Cochlear Implantation at CARE
 

A cochlear implant is a highly advanced medical device and the only technology that is capable of functionally restoring hearing in children and adults with severe to profound hearing loss.

Cochlear implants provide an effective alternative to those who are not getting benefit using hearing aids. They don’t use amplification instead, they bypass the damaged part of the ear and use electrical stimulation to enable hearing.

A cochlear implant is surgically implanted under the skin and soft tissues, on the skull bone behind the ear and the electrode array will be inserted into the cochlea (inner ear) to improve hearing capabilities of someone with limited or no hearing.

How It Works 
The cochlear is comprised of both internal and external components. The internal and external portions work together to change sound into electrical signals that are sent to the hearing nerve.
  •  Sound is received by the microphone
  •  Sound is transmitted from the microphone to the speech processor which digitalizes the sound into coded signals.
  •  Coded signals are then sent to transmitter which sends across the skin into the internal implant and convert it into electrical signals.
  •  The signals are then sent to electrodes to stimulate the remains of hearing through the cochlear nerve and into the hearing centre in the brain.
Procedure and Recovery

These are the steps taken to fully and successfully execute a cochlear implant

Implantation

Surgery is required to implant the internal components. The receiver / stimulator assembly is placed on the temporal bone and the electrodes are inserted into the cochlea, which in turn directly stimulates the hearing nerve. The implantation procedure usually takes about one and half to two hours.

Switch on and Mapping 

After the incision is healed, the programming of the speech processor will be carried out and the external parts of the implant will be hooked up and switch on the implant will takes place. The patient will begin to hear then.

Auditory Verbal Therapy 

Children who are not exposed to the hearing world must undergo extensive exercises to improve their speech, language and hearing skills.

Progress of the relationship between the device and user is entirely dependent on the work that goes into it. The more one practices, the better they hear. As you go about your day and listen to the sounds around you, you are training yourself to hear with your cochlear implant. You can help the process along with training and rehabilitative exercises. Early diagnosis of hearing loss is essential to identify the children born and to fit them with cochlear implants to prevent speech and language delay. Younger children often make great progress working with auditory verbal  therapists and other hearing professionals trained to help develop listening skills.

At the same time children and adults who have developed speech and lost hearing at later stage in life due to various causes are also the best beneficiaries of cochlear implant surgery to restore their hearing quickly and to return to normal life.
