How do the elderly choose hearing aids?
With the increase of age, the hearing will gradually decline. In addition to the knowledge about hearing loss and ear disease prevention, detection, rehabilitation and treatment, the choice of appropriate hearing aids is also related to the hearing quality of the elderly.Choosing a hearing aid suitable for the elderly can make life more beautiful.

Experts pointed out that patients with hearing loss should first perform specialized hearing tests and fittings when choosing to wear hearing aids. At the same time, you must also pay attention to some issues including hearing and non-hearing:
First, the extent and type of hearing loss. Each type of hearing aid has its own range of adaptations, such as a wide range of hearing loss for behind-the-ear hearing aids, which is necessary for severe, deep deafness or high frequency steep drop hearing loss. Some patients with conductive deafness have suffered from multiple surgical procedures and the tympanic structure is destroyed. Bone conduction hearing aids may be considered.

Second, the patient's preferences and aesthetics. Patients have different types of hearing aids, which vary from person to person, and age seems to be closely related to aesthetic requirements. The younger the younger, the more the hearing aids are hidden and invisible.

Third, the degree of flexibility of the fingers, vision. In addition to hearing loss, many elderly people have poor eyesight and inflexible finger movements. It is difficult to play with very small hearing aids and install small batteries. Adjusting the volume of the behind-the-ear type is easier than that in the ear, but if the hearing aid is equipped with a remote control, there is no difference between the two. From the perspective of easy access, the in-ear hearing aid is slightly more convenient than the behind-the-ear type. The ear cavity, ear canal eardrum (or in-the-ear hearing aid) is much easier than the full ear cavity.

Fourth, the size of the ear canal. The behind-the-ear hearing aid can be equipped with audio input, FM interface and other devices, allowing directional microphone characteristics, and internal hearing aids are not easy to implement these functions.
During the wearing of the hearing aid, you should also pay attention to some minor problems such as ear comfort, echo and noise.
1. Wear a hearing aid should be comfortable and painless. If you have pain, you should contact your doctor. Do not take the time to adjust to this pain.

2. There should be no echo, vibration or hollow sound. Once this happens, the patient's hearing aid needs to be adjusted.

3. It is to avoid noise. The noise may be very large, but it should not cause discomfort. If the patient feels that the noise is too loud to reach a satisfactory volume, you need to contact the hearing aid franchise center immediately to re-test and adjust.
