    Hearing Loss Singapore – Everything You Need To Know About Causes, Types, & Treatment

    Hearing Loss: An Ultimate Guide.

    Hearing loss is when a person loses their ability to hear sounds normally in the same way as others might be able to. This can happen in either one or both ears. Generally, a person is considered to be hearing impaired when they have trouble hearing sounds of 20 decibels or louder, which is around the volume of rustling leaves or a whisper from a distance.

    Causes Of Hearing Loss

    Severity Of Hearing loss
    Hearing loss range


    Mild hearing loss: 26 to 40 dB
    Difficulty hearing rustling leaves, whispers, humming of a refrigerator

     

    Moderate hearing loss: 41 to 55 dB
    Difficulty hearing light rainfall

     

    Moderately severe hearing loss: 56 to 70 dB
    Difficulty hearing normal conversations, toilet flushing, vacuum cleaner

     

    Severe hearing loss: 71 to 90 dB
    Difficulty hearing heavy traffic, hair dryer

     

    Profound hearing loss: Over 90 dB
    Difficulty or complete inability in hearing extremely loud noises like ambulance sirens, helicopters, drills.

     

    Hearing Loss Types
    Hearing loss is classified into 3 types by medical professionals:

     

    1. Sensorineural Hearing Loss

    Sensorineural hearing loss is the most common type of permanent hearing loss. This happens when the inner part of the ear or auditory nerves experience damage, which affects the transmission of sounds from the ears to the brain. As a result, soft sounds such as normal conversations become difficult to hear, with loud noises also becoming muffled, depending on the degree of hearing impairment.

     

    2. Conductive Hearing Loss

    Conductive hearing loss happens when there are obstructions in the middle and/or outer ear, which partially blocks how sound waves travel through to the brain. This could be due to ear wax, fluid due to infection or allergy, growths, or other external factors. Fortunately, conductive hearing loss is usually temporary and depending on its cause, can often be treated with simple medical treatment, surgery, or a hearing aid.

     

    3. Mixed Hearing Loss

    As its name suggests, mixed hearing loss is a combination of both sensorineural and conductive hearing loss, where there’s damage to both the inner and middle or outer parts of the ears.

    Hearing Aid: How To Choose The Right One

    Hearing Loss & Hearing Aid

    Hearing impairment commonly occurs due to aging or exposure to loud noises, whereby nerve cells in the cochlea fail to send sound signals to the brain. Other than this, there are diseases, such as Meningitis, Mumps, and Chickenpox that result in hearing loss.

    Undoubtedly, hearing loss can make life detrimental. People suffering from hearing loss struggles with communication and listening, resulting in a lack of participation in daily activities. To such people, the invention of the hearing aids has emerged as a boon. Hearing aid is a small electronic device that is inserted in the ear canal or placed behind the ear of the patient to amplify sound, making the incoming sound louder. There are many benefits of hearing aids, from improving the quality of life of the patients; reducing loneliness, to eliminating anxiety and depression.

    How Hearing Aids Work?

    The fundamental role of hearing aids is to make the sound from the environment louder in the patient’s ear. It encompasses a battery to keep it working, an amplifier to intensify the sound signals, and sound chips to modify the sound based on your hearing impairment. The amplified sound signals are transformed back into sound waves to be delivered to ears with the help of the receiver or speaker.

    Which Hearing Aid Is Best For My Ailment?

    Depending on the degree of hearing loss that ranges from Slight, Mild, Moderate, Moderately Severe, Severe, to Profound, hearing aids are prescribed to the patients based on individual’s hearing level. Besides this, there are several other factors like age, hearing aid styles, and cost upon which hearing aids are classified. Here we’ve put together different types of hearing aids varying in terms of their design styles. These Hearing Aids definitely work as a problem-solver for patients with hearing loss.

    Completely-In-The-Canal Hearing Aids
    Invisible-In-The-Canal Hearing Aids

    1. Completely In Canal (CIC) / Invisible In Canal (IIC) Hearing Aid

    The “Completely In The Canal Hearing Aid” is designed such that it can be inserted inside the ear canal. It is the smallest type of hearing aids that leaves out the least visibility and is suitable for patients with mild to moderate degrees of hearing loss.

    Drawbacks of CIC/IIC Hearing Aid:

    In-The-Canal Hearing Aids

    2. In The Canal (ITC) Hearing Aid

    Unlike CIC hearing aids that are designed to completely fit in the ear canal, the “In The Canal Hearing Aid” is designed in a way to partly fit in the ear canal. ITC hearing aids are slightly visible from outside and suits the patients with mild to severe degrees of hearing loss.

    Drawbacks of ITC Hearing Aid:

    Behind-The-Ear Hearing Aids

    3. Behind the Ear (BTE) Hearing Aid

    A “Behind The Ear Hearing Aid” consists of a custom earpiece that’s attached to the hearing aid with the help of a tube. While the hearing aid rests behind the ear, the earpiece in the hearing aid fits inside the ear canal. It is suitable for people of all ages and with all sorts of hearing loss. It supports many features and incorporates a strong battery that gives it a longer life. Traditionally it has been the largest type of hearing aids, though some newer mini designs are streamlined and barely visible. It has directional microphones and is capable of more amplification than other styles. Some BTE hearing aids also comes with rechargeable models with bluetooth features.

    Receiver-In-Canal Hearing Aids

    4. Receiver In Canal (RIC) / Receiver In Ear (RIE) Hearing Aid

    The receiver-in-canal (RIC) and receiver-in-the-ear (RIE) hearing aid styles are similar to a behind-the-ear hearing aids with the speaker or receiver that sits in the ear canal. A tiny wire, rather than tubing, connects the piece behind the ear to the speaker or receiver. A receiver-in-canal hearing aids:

    Hearing Assessment

    Step into our Audiometric (Sound Proof) Room and get your hearing assessment performed by a licensed Audiologist, using equipment called an audiometer.

    Hearing Aid Recommendation

    To ensure you get the best hearing aids for your needs, we'll ask you a few questions about your lifestyle and budget.
