Transcript of Cochlear Abnormality Patient 3

Structures Involved Cochlear Abnormality - 24 Year-old female Left Ear: The ear on the left side of the head. Individuals with profound sensorineural hearing loss may be able to hear environmental sounds after cochlear implantation.

With proper treatment such as implantations, surgery, and hearing aids, the outlook can look promising. However, it is also dependent upon the severity as well as the cause for the damage.
Patient 3 About Patient 3 -Congenital Cochlear Abnormality in left ear - Difficult time hearing low pitched noises -Difficulty followingconversation in
crowded rooms -Diagnosed with moderate low-to-mid frequency sensorineural hearing loss in left ear Sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) is a type of hearing loss in which the root cause lies in the vestibulocochlear nerve (Cranial nerve VIII), the inner ear, or central processing centers of the brain. Sensorineural hearing loss can be mild, moderate, or severe, including total deafness About SNHL Cochlea: The spiral cavity of the inner ear containing the organ of Corti,
which produces nerve impulses in response to sound vibrations. Sensorineural: (of hearing loss) Caused by a lesion or disease of the inner ear or the auditory nerve. :D Causes -Aging
-Previous damage to cochlea
-Diseases and Infections Prognosis Fun Ear Facts While your ears pick up the sound, it is your brain that does the hard work of making sense of it all.

Abnormalities in the inner ear of humans can cause deafness.
Excessive ear wax can impair hearing, especially if it is pressed hard against the eardrum.

Ear wax normally comes out of your ear naturally so it’s not a good idea to try and remove it yourself unless it is causing health problems (best to see your doctor first).
