Conductive hearing loss occurs when sound is not conducted efficiently through the outer and middle ears, including the ear canal, eardrum, and the tiny bones, or ossicles, of the middle ear. Sensorineural hearing loss occurs when there is damage to the inner ear (cochlea) or to the nerve pathways from the inner ear (retrocochlear pathway of the acoustic nerve) to the brain. Sensorineural hearing loss not only involves a reduction in sound level, or ability to hear faint sounds, but also affects speech understanding or ability to hear clearly. A central auditory processing disorder (CAPD) occurs when auditory centers of the brain are affected by injury, disease, tumor, heredity or unknown causes.


Noise-induced hearing loss can result from a single loud noise such as a firecracker or gunshot. In addition to these devices our office is now utilizing the SoundCure Serenade, which was developed in association with the University of California Irvine. Conductive hearing loss usually involves a reduction in sound level, or the ability to hear faint sounds. Central auditory processing involves sound localization and lateralization, auditory discrimination, auditory pattern recognition, the temporal aspects of sounds, and the ability to deal with degraded and competing acoustic signals. Therefore, a deficiency in one or more of the above listed behaviors may constitute a central auditory processing disorder.


Other devices available for tinnitus retraining therapy include General Hearing Instruments Tranquil, ReSound Alera Live 9 and the Audifon Switch TRT.
CAPD is often associated with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
