Hearing loss often occurs so gradually that the individual may not be aware of a problem. Early signs of hearing loss include:

  • Turning the TV or radio volume louder than other family members prefer.
  • Difficulty understanding speech in a background of noise, for instance in restaurants.
  • More difficulty hearing children and women than men.
  • Difficulty hearing in meetings.
  • Difficulty hearing at public speaking events.
  • Ringing in the ear(s) when no external sound is present.
  • Having things repeated frequently.
  • Difficulty hearing people "with low voices."

During this Nursing Grand Rounds Alyssa Flippo, Clinical Audiologist, will present a review of auditory anatomy and discuss the latest technology and strategies for dealing with hearing loss.
