Conductive hearing loss


A conductive hearing loss is one that affects the structures that conduct the sound to the inner ear – this includes both the middle and outer ear. Common causes of conductive hearing loss are:

  • Wax build up
  • Fluid or infection in the middle ear
  • Ruptured eardrum
  • Damage to middle ear bones

Many cases of conductive hearing loss are treatable. Wax and fluid build-up are easily removed, an infection can be treated with antibiotics, a ruptured eardrum can be patched and damaged middle ear bones can be replaced.

Sensorineural hearing loss is the other type of hearing loss – it affects the inner ear.

If you think you may have a hearing loss then consult a medical professional as soon as possible.
