[Modern hearing aid treatment].

[Article in German]


Sufficiently good hearing is the most important prerequisite for speech communications between human beings and is crucial for the quality of human life. For this reason, provision of hearing aid is a priority task of the ENT-physician in all cases of hearing impairement which are unimproveable. The following principles must be observed: when it is necessary to provide a hearing aid, this should be done as early as possible, even in monauricular hearing loss. In binauricular hearing loss, hearing aids should be provided for both ears whenever possible and always with the objective of "optimal" care. The organization of hearing aid provision, which has proved very effective in Germany, is explained. Basic types of modern hearing aids are described and a review is given on the technical possibilities of modern hearing aids in solving problems relating to disturbances of hearing.
