In the face of sudden disasters and hearing loss in an earthquake, how should we recover and take care of it?

Since most of the auditory organs are buried in the head, hearing damage is often combined with head trauma in the disability caused by earthquakes.The early stages of this type of injury are often masked by other symptoms of traumatic brain injury and are not easy to detect.After the dangerous period of brain injury, the corresponding symptoms, such as tinnitus,Hearing loss, Dizziness, some patients with temporal bone fractures will have complete or incomplete facial muscle paralysis.

According to the different parts of the injury, the type of hearing loss and the impact on life are also different.Damage to the outer ear generally does not cause hearing loss.

Middle ear damage is mainly caused by rupture of the tympanic membrane and interruption of the ossicular chain. The hearing loss will not exceed 60 decibels. Loud speaking can be heard, and can be heard clearly and understood.When nursing, pay attention to placing a sterile cotton ball at the mouth of the ear canal to prevent dust and shampoo and face water from entering the ear. As long as there is no infection, most of the tympanic membrane perforation can heal automatically.

The interruption of the ossicular chain can be repaired by surgery in the future, and the hearing will be restored without leaving permanent hearing damage.
