Physiogenic Hearing Impairment in Adults

Abstract

Expansion and development in the field of audiology during the last decade have been vast. The availability of improved diagnostic and remedial procedures has broadened the range of benefits and resources now employed for the auditorily impaired. Many of the advances in audiology are spinoffs from allied fields. From medicine, otologic surgeons developed middle ear reconstruction techniques that often restore hearing to normal acuity. Medical treatment using improved antibiotics and preventative otologic procedures have also resulted in notable contributions. Innovations in engineering and electronics are responsible for smaller, more efficient, and more flexible amplification devices worn as individual or group hearing aids. Computer technology has become the basis for several audiological procedures. The audiologist’s hearing test battery contains new diagnostic tests, many based on modern technological advances. Hence, in the past decade, significant improvements have occurred in hearing assessment, prevention, aural rehabilitation, and medical and surgical restoration. Furthermore, there have been noteworthy advances in educational management and federal legislation mandating rehabilitative services. This chapter will attempt to inform the reader of the current status of audiometry.
