Audiometry is a test to assess hearing in each ear in order to determine whether a person hears well. The human ear can hear sounds with frequencies Audiometry is a test to assess hearing in each ear in order to determine whether a person hears well. The human ear can hear sounds with frequencies between 20 and 20,000 hertz. The test is divided into tonal and verbal audiometry. Audiometry in the air and bone conduction, in both cases involves the exploration of both ears separately, with the patient inside a soundproof booth and sealed evaluated. In the air audiometry, the individual should be placed headphones and then, the specialist plays a series of sounds high to low volume until they are inaudible. The last perceived sound determines the hearing threshold, that is to say, to what intensity is able to hear the patient at a given frequency. The inspection of bone conduction, a vibrator behind the patient's ear in the mastoid, through which receives the sound is placed. Speech audiometry is also performed with the patient in a booth and headphones, but instead of words emit sounds at different volume, which must be repeated exactly. The test takes about twenty minutes and the results are shown in a graph (audiogram). Comparison of the data obtained in the air and bone scans can know which part of the hearing aid causes hearing impairment (deafness) and what is the extent of the loss. ...
Deafness is hard of hearing or total inability to use this. If the loss is partial hearing loss is called if the total deafness.

The middle ear surgery is the surgical set to treat problems in the tympanic membrane, the ossicles articulated (hammer, anvil and stirrup) and the mastoid air cells (cavities of the temporal bone) interventions. There are two main groups of surgical procedures: Tympanoplasty and mastoidectomy. Tympanoplasty encompasses ossiculoplasty (repair of bones) and myringoplasty (closing holes in the eardrum). To perform this type of surgery, you enter the middle ear through a cut behind the ear or inside the ear canal and the relevant procedures are performed, depending on the injury presented by the patient. Intervention may include removing any infection or dead tissue in the eardrum to place a graft to repair a perforation in the tympanic membrane or put a prosthesis to replace a damaged bone. Tympanoplasty is indicated in cases of large perforations of the eardrum or middle ear infections, including chronic or acute otitis media, which can not be cured with antibiotics. The masteidoctomía is an operation to remove the air-filled cavities of the skull located behind the ear (temporal bone), performed to treat infections of the mastoid portion of the skull that complications of otitis media, abnormal bone growths, cholesteatoma ( cyst skin cells in the middle ear) or to place cochlear implants. ...
Radiofrequency nasal surgery is a surgical procedure that involves the use of energy at low power and low temperature to repair certain diseases of the nasal passages, especially the turbinate hypertrophy which causes nasal blockage. The surgery is performed under local anesthesia and usually lasts between five and fifteen minutes, tops. This technique begins by inserting a thin radiofrequency probe through the nostrils. The radiofrequency energy helps reduce the size of the turbinates without causing injury to the nasal mucosa, as it is applied by a cold electrodes. After surgery, the patient will take a nasal packing for a day at least. Turbinate hypertrophy can also be treated with endoscopic surgery or laser surgery. ...
The throat and larynx cancer is a malignant tumor that affects the cells of the larynx where the vocal cords are located. The snuff and alcohol are the two main causes of the development of this disease. Depending on your location can be classified in supraglottic tumor ( above the glottis ), glottic and subglottic tumor tumor ( below the glottis ). Symptoms of throat cancer are often changes in voice, difficulty breathing and swallowing, hoarseness, cough, swelling and pain in the neck or neck expectoration. Early detection of disease is essential to increase the life expectancy of patients. The treatment is based on the extirpation of the tumor, while avoiding its extension to other parts of the body. Depending on the case, surgery may involve partial or total removal of the vocal cords, and sometimes you can choose one by treatment with radiotherapy and chemotherapy. ...
Tympanometry is a test to evaluate the functioning of the middle ear and tympanic membrane. The test involves inserting a device into the outer ear to achieve a tight seal. Then the specialist causes a change in air pressure inside the atrial cavity to check the mobility of the eardrum and to see how the ear reacts to sound and pressure changes. During the test, the patient can hear very loud sound and may notice discomfort because of the probe. The results are plotted on a graph called tympanogram. This technique is used to detect alterations in the middle ear, the tympanic perforation, infectious otitis, tumors, bone diseases Driving middle ear or birth defects, among others. ...
