Tinnitus Evaluation and Management
Many individuals complain of a buzzing or ringing sound being present in their ears. This type of constant being heard by these individuals is called tinnitus. Tinnitus may be perceived as buzzing, ringing, hissing, pulsatile, whistling etc. Each person may have different types of tinnitus and the same person might have different types of tinnitus perception in his own two ears.
Assessing the type of tinnitus early is of high importance because it might later lead to significant problems in carrying out daily life activities as well as at work place. Using audiometric techniques, it is possible to identify the frequency, type, and the loudness of tinnitus which is essential to chart out the rehabilitation method.
