SSM Week 1 (2)
Yesterday we visited the Hearing Aid clinic and sat in on a session with the Audiologist. Since he had two Audiometry students in, who have clinical exams coming up, he let them practice their examination techniques on us to give us an idea of the procedures and how they feel for a patient.
Shown here are my charts for my right ear audiometry, both ear volumes and pressures (indicating that my hearing is normal and that I have un-perforated ear drums). They also took a mould from which a hearing aid ear mould could be made. This is done by injecting blue silicon into the ear canal them leaving it to harden. The picture does not do this wonderful toy any justice.
