Activity 1.3.1 Good Vibrations INTRODUCTION Sue Smith was lucky because her bacterial meningitis infection was quickly diagnosed and treated. The antibiotics eliminated the infection and Sue was able to make a full recovery. Sue has returned to school and has even begun practicing with the soccer team again. It has been two months since her initial diagnosis, and Sue’s primary care physician has given her a clean bill of health. To Sue’s surprise, the physician has recommended that Sue have her hearing checked. Sue’s physician explains that although Sue has not noticed any symptoms of hearing loss, the incidence of hearing loss in patients who have recovered from meningitis is very high. Sue has scheduled an appointment with an audiologist , a healthcare professional specializing in treatment of patients with hearing loss and related disorders. In this activity, you will investigate the physics of sound , as well as learn how hearing works and what can go wrong in the ear that causes different types of hearing loss. You will be assigned a patient with a specific type of hearing loss and will show the cause of the hearing loss on a model of the ear.
