Hearing Loss

How to protect residual hearing after hearing loss?


Among the hearing-impaired people, there are fewer people with complete loss, and most of them still have a part of their hearing. This part is called residual hearing. Residual hearing is a favorable condition for hearing aids to play a compensatory role. However, the situation is quite complicated due to the different causes, time of onset, and degree of residual hearing. Residual hearing is very important for a deaf patient. If there is no residual hearing, it is equivalent to total deafness, and the patient cannot hear outside sounds. Even wearing hearing aids is useless (unless a cochlear implant is implanted). Although people who are totally deaf can gain hearing by implanting cochlear implants, the effect of cochlear implants is still not as good as that of residual hearing. So how to protect residual hearing after hearing loss?
