There are many patients who do not pay attention to the ear, so they are unconsciously unconscious of the ear canal, inadvertently entering the water, etc., which can cause inflammation of the middle ear. We are commonly known as otitis media. Then the hearing loss caused by otitis media is mostly conductive deafness. Due to perforation of the periosteum and suppuration, the bone chain is severely eroded to the end of mixed deafness. The cause of mixed deafness occurs in the middle and inner ear. This type of hearing loss is called sensorineural deafness. So can patients with otitis media wear an in-the-ear hearing aid?
I believe that many patients do not know much about this, then I will tell you about the classification of otitis media. All patients with otitis media have simple acute or chronic otitis media, as well as secretory otitis media or acute and chronic suppurative otitis media and cholesteatoma otitis media, especially suppurative otitis media. Because of frequent pus, it is necessary to go to a regular hospital for treatment. Treatment with drugs or surgery. If the above treatment is ineffective, the hearing is still lost. However, if the inflammation has been controlled or cured and the pus is no longer pus, then a suitable hearing aid can be selected to improve the hearing. Thereby improving their own quality of life.
Different hearing aids should be selected according to the above different situations:
If the tympanic membrane perforation is not cured, it is not suitable for the selection of deep ear canal custom machine. Because when the in-ear hearing aid is not worn, the outer ear is open, occasionally pus or water seeps out from the external auditory canal, but if the middle ear is inflamed again after blocking the ear canal, if there is secretion overflow, it can lead to two Situation:
First, due to the wearing of the in-ear hearing aid, the secretions may fall into the ear and cannot flow out, which again causes inflammation of the middle ear and aggravates the condition.
Second, the secretion overflows into the ear canal hearing aid, which easily damages the hearing aid, so it is worth the loss.
Therefore, if there is residual otitis media and the tympanic membrane is not healed, the patient should communicate with others to get good hearing. It is best to choose a back-type hearing aid to improve both hearing and avoid the above two problems.
Then, in patients with otitis media who have healed the tympanic membrane, there is no problem in choosing an in-ear hearing aid. And the effect will be very good, because the conductive deafness only shows mild to moderate hearing loss, the frequency resolution is normal, and the cochlear function is also good, any type of hearing aid works well.
The most important thing is to go to a professional hearing aid fitting institution (see the reason why the hearing aid is chosen to choose a large institution). Another reason is to choose the right hearing aid, first of all to have accurate pure tone audiometry and professional fitter is a prerequisite for the selection of appropriate hearing aids.
