Communication Participation Networking: Success through good hearing

Hearing loss - not me ?!

Introversion or shyness are not always the reason when People withdraw. A difficult, yes, an extremely sensitive topic. And unfortunately for many it is still taboo. "Hearing problems? Nope, at most a little too much on your proverbial ears.” And also:

"Even if you do, there's nothing you can do anyway, hearing aids only make noise and sooner or later you have to put them aside." Caught? You probably know that yourself from stories ... And yet: With the (audio)Problem just living, taking it for granted, isn't either Solution.

Those affected themselves often do not notice at first that their hearing is dwindling. This is due to the process, which usually begins insidiously, combined with a certain "habit factor". It is often relatives or colleagues in the immediate vicinity who are the first to notice the hearing loss.

Contrary to the belief of many people, hereditary hearing loss only affects a few percent of those affected. Usually it is acquired. Everyday noise pollution plays a central role here. It is now very high and means that hearing impairment is one of the six most common diseases in industrialized countries.

When do we speak of hearing loss?

Hearing acoustics essentially differentiate between three types of hearing loss: Conductive hearing loss is when the sound is no longer transmitted properly in the outer or middle ear - a type that can often be treated. The sensorineural hearing loss can occur in the inner ear as well as during sound processing. In the inner ear, it is considered to be the main cause of hearing loss and is due to damage to the hair cells.

If the damage affects the outer hair sensory cells, signal amplification is no longer possible; an irreversible image, but one that can be compensated for by hearing aids. If the inner hair sensory cells are affected, however, the transmission to the hearing processing is disturbed, so-called dead regions arise. There will be fewer signals to that Brain passed on that Network adapts, the degree of neural branching is reduced. As a result, the ability to hear selectively is increasingly lost. This process is reversible and can be counteracted with the help of qualified hearing therapy.

Hearing = ear and brain

When hearing, everyone thinks of their ears, i.e. the visible part of the human hearing process. Hearing encompasses much more than just this externally visible part. The human ear consists of the outer ear, middle ear and inner ear. The sound hits the outer ear, is received there, amplified and passed on to the middle ear. The transition from the outer to the middle ear occurs via the eardrum. When the incoming sound hits, it starts to vibrate. The resulting vibrations are transmitted to the three smallest human bones, hammer, anvil and stapes.

They represent the connection between the outer and inner ear and ensure the mechanical transmission of vibrations to the inner ear. During this process, the signal is amplified by up to 100 times. The cochlea is the central element of the hearing in the inner ear. There, a renewed amplification of up to 1000 times takes place via the outer hair cells. The mechanical stimuli are converted into electrical signals via the inner hair cells and subsequent nerve cells. The auditory nerve forwards this to the processing brain.

Loud alone is not enough

Although the inner ear and hair cells amplify the acoustic signals over a wide area, simply increasing the signal volume is usually not helpful in the case of hearing loss sustained. After the noises from the environment have been recorded, the brain first filters all sounds and thus separates the essential from the irrelevant. This allows us to follow conversations without being distracted by background noise or perceiving the large number of incoming impulses as noise.

In the case of hearing loss, not all of the noises reach the hearing filter in the brain. The result: it breaks down, loses its efficiency and thus its filter function. Hearing aids amplify the incoming tones, which then reach the hearing filter again. However, this can no longer handle the large flood of sound impulses, so that all impulses are passed on to the brain without being filtered. The consequence: noise perception. And the supposed "culprit" hearing aid is better put aside.

Hearing can be trained

Targeted hearing therapy prevents hearing aids from being taken off because of noise sensitivity. you Objective: A reactivation of the hearing filters so that important tones can be separated from unimportant noises.
