Acoustic Trauma

Acoustic trauma is a common type of hearing loss. The air pressure changes very suddenly at the end of an impact or explosion, usually from the ear. This also damages the delicate bones of the ear and its mechanism. It is also seen when you have to listen to high machine voice and extremely loud music for a long time.

How to diagnose?
Hearing loss after a blow from a nearby explosion or after a pulse coming from the ear is a common occurrence. Partial deafness may also be accompanied by a high-curved ear tinnitus. Your doctor will do a series of tests to determine what kind of hearing loss you have.

Treatment
The only effective treatment of severe hearing loss caused by trauma is hearing aids. Some methods may also help to adapt partial hearing; Among these are the attention to face expression and the reading of the lips.
