An audiologist, like Dr Tanja Beeton, is a medical professional specialising in central and peripheral hearing impairments/disorders including deafness and hearing loss, tinnitus and balance system dysfunction/disorders. Apart from identifying, assessing, diagnosing, evaluating, treating and managing hearing related disorders or dysfunctions, audiologists are also able to proactively prevent hearing related damage through the use of correct hearing protection devices.
Audiologists rely on various testing methods and strategies to determine if an individual is able to hear within the normal range. Should any of these testing methods signal a problem in a patient's hearing, testing is extended to determine which portions of hearing are affected and how severe the problem is. After diagnosing a hearing disorder/dysfunction, audiologists will provide their patients with recommendations as to the best solution for their specific problem. These solutions include providing a patient with hearing amplification devices such as hearing aids, FM systems and accessories.
The ear is divided into three parts:
Each part has its own role to play in how we hear.
The outer ear 'catches' the sound and indicate directionality, the sound waves enter the ear canal and make the ear drum vibrate. This action moves the tiny hearing bones (ossicles - malleus, incus, stapes) in the middle ear. The last bone in this chain ‘knocks’ on the membrane window of the cochlea and makes the fluid in the cochlea move. The fluid movement then triggers a response in the hearing nerve.
