Generally, hearing loss is classified as conductive or sensorineural. Conductive hearing loss occurs usually in the external and middle ear by interfering with the ability of sound to be transmitted to the inner ear. Many causes can be treated successfully with surgery.

Sensorineural hearing losses occur in the inner ear (sensory) or auditory. Management of hearing loss in children Hearing loss in children can be divided into conductive and sensorineural hearing loss.

Conductive hearing loss is caused by disease in the outer (pinna or ear canal) or middle ear (tympanic membrane, ossicles or middle ear cavity), affecting the transmission of sound to the inner ear (Figure 1).Cited by: 1.

Management of hearing loss. Early intervention and detection of hearing loss is necessary to prevent additional problems with speech and language development. A healthcare team approach is normally used when a child is diagnosed with some degree of hearing loss.
