With this information, they are able to recommend appropriate management, or refer you on to the necessary health care professional.
Pediatric audiology is a type of healthcare offered to both infants and young children who are experiencing hearing problems or sound recognition issues.
Identifying hearing problems early in a child's life is essential for normal speech and language development, as well as social development.

Balance Function Tests (VNG)
The VNG is a test of the inner ear and portions of the brain.
The VNG can help your doctor understand the cause of your dizziness or balance problem.
The test requires cooperation on your part to be successful. It is important that you feel well rested for the test.

Vertigo is a symptom, rather than a condition itself. It's the sensation that you, or the environment around you, is moving or spinning.
This feeling may be barely noticeable, or it may be so severe that you find it difficult to keep your balance and do everyday tasks.
Here are some common vertigo causes:
- Migraine headaches.
- Certain medications.
- Head injuries.
- Prolonged bed rest.
- Shingles in or near the ear.
Hearing Protection / Noise Protection
Hearing protection is used to reduce (attenuate) noise reaching the wearer's ear, and so reduce the risk of hearing damage from excessive noise.
The effectiveness of hearing protection is often limited by personal and workplace factors, and it can reduce the audibility of warning sounds
What ear plugs do swimmers use?
The first of two types of silicone earplugs for swimmers are these ones.
The good thing about them is that they are pre-molded, meaning you can wash them after use and get a lot of mileage out of them.
Do ear plugs work for sleeping?
Sleeping with earplugs can significantly improve the quality of your sleep.
For many people, earplugs are the only way to block out sounds while they sleep, such as noise from a nearby freeway or a snoring partner.
This is significant because the quality of your sleep matters just as much as the amount you get.
