Hi. Ear related vertigo are best corrected with excercises. In old age lake of proper head movements will lead to such giddiness. These problems starts with a sudden movement of head like getting up from bed quickly or turning arround or bending down etc. For more details you can consult me online.

I have been prescribed fexofenadine hydrochloride & montelukast tablets for my tonsils and I have been using it for 2 weeks and still told me to continue the medicine. So I just want to know that if its okay to consume them for the allergic reaction happening to my tonsils and also if I consume them for long term will they effect me anyhow?

It's not of much adverse effects but it's unlikely to give such tablets for tonsil infection. It will be better if you could give more details on this for a better treatment suggestions.

Nasoclear nasal wash is pretty useful for nasal congestion. It's also helps in washing out nasal discharge. It's may feel painful if you hit on the septum that divides your nose into 2, Or if you forcefully spray on to the roof of nose. These kinds of nasal sprays are to be sprayed perpendicular to the nose by keeping the nosil inside the nose.

It's better not to continue soliwax. It may make wax further bulky and you may get pain. Better consult an ent specialist. Soliwax helps to make the hard wax soft and it's gets removed by itself only it has sufficient space to come out.

Cochlear Implants - How To Deal With It?

Cochlear Implants - How To Deal With It?

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.

Blood reports shows an elevated esr. Any inflammatory reaction can raise esr. Reason for nasal bleed should be check. Along with the blood value if you have inr pt and aptt values then it will be wise. There are cardiac medication which leads to bleeding from nose. Even increased blood pressure is a cause. When small capillaries (blood vessels) breaks causing bleeding.
