HEARING TEST KEYNSHAM HEARING CENTRE. BATH/BRISTOL
The Hearing Test at Keynsham Hearing Centre Bristol/Bath video explains about the hearing test procedure that we conduct at Keynsham Hearing Centre. The whole procedure will only take half an hour, after which we will be able to determine if you have hearing loss and recommend the appropriate course of action to take.
You may not think you have wax but know there is something going on with your ears! If this is the case contact the practice for an Ear Check appointment.
Following an initial discussion regarding your health and hearing, we begin by examining your ears using a fibre optic camera. The camera sits just at the entrance of the ear, and enables both you and the audiologist to view your ear canal and ear drum on a large screen. If wax is present, this will removed.
If there is no wax or debris present in the canal, there may be other tell-tale signs of what the problem is. We will perform a Tympanogram, which measures whether the mechanical function of the ear drum and middle ear cavity are working normally. This also highlights if you are suffering from any form of Eustachian tube dysfunction which is common. These results usually dictate the best next step.
If you have any referable symptoms or require antibiotic treatment, we will write to your GP with the outcome of your appointment.
Hello my name is Steven Neal, Keynsham Hearing Centre. It’s been suggested that we make a small film to educate people to a screen test. An opportunity to phone up a hearing centre and find out if you actually have a hearing loss. So this way, by booking in we can have half an hour of your time.
We take information, what we call case history. We are then able to do a four frequency test and that will then show us on screen your sort of levels of hearing and that way we can talk about various hearing instruments, as we refer to them. An awful lot of people refer to them as hearing aids, the industry tends to call them hearing instruments.
But we will also need to go through a visual inspection of your ears called otoscopy, again that can be done manually. We can also do video otoscopy here, whereby we can show you on screen what’s happening in your ears.
Then having done the screening tests we can then talk through what you want to do from there. Whether you want a full test or whether you feel your levels are ok.
