hearing for better communication!
Our ear is formed by three parts: outer ear, middle ear and inner ear. Most of the hearing illness in outer and middle ear can be cured gradually by medication or surgery. Yet, hearing illness caused by aging, inner damage of the ear or prolonged exposure to noise in life will constitute a severe long-term damage of the inner ear.
Types of hearing loss:
Conductive: Sound is not conducted efficiently through the outer ear canal to the eardrum and the tiny bones of the middle ear
Sensorineural: Damage to the inner ear, or to the nerve pathways from inner ear to the brain
conductive hearing loss occurs in combination with a sensorineural hearing loss
