Some conditions Audiologist look into include hearing loss, tinnitus among other ear problems. An audiologist works together with an ear, nose and throat specialist but as opposed to an ENT specialist, he only focuses on the ear, conducts hearing test and helps assess the condition.
The vestibular system of the ear provides you with your sense of balance. The auditory component of the ear conducts sound waves which are ultimately transmitted and processed by the brain into sounds.
What are the conditions/tests and treatments under the scope of the audiologists?
When a patient complains of hearing problems, an audiologist is the one who assesses hearing by conducting hearing tests. Tinnitus is a common hearing problem. Tinnitus may be associated with hearing problems or conditions that affect hearing such as acute otitis media or ear injuries. Audiologists perform hearing tests such as audiometry, turning fork tests and auditory otoacoustic emission tests. In the event that hearing loss becomes permanent, hearing aids can be used to aid the patient’s hearing.
Hearing aids can either be cochlear implants or hearing amplifiers. It is important to conduct regular hearing tests to prevent permanent complications.
