ears can be as harmonious as possible. If one ear is moderately deaf and the other ear is severely deaf, it should be worn on the side with better hearing, so as to obtain the best listening effect. There is an adaptation period for the elderly to wear hearing aids, about three or five months. During the adaptation period, the volume of the hearing aid should be turned down as much as possible. At the beginning, the wearing time should not be too long, just a few minutes at a time, and then gradually longer. After wearing the hearing aid, you should listen to the radio, watch TV or communicate with others in a quiet environment, and try to avoid noisy environment. Due to the noise in the background environment, the resolution of the hearing aid will decline, resulting in unclear hearing.

Except the volume switch can be adjusted by itself, other knobs need to be adjusted by professionals. When the hearing aid is not in use, the battery compartment should be opened. First, it can save power. Second, it can avoid battery oxidation and damage to the hearing aid.
