Types of Hearing Loss:
SENSORINEURAL Hearing Loss (SNHL)
SNHL occurs when there is damage to the inner ear (cochlea), or to the nerve pathways between the inner ear and the brain.
CONDUCTIVE Hearing Loss
Conductive hearing loss occurs when sound is not conducted efficently through the outter ear canal, to the eardrum and to the tiny bones (ossicles) of the middle ear.
