Overcoming Deaf Ears Due To Hit?
Hello doctor, I want to ask if the deaf ear due to a hit can heal or not, how do I do it? Thank you
Hello Janah, thanks for the question.
The ear is an organ consisting of the outer ear, middle ear, and inner ear that functions for the process of hearing and balance. Disorders of the ear can be caused by trauma / loud impact to the ear, sound that is too loud, infection, drugs, or due to other diseases. This hearing loss is generally divided into two, namely sensorineural and conductive disorders. Sensorineural hearing loss is a hearing loss caused by damage to the inner ear or damage to the auditory nerve, whereas conductive hearing loss is an Akibatsuara hearing loss that cannot be passed on to the inner ear usually due to blockages such as ear wax, fluid buildup, or due to the drum broken ears. If you experience hearing loss due to injury / trauma you should immediately consult your ENT doctor, the doctor will conduct question and answer, physical examination, and supporting examinations if needed. The doctor may perform a hearing examination with the help of a tuning fork, with audiometry, and others. The doctor may also recommend laboratory tests, X-rays, CT scans, or MRI if necessary to ascertain the cause of the complaint so that treatment can be more appropriate. The treatment and outcome of this treatment process varies for each case depending on the cause and severity of the hearing loss experienced. Conductive hearing loss can generally return to normal if something that has blocked the ear can be removed, the cause has been resolved, or a torn eardrum has been repaired with a surgical procedure, while sensorineural hearing loss is generally permanent because most damage occurs in nerve cells, such as we know that nerve cells are cells that almost do not regenerate so that damage to the nerves causes permanent damage, treatment is only aimed at maximizing hearing function, can be helped by using hearing aids, cochlear implants, and others. Therefore you should consult a doctor so that the doctor can suggest the appropriate method of treatment.
Thus, hopefully useful.
