Mixed hearing loss transpires when you go through both conductive hearing loss and sensorineural hearing loss. In simpler words, when both your inner and outer ear are damaged, then the hearing loss is termed “Mixed Hearing Loss.”
The person’s ability to hear clearly and soundly gets alleviated as the impairment in the outer ear becomes ineffective to send the neural impulse to the inner ear. This further result in a dearth of auditory signals that is obligatory to be reached to the brain for interpretation and the brain fails to respond to the coming stimulations.
The inner ear loss or sensorineural component is treated as a permanent loss. Whereas conductive hearing or outer ear loss can be reserved in most of the conditions. The mixed hearing loss could be either unilateral or bilateral, depending upon your austerity of the situation.
The sounds are experienced as soft in volume and cumbersome to interpret as two main parts of the ear are out of function. Mixed hearing loss can ward off any of the levels of hearing loss.
