Sudden Deafness

Sudden deafness is a sudden hearing loss can happen any time now or even in a period of three days. If a person suffers a sudden hearing loss should immediately go to the otolaryngologist, since it is considered a medical emergency. The diagnosis is established by performing a complete otologic examination, audiometry and acumetría. Sometimes it is necessary to perform additional tests such as MRI to view structures involved in hearing. It is necessary to institute treatment as soon as possible to attempt a complete recovery of hearing. There is a small percentage of people who suffer a deadweight loss of hearing.
