Mixed Hearing Loss Audiogram


Presented by:
ACC ~ The Audiology Awareness Campaign

This audiogram shows a mixed hearing loss for the left ear. The white area represents the sounds that the person would not hear (softer then their thresholds) and the tan area indicates all of the sounds that the person would be able to hear (louder then their thresholds).

Mixed Hearing Loss
Mixed hearing losses are simply combinations of the above two types of hearing loss. They can occur when a person has a permanent sensorineural hearing loss and then also develops a temporary conductive hearing loss.
