PMID:  21304837     Owner:  NLM     Status:  In-Data-Review    
Hearing loss in the elderly is an extremely common handicap which must be assessed together with multiple sensory handicaps. The handicap produced is more than a peripheral loss of hearing acuity; it is a complex amalgam of end organ and neurological deficits, including the inability to inhibit unwanted sound as well as the loss of ability to detect faint sound. Methods of managing it are described.
