Abstract

Types of hearing impairment are classified into conductive, sensorineural, and mixed types. Conductive hearing loss is an impairment of the system that mechanically transmits sound vibration into the inner ear. Any problems that inhibit this transmission cause conductive loss. Treatments including medication and surgery that solve this problem readily improve hearing. Ear wax and various types of otitis can be treated with medication and surgery.
