Your ear health is as important as any other chronic illness. If you suspect a hearing impairment, it’s best to get a hearing aid evaluation by a health care professional. Early diagnosis helps you to get treatment on time and overcome your difficulty. With a successful hearing aid evaluation, you will be able to live life to the fullest.
Seeking the treatment/evaluation for your hearing is a multi-step process. The health care professional needs to take several steps to first determine the problem and provide quality care to the patients. With the right guidance, the patient will pick the right aid and lead a comfortable lifestyle.
Here are few steps that you can follow to make your hearing evaluation successful
Consult a hearing care professional and discuss the concerns/trouble you might be facing. With advances in technology, you can always find a reliable treatment option for your ailments.
To know whether you qualify for a hearing aid, you must go through a step-by-step process.
The HCP (Hearing Care Professional) will assess your case and test your hearing to determine the issue. He/she will thoroughly analyze your medical history, your symptoms, and your lifestyle. In order to have a successful evaluation, it’s imperative that both parties exchange open-ended questions before beginning the test.
You will undergo a non-invasive hearing test. This test will help the HCP (Hearing Care Professional) determine the level of hearing loss and the type of treatment you require. This test will also be helpful to know whether it affected both of your ears and to what degree. Typically, an audiogram is used to perform a hearing test.
To assess your hearing further, the HCP (Hearing Care Professional) may suggest speech or bone conduction test additionally.
The result of the tests will give you clarity whether you need a hearing aid and the support you need to overcome your hearing loss.
3. Hearing Aid
Depending on the frequency of hearing loss, there are multiple hearing aids available to choose from. From functionality to style, there has been a huge advancement in these devices. The HCP (Hearing Care Professional) will explain the features of different models and suggest you the one which is most compatible with your lifestyle.
Ensure that you share your lifestyle and needs during the consultation so that the HCP (Hearing Care Professional) recommends the best suitable model to you. There are even mobile compatible hearing aids available. So, you really have a lot of options that can go in line with your preferences.
4. Hearing Aid Fitting
Finally, after a successful evaluation, you can schedule an appointment for the fourth and final step i.e., fitting of your hearing aid. After you have chosen a device, you can get the device customized to fit your ear. We will call you for another visit to do the fitting along with the corresponding device parts.
Upon your trial, you can check the adjustments and fitting carefully. If you have any concerns regarding the settings or fitting, you can take the help of your HCP (Hearing Care Professional) to make the necessary adaptations.
Since this practice is to improve your hearing experience, ask away any concerns. It’s absolutely okay to take some time to adapt to the hearing device in real-life environment. Sooner, you will begin experiencing an improvised hearing which can be truly a life-changing experience.
