Conductive Hearing Loss

Conductive hearing loss results when there is any problem in delivering sound energy to your cochlea, the hearing part in the inner ear.

Ears and Altitude (Barotrauma)

When the eustachian tube in your middle ear is blocked due to altitude or pressure changes (barotrauma), air cannot be equalized, and a vacuum occurs.

Earwax (Cerumen Impaction)

Earwax, called cerumen, is produced by special wax-forming glands located in the skin of the outer one-third of the ear canal.
