Hearing loss Health Record Software

People with hearing loss should keep health records to monitor their condition, track changes in hearing ability, and manage their treatment effectively. By maintaining a health journal, individuals can record symptoms related to their hearing loss, such as difficulty understanding conversations or hearing certain sounds. They can also track potential triggers or factors that may worsen their hearing, such as exposure to loud noises or specific environments.

Regularly measuring their hearing with the help of hearing tests, audiograms, or self-assessment tools can provide valuable insights into the progression of their hearing loss. Additionally, individuals with hearing loss can keep a record of medications or treatments they are using to manage their condition, as well as any procedures or interventions they have undergone to improve their hearing.

Date: July 28, 2023
I will be more mindful of my listening environment and inform my family and friends about my #hearing challenges to ensure clearer communication during gatherings.
Today, I experienced increased difficulty understanding conversations during a family gathering. I had trouble #hearing soft-spoken individuals and had to ask people to repeat themselves several times.
The noise level at the restaurant during lunch was quite high, and the background noise made it challenging for me to focus on the conversation at the table. #hearing_aids
I took my prescribed #hearing_aids (Phonak Audeo M90) before going out for lunch to assist with my hearing.
I had a follow-up #hearing_test at the audiology clinic today. The results showed a slight decline in my hearing ability compared to my last visit six months ago.
I discussed the results of my hearing test with my audiologist #Dr.Brown, who recommended adjusting the settings on my hearing aids to better suit my current hearing needs.
