Audiometry & Speech Therapy center
Audiometry and Speech therapy is a test conducted to examine sound hearing and speech ability. Every sound varies, it is based on the intensity and the speed of the sound tone. A person can hear when sound waves stimulate the nerves of the inner ear. These sound waves then travel to the brain.
Sound intensity is measured in Decibel (dB):
- A whisper is about 20 dB.
- Loud music in concerts, functions is around 80 to 120 dB.
- The sound of the jet engine is about 140 to 180 dB.
Anyone hearing sound greater than 85 dB can cause hearing loss after a few hours. Louder sounds can lead to immediate pain, and hearing loss can be developed in a very short time.
When you struggle to hear what people around you are trying to say it becomes frustrating. This can even lead to depression. In such cases, an Audiologist can help to provide proper treatment for the audiology problem.
