Know All About Hearing Aids

Know All About Hearing Aids

What is a hearing aid?

A hearing aid is an electronic device that we can wear in or behind our ear. It helps a person with hearing loss to listen, communicate effectively. A hearing aid has three basic parts: a microphone, amplifier, and speaker. The hearing aid receives sound through a microphone, which converts the sound waves to electrical signals and sends them to an amplifier. The amplifier increases the power of the signals and then sends them to the ear through a speaker.

How hearing aids help?

Hearing aids are useful in improving the hearing and speech comprehension of people who have hearing loss that results from damage to the small sensory cells in the inner ear, called hair cells. This type of hearing loss is called sensorineural hearing loss. The damage can occur as a result of disease, aging, or injury from noise or certain medicines.

A hearing aid magnifies sound vibrations entering the ear. Surviving hair cells detect the larger vibrations and convert them into neural signals that are passed along to the brain. The greater the damage to a person’s hair cells, the more severe the hearing loss, and the greater the hearing aid amplification needed to make up the difference. However, there are practical limits to the amount of amplification a hearing aid can provide. In addition, if the inner ear is too damaged, even large vibrations will not be converted into neural signals. In this situation, a hearing aid would be ineffective.

How can I find out if I need a hearing aid?

If you think you might have hearing loss and could benefit from a hearing aid, visit an Audiologist. An Audiologist is a hearing health professional who identifies and measures hearing loss and will perform a hearing test to assess the type and degree of loss and dispenses the hearing aids if needed.

What are the different styles of hearing aids?

Behind-the-ear (BTE) hearing aids consist of a hard plastic case worn behind the ear and connected to a plastic ear mold that fits inside the outer ear. The electronic parts are held in the case behind the ear. Sound travels from the hearing aid through the ear mold and into the ear. BTE aids are used by people of all ages for mild to profound hearing loss.

Behind-the-Ear Aid: Open Fitting

A small plastic case rests behind the ear, and a very fine clear tube runs into the ear canal. Inside the ear canal, a small, soft silicone dome or a molded, highly vented acrylic tip holds the tube in place. These aids offer cosmetic and listening advantages and are used typically for adults.

Receiver-in-Canal Aids

These aids look very similar to the behind-the-ear hearing aid with a unique difference: the speaker of the hearing aid is placed inside the ear canal, and thin electrical wires replace the acoustic tube of the BTE aid. These aids also offer cosmetic and listening advantages and are typically used for adults.

The in-the-canal (ITC) hearing aid is made to fit the size and shape of a person’s ear canal. A completely-in-canal (CIC)hearing aid is nearly hidden in the ear canal. They usually are not recommended for young children .They are the smallest aids available and offer some cosmetic and listening advantages.

Do all hearing aids work the same way?

Hearing aids work differently depending on the electronics used. The two main types of electronics are analog and digital.

Analog aids convert sound waves into electrical signals, which are amplified. Analog/adjustable hearing aids are custom built to meet the needs of each user. The aid is programmed by the manufacturer according to the specifications recommended by your audiologist. Analog/programmable hearing aids have more than one program or setting. An audiologist can program the aid using a computer, and you can change the program for different listening environments—from a small, quiet room to a crowded restaurant to large, open areas, such as a theater or stadium. Analog/programmable circuitry can be used in all types of hearing aids. Analog aids usually are less expensive than digital aids.

Digital aids convert sound waves into numerical codes, similar to the binary code of a computer, before amplifying them. Because the code also includes information about a sound’s pitch or loudness, the aid can be specially programmed to amplify some frequencies more than others.

Digital circuitry gives an audiologist more flexibility in adjusting the aid to a user’s needs and to certain listening environments. These aids also can be programmed to focus on sounds coming from a specific direction. Digital circuitry can be used in all types of hearing aids.

Which hearing aid will work best for me?

The hearing aid that will work best for you depends on the kind and severity of your hearing loss. If you have a hearing loss in both of your ears, two hearing aids are generally recommended because two aids provide a more natural signal to the brain. Hearing in both ears also will help you understand speech and locate where the sound is coming from.

You and your audiologist should select a hearing aid that best suits your needs and lifestyle. Price is also a key consideration because hearing aids range from few thousand to lakhs. Similar to other equipment purchases, style and features affect cost. However, don’t use price alone to determine the best hearing aid for you. Just because one hearing aid is more expensive than another does not necessarily mean that it will better suit your needs.

A hearing aid will not restore your normal hearing. With practice, however, a hearing aid will increase your awareness of sounds and their sources. You will want to wear your hearing aid regularly, so select one that is convenient and easy for you to use. Other features to consider include parts or services covered by the warranty, estimated schedule and costs for maintenance and repair, and the hearing aid company’s reputation for quality and customer service.

Pilonidal Sinus - How Ayurveda Can Help Treat It?

Pilonidal Sinus - How Ayurveda Can Help Treat It?

Pilonidal refers to a nest of hair. A pilonidal sinus or PNS is an abscess or a small cyst that is often witnessed at the top left-hand corner of the buttocks. It is a tube-like structure that possesses a tuft of hair. PNS consists of debris, hair, and dirt resulting from infection leading to severe pain. In case PNS becomes infected, it can ooze blood and pus along with a foul smell. This condition is often witnessed in people who are required to sit for a very long time at one go. A truck driver for instance often suffers from this condition.

What are the symptoms?
There are no visible symptoms during the initial phase of this condition. There could be a small depression in the skin that can develop into a cyst. Some of the notable signs of this disease include pain while sitting, sore skin, reddening of the area, a cyst swelling to a considerable extent, formation of multiple cysts. At times, mild fever can also be present along with the other symptoms.

What are the possible causes of pilonidal sinus?
Although the exact cause of PNS is not known, researchers believe that it happens due to a combination of friction of clothes, changing hormones, a growth of hair inside the skin etc. Apart from this, some of the other reasons include over sweating, hair twisting inside the skin, lack of hygiene in the sacral region, improper sitting posture etc.

How Ayurveda can treat PNS?
Ayurveda treats pilonidal sinus with the help of Kshra sutra treatment. This treatment is believed to be the best replacement to modern medicine and can be an alternative to the complex surgeries and pain. Here is how the treatment proceeds:

  1. The patient is kept in a prone position
  2. With proper anaesthesia and an aseptic measure in place, the track is identified with a probe
  3. The track is then cleaned and a herbal medicated thread (Ayurveda calls this Kshara sutra) is placed and temporarily fixed onto that place
  4. Turmeric is a key ingredient of this herbal mixture. It has been scientifically proved that turmeric has tremendous healing power.
  5. The thread produces a hygroscopic action due to the presence of proteolytic enzymes, this causes the debris to come out of the cyst
  6. Kshara Sutra has the capability to cut through the cyst and simultaneously heal it as well
  7. It is necessary to change the Kshara Sutra every week to speed up the healing process

With every visit, the length of the track and the Kshara Sutra that was inserted keeps decreasing. Finally, the track gets completely cut through with the impact of the sutra and the disease gets cured from within by shedding debris.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I'm suffering from throat pain (sore throat) while swallowing since 3-4 days. I smoke around 30 cigarettes a month. I've been smoking since 2 years. Is it due to smoking or acidity because I've been eating late nights since 5-6 days. If it's due to smoking, does it lead to cancer?

Yes, smoking is one of the major provocative factor for cancer. But we should not jump to conclusion without evidence or proper report. Kindly get an endoscopy done. If there are any cancerous changes, get a biopsy done. If not, it will tell exactly if there is acidity related changes or any ulcers. My strong advice would be to stop smoking and drinking at once. Avoid tea/coffee/spicy and oily food untill you have a diagnosis.
