The elderly should pay attention to wearing hearing aids
Wearing hearing aids is an important means to improve the hearing of deaf elderly people.However, hearing aids cannot be purchased and used at will, and must be strictly fitted before they can be worn.In the process of fitting hearing aids, the elderly should usually pay attention to the following points:
1 For newly-occurring presbycusis, don’t rush to wear it Hearing aid , After a period of clinical treatment, if there is still no improvement, then consider wearing Hearing aid .Wearing hearing aids too early may aggravate deafness due to strong sound stimulation.
2 Before fitting a hearing aid, a professional doctor must conduct a comprehensive examination, and choose a suitable hearing aid according to the degree of hearing loss.Don’t buy and wear it by yourself, so as not to damage the remaining hearing.
3 Presbycusis, the degree of deafness in both ears is often inconsistent.Under normal circumstances, the hearing aid should be worn on the side with poor hearing so that the other ear can still hear the sounds of nature, so that the hearing of both ears is as harmonious and consistent as possible.If one ear is moderately deaf and the other ear has reached severe deafness, it should be worn on the side with better hearing so that the best listening effect can be obtained.For moderate to severe deafness with the same degree of deafness in both ears, it is advisable to wear both ears alternately to reduce fatigue.


4 There is an adaptation period for the elderly to wear hearing aids, which is about three to five months.During the adaptation period, the volume of the hearing aid should be turned down as much as possible. At the beginning, the wearing time should not be too long, just a few minutes each time, and then gradually increase.

In this case, it is necessary to insert the hearing aid correctly. problem.It is obviously improper to choose a hearing aid that is too tight. At present, the best solution is to use lubricating oil and insert it carefully.For such patients, let them apply a small amount of baby moisturizer in the ear canal every night. It is recommended not to wash and clean the ear canal. Most of these patients have dry skin. Long-term use of baby moisturizer can help the ears. The skin is lubricated, which makes it easier to carry the hearing aid.If you need to advise patients to use moisturizer for a long time (more than 2 weeks), tell them to use it only at night before going to bed, so that the moisturizer can be fully absorbed and the ear canal skin will have sufficient time to breathe.If it is used too much and it is not breathable, the skin of the ear canal is prone to rash.

Remind the hearing-impaired friends to be careful not to rush for success before wearing hearing aids.It takes a process to adapt to hearing aids, and rushing will only get the opposite. Letting one’s body and mind accept the heart aid is a gradual process.
