Transcript

  • 1. What is a cochlear implant?
  • 2. Not all people with hearing loss havethe potential to benefit from hearingaid use; some may require the use of a cochlear implant.
  • 3. This is an electronic device implantedunder the skin behind the ear and in the organ of hearing (cochlea).
  • 4. The implant consists of twoparts, a behind-the-ear portion and internal components.
  • 5. The portion that sits behind the earcontains a microphone for picking up sound, a processor to process theincoming sound, and a transmitter tosend the sound signal to the internal components.
  • 6. The internal portion receives the sound information and sends it to the electrodes implanted in the cochlea. Electric signals stimulate availablehearing nerve fibers. The signal is sent to the brain and sound is heard!
  • 7. While the implant does provide soundstimulation, it is not a hearing aid and doesnot work in the same way. Damaged cells in the cochlea are bypassed, and incomingsound is coded into electrical impulses that stimulate the hearing nerve.
  • 8. The choice to pursue this option is a serious one, since major surgery andcosts are involved. Regaining sound in asilent environment, however, is precious and priceless.
