How Can You Know If Your Hearing Loss Is Severe And You Need To Reach Out To An Audiometrist In Sydney?

Audiometric testing Sydney that you can trust

If you have at any point in time experienced a slight difficulty in hearing, you may remember just how scared you were.

It can be a frightening experience to not be able to hear for a split second, the natural human response is to panic. 

Numerous people have suggestions as to what to do when you have hearing loss. But what about when you aren’t sure if that is what it is?

Here is something that might help. 

Hearing Aids’ Professionals – a team of audiometrists in Sydney explain how you can identify if hearing loss is setting in and what should be your further course of action. Before we get to that, it is essential that you must understand the basis of hearing, and how the mechanism of hearing operates. 

How does one perceive sound? 

Have you ever wondered? 

There is a sound somewhere out there. A chirping of a bird, the swishing of leaves, the call of a friend. How does that sound manage to make it into our ears and how do we make the connection between what is out there and what it is. 

The mechanism of hearing is beautiful. 

Here is how it works: 

  • When your friend calls out your name, the sound is in the form of a wave. 
  • The wave travels through the air and reaches your outer ear. 
  • It travels through the inner ear and reaches the eardrum. 
  • The eardrum vibrates and sends these vibrations to the middle ear. 
  • There are three tiny bones in the middle ear. The vibrations pass through these. 
  • The vibrations travel to the inner ear. 
  • The cochlea is present in the inner ear and is filled with fluid. 
  • The vibrations cause a ripple in the fluid of the cochlea. 
  • There are hair cells present in this portion and they too transmit the vibrations. 
  • Projections on the hair cells, bend and pores open up and chemicals enter in. 
  • An electrical impulse is created. 
  • This signal is carried by the auditory nerve to the brain. 
  • The brain perceives the sound. 
  • You make the connection that there is a sound, what the sound is, and that it is your friend calling out. 

When should you reach out to an audiometrist in Sydney?

Well, the right answer would be ‘as soon as you start experiencing any symptoms of hearing loss.

However, since most people shy away from admitting to this, here are some situations that might compel you to go consult an audiometrist in Sydney.

  • You get nervous while being in social situations as you cannot hear the other person. 
  • You find it difficult to understand dialogues in the theatre.
  • You turn up the volume on the TV to a decibel that gets disturbing to others in the room.
