Hearing Problems

Hearing loss can be partial or complete. It is termed profound deafness. In the partial hearing loss, the intensity of the sound needs to be raised for an individual to hear. The three types of hearing loss are conductive, sensorineural, and mixed. In conductive hearing loss, the sounds fail to transfer from the outer to the inner ear. Problems with the auditory nerve, cochlea, brain, and inner ear cause sensorineural hearing loss. Mixed hearing loss involves both conductive and sensorineural hearing losses.
