Why Binaural Hearing Aids are important

Why there is a need to wear 2 Hearing Aids? If you discover that you are suffering from a Hearing Loss, then have to visit an Audiologist to check your Hearing Loss Condition. It is always recommended to wear 2 Hearing Aids as it will improve the Hearing loss condition and enables better Hearing. Being an Audiologist we identified a Hearing Loss condition case about 2 years back. Women with an age group of 54 years visited our Hearing Solutions clinic. Initially, she was discovered with mild Hearing loss. She was recommended for wearing 2 Hearing Aids but she insisted to go with only one Hearing aids, for the one she was facing the problem with. After 2 years she revisited the Hearing Clinic and noticed that her Hearing condition was improved to one Ear while Hearing condition decreased to another ear. The decrease in the hearing condition is because of using a monaural hearing aid rather than a binaural hearing aid. 

At is this point, she was strongly recommended to wear Binaural Hearing Aid. Finally, she was replaced with 2 Hearing aids. She was elated and said”  “I can get by with one but Oh God! having two is so much better for my hearing.”  with the difference in hearing and regretted to skip 2 Hearing Aids. 

All About Hearing Aid Batteries

All About Hearing Aid Batteries

Hearing Aid Batteries are Zinc-air, button-shaped disposable batteries. They are air-activated and factory-sealed which remain inactive until removed. Once the sticker on the battery is removed the oxygen will interact with the zinc and it will turn on. As long as the Battery is in contact with the oxygen, it will be in the active state until the power is drained. 

Hearing Aid batteries are highly efficient in nature. They can be stored for a longer period of time when not in use. Traditionally hearing aid batteries were produced using traces of mercury to assist with conductivity and stabilizing the internal components, but mercury is no longer used in hearing aid batteries while Zinc-Air Batteries are more efficient and Cost Friendly.

Loss of Hearing Due to Corona Virus

Loss of Hearing Due to Corona Virus

Ear blockage is one of the most common things that happen to the human body when encountered with microbial infections such as cold or fever. It’s because of the eustachian tubes, the ear becomes obstructed creating fullness and pressure. As a result, we cannot hear properly. This temporary deafness usually continues only until the sickness ceases. However, this doesn’t seem to be the case with the new coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2).

Deeper Research Needed

Some published reports say that of many major long-term complications that are linked to COVID-19, sudden deafness also tops the list. Based on an Israeli study, the patients infected with the coronavirus were prescribed some Hearing Tests such as otoacoustic emissions (OAE) and auditory brainstem response (ABR) to evaluate the auditory functioning. The Hearing Clinics observed difficulties only in the individuals with severe Covid-19 infection. Yet, at this point, there is no clinical evidence to suggest how this virus plays a role in auditory complexities.
