Wearing hearing aids and glasses are actually the same, there is no difference

I need to wear glasses if my eyesight is reduced, we can basically accept it, but my hearing loss is told by the doctor that I need to wear glasses Hearing aid Many friends will be surprised and unacceptable.According to previous data, the number of people with hearing loss in my country is as high as 1.5 million. However, due to traditional concepts and insufficient publicity on hearing protection, the penetration rate of hearing aids in my country is only 3%, while the use rate of hearing aids in Western developed countries is as high as 35 %.Reasonable wearing of hearing aids can help the hearing impaired achieve good verbal communication and improve the quality of life.So, if the doctor recommends you to wear Hearing aid , You don’t have to be afraid at all, it is just like glasses, it is your must-have good helper.

How do you feel different when a child wearing glasses and a child wearing a hearing aid stand in front of you? “It’s normal to wear glasses for myopia; if you wear hearing aids, your child is abnormal and disabled. This concept must be changed! Whether it is glasses or hearing aids, they are just a means to improve the quality of life of children.” Chief of Otorhinolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery, Beijing Children’s Hospital Expert Professor Zheng Jun emphasized.
There are many people who misunderstand hearing impairment.In the outpatient process, doctors often encounter such cases: Parents have discovered that their children’s hearing loss has been for some time, but because the parents themselves have ideological burdens, they are afraid that their children will be ridiculed and discriminated against, so they instinctively resist taking their children for medical treatment.So holding on to the fluke of “the nobleman speaks late”, wait and wait again.As everyone knows, he has missed the best time for treatment and surgery for his child, and regretted it for life.When it is confirmed that the child has hearing impairment, the parents can cooperate with various treatment methods such as drugs, acupuncture, and surgery, but they cannot accept the child wearing hearing aids, implanting cochlear implants, and cannot accept the cochlear external machine being exposed…

There are too many examples of this, and they often make doctors sigh.

For many people with poor hearing, rejecting hearing aids can save face, but it will gradually alienate themselves from society and create a deeper and deeper gap with their relatives and friends.Many hearing impaired patients are very clear, because they can’t hear the conversations of people around them, they not only become silent, but also feel depressed and melancholy every day.For children, they are in the golden age of language learning, and the lack of normal hearing will seriously delay the healthy growth of the child’s body and mind. “If your child is diagnosed with permanentHearing loss, If it is recommended to choose a hearing aid, please adjust your mentality as soon as possible for your child, face it firmly, and go to a professional hearing aid fitting center as soon as possible. “Therefore, we sincerely hope that the whole society can face up to hearing aids and face the lack of hearing. Parents are still like this, let alone others? It can be said that misconceptions directly lead to a considerable number of children unable to receive effective treatment in time. However,0-5 years old is a critical period for children’s language development.Hearing loss at this time will not only cause speech development delay or deafness, but also affect children’s intellectual development, causing emotional, psychological, and social communication problems.Therefore, early detection, early diagnosis, and early intervention are absolutely significant for the recovery of hearing-impaired children!How to achieve “early detection”?Bear the brunt of hearing screening.According to Liu Haihong, director of the Hearing Clinic Center of Children’s Hospital, at present, two-stage newborn hearing screening is relatively common: the initial screening is carried out from 48 hours after birth to before discharge; if the initial screening fails, it will be re-screened at 42 days; if there are still problems with the re-screening A systematic audiology diagnosis was performed at three months; early hearing intervention was entered after the diagnosis.In addition to neonatal hearing screening, Beijing has also launched a neonatal deafness genetic screening program. If the results are abnormal, you should go to the hospital for consultation and diagnosis in time.Some children carry ototoxic drugs susceptibility genes, once they are checked out, such drugs should be used with caution for life.

In addition, parents should be more careful with older children in their lives and pay attention to some unusual behaviors, such as:

1. Little or no reaction to the surrounding sounds when playing, always treat the parents’ words as “wind to ears”, appear “all normal” in one-to-one communication, but will look at you very intently;

2. Suddenly adjust the sound to a louder when watching TV;

3. When there is an abnormal noise, everyone responds, but the child does not move;

4. Used to use only one ear when answering the phone;

5. Language development is slow and slurred.After entering the learning stage, it is inattentive, inattentive, dull and dull;

6. Lively and bold at home, but very timid in an unfamiliar environment, shy of communicating with others.

She emphasized that when a child is suspected of hearing abnormalities, he must go to a professional medical institution for examination, diagnosis, and intervention as soon as possible.
