A cholesteatoma is a skin growth that occurs in an abnormal location, the middle ear behind the eardrum. Cholesteatoma is a serious but treatable ear condition which can only be diagnosed by medical examination. Otitis media is the inflammation of the middle ear and occurs most commonly during the winter and early spring months. Remember, without proper treatment, damage from an ear infection can cause chronic or permanent hearing loss. Earwax is healthy in normal amounts and serves to coat the skin of the ear canal where it acts as a temporary water repellent.
Most of the time the ear canals are self-cleaning; that is, there is a slow and orderly migration of ear canal skin from the eardrum to the ear opening. When cerumen is removed from the ear, the physician uses sucion, a cerumen spoon, or delicate forceps to do so.
A perforated eardrum is a hole or rupture in the eardrum, a thin membrane that separates the ear canal and the middle ear. Middle ear infections may cause pain, hearing loss, and spontaneous rupture (tear) of the ear-drum resulting in a perforation.
On rare occasions a small hole may remain in the eardrum after a previously placed PE tube (pressure equalizing) either falls out or is removed by the physician. Most eardrum perforations heal spontaneously within weeks after rupture, although some may take up to several months.
The most common symptoms of swimmer’s ear are mild to moderate pain that is aggravated by tugging on the auricle and an itchy ear.
WARNING: If you already have an ear infection, or if you have ever had a perforated or otherwise injured eardrum, or ear surgery, you should consult an ear, nose, and throat specialist before you go swimming and before you use any type of ear drops. The tympanogram is a test that measures how easily the eardrum vibrates back and forth and and what pressure the vibration is the easiest. The ABR is a special hearing test that can be used to track the nerve signals arising in the inner ear as they travel through the hearing nerve (called the auditory nerve) to the region of the brain responsible for hearing. The ABR can also be used on small infants since it requires no conscious response from the person being tested. The ENG (short for electronystagmogram) is actually not a hearing test but rather a special test of the balance mechanism of the inner ear. These funnel through the ear opening, down the ear, canal, and strike your eardrum, causing it to vibrate.
It is usually due to repeated infection, which causes an ingrowth of the skin of the eardrum. Persisting earache, ear drainage, ear pressure, hearing loss, dizziness, or facial muscle weakness signals the need for evaluation by an otolaryngologist-head and neck surgeon. Old earwax is constantly being transported from the ear canal to the ear opening where it usually dries, flakes, and falls out. However, if you want to clean your ears, you can wash the external ear with a cloth over a finger, but do not insert anything into the ear canal. It typically occurs in swimmers, but the since the cause of the infection is water trapped in the ear canal, bathing or showering may also cause this common infection.
If you do not know if you have or ever had a perforated, punctured, ruptured, or otherwise injured eardrum, ask your ear doctor. This graph shows the amount of hearing loss expressed in units called decibels at different sound frequencies (also called Hertz). The middle ear is normally filled with air at a pressure equal to the surrounding atmosphere. A special probe is placed up against the ear canal, like an ear plug, and the equipment automatically makes the measurements. The test is useful because it can tell us where along that path the hearing loss has occurred. The test involves running a cool liquid and then a warm liquid through the ear canal (it is usually done through a small tube so the ear itself remains dry). The vibrations are passed to the small bones of the middle ear, which transmit them to the hearing nerve in the inner ear. Cholesteatomas often take the form of a cyst or pouch that sheds layers of old skin that builds up inside the ear. The middle ear is connected to the nose by the eustachian tube, which equalizes pressure in the middle ear. When water is trapped in the ear canal, bacteria that normally inhabit the skin and ear canal multiply, causing infection and irritation of the ear canal.
Simple tests, such as ones done in many schools, may be useful for screening, but a careful audiogram is necessary for accurate diagnosis of most hearing problems. If the middle ear is filled with fluid, the eardrum will not vibrate properly and the tympanogram will be flat. For example, the ABR is often used for individuals with a sensorineural (nerve) loss in just one ear.


Special electrodes automatically record the nerve signal; the patient can even be asleep during the test. This change in temperature stimulates the inner ear which in turn causes rapid reflex movements of the eyes. Here, the vibrations become nerve impulses and go directly to the brain, which interprets the impulses as sound (music, voice, a car horn, etc.).
Over time, the cholesteatoma can increase in size and destroy the surrounding delicate bones of the middle ear. If the middle ear is filled with air but at a higher or lower pressure than the surrounding atmosphere, the tympanogram will be shifted in its position. This movements are recorded, and from these we can get information about how well this balance mechanism is functioning.
Hearing loss, dizziness, and facial muscle paralysis are rare but can result from continued cholesteatoma growth. If the ABR is normal along that region of the path, the chances of having this tumor are quite small. She has great conformation, exceptional movement and is the happiest dog I have ever owned.
Her job as a therapy dog for an 83 yr old woman that had is stroke is one she takes very seriously. We continually have Home Health therapists in daily and she greets each of them then quietly goes to her spot to watch everything that goes on. She accompanies me into the chicken coop and is great with the chickens as well as with her cat ( yes her cat that she found in a ditch). She passed her Herding Instinct testing at 5 months of age and now working on her Canine Good Citizen certification. I have owned and worked with many breeds of dogs and Arya is by far one of the most intelligent, willing and trainable. I would totally recommend PATCHWORK SHEPHERDS and have friends now that have bought puppies from here as well and all of them are as wonderful as Arya. A He said, "she is really a love," and described her gentleness and cuddling even from the get-go.
A She is very playful with her 'brothers' (two older choc labs), but is extremely responsive to me and is my 'watcher.' A No matter where I am, she is A watching over me. A When we settle in the evening to watch a movie, she will quietly peruse the house, coming back to my side after she has checked everything out. A If she could, she would hop up on my lap and sit there, just as she did when she was a fuzz-ball pup! It was serendipity that brought you all the way over the mountains on Monday so we could get her!Also a couple of short videos if you're interested.
I was just getting to the serious stage ofshopping for a black coated GSD to raise for my own pet and protection dogwhen my nephew T.J. BlackJack (Zoey x Drake 2009) is doing fine, being a good boy that loves to be around us (Right now he is under my desk sleeping at my feet). We had many family gattering and other partys and he is always good around people in the house.
When my kid gets around to it she will send you pictures, sorry Ia€™m not the computer savvy one. Thank you again for Morgan, she is a gem, here is her 9 week picture (the ear did come down). I think he will excell, and it will be good for the boys to learn how to deal with him (other than play). We purchased Pruett (black collar male from Zoey x Doc August '08 litter) and were so thrilled with him that we had to get another! A few weeks later we welcomed Daphne (hot pink collar female from Anna x Doc August '08 litter) into our lives.
He quickly learns new commands and we are currently practicing, "seek", where we will tell him to "sit and stay" and then we go hide his ball and tell him to "seek" and he finds it. She loves to play in the snow!!She has been doing really well in the house, she is a very quick learner. I know the "puppy stage" lasts for awhile, but if it continues to go as smoothly as it has been going, it will definitely be a breeze. She loves to play fetch and she is really good at it, which is surprising to me for her age. She is such a sweet puppy, she is always trying to make friends with all the animals she meets, most which unfortunately haven't been too fond of her. Miah is starting to be a little friendly, not much, but like I said, Tymber is a persistant little pup and I believe that eventually they will be pals. We will be taking her on her second fishing trip tomorrow, which is always very exciting for us. She loves playing with any kind of plants and grass- we are hoping she grows out of that stage for our landscape's sake!


Anywho, I just wanted to let you know what a great pup she is and how much Tyler and myself enjoy having her. He is everythingA I could have ever hoped for in a German Shepherd and I am really happy that I got him. Several people in our training class have commented on his lovely conformation as he trots across the room while playing with the other pups.
He's a great dog!A Anyway, hope all is well in your part of the world and that you are enjoying the holiday season. Although I had some concerns on how Gracie would react, from the first walk that we did on the way home from Patchwork, she has been wonderful. Already they play together, with Gracie laying down so that she is on Argus' level, letting him crawl all over her. He already knows his name, figured out how to negotiate the step up the deck, and how to run from me when he picks up something I don't want him to have.
He follows us around from room to room and always sleeps next to us when we are in the room. I do have a crate and have used it but not very much, mostly I just watch him and when I catch that certain look I just take him out and tell him to go potty.
When I was in shop he would play under my bench and when he was tired he would sleep under my stool. He and Gracie had a good time exploring and finding just about every kind of poop there is out there. Everyone that meets her is in awe of not only her beauty and structure, but even more so of her super sweet and willing disposition.A  I cannot say enough about her. She is very gentle, smart, intelligent, super athletic, and just wants to please and love everyone.A  She loves to crawl into our laps and pretend she is a tiny lap dog. A His big brother Jackson and he are the best of buds, they have really bonded into something special! A Also, wea€™d like to thank you for letting us come out and see him when he was a puppy, and for giving us little updates on how he was doing when he was just a lila€™ guy.A  (10lbs when we picked him up to take him home seems little compared to the size he is now! After working for a vet for more then 10 years my husband had to really talk me into getting a GSD. She has gone though a basic and advanced off leash obediance class and this comming year brings more fun with tracking and agility classes signed up.
We are now thinking of getting her a little brother and look forward to coming out to visit and meet more parents.
He is adapting quickly to his new home on Orcas Island, WA A and after 3 days already knows his new name. We have had him for two days now and he has already learned his name, learned how to come when called, walks great on a leash, has learned the command "gentle" for when he takes things with his mouth, is completely potty trained and sleeps all night long in his crate with no problems. We have never seen such a loving, well behaved, intelligent puppy before and we feel so lucky that he is now a part of our family. John and I were so pleased to see the safety measures that you take prior to letting anyone be near or handle any of the puppies.
Because of your loving care for your dogs we now have two of the greatest puppies that anyone could ever ask for in life! I am grateful for the time that we were able to spend with the puppies getting to know each and every one of them.
You are wonderful about keeping everyone informed through your website just as you did while we were waiting to be able to take the Sebastian and Kasia home.
We were also very impressed that you were so willing to let us come visit and you even encouraged us to do so.
We thoroughly appreciate that you allowed us to be a part of the puppies lives even before they were in their new home. Through your attentive behavior to each and every one of your puppies we new the silly things they did, what they liked to play with all the way down to their little itchy spot that they liked to have scratched. Because of all your love and attention we have two beautiful, healthy puppies that we will get to love for years to come.A A Thank you so much for our beautiful puppies! A  I got hopeful when I found your pages, with your dog Penny, who reminded me so much of our Isis, who was a beautiful, athletic,and loving black and red blanket pattern longcoat. You DID say on your page that your goal was to find the right dog for people, right down to the color. The way you described the parents of different litters, and later the pups themselves, was exactly right.A  Patiently, you discussed all the little characteristics of each pup in a way that just about made up for our never being able to actually see the pups in person or hold them in our arms.
Pashi learned every trick all of my other dogs know in one 10 minute session at age 11 weeks, and never forgot them.A  She and Itta (9 weeks) both sit at the door automatically now, better than any of our other dogs who have been working on it for ages.
