The medical conference “International Symposium on ENT Disorders and its Remedies- 2017, Singapore is well on its course to become one of the clinical conferences of the fiscal year 2017.” The whole BioLEAGUES Team is up on its toe to make it a premium event. An important in the context of the conference is that of cochlear implants.
A cochlear implant is an electronic medical device which replaces the function of the damaged inner ear. These cannot be completely called hearing aid, because hearing aids tend to make the sounds louder whereas cochlear implants bypass the damaged hair cells of the inner ear to provide signals to our brain. This implant is usually for children and adults with sensorineural disorders. That condition typically involves damage to tiny hair cells in a part of your inner ear called the cochlea. These hair cells usually pick up the vibrations of sounds and send them to the brain through the auditory nerve. When they’re damaged, sound can’t reach that nerve. A cochlear implant skips the damaged hair cells and sends signals to the auditory nerve directly.
How to Implant Cochlear in Hearing Loss Treatment
The devices have two parts. One part, the receiver-stimulator, is placed under your skin through surgery. The other, the speech processor, you wear behind your ear like a hearing aid. The outside part is slightly larger than a normal behind-the-ear hearing aid.
In this procedure, a surgeon puts a receiver under your skin behind your ear through a small cut. The receiver is connected to electrodes, which she/ he will put into a part of your inner ear called the cochlea. This surgery takes an hour or two, and you’ll probably go home the same day.
One to 2 weeks after the procedure, your doctor will fit your speech processor. You wear a microphone, which looks like a hearing aid, behind your ear. The processor may be connected to the microphone and worn at your ear. These processors offer different programs and telephone options.
When there are sounds around you, the microphone and processor pick them up and change them into electrical impulses. Then the transmitter sends these coded signals to the receiver under your skin. Next, the receiver delivers the signals to the electrodes inside your cochlea. These electrodes stimulate the auditory nerve, which carries the signals to the brain, where you recognize them as sound.
So, including this topic in our Otorhinolaryngology conference or ENT conference has got us worldwide responses and we assume that the presentations on this topic are surely going to help the society dealing with the inner ear disorders. It will be interesting to witness the techniques and treatments related to sensorineural disorders.
In this conference, professional from concerned field are going to share their views on International Symposium on ENT Disorders and its Remedies
