Basics of Audiology

Audiology is a relatively new allied healthcare field dealing with hearing and balance disorders.  The real beginnings of audiology date back to World War II when Raymond Carhart coined the term.  There has been a rapid growth in the field of audiology since that time. Audiologists are trained in evaluating patients who present with symptoms such as ear pain, hearing loss, dizziness, difficulty hearing in noise. The scope of audiologists has continued to increase in magnitude over the past  5-6 decades. My hope is to contribute information regarding hearing and balance issues to this blog that will be of value to the reader.
