What a positive way to explain how well this patient is hearing. His environments are very different in so many ways. Where there was a loss of the bird’s song, sounds around him, and the loss of speech, he is now hearing the world in a whole new way. Most importantly, sounds are comfortable, inviting, and pleasing. Improving one’s hearing is most successful when a patient’s tolerance is taken as a priority, particularly for those experiencing digital hearing devices for the first time.
Slow steps toward introducing new sounds is important for a persons tolerance and adjusting to a new way of hearing. Digital technology has advanced in so many ways. It’s a real pleasure to help those regain a new sense of the world and a “new normal”!
So true, I can’t imagine how overwhelming it would be to hear everything all at once after living in the quiet for so long!
Yes, it can be overwhelming. I like to go slower to best acclimate to the new sounds.
Sounds like a wonderful new normal to me!
It sure does Gail!
I’m sure it can be overwhelming when all the little sounds you haven’t heard in a while are clear again. Makes sense why it’s important to take it slow to help the patient adjust.
I agree with you. it does make good sense. Thank you for adding your ideas!
Welcome Dale! Thank you for sharing.
