Baxter, a year three Aboriginal student who at age three developed a sensorineural hearing impairment after repeated exposure to Otitis Media. Baxter uses a cochlear implant on one ear, as the other was not viable. Unfortunately, due to bullying in previous years Baxter has limited confidence in his communication skills and will rarely speak aloud, except with the teacher privately, close friends, and family. Baxter often communicates using basic sign language, but relies heavily on gestures. He is currently working with a speech therapist to increase his speech and language skills and to increase his confidence. Being located in the western suburbs allowed Baxter to remain close to his family, but lives with his working single mother and grandfather who are present in his life, but not so in the classroom. Baxter interest lie in technology and robotics but has a gift for sports, a number of which he plays

The ability to hear is a wonderful quality of human life that every individual is exceptionally fortunate to hold. However, there are several complications that can occur before, during, or after childbirth that can cause a persons hearing to be less than normal, leaving them with life altering challenges that can impair the ways in which they perceive the world around them. Hearing loss is a universal, multicultural phenomenon that impacts children and adults alike. Estimates show that nearly 30 million Americans over the age of 12 in the United States are affected with a bilateral hearing loss (Lin, 2011).
Oliver Sacks, M.D. is a physician, a best-selling author, and a professor of neurology at the NYU School of Medicine. The New York Times has referred to him as “the poet laureate of medicine.” He is best known for his collections of neurological case histories, including The Man who Mistook his Wife for a Hat, Awakenings, Musicophilia: Tales of Music and the Brain and An Anthropologist on Mars. Awakenings, his book about a group of patients who had survived the great encephalitis lethargica epidemic of the early twentieth century, inspired the 1990 Academy Award-nominated feature film starring Robert De Niro and Robbin Williams. •••Oliver Sacks is An Anthropologist on Mars construe stories of individuals with neurological disorders as paradoxical
Purdy’s argument follows a simple Modus Ponens style of an argument. Purdy’s argument starts off by stating her first premise, which is that if someone is subjected to going through serious suffering without being able to consent that it is morally wrong. Her second premise is that some serious diseases have a high risk of being transmitted where these diseases then cause serious suffering. Purdy’s third premise states that if these serious diseases have a high risk of being transmitted, and end up causing serious suffering, then it is morally wrong to reproduce when people know there is a risk of transmission. It would then be their moral obligation to get genetically tested before trying to conceive. Purdy would consider trying to conceive
Today I am going to talk about the condition of being deaf and I am going to go in depth and explain everything you need to know about this condition. Deafness is the inability to hear, and this condition can be caused by many things, but sometimes the causes are unknown. A child can become deaf, even before it's born due to several different reasons. This condition can be a hereditary condition, passed down from other family members, even with no sign of anyone else being hard of hearing or deaf.
Myasthenia Gravis as well as known by the name (MG) is autoimmune neuromuscular disease that caused weakness in the skeletal muscles, the muscle that are used for movement to do activity of daily living. Myasthenia Gravis are caused by the neuromuscular disorder. The neuromuscular disorder for Myasthenia Gravis occurs when communication between nerve cells and muscles becomes impaired. This neuromuscular disorder caused the important muscle to make the contraction movement from occurring, that caused muscle weakness, resulting rapid fatigue of any of the muscles under voluntary control. Symptoms include drooping of one or both eyelids, diplopia and difficulty swallowing, chewing and speaking. There were no cure for the disease
Patient Screening- Laboratory tests that may be conducted to diagnose Cushing 's syndrome and identify the cause are: Blood cortisol levels, Blood sugar, saliva cortisol levels, dexamethasone suppression test, 24-hour urine monitoring for cortisol and creatinine, ACTH levels, an ACTH stimulation tests can be ordered,yet is very rare. Tests to determine the cause or complications may include an abdominal CT scan, ACTH, pituitary MRI,and bone mineral density testing.
Do not hesitate to seek medical attention if you suspect labyrinthitis. Be aware of symptoms and careful not to confuse vertigo with dizziness because, although similar, are different symptoms and may indicate different problems. It is common to feel as if everything around him was spinning during a vertigo crisis. In the dizziness, the feeling is of balance, lightheadedness, unsteadiness, as if stepping on empty and falling.
T4 and T3 test is another blood test used to diagnose Grave’s disease. Generally, low levels of TSH and elevated levels of T4 and T3 indicate Graves’s disease. However, this may also occur in other cases of hyperthyroidism. Therefore, other tests can be performed to finalize the diagnosis.
People who have severe, frequent episodes despite these treatments may need a surgical procedure. Cutting the vestibular nerve permanently destroys inner ear balance, while preserving hearing, and is successful 95% of the time in controlling vertigo. Although, none of the surgical procedures to treat vertigo are useful in treating the hearing loss that often accompanies Meniere disease.
Binaural beats are illusory beats that the brain generates when two tones of slightly differing frequencies are administered into each ear of the patient dichotically. The frequency administered to the left ear is slightly different than the frequency delivered to the right ear during the administration of binaural beats as is seen in Figure 1. The administration of binaural beats is an emerging alternative therapeutic technique that has been proven to have positive cognitive effects on the memory, mood states, and perception of chronic pain in patients.
Hearing loss is not always a genetic disease. Causes of deafness can rapidly (ly) travel (v) from ear infections, trauma, loud noise, some medication, birth defects, heredity, and aging. In this paper I will be discussing a few of these types of these causes.  Unfortunately hearing loss affects young and old people and even dogs.  Concerning pets, I have learned that these diseases can affect pets too.  Hearing loss is imperfect (adj).
It is rightly said preservation of what remains is more important, with this in consideration preventive prosthodontics can be appropriately applied highlighting the importance of delaying or eliminating future prosthodontic treatment. In this case study mandibular tooth supported BPS (bio-functional prosthetic system) overdenture and maxillary flexible partial denture was fabricated for the patient. This gives the patient a denture that has more support and retentive principles incorporated, resulting in improved retention. Decrease in rate of resorption of bone hence preservation of alveolar ridge. Overdenture patient possessed preserved sensory function, i.e., discriminating between occlusal forces closer to natural teeth. These
