Charitable hearing aid work: ENT for Zambia

Martin Zambia 2About our efforts

We do our best to make a huge impact to peoples' lives by providing the latest technological advances to our patients, be that ear wax microsuction treatments, tinnitus treatments or our high-tech hearing devices that have all sorts of fancy features associated with them.

However, not everyone in the world has a chance to take advantage of these. A hearing device that allows a patient a simple amplification may seem pretty old in comparison to the most recent offering and while it may not be close in terms of quality, it will still go a long way to giving people back their hearing who couldn't necessarily afford a new device.

Therefore, it is saddening to realise that these devices are often discarded into junk boxes and cupboards around the UK when they have the potential to change peoples' lives. We operate a policy that provides all hearing aid purchasers £100 off when they trade in their old hearing aids.

We then take these 2nd hand hearing aids and have them re-conditioned allowing them to be re-used. By engaging in Charitable hearing aid work we can help the lives of others less fortunate. We gather the re-conditioned hearings aids together alongside others that have been donated by our hearing aid partners and take them to Zambia on bi-annual trips to dispense to those who need them most. We provide a great deal of support for the charity ENT for Zambia and have treated hundreds of people for hearing impairment.

How you can get involved in Charitable hearing aid work

Although we welcome you to get involved in the charity, we understand that there are only a limited number of audiologists who will get involved.

We believe that the best way for you to help out is to donate old hearing devices that you may have lying around, encourage friends to donate theirs and to take advantage of our trade-in offer so that you can upgrade your own sound while helping out at the same time.

How Your Ear Works

Causes of Tinnitus

It may not always be possible to identify what’s causing tinnitus.

However, tinnitus is often initiated by hearing loss. Causes of hearing loss can be varied. Some of the main causes are described below.

How Your Ear Works

Inner Ear Damage

Tinnitus is often related to damage that occurs inside the inner ear.

Sounds pass from the outer ear through the middle ear to the inner ear, which contains the cochlea and auditory nerve. The cochlea is a coiled, spiral tube with a large number of sensitive hair cells. The auditory nerve transmits sounds to the brain.

If part of the cochlea is damaged, it will stop sending information to parts of your brain. These areas of the brain will then actively ‘seek out’ signals from parts of the cochlea that still work. These signals are over-represented in the brain and cause the sounds of tinnitus.

In older people, tinnitus is often caused by natural hearing loss, which makes the hearing nerves less sensitive. In younger people, tinnitus can sometimes occur as a result of hearing damage caused by excessive noise.

Other Causes

As well as natural hearing loss and inner ear damage, there are several other possible causes of tinnitus. These include:

  • A build-up of earwax that blocks the ear
  • middle ear infection (otitis media)
  • Glue ear (otitis media with infusion)
  • Otosclerosis – an inherited condition where an abnormal bone growth in the middle ear causes hearing loss
  • Ménière’s disease – a condition that affects part of the inner ear known as the labyrinth and causes balance problems
  • Anaemia – a reduced number of red blood cells that can sometimes cause the blood to thin and circulate so rapidly that it produces a sound
  • perforated eardrum

Less Common Causes of Tinnitus

Less commonly, tinnitus may also develop as a result of:

  • A head injury
  • Exposure to sudden or very loud noise, such as an explosion or gunfire
  • Acoustic neuroma – a rare, non-cancerous growth that affects the hearing nerve in the inner ear
  • Adverse reactions to certain medications, such as antibiotics, diuretics, quinine and
  • Aspirin (this is more likely to occur when the recommended dosage is exceeded)
  • Solvent abuse, drug misuse and alcohol misuse
  • High blood pressure (hypertension) and narrowing of the arteries (atherosclerosis)
  • An overactive thyroid gland (hyperthyroidism)
  • Paget’s disease – where the normal cycle of bone renewal and repair is disrupted
  • Stress isn’t a direct cause of tinnitus but it can sometimes make it worse.

The Hearing Clinic UK helped me identify why I was having so much trouble hearing the television. I cant believe I’ve lived with this for so long when it was so easy to identify and the end solution was so easy.
Mrs Castle – Giffnock

I have been having my ears syringed annually but honestly can’t stand the feeling of water being forced into my ear canal. My friend told me about the micro suction and at first I was a little apprehensive, but after the treatment I couldn’t believe it! No mess, no dizziness, just clean ears!
Mrs Jamieson – Bishopbriggs, Glasgow

My wife always mentioned that I had trouble hearing her from a distance and especially in the car. The hearing health check spotted a blockage that’s been there for nearly 25 years! I’m now back to 100% again and my wife has never been happier!
