How many Cochlear Implants?
Cochlear's recent 30th year celebration started me wondering how many implantees there are and where they are.
How our ears work
It seems so simple. We have ears and we hear don't we! We never give much thought about the process and never have to think about hearing because it's something most of us have always taken for granted. But how do we actually hear?
How should we listen?
Hearing devices can be tailored to our individual needs but to take advantage of this we must be engaged with how we hear, what we hear and what we need changed or tweaked to allow us to get the most benefit from these.
How sudden deafness feels
Imagine waking up one morning and being deaf. Or perhaps having an accident and suddenly you can’t hear. Going deaf suddenly is a life changing experience.
How to choose a hearing aid
The hearing aid market is very confusing. There are many brands, many styles and lots of different functions. Then “will it work”, “will it fit”, “will I choose the right one”? This becomes even more difficult if you are choosing for a child. So how do you go about it?
How well do you hear from a distance?
I can hear sounds well when they are close by, but I can't understand when someone speaks from the next room
How will going deaf affect me?
Going deaf doesn’t mean your life has to change. You just need to find ways of coping with your loss so you can maintain the quality of your life.
Most of us have heard of tinnitus...but do you know what Hyperacusis is? Often these two things are suffered together and those with Cochlear Implants often report Hyperacusis
I didn’t understand bi-lateral hearing.
Before I had my 2nd cochlear implant I read all the brochures and asked other bi-lateral recipients to explain what the differences were between hearing with one ear and hearing with two ears. Most couldn’t easily articulate the differences but all said it was ‘better’. What did ‘better’ mean?
I'm not deaf!
Age-related deafness is gradual, often slow and at first not even noticed. Family, friends and work colleagues are usually the first to notice a difference.
