The skills of the elderly to choose hearing aids

As the age increases, many elderly people will experience hearing loss. At this time, some elderly people will choose to wear hearing aids to correct their hearing. Some elderly people think that hearing aids will experience hearing loss after wearing them for a long time. Experts say that if the patient chooses a suitable hearing aid, the above situation will not occur. The hearing aid is also the same as the glasses. It is necessary to choose a hearing aid that matches the patient’s own deafness.

Correct selection of hearing aids, in addition to protecting residual hearing, is also conducive to suppressing tinnitus. Among the people who have scientifically equipped hearing aids, about 50% of people have reduced tinnitus symptoms, and 20% of them even think that tinnitus completely disappears. The scientific selection of hearing aids should include hearing tests, hearing aid selection, computer debugging of hearing aids, etc., all of which must be performed by professional fitters and at professional fitting points.

So how do we choose the right hearing aid according to our own situation? The elderly can choose the hearing aid according to the following three points.

Degree and type of hearing loss

Each type of hearing aid has its own adaptation scale. For example, the hearing loss of the behind-the-ear hearing aid is relatively large, and it is necessary for heavy, deep squat or high frequency steep drop hearing loss. Some patients with conductive sputum have suffered from repeated surgery, and the tympanic layout is damaged. Think of bone-guided hearing aids.

Finger sensitivity, vision

It should be noted that in addition to hearing loss, the elderly have poor eyesight and insensitive finger movements. It is difficult to play with very delicate hearing aids and batteries with small equipment. The volume of the ear-rear type is slightly simpler than that of the ear, but if the hearing aid is equipped with a remote control, there is no difference between the two. From the point of view of convenience, the in-ear hearing aid is slightly more convenient than the behind-the-ear type. The ear cavity, ear canal eardrum (or in-the-ear hearing aid) is much simpler than the full ear cavity.

Ear canal size

The behind-the-ear hearing aid can be equipped with audio input, FM interface and other equipment, and promises to complete the directional microphone characteristics. The internal hearing aid does not simply perform these functions. When wearing a hearing aid, pay attention to the ear’s comfort, echo and noise. First of all, wearing a hearing aid should be comfortable and painless. If you feel pain, you should contact your fitter and don’t take the time to get used to it. Secondly, echoes, oscillations or empty sounds should not be presented. Once such a condition is presented, the patient’s hearing aids need to be adjusted. The third is to prevent noise from appearing. The noise can be very large, but it does not cause discomfort. If the patient feels that the noise is too loud to reach the satisfied volume, it is necessary to immediately go to the hearing aid franchise to contact the de novo test.

Core Tip: Each type of hearing aid has its own adaptation scale. For example, the hearing loss of the behind-the-ear hearing aid is relatively large, and it is necessary for heavy, deep squat or high frequency steep drop hearing loss. Some patients with conductive sputum have suffered from repeated surgery, and the tympanic layout is damaged. Think of bone-guided hearing aids.
