Will hearing aid use prevent further damage and hearing loss for someone with sensory neuronal hearing loss?

Will hearing aid use prevent further damage and hearing loss for someone with sensory neuronal hearing loss?

Perhaps.: I would maintain that the answer is "maybe". There is at least the suggestion that if you restore stimulus to the auditory cortex via the current hearing aid technology, that part of the brain that has been deprived of input can actually improve it's function. The brain has "plasticity" and might well slow or even arrest additional hearing loss if incoming signals are restored. ...Read more

Could a head injury from a car crash cause loss of executive function?

Could a head injury from a car crash cause loss of executive function?

Head injury: Yes. A head injury in a car crash is likely to be at least a concussion (in which the violent impact forces the soft brain tissue to decelerate abruptly against the skull). Concusions cause regional brain disturbances, particularly in cognitive functions associated with the brain cortex, including executive function. The type of symptoms depend on the location of brain contusion. ...Read more

Could an MRI of the inner auditory canal show noise induced hearing loss?

Not likely: Noise induced hearing loss involves more function than anatomy. Mri will show damaged tissue; eg drum, the bones of middle ear, etc. Audiometric testing will show degree of loss. An ENT and most family docs are able to differentiate between conduction loss vs sensory loss. ...Read more

Do childhood earaches cause hearing loss later?

Do childhood earaches cause hearing loss later?

Depends: One problem in the pre-antibiotic era was a condition where the ear bones became immobile because of chronic infections.There is even a specialty of ear docs who would replace them. With today's availability of meds and monitoring this is seldom a problem. Any time they have a middle ear infection there is a transient decline in hearing, but it usually returns to baseline after it clears with rx. ...Read more

Can a blow to the head with no loss of consciousness have any brain damage ?

Can a blow to the head with no loss of consciousness have any brain damage ?

Not likely: The brain is well cushioned in a pool of fluid surrounded by a tough bony shell.
