As you grow older, it becomes increasingly important to take care of your health. From regular visits to the dentist, avoiding fast food and checking your cholesterol to regular hearing tests, making sure your health is in tip-top shape should be an ongoing top priority.
Hearing tests can pick up on problems before they become major issues. It is important to get their hearing checked often. As parents, adults, and healthcare professionals, it can be virtually impossible to pick up on hearing-related problems just by watching them. If the source of any hearing problem is identified early, then your hearing specialist can work with you to overcome the problem before your hearing deteriorates further.
At our Beltone Hearing Center, we have a number of tools that are used to test hearing. The most common hearing tests use a series of high-pitched and low-pitched beeps to determine whether the patient can hear the sounds.
Human speech is made of many different sounds. We have sounds that are low-pitched and sounds that are high-pitched. Some of the consonants, for example, have very high pitches. It is important to recognize whether a patient is missing a certain spectrum of hearing before a treatment plan can be developed.
If you are only able to hear parts of sounds, then they will not be able to hear what is being said to them. This can be the difference between being able to communicate well and struggling.
The audiologists at Chenault House of Hearing are very sympathetic and will make sure that the right tests and procedures are followed during your evaluation.
