Will wearing a hearing aid in the end?

After many people have hearing loss, they don’t wear hearing aids in time. They are worried about wearing them, among other reasons.Hearing aid The more you wear, the more you wear. I am afraid that my hearing will become more and more serious.

The answer is of course no. Because the patient needs to perform a series of hearing tests and assessments before fitting the hearing aid. Includes tests for pure tone audiometry and speech testing, comfort thresholds and discomfort thresholds. If the patient meets the hearing aid fitting criteria, the patient’s own audiogram is selected. Also, for patients who are initially fitted, the fitter will retain the amplification of the sound and will not adjust to the maximum volume. After it has been adapted for a period of time, the volume is further increased until the patient is satisfied. Secondly, the maximum sound output of the hearing aid does not exceed the patient’s discomfort threshold, which means that it will not make you uncomfortable and ensure that the hearing will not drop further.

Will the hearing aids “wear more and more”?

Nowadays, digital hearing aids have gradually replaced the use of analog hearing aids. One of the biggest advantages of digital hearing aids is the loud compression function. In daily wear, there are occasional strong sounds (such as closing the door, car horns, etc.), and the hearing aid will compress such a loud sound in a few thousandths of a second, ensuring that no excessive sound is transmitted. Inside the ear. The fitter can even reduce the strong sound instantly by setting, which is the instantaneous noise reduction function. This further ensures that the hearing aid wearer does not cause secondary damage to the hearing due to loud sounds.

When hearing a hearing aid at the center, patients often reflect “noise” in the hearing aid, fearing that it will affect hearing. In fact, this is not what the patient thinks is “noise”, but because of the patient’s hearing loss, the original objective whisper is inaudible, and after wearing the hearing aid, these whispers are amplified, and the patient mistakenly thinks it is noise. The “noise floor” and distortion components of the hearing aid itself are far better than the country./International standards, such as their noise floor is much lower than the noise of our daily quiet office, and almost no damage to existing residual hearing.

Will the hearing aids “wear more and more”?

Therefore, for patients with hearing loss, wearing a hearing aid does not affect hearing. Generally, as you get older, The physiological functions of the human body gradually decline, the inner ear hair cells shrink and die, and the hearing function declines. Also, other underlying diseases (such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, etc.) may also cause hearing loss.

Therefore, the progressive decline in hearing of elderly patients is almost irrelevant to the wearing of hearing aids. Without the use of hearing aids, hearing function and brain dysfunction are certain.

Therefore, after hearing loss, you should go to the hospital or hearing aid fitting center in time to do some appropriate checks, and don’t delay hearing. Care for life and care for yourself!
