It can : Yes it can. Conductive hearing loss is a form of hearing impairment due to a lesion in the external auditory canal or middle ear.Untreated chronic ear infections can lead to conductive hearing loss; draining the infected middle ear drum will usually return hearing to normal. Development of cholesteatoma-related to chronic otitis media- can also lead to hearing loss. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Yes: Aminoglycosides are antibiotics that are usually given through an IV for serious infections. These medications may be life saving but carry the potential for toxic effects to the inner ear.

Depends...: on underlying cause, of which there are a plethora. Don't sit on this. Get a definitive diagnosis and find out why you have it. If it is unilateral, ie one-sided, you need inner ear & brain imaging to look for asymmetric findings & evidence of possible demyelination. If it's symmetric, you may have just listened to too much loud music. Follow advice of audiologist, otolaryngologist & neurologist. ...Read more
Hearing loss/OM: You hear when sound waves jiggle your eardrum, which in turn moves the tiny bones in the middle ear. They then send signals to the inner ear, up to the brain and then you hear. In otitis media, there is often fluid or pressure problems in that middle ear space that makes the movement of those tiny little bones poor at best, so affects the transmission of the sound waves through the middle ear. ...Read more

I have moderate hearing loss w/bi lat. hearing aides. Which is better: learning sign language w/no hearing aides, or hearing aides w/no sign language?
My vote is for...: Hearing aids with no sign language is better than sign language with no hearing aids. With hearing aids, one can hear broadcasts, such as music or voice, and one can hear what other people say (because the vast majority of people don't know how to express themselves using sign language). Also, with hearing aids, one can hear sounds from machines (like cars) and from animals (such as barking). ...Read more
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.
