When to consult in audiology?
Here are different situations and reasons that may lead you to make an appointment:
When you find that your child is having difficulty listening in class, is having difficulty learning, or that your teenager is constantly listening to music at too high a volume.
Our audiologists can perform an analysis of the hearing abilities of your child or teenager. They can then establish their needs according to their living environment and habits, by offering them:
- Communication and lip reading strategies (lip reading);
- A recommendation (or adjustment, for a patient with known deafness) of hearing aids;
- Hearing aid recommendations. For example: for a child in a school context, the use of a wireless communication tool, the signal of which is transmitted by radio waves by frequency modulation (MF) between a transmitter - a microphone worn by the teacher - and the receiver - the hearing aid worn by the student.
When your work environment is extremely noisy, causing continuous tinnitus or ringing in your ears.
Our audiologists can analyze the impacts of constant noise on your hearing and can suggest therapy to relieve your tinnitus.
When someone around you shows signs of oral incomprehension.
Without limiting themselves to them, here are a few situations that should put you on the spot. For example, when this person:
- Does not respond when you speak to her or does not respond when she does not see someone speaking to her;
- Asks to repeat, especially if she cannot see the other person's face;
- Give answers that have nothing to do with the question asked;
- Stares at the other party when talking to them;
- Needs to be very close to the other person to be able to understand what he is saying;
- Seems to have difficulty or uncomfortable chatting in a group, or following a conversation in a noisy place;
- Shows signs of frustration or impatience during conversations, for no apparent reason;
- Mention regularly having dizziness, imbalance or the unpleasant sensation that his ears are blocked.
How is a hearing assessment performed?
The most common test is a hearing assessment, the results of which are recorded on an audiogram. An audiogram is a graph on which frequencies are recorded in Hertz. The most serious sounds have the lowest frequency in Hertz (125 Hz), while the most acute sounds have the highest frequency (8000 Hz).
It is thanks to the results compiled on the audiogram that the audiologist can make his recommendations because it indicates the type of hearing loss you or your loved ones are experiencing, its severity and its type.
If you have results of previous examinations or medical reports from other professionals (audiologist, ENT doctor, etc.), please obtain a copy and bring a copy to your appointment. You are responsible for paying the fees for obtaining these documents from said professionals.
