Glossary of Key Terms


Audiologist- A health care professional who is trained to evaluate hearing loss and related disorders, including balance (vestibular) disorders and tinnitus (ringing in the ears) and to rehabilitate individuals with hearing loss and related disorders. Audiologists who have completed the doctoral degree are called Doctors of Audiology.


Normal Hearing- Normal hearing is identified as the ability to hear sounds that occur at 20 decibels or less. Anything greater is identified as some degree of hearing loss.


Sensorineural Hearing Loss - (SNHL) is a type of hearing loss in which the root cause lies in the vestibulocochlear nerve (cranial nerve VIII), the inner ear, or central processing centers of the brain. This type of hearing loss is a result of damage to the hair cells within the cochlea. This damage often results from a history of noise exposure, but can also be contributed to aging.


Conductive Hearing Loss - (CHL) occurs when there is a problem conducting sound waves anywhere along the route through the outer ear, tympanic membrane (eardrum), or middle ear (ossicles). This type of hearing loss may occur in conjunction with sensorineural hearing loss or alone. This type of hearing loss is common among children and is often a result of ear wax, ear infections, or fluid behind the ear drum.


Mixed Hearing Loss - (MHL) is a combination of conductive and sensorineural hearing loss, which means there is damage in both the outer or middle ear and in the inner ear. This type of hearing loss ranges in severity from mild to profound.


Tinnitus - Ringing or buzzing in the ear that is often a result of hearing loss. Tinnitus may also be caused by noise exposure, head trauma, ear wax, or fluid build up in the ears.
