All You Need To Know About Cochlear Implant

MS - ENT, DNB (ENT)
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Delhi
All You Need To Know About Cochlear Implant

Are you experiencing severe hearing loss or turning deaf? To get back your normal hearing, you should undertake a cochlear. It is a small device which is planted in your ear via a surgical procedure. It sends impulses to the auditory nerve directly and as a result, sound signals are carried to your brain. Such an implant does not make you hear like normal again, but it helps you with sounds and knowing sounds around you such as telephones, alarms and doorbells.

How Does Cochlear Implant Work?

Cochlear implant is meant for adults and children who have sensorineural hearing loss. This is a condition which damages the tiny hair cells in the inner ear known as the cochlea. Your hearing gets impaired when these are damaged. A cochlear implant sends signals to the auditory nerve directly by skipping the damaged hair cells.

The device has two distinct parts. One part is the receiver-stimulator which is placed under the skin via surgery. The other part is the speech processor, which is worn around the back of the ear like a hearing aid. The outside device is, however, bigger in size than a hearing aid.

The receiver is placed under the skin, behind the ear through a small incision and it gets connected to electrodes. This is put into the cochlea of the inner ear. The surgery takes about some hours to be completed.

Two weeks after the surgery, the speech processor is fitted by the doctor. You will have to wear a microphone behind your ear. The processor can be connected to the microphone and worn around the ear. It can also be worn at any other place of the body, depending on your age and lifestyle.

Advantages of Cochlear Implant-

The major advantages of a cochlear implant are as follows:

  1. You may be able to hear speech at an almost normal level.

  2. You may understand speech without the help of lip reading.

  3. It will be easy for you to talk on the phone and listen to the television.

  4. Your experience of listening to music will improve.

  5. You will be able to pick up different sounds starting from soft, medium to loud sounds.

  6. You can also control your own voice in a better way, which will make it easier for others to understand you.

A cochlear implant can be a life changing device if you suffer from serious hearing loss. The results are not the same for everyone and vary from person to person. Some people may benefit more than others.

My husband is having breathing problem.

MD - Consultant Physician, MBBS
General Physician,
Hello welcome to lybrate. There are two possibilities: 1. Bronchial asthma. 2. Cardiac issues. Breathlessness in night which awakens you from sleep is usually a sign of heart failure and is called as paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea (pnd). This pnd required evaluation. I would advise in such scenario: 1. Hemogram with esr 2. Ecg 3. Chest xray 4. Pulmonary function test 5. Echo if cardiac issues are found you would be treated accordingly, else you will be treated for asthma. Your doctor would evaluate you clinically. If you don't have severe chest congestion, he would treat you with anti-allergic drugs like levocetrizine and montelukast. He may add deriphylline or doxophylline for the chest spasms. If your chest congestion is very severe and there are wheezes and rhonchi's, then inhalers containing bronchi dilators like salbutamol would be required. You might also require short dose of steriod inhaler like budenoside. Share my opinion with your doctor before acting upon it. I hope it helps. Stay healthy.

I'm suffering from snoring It's getting irritated to my friends who sleeping besides me please give me good suggestions to get rid of snoring.

PGD IN ULTRAASONOGRAPHY, Non invasive cardiology course, MD - Medicine, MBBS
General Physician, Narnaul
When you snore, structures in the mouth and throat’the tongue, upper throat, soft palate, and uvula’vibrate against the tonsils and adenoids. There are many possible causes. Overweight people are more likely to snore, and experts think it’s because the extra fatty tissue compresses the air passages. Drinking alcohol before bedtime is another factor: It causes throat muscles to relax and tissues to sag. And whenever you have nasal congestion from a cold or allergies, you’re more likely to snore, because inflamed tissues and extra mucus interfere with airflow. Tricks to prevent snoring Try the following preventive measures to reduce or eliminate snoring. Changing your sleeping position may be all it takes, but a larger project’namely, losing weight’is often the real ticket to tranquil nights. ‘ Buy yourself a few extra pillows and prop yourself up in bed, rather than lying flat on your back. You’ll prevent the tissues in your throat from falling into your air passages. ‘ Elevate the head of your bed. An easy way to do it is to place several flat boards under the legs at the top end of the bed. A couple of short lengths of two-by-eights or two-by-tens under each leg should raise the bed enough to do the trick. ‘ Sleep on your side. Of course, there’s no guarantee you’ll stay in that position, but at least start on your side with your arms wrapped around a pillow. There’s a good reason you don’t want to sleep on your back: In that position, your tongue and soft palate rest against the back of your throat, blocking the airway. ‘ If hugging a pillow doesn’t help, you can ace the problem with service from a sewn-in tennis ball. Here’s how: Sew a little pouch on the back of your pajama top and tuck a tennis ball inside. At night, if you start to roll on your back while you’re sleeping, you’ll get a nudge from that tennis ball, prompting you to get back on your side. ‘ If nasal congestion is causing your snoring, take a decongestant or antihistamine before you turn in. ‘ Tape your nose open with nasal strips, available at most drugstores. They may look odd, but who’s watching? Following the directions on the package, tape one of the strips to the outside of your nose before you fall asleep. They’ll lift and open your nostrils to increase airflow. ‘ Gargle with a peppermint mouthwash to shrink the lining of your nose and throat. This is especially effective if your snoring is a temporary condition caused by a head cold or an allergy. To mix up the herbal gargle, add one drop of peppermint oil to a glass of cold water. (But only gargle’do not swallow.) ‘ It sounds extreme, but some people have used a neck brace‘the kind people with whiplash wear’to stop their snoring. It works by keeping your chin extended so your throat doesn’t bend and your airway stays open. You don’t have to use a stiff plastic brace, however. A soft foam one, available at drugstores or medical supply stores, is less restraining and will work just as well. ‘ Reduce bedroom allergens (dust, pet dander, mold) to alleviate nasal stuffiness by vacuuming floors and drapes. Change sheets and pillowcases often. ‘ If your snoring is a seasonal problem’and you know you’re allergic to pollen’try drinking up to three cups of tea made from the herb stinging nettle. Herbalists recommend it for soothing inflammation caused by pollen allergies. To make the tea, pour 1 cup boiling water over 1 tablespoon of the dried leaf (available in health-food stores). Cover the tea and let it steep for 5 minutes. Strain and drink. Drink one cup of tea just before bedtime. ‘ Don’t eat a heavy meal or drink alcoholic beverages within three hours of turning in. Both can cause your throat muscles to relax more than normal. ‘ Snoring improves as you shed some weight. Losing 10 percent of your body weight can help by easing constriction of the upper airway. ‘ Quit smoking. Tobacco smoke irritates mucous membranes, so your throat swells, narrowing the airway. Smokers also have more problems with nasal congestion. ‘ If you’re regularly taking any kind of medication, talk to your doctor about alternatives. Some drugs can make snoring worse, including sleeping pills and sedatives. ‘ Dry air can contribute to snoring. There are lots of ways to do battle with dry air. A humidifier or steam vaporizer in the bedroom can keep your air passages moist; just be sure to clean it regularly, following the manufacturer’s instructions. Another approach: Just before bedtime, fill a bowl with hot water, drape a towel over your head, bend over the bowl so your nose is roughly 15 centimeters from the water, and breathe deeply through your nose for a few minutes. A short course in snoring self-defense If you’re living with someone who snores, there’s a better than even chance the nightly sonorities are fraying your relationship. But remember, other spouses and partners have dealt with this too’and survived. So before you head for the hills, consider some practical methods to deal with the rumblings of your otherwise lovable bedmate. ‘ Buy yourself a pair of earplugs. They are inexpensive and quite comfortable, once you get accustomed to them. ‘ A white-noise machine can make nights with a snorer more bearable. These electronic devices produce a consistent sound that muffles other noises. ‘ Turn in well before your snoring spouse. That way, at least, you have a head start on a good night’s sleep. When to see the doctor about snoring Loud, excessive snoring can signal sleep apnea, a potentially dangerous condition that requires treatment. Contact your doctor if you’re a loud snorer who stops breathing for short periods when you’re asleep. You should also notify the doctor if you sometimes wake up gasping for breath, if you wake up with headaches, or if you’re sleepy during the day. Sleep apnea can reduce levels of oxygen in the blood, eventually leading to elevated blood pressure and an enlarged heart. In addition to lifestyle modifications (losing weight or changing your sleeping position), some doctors sometimes recommend a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) device for nightly use. Surgery is also possible. Don’t miss out!

If pain persists and blockage increase see an ent specialist for proper examination and further treatment like removal or syringing etc.

This device may temporarily press your nasal tissue, but it will not create any long term durable difference in the shape of your nose. Rhinoplasty surgery is the best option if you would like to change your nose shape.

Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Kolkata
Dust allergy is partly genetic and partly environmental. Thus it never goes away. With better ,less dusty environment  the extent if the problem gets reduced. Medicines help to downregulate the immune response of your body to these environmental allergens. Long term lifestyle  changes with gradually tapering medication  helps to tackle chronic sinus problems.  Start taking Steam inhalation twice a day. *For chronic allergic rhinosinusitis you will need to take a long term course of antibiotics  together  with Nasal sprays . *You will need to avoid dusty environment  and dust mites, animal dander etc. Regular cleaning of AC air filters. Wearing mask while driving 2 wheelers/working in dusty  areas Medical  management  is done for 3 months and then patients  condition is reviewed.  Intermittent treatment is not beneficial  in the long run. Around 30 %of people with allergic rhinitis  will develop Asthma if not treated .But majority of patients with asthma are allergic to dust .Active treatment  of nasal allergy reduces Asthma attacks and medicine requirements. This improve  quality of life .allergens.

Waxed with Allergic Rhinnitis and Sinusitis Hear is the Solution

Doctor of Homeopathic Medicine (H.M.D.)
Homeopath, Belgaum
Waxed with Allergic Rhinnitis and Sinusitis Hear is the Solution

It is difficult to distinguish between allergy symptoms allergic rhinitis and sinusitis. This is no small problem. Of all the chronic diseases from which we suffer, allergic rhinitis is the most common. Approximately 30 million Indian or 15% of the Indian, population suffer from allergic rhinitis. Sinusitis, on the other hand, is one of the most common complications of allergic rhinitis. The problem with differentiating these two conditions occurs, because allergic rhinitis and sinusitis may both present with the same symptoms, such as fatigue, runny nose, chronic cough, congestion, post nasal drainage, headaches, facial or teeth pain, loss of taste or smell, and difficulty sleeping. Asthma, the other major complication of allergic rhinitis, is a lower airway lung disease that may present with cough, shortness of breath, and chest tightness, and in some studies, up to 40% of patients with allergies, have asthma.

Think then of a triangle: with allergic rhinitis on the left, causing sinusitis on the right, and both conditions causing asthma on the bottom. All three conditions can occur separately, but are closely interconnected. Remember that sinuses are simply empty cavities that surround the eyes. Air must be present in the sinuses to allow the linings of the sinuses to breathe and this is accomplished via small openings from the sinuses into the nasal passages. These openings also allow mucous from the sinuses to naturally drain into the nasal passages. If anything causes a blockage of the openings, the lack of air causes linings to use up the surrounding air supply, and like a vacuum, the resulting negative pressure will draw fluid out of the sinus linings. Fluid may then collect and fill the sinuses, which allows for bacteria to grow and cause infections. This can lead to facial pain, infected post nasal drainage and headaches. With increasing inflammation and thickening of the sinus linings, swollen tissue may round up and form nasal polyps that may cause and lead to loss of taste and smell.

Allergic rhinitis and common viral colds are the leading causes of sinusitis, and the history and physical examination will help your provider distinguish the two conditions. Allergic rhinitis may be seasonal, lasting weeks, months or even year round, and is caused by pollen, dust mites. Fever and discolored nasal drainage are uncommon, unless sinusitis is also present. Conversely, typical viral colds last 3-7 days, so any fever, discolored drainage, sore throat, headache or fatigue lasting longer that 7 days is very unlikely to be a simple viral cold, and is most probably sinusitis. On physical examination, patients with allergic rhinitis and sinusitis may both have dark circles under the eyes (shiners), swollen, pale nasal tissue, congestion and discharge. Patients with sinusitis, however, may also have discolored discharge. Studies have shown that greater than 50-75% of allergic adults and children with asthma have abnormal sinus, and asthmatic symptoms did not improve until the sinusitis is treated completely.
ALLERGIC RHINITIS
Most patients 10-20% of the population with sneezing, congestion, runny and itchy nose rhinitis, postnasal drip and itchy, red eyes during spring and fall have allergies to seasonal pollens. A high percentage of allergic individuals will be children. Whether someone will develop

Allergies depends on two factors: (1) Hereditary - Is there a family history of allergy?
(2) Environmental- Is the individual old enough and been exposed to enough pollen? Symptoms due to allergies may be severe enough to cause a loss of time from work and school.

Interestingly, a percentage of patients with classic symptoms will be absolutely and unequivocally negative on skin testing. Allergy injections are not indicated and not possible, because these patients are not allergic. And yet patients are just as symptomatic, and just as miserable as the rest of us. How is this possible and what treatment is available?
Definition and Pathophysiology
The diagnosis of rhinitis without positive skin tests is divided into two subgroups. One subgroup, non-allergic rhinitis with eosinophilia, presents with allergy symptoms in addition to conditions such as nasal polyps and nasal eosinophilia, asthma and frequently sinusitis. The other subgroup, vasomotor rhinitis, presents with symptoms, especially congestion, but lacks other associated conditions.

The nasal mucosal lining has a rich blood supply that is under the control of the nervous system called the autonomic nervous system. Nonspecific stimuli such as rapid changes in weather, temperature and humidity, drafts, exposure to chemicals, odors, perfumes, smoke and dust, emotions or stress may increase blood flow to tissue, resulting in swelling, congestion and rhinitis. A significantly deviated septum may induce changes in the mucosa, worsen the non-allergic or vasomotor rhinitis and cause more nasal congestion and drainage. Hormonal changes that occur with pregnancy, menstruation, menopause, hypothyroidism and oral contraceptives may cause symptoms of chronic non-allergic rhinitis.
Clinical Features
Patients complain of chronic nasal congestion, rhinitis, postnasal drip and sneezing. Congestion and blockage may alternate from side to side and are usually constant, though seasonal weather changes may trigger symptoms that mimic dust allergies. Symptoms may be worse upon awakening in the morning. Examination reveals marked pink or pale nasal swelling obstruction and thick nasal secretions. In all cases, skin tests are negative. Patients with non-allergic but not vasomotor rhinitis will have eosinophils present in nasal secretions and frequently nasal polyps complicating the obstruction.
SINUSITIS
Sinusitis
Sinusitis is an infection or inflammation of sinuses. Sinuses are the air-filled pockets or spaces found in the bones of face, around eyes and nose. They produce mucus, which, under normal circumstances, drains into the nose. Normally the sinuses produce about 1.5 litres of mucus a day and the quantity increases during allergy, inflammation and infection and this also changes the character of the mucus. Infection of sinuses is one of the common health care complaints.

Pathology
Sinusitis occurs when the mucus-producing lining of sinuses become inflamed and block the opening of the sinuses. Due to this, foreign material cannot get out, oxygen levels drop within the sinus and bacteria in the nasal cavity slither into the sinuses causing the sinus walls to swell and fill with pus. If the infection does not subside, the body sends in disease-fighting cells to kill the bacteria, which in turn can do considerable damage to the sinus walls. These defender cells can damage the cilia, the hair-like structure in the sinuses that help expel foreign matter. In addition, scarring can be caused which can result in the formation of sores.

Causes of Sinusitis

Infection due to bacteria, virus, fungi
Allergy: Most commonest causes are dust, animal dander, smoke, food and pollutants
Upper respiratory tract infection such as common cold or flu
Nasal polyps
Nasal Septum deviation
Chronic tonsillitis and adenoiditis
Climatic factors like sudden temperature changes
Swimming in infected water
Low immunity
Dental causes like an abscessed or badly decayed tooth, following dental treatment
Diseases like diabetes and HIV can create a predisposition to sinusitis

Symptoms of sinusitis

Nasal congestion leading to nasal obstruction, difficulty breathing through the nose
Thick nasal discharge (may be yellowish or greenish in colour in case of infection)
Sensation of fullness in the face
Sensation of pressure behind the eyes
Postnasal drip
Cheeks feel tender and pain may be similar to toothache in upper jaw
Mild fever and headache over one or both eyes (if frontal sinuses are affected)
Headache is usually worse in the mornings and made sharper by bending forwards
Sore throat
Foul smell in nose
Nasal sounding speech
Possibly, pus-like nasal discharge
Dry tickling cough
Tiredness

Asthmatic Attack
In the initial stage there is an asthmatic aura sometimes sneezing, flatulence, Drowsiness or restlessness irritability will be present. There can be a dry cough along with wheezing breathlessness these are some of the symptoms before the actual asthmatic attack.

Sense of oppression in the chest suddenly in the middle of the night is experienced.
There is a sense of suffocation and the patient leans forward fighting for his breath; or he may go to the open window to relieve the suffocation.
Anxiety, perspiration, cold extremities and cyanosis might be present.
Wheezing is present and can be heard from a distant.
In severe airways obstruction airflow maybe so reduced that the chest is almost silent on auscultation.
Inspiration is short and high pitched while the expiration is prolonged. On auscultation there are plenty of rhonchi and rales heard.
Termination is spontaneous or due to medication. As the bronchial spasm is less the patient is able to breathe and he can also cough which brings out viscid sputum which relieves him.
The duration of the attack varies from a few minutes to hours. The attacks can last for many hours in paroxysms this state is known as Status asthmaticus. In this state the patient has to be admitted to the hospital so that he can be supplied with oxygen and other auxiliary methods of treatment

For many patients with asthma, the concern that this “reversible” though serious, potentially life-threatening persistent lung disease may progress into emphysema, is real and worrisome. After all, asthma along with emphysema and chronic bronchitis, the latter two conditions known as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Diseases (COPD), all have inflammation with airway narrowing, mucus production and airway obstruction. Homeopathy Management

Suppression of colds by high doses of conventional medicine leads to recurrent attacks. When you use a groom to clean your room, do you push all the dust in a corner of the room or collect it and throw away? It is a common sense that if you push to the corner of the room, in due course the dust will spread in the entire room again and make it dirtier. Same is the case with the disease affecting your body. If you suppress the disease, where will it go? It will remain in dormant state inside the body and express itself again when the body meets any of the allergic triggers. The homeopathic medicines however through the principle of “like cures like” stimulate the vital force and immunity in order to enhance the body’s capacity to repel further allergies and infections. The constitutional medicines that are found by considering the physical, mental, and emotional aspects of an individual can only lead him on the road of permanent recovery from those allergic spells. Not only these medicines cater the problem of allergy but also impart great health on all planes, as it treats the patient as a whole and not just his disease.
