Cochlear Implants - How It Can Help

MBBS, MS - ENT
ENT Specialist, Delhi
Cochlear Implants - How It Can Help

Cochlear implant is a medical device that provides direct electrical stimulation to the hearing nerve in the inner ear. Children and adults with a severe hearing loss may be helped with cochlear implants. A cochlear implant is a prosthetic substitute directly stimulating the cochlea and it does not cure deafness or hearing impairment.

A cochlear implant completely by-passes the normal hearing mechanism and stimulates the auditory nerve directly by means of an internally implanted electrode assembly. The implant consists of an external portion that located behind the ear and an interior portion which is surgically implanted under the skin. An implant has a microphone, a speech processor, a transmitter and an electrode array. The sound from the environment is picked by microphone and transmitter and receiver/stimulator sends them to speech processor to convert them into electric impulses. The speech processor placed with the microphone behind the ear, or it is a small box-like unit worn in a chest pocket. The speech processor digitizes the sound signals and sends them to a transmitter just behind the ear. The electrode array collects the impulses from the stimulator and sends those to different regions of the auditory nerve. The electrodes stimulate the fibers of the auditory nerve, and sound sensations are perceived.

A cochlear implant is very different from a hearing aid. Hearing aids amplify sounds so that they can be detected by damaged ears. Cochlear implants bypass damaged portions of the ear and directly stimulate the auditory nerve. Hearing via a cochlear implant is different from normal hearing and takes time to adjust. However, it enables many people to understand other sounds in the environment, recognize warning signals, , and understand speech in person or over the telephone.
The benefits from a cochlear implant depend on many factors, such as the age of the patient when he or she receives the implant, the hearing loss present pre or post patient developed language skills and finally the motivation of the patient and family support

Once a person is referred for cochlear implant, more testing is done which includes audio logic testing, psychological testing, medical examination, and tests performed by the surgeon. It is done to ensure that the candidate will benefit from a cochlear implant and will have the motivation to participate in the process. Once the decision is made to go ahead, the surgery is done. Sometimes it involves an overnight stay in the clinic, and sometimes it is done on an outpatient basis. Six weeks post-surgery, patient is fitted with the external microphone and speech processor and implant is activated and programmed.

The best candidates are those having severe hearing loss in both ears, limited benefit from hearing aids, medical condition that makes surgery risky. Children can be considered for cochlear implants if they have the similar conditions as adults and in addition have support from their educational institutions to development of auditory skills.

Male 52 My nose gets blocked as soon as the weather changes,soon as I try to sleep I can't breathe.I can only breathe with my mouth.And have the problem of runny nose as I try to eat.

Nasal blockage following weather change could be due to an allergy. Running nose while eating could be because of autonomic dysfunction. In either case, you could benefit with a steroid nasal spray. Please consult an ENT surgeon for the same.

Dizziness - Can it be a Sign of Ear Disturbance?

MBBS, MS - ENT, DNB (ENT)

Dizziness - Can it be a Sign of Ear Disturbance?

Are you feeling lightheaded, unbalanced or woozy lately? Are you having strange sensations in the ears and eyes? These indicate that you are suffering from dizziness, a condition affecting the body’s sensory organs. It can cause fainting at times as well. It is not a disease, but a symptom of several disorders. Dizziness is caused by inner ear disturbances, effects of medication, motion sickness and underlying health conditions, such as poor blood circulation, infections or injuries.

Test and diagnosis
If you feel dizzy for a prolonged period of time or if the dizziness occurs and reoccurs, a special treatment is required. This is because dizziness may make you prone to several risks in everyday life. Several tests are carried out to find out the cause of the dizziness. If a stroke is suspected, an MRI scan or CT scan is carried out. A physical examination is undertaken in which the way you walk and balance are observed and the nerves of the central nervous system are checked. Hearing and balance tests may also be required, which are as follows:

  • Eye movement testing in which the path of the eyes is observed while tracking an object in motion. An eye motion test may be given where cold and warm water is placed in the ear canal.
  • Head movement tests are carried out when benign paroxysmal positional vertigo is suspected.

Treatment
Treatment of dizziness includes medicines, therapies and balance exercises.

Medicines

  • Water pills are prescribed when a patient has Meniere’s disease, which helps in reducing dizziness.
  • Antihistamines provide temporary relief from dizziness.

Therapy

  • Head position maneuvers: A technique known as canalith repositioning helps in resolving dizziness quickly. It can be performed by a doctor, therapist or audiologist. The position of the head is maneuvered in the process.
  • Balance therapy: Several exercises help in making the body’s balance system lesser sensitive to motion. This technique, known as vestibular rehabilitation, is used for people suffering from dizziness due to inner ear conditions.
  • Psychotherapy: This therapy may be used for patients who experience dizziness because of anxiety disorders.
  • Use of antibiotics: An antibiotic by the name of gentamicin may be injected in the inner ear for disabling the balance function. The unaffected ear performs that function.
  • Other procedures: A procedure known as labyrinthectomy may be used for disabling the vestibular labyrinth in the affected ear.

If you experience dizziness continuously, it is important for you to visit an ENT specialist. An ENT specialist deals with problems related to the ear, nose and throat and will be able to provide you with the best diagnosis and treatment for dizziness.

Hi, you have the problem of chronic gastritis as per the symptoms that you have described, though is better to once diagnose the exact problem by taking a consultation of gastroenterolgist. If you already have diagnosis with you then kindly disclose it so that I can guide you more appropriately. Moreover whatever the final diagnosis may be as per your symptoms you will be always prescribed medicines like omeprazole and its similar compositions which may help you temporarily but will not cure, also long term gastritis may lead to deeper and serious complaints like gastric ulcer and similar which then takes longer time to get treated, it is better to intervene as early as possible. Homeopathy can help you to cure this problem permanently after proper case taking. Meanwhile you can make little lifestyle and dietary changes as follows: 1. Drink plenty of water, fruits and salads. 2. Avoid non-vegetarian food as much as possible and strict no to red meat. 3. Dont remain hungry for too long, keep taking frequent small meals rather that overloading your stomach after long gaps. 4. Dont drink cold water during and after meals as it slows down digestion process. Drink half to 1 glass of normal water during meals and after meals dont drink water for atleast 1 hour and still if you want you can take lukewarm water after meals. 5. Keep an interval of at least 2 hours between your dinner and retiring to bed. 6. Avoid excessive spicy, fried and fatty food. 7 do exercises like brisk morning walk or evening walk before dinner, if after dinner, then walk after 1-to 1.5 hours, do not walk immediately after meals.

Hi, My daughter aged 5 years has been advised an adenoidectomy. She is a mouth breather, gets ear infections whenever she gets a cold which she picks up from school. There is no other complication. But there is definite improvement - the snoring has stopped etc. I am very hesitant to have her get this operation. Is there some way to avoid this operation?

DNB (ENT), MBBS, MNAMS - Otorhinolaryngology
ENT Specialist, Gurgaon
Enlarged adenoids cause mouth breathing in children mainly in the age-group of 4 to 8 years. Long term mouth breathing can lead to lot of problems for the child like Dental mal-occlusion & change in shape of bones of face during the growing age. Your daughter requires medical management & if not responding then surgery should be planned to prevent Dental & facial distortion.
