As there will be a hearing testing clinic at the JFC on the 24th of February I thought I would review the three different types of hearing loss that can occur.

  • Sensori-neural hearing loss involves the inner ear, cochlea or the auditory nerve. It usually involves pathology of the inner ear.

  • Conductive hearing loss involves any cause that in some way limits the amount of external sound from gaining access to the inner ear (i.e. ear wax impactation, middle ear fluid or ossicular chain fixation (lack of movement of the small bones of the ear).

  • Mixed loss is a combination of conductive and sensori-neural hearing loss.

Hearing testing can aid in determining what type of hearing loss is occurring, a step towards finding a cause and ultimately perhaps, a solution. Best, Dianne
