“I rely on it so much” was said by a very active patient who works in an office environment with high needs to hear speech from a distance as well as within challenging noisy areas. She arrived saying that her wireless microphone, that streams wirelessly to her digital Resound hearing devices, was not functioning. As I looked closer I noticed that the devices were not linking to each other either. As the “plot thickened”, and more cues appeared, she was correct that when she held in the bottom on her device it didn’t connect to the other ears device or to the wireless microphone.
Ahhhh, I then connected the devices wirelessly and then repaired her wireless microphone. Shazaaaam! All was well as functioning as it should.
I AM SO GLAD that she “relies” on this technology and to be a part of solving problems that create such anxiety in a persons life is wonderful. I am humbled by being connected with patients and their lives. Sometimes, and most often, problems have easy solutions. The value of an audiologist “that cares” can make such a difference. All too often, I hear stories of people having the same problem and being told to buy a new one. All it takes is care, concern, and value in trusting to find the right solution.
it’s great how much technology has come to benefit our lives and we rely on it so much.
It sure is. Technology has come a long way!
I love this picture!
Glad that you do! It is a creative picture!
It is such a unique ability and responsibility that we have, given the nature of this profession, to help these individuals who rely on this technology to navigate their daily routine! It truly is humbling and inspiring, how much we learn from our patients. Great post!
A great deal of responsibility and honor to care for others. Well said….
We certainly do learn as well. Thanks!
