About Hearing Loss
Hearing loss is a common problem that has a variety of factors including age, noise, disease and genetics. Patients that suffer from it may have difficulty having to converse with friends and family. Patients may also have difficulty understanding the advice of their healthcare provider, respond to warnings and hear alarms or doorbells. About one in three people between the ages of 65 and 74 suffer from loss of hearing and nearly half of people older than 65 have difficulty hearing but many may not want to admit that they have issue hearing. If the condition is left untreated or ignored chances are it can get worse. Studies show that older patients have a higher risk of developing dementia than those with normal hearing. Certain cognitive abilities such as memory and concentration decline at a faster rate in patients suffering from hearing loss compared to those that do not have it.
Etiology of Hearing Loss
The most common cause of hearing problems seen in patients is loud noise. Noise coming from different sources like lawn mowers, snow blowers and loud music can damage the inner ear creating permanent hearing loss. Loud noise is a major contributor to tinnitus in patients. The good news is you can prevent most noise-related hearing problems such as turning down the sound on your stereo, television or headphones, moving off from loud sources or simply using earplugs for protection.
Fluid buildup or the accumulation of earwax can deter sounds carried from the eardrum to the inner ear. If it is simply just from wax, the doctor can provide mild treatments to soften it. Punctured eardrums result to loss of hearing. It may also be damaged by pressure, infection or placing objects inside the ear like cotton-tipped swabs. Health problems common in older patients like high blood pressure and diabetes contribute to hearing loss. Moreover, viruses, bacteria, heart problems, stroke, brain injury or a tumor can also affect hearing. It can also be due to certain drugs known to be harmful to the ears. Heredity or family history also plays a role in the development of the condition. There are hearing loss conditions that may be present at birth while others show up later when the patient gets older. For instance, Otosclerosis is a condition that is characterized by abnormal bone growth and prevents structures within the ear to function normally.
Hearing loss comes in many forms and may range from a mild loss, where the patient misses certain high-pitched sounds such as the voices of kids and women to complete hearing loss. There are three general categories and these are:
- Sensorineural hearing loss – This happens when there is damage to the inner ear or the auditory nerve. This kind of condition is usually permanent in nature.
- Conductive hearing loss – This happens when sound waves are unable to reach the inner ear and may be due to earwax buildup, fluid, or a punctured eardrum.
- Mixed – This is a combination of both Sensorineural and conductive hearing loss.
Sudden Hearing Loss
Sudden deafness is a rapid loss of hearing and may happen to a patient once or over a period of up to three days. This is considered a medical emergency and requires immediate intervention.
Presbycusis is hearing loss that gradually occurs because of age. It has a tendency to run in families and may happen due to changes in the inner ear and auditory nerve. The condition can make it difficult for patients to hear loud sounds or to hear what others are saying. This age-related loss affects both ears equally. The loss is not sudden but gradual in nature, so patients that encounters it may not immediately realize that they have lost some of their ability to hear sounds.
This is usually the first sign of hearing loss in older adults. It is characterized as ringing of the ears but may also sound like a roaring, clicking, buzzing or hissing sound that comes and goes. It may be heard in one or both ears and may be loud or soft. Tinnitus can accompany any kind of hearing loss and may be a sign of other health issues like high blood pressure, allergies or a side effect of certain drugs. Keep in mind that tinnitus is a symptom and not a representative of a disease. Something as simple as earwax buildup blocking the ear canal may result to tinnitus.
