Cochlear Implant - The Many Benefits Of It

Cochlear Implant - The Many Benefits Of It

A cochlear implant is an electronic device that is used to restore hearing ability in people who suffer from hearing loss due to inner ear damage. Unlike hearing aids which amplify sounds so people with hearing loss are better able to perceive them, cochlear implants directly transmit electronic sound signals to the auditory nerve. They work by compensating for damaged cochlea, the part of inner ear that converts sound waves into neural impulses which are perceived by the brain

  1. A child who cannot hear will also never be able to speak. 
  2. Inability to hear and speak puts a person at disadvantage in society. 
  3. Simple tasks like talking on the phone which we take for granted become impossible. 
  4. Conventional methods of learning like attending a classroom lecture become impossible. 
  5. Brain development and intelligence is closely linked to development of speech and language. 
  6. Inability of parents to communicate with child leads to emotional distancing. 
  7. Integrating a hearing disabled person in to society becomes a frustrating experience for all involved. 
  8. Cost of integration per capita in much higher when compared to cost of Cochlear Implant. 
  9. Children with Cochlear Implants are fully integrated in society with normal hearing & speech. 
  10. Children with Cochlear Implants can attend regular schools & colleges 
  11. Early identification of hearing impairment gives children a better chance of developing speech and language skills, and of making the most of social and emotional interaction from an early age. 

Cochlear implants offer a multitude of benefits to people experiencing hearing loss, especially infants and children with severe hearing loss who are just starting to process language and speech. Some of these benefits are: 

  1. Hearing and communication – Cochlear implants improve hearing significantly, especially to a level where normal communication can be restored. It enhances the person’s ability to hear speech without relying on visual cues such as lip reading or hand signs. It makes telephonic conversation a lot easier. Cochlear implants also help people regulate their own voice and volume so that it is easier for others to understand them. 
  2. Quality of life - It can help people with hearing loss listen to and enjoy music and also watch television with sounds. It helps people listen to sounds in a noisy environment and differentiate soft sounds from loud ones. 
  3. Safety – Cochlear implants enhance the individual’s safety as it allows the person to be able to hear warning sounds like honking cars or ambulance sirens. This will allow people to navigate public spaces in a much safer way. 
  4. Society - For children with hearing loss, cochlear implants can help them adjust a lot better to regular schools instead of requiring special institutions. 
  5. Brain development - It can help infants with cochlear damage develop their speech recognition and speaking skills much faster. 

Cochlear implants 

  1. Only device of its kind that can restore a special sense.
  2. Consists of 2 parts-
    • One part is surgically implanted in the body 
    • Second part is worn behind the ear and communicates with internal part using wireless signals 
  3. Persons of any age can get a cochlear implant, from less than one year old children to 90 year old persons have received implants all around the world. 
  4. Cochlear implants can be done for partial hearing loss also, know as Hybrid implant that preserves the residual natural hearing and augments hearing only in certain sound frequencies in which hearing loss is present. 
  5. Are being used for indications other than hearing loss also like Tinnitus
  6. Surgery is a day care procedure for most patients. 

CochlearConsult a doctor to get a clear assessment of whether you would be an eligible candidate for a cochlear implant and what to expect from the procedure. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

5 Telltale Signs of Hearing Loss

5 Telltale Signs of Hearing Loss

Ageing is not the only factor that brings hearing impairment. The causes are many. Certain medications, continuous exposure to loud noise, genetic involvement, injury and some medical conditions may cause hearing loss.

But if you think that you are facing hearing issues, then these symptoms should raise an alarm for you to see an ENT specialist:

  1. You find it hard to hear phone conversations: Do you find yourself asking the person on the other end of the phone line to 'repeat' themselves, or find yourself pressing the phone instrument right into your ear? If you are trying so hard to hear, you might find yourself missing out on bits of the conversation as focussing to clearly hear the conversation is exhausting work. Getting a hearing test might be a good option if this sounds like you.
  2. Your TV is blaring: Do you often find people around you shouting above the TV sound complaining that it's too loud? When you find it hard to hear the TV at the average volume and find yourself turning up the sound, this could signify a hearing loss. Doctors are seeing a growing number of patients visiting them after prolonged exposure to loud music and sounds.
  3. You have trouble hearing in noisy environments: When you are out dining with friends or family at a busy restaurant or accompanying a friend shopping in a busy street, all that background noise makes it difficult to hear what the people are saying. People with hearing loss often have problems masking out background noise. 
  4. You find yourself leaning closer to people to follow the conversation or staring at their lips trying to lip-read what's being said.
  5. Family members telling 'you're going deaf'?: Trust the views of the people closest to you, they never lie about your health. Family members often are the first to sense signs of hearing loss as they find themselves repeating things to you or calling out louder to get your 'attention'.

As per the history given by u, your child is suffering from Noctutlrnal enuresis. Which mainly have two types primary & secondary enuresis. Does your child has not learned toilet training at night since birth or he has learned it earlier & again he has started bed wetting? First get URINE routine micro test done. In your case proper toilet training with restriction of oral fluids after 9 pm is needed.

You can exercise for healthier gums as well. Gently bite down so as to make sure that your teeth make a clinking sound when they meet. Repeat this 30 to 40 times continously. This exercise will stimulate the flow of blood and will keep your gums healthy.
