“Went to practice today and I only rang this morning. I have been nearly deaf in one ear for 6 weeks . This was after air travel, blocked Eustachian tubes and a plug of wax. Dr’s appointments x 2 over last two weeks, initially gave antibiotics and then suggested ear wax softening drops. Dr then said book for nurse to syringe ear. I did so but appointment was for 10 days ahead. Appointment due today with nurse and the surgery cancelled it. So I rang this practice, arrived had coffee, was taken into very clean surgery room. Ears examined with scope so I could see inside (gross !!) but both ears looked gross not just one as said by Dr. A few minutes later micro suction both ears, not painful and then followed by water (spa) wash in the worse ear. Then a miracle I could hear and when I spoke it was so loud. I cannot thank Adrian enough . Well worth coming to a very professional practice.”

Hearing Aid Users Experience Increased Quality Of Life

By | Blog, news

Surveys from Europe show that most hearing aid users experience increased quality of life. The surveys also found that people who use hearing aids tend to be less depressed, less exhausted in the evenings and that they sleep better than non-users.

80-93% of those who use hearing aids say that hearing aids improve their quality of life either regularly or occasionally. This is shown by studies from Germany, the United Kingdom, France and Switzerland.

In Switzerland, 93% of users say that hearing aids regularly or occasionally improve their quality of life. In France, it is 86%. In the United Kingdom and Germany, it is 81% and 80% respectively, which means that hearing aids regularly or occasionally improve their quality of life.

When asked about the positive impacts using hearing aids can have, the hearing aid users pointed to improvements in communication effectiveness, participating in group activities, relationships at home and sense of safety.

Less depressed
The surveys show that the hearing aid users tend to be less depressed than the hearing impaired non-users.

Less exhausted in the evenings
Compared to hearing aid non-owners with significant hearing loss, hearing aid users in the surveys generally felt less exhausted in the evenings.

Hearing aid users tend to sleep better
The surveys also found that people who use hearing aids tend to sleep better than non-users. More hearing aid users answered “Yes” to the question “Are you generally satisfied with the quality of your sleep?” than the non-users in the survey with the most significant hearing losses.

Don’t make fun of hearing aids
In the surveys, 89% of the hearing aid owners said that they don’t think people make fun of them because of their hearing aids. This is compared to 35% of those with hearing loss who do not use hearing aids who felt people make fun of them because of their hearing loss.

Four EuroTrak surveys
The figures come from four EuroTrak surveys carried out in 2015 by EHIMA (European Hearing Instrument Manufactures Association) in Germany, the United Kingdom, France and Switzerland.

In each country, between 14,000 and 15,000 people participated in the survey. EHIMA’s EuroTrak surveys were carried out in cooperation with the Swiss analysis firm Anovum.
