Explanation Of The Results Of The Examination Of Conductive Deaf Ears?
I would like to ask, I check the lab, it turns out that there is a note on the right ear conductive HL What does that mean? Severe or not? Then what’s the solution? Thank you
Thank you for the question.
Conductive HL can be interpreted as conductive hearing loss or conductive deafness, and in your condition it is in the right ear. This is due to sound that cannot travel from the outside into the eardrum to the ears of the ear well, causing hearing loss. Conductive deafness can be caused by ear infections, allergies, frequent swimming, or accumulation of dirt in the ear.
Severe or not conductive deafness depends on the degree of deafness, which can be diagnosed using audiometry and other auditory functions. Not all conductive deafness is permanent, depending on the cause. If there is an infection, the infection must be treated for example with the use of antibiotics, and cleaning the ear when there is a buildup of dirt, or it could also use cochlear implants to help hearing through surgery. Therefore, you should consult further with an ENT specialist to adjust the results of the examination with your complaints, look for the cause of deafness and get further treatment.
Here are the things you can do to prevent worsening hearing loss:
Use ear protection equipment when you work in a noisy environment, and use earplugs when swimming and going to concerts. Routine control to check hearing function if you have the above risk factors (working in a noisy environment, often swimming, or going to a concert often). Reduces exposure to noise. Treat ear infections properly and thoroughly to avoid permanent hearing loss. Hopefully this information can help and hopefully your condition gradually improves.
