Mild to Moderate Conductive Hearing Loss in the Right Ear
This audiogram shows a mild to moderate conductive hearing loss.
- Mild to moderate means that the hearing loss can range from 15dB to 70dB. This means that the quietest sounds the child can hear range between 15 and 70 dB.
- Conductive hearing loss is when sound can't reach the inner ear.
If bone conduction thresholds are higher than air conduction thresholds, this could mean that something is not working right in the middle or outer ear.
- One of the most common causes for conductive hearing loss is liquid behind the eardrum. This is often caused by ear infections.
