Introduction and description

Deafness and Hearing loss, also known as hearing impairment, is a partial or total inability to hear.  A deaf person has little to no hearing.  Hearing loss may occur in one or both ears.  It can be temporary or permanent depending on the cause.

Hearing loss is diagnosed when hearing testing finds that a person is unable to hear 25 decibels in at least one ear and is categorised as mild, moderate, severe, or profound.
