Defining Popular Hearing Aid Audiology Terms

Those who experience problems with or a loss of their hearing might want to consult an audiology expert and possibly have a hearing aid installed. Ranging from the primitive tools created prior to the development of sophisticated technology, to modern-day, digitally enhanced techniques, audiology can thus help patients restore their hearing and, moreover, their quality of life. The following terms comprise varied aspects of audiology.

  • Cochlear implant - A surgically implanted device, used for particularly severe cases of sound-related disability. The part of the ear for which this hearing aid is named is an essential component of the ear's inner section.
  • BTE - This acronym means "behind the ear." It designates a hearing aid which amplifies the wearer's ability to hear with a component nestled, as the name indicates, behind the ear.
  • ITE - Standing for "In the ear," this acronym refers to a hearing aid fitted into the concha, the exterior "bowl" of the ear. Designed for less serious problems with hearing losses, these aids can cause issues for their wearers with the occurrence of feedback.
  • Open-fit - Also called "over the ear," these tools act toward obstructing the passageways in the ear as little as possible. This design tamps down the so-called "occlusion" echoing effect inside the ear.
  • ITC/CIC - Another category of hearing aids identified by acronyms, these two stand for "In the/completely in the canal." Among other functions, these hearing aids are smaller than some of the other options discussed above, and are not as easily seen.

    Hearing aids and audiology are very important branches of science and medicine. Audiology is actually the branch of medicine that deals with the sense of hearing. There are countless doctors working in this field all over the world. Since hearing loss is common over time, and many people suffer with hearing loss early in life due to accidents or genetics, unique devices are created to assist them. For instance, a hearing aid is a digital accessory that can be placed in the ear to help the user hear more clearly. Often audiology professionals and doctors perform general health and hearing tests on their patients in order to find out why hearing loss occurred. The cochlear is the spiral cavity of the inner ear canal, and it contains the organ that responds to sound vibrations, and allows you to hear things. If this organ cannot receive the sound effectively, an amplifier of sorts is needed. This small digital device or accessory is anchored to the ear, and worn throughout the day. Not only is it wireless, but it is also quite small, and aids the user with receiving sounds, and hearing everything much more easily. These hearing aids are acquired by audiology doctors or hearing clinics from wholesale dealers, then prescribed to patients. Use the internet to learn more about hearing aids, audiology doctors, hearing loss, and family insurance coverage that handles this aspect of health care. There is a great deal of free information provided online via official audiology websites.
