What are Hearing Aids?

Hearing aids are a small, electrical device used to improve hearing loss in individuals with either Conductive Hearing Loss or Sensorineural Hearing Loss.   Over the last 20 years, hearing aid technology has become very advanced, with different types of hearing aids able to treat different forms of hearing loss.  Nonetheless, the founding principal remains the same: the purpose of a hearing aid is to amplify sound so the individual can hear more clearly.   

There are three different types of hearing loss.  Conductive Hearing Loss occurs when there is damage to the outer ear, eardrum, or middle ear.  Sensorineural Hearing Loss occurs when there is damage to the inner ear or the nerve from the ear to the brain.  Mixed Hearing Loss occurs when there is a combination of conductive hearing loss and sensorineural hearing loss.  Audiologists are healthcare professionals who specialize in the field of hearing loss.  If you suffer from hearing loss, it is important to contact an audiologist right away, as they will be able to evaluate and assess the type, level, and available treatment options.
