I am no audiologist, although I did work with “Deaf Services” which is a Social Work initiative which did assessments for the profoundly deaf and hard of hearing, we did very small repairs to HA’s, changed tubing, we installed all types of enviromental equipment, phones, vibrating alarms, pagers, assistive listening devices, inductive loop systems and 1 to 1 work with folks whom were struggling with their loss, I am no expert but I have a fair knowledge about hearing loss. A BAHA is a “Bone Anchored Hearing Aid”… Very basically this works differently from normal hearing aids. A pin is anchored in the bone directly behind the ear, if your loss is conductive this means that something is obstructing the sound reaching the cochlear, the BAHA gets round this by sending the sound down the bone via the anchor/pin thereby circumventing the obstruction, this can be very effective, 3 of my friends have BAHA’s fitted and although they are not perfect, they are able to hear quite effectively, but any conventional aids would not be much use to them and most likely leave them profoundly deaf? Although the image of your audiogram is not very clear, I am assuming upper lines are for when you were tested on the bone, if so then you may be a candidate for 2 x BAHA’s? Although I do not wish to build your hopes up only to have them dashed!!! I would therefore inquire about your loss and find out for certain if it is CL or SNL and if it is CL I would endeavor to pursue BAHA’s… Good Luck Nafa. Cheers Kev.
