LA OXIGENACIÓN HIPERBÁRICA EN LA PERDIDA DE ESCUCHA IDEOPATICA

La terapia de oxigenación hiperbárica puede utilizarse para la pérdida auditiva neurosensorial súbita idiopática como terapia adyuvante. Puede promover la oxigenación del aparato del oído interno y reactivar la capacidad auditiva. Los pacientes que no responden a los esteroides orales e intratimpánicos pueden beneficiarse de este tratamiento.​

CUANDO EMPEZAR LA TERAPIA

La oxigenoterapia hiperbárica es excelente para el tratamiento de la sordera súbita. Para obtener la respuesta optima es importante empezar la terapia en las primeras 72 horas, si no la primer semana junto con el tratamiento convencional de esteroides, para mejores resultados. Se ha visto que después de de la tercer semana el resultado va disminuyendo , reduciendo le espera del resultado deseado.

Si no pudiste acudir, se puede tomar la terapia hasta 3 meses después, con algunos resultados. Después de los 6 meses del evento, puede haber cambio sin embargo van bajando substancialmente las probabilidades de obtener resultados óptimos con la terapia hiperbarica.

Preguntas Frecuentes

Tiempo optimo para empezar la terapia?

El tiempo optimo son las primers 72hrs previas al evento

Me funciona despues de este tiempo?

Si puede haber resultado, sin embargo despues de las primeras 3 semanas va en disminución el resultado que se podrian obtener

Que presiones se necesitan?

Es importante presiones de compresión de entre 2.0 ATA a 2.4 ATA como establecido por la Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society Indications

Que resultado puedo esperar?

Depende del caso puede variar, tratándolo a tiempo podemos obtener mejores resultado

Me debería esperar a terminar mi tratamiento de esteroides o antibiótico?

No, es importante usar la terapia como coadyuvante o junto con el tratamiento convencional.

Cuantas sesiones necesito?

Normalmente se recomiendan hasta 20 sesiones, sin embargo se puede obtener mejoría en las primeras 3-10 sesiones

¿QUE ES LA PERDIDA SUBITA DE LA AUDICION NEUROSENSORIAL?

La pérdida súbita de audición neurosensorial (“oído interno”), comúnmente conocida como sordera súbita, se produce como una pérdida rápida e inexplicable de la audición, ya sea de pronto o en el transcurso de unos días.

​ La sordera súbita ocurre porque algo no funciona en los órganos sensoriales del oído interno. La sordera súbita frecuentemente afecta a solo un oído.
Las personas con sordera súbita a menudo descubren que han perdido la audición al despertarse por la mañana. Otros primero lo notan cuando intentan usar el oído en el que han perdido la audición, como al usar el teléfono. Mientras tanto, otras personas sienten un fuerte sonido explosivo como un “pop”, justo antes de perder la audición.

​Las personas con este trastorno pueden manifestar síntomas como sensación de llenura en el oído, mareos y un timbre o zumbido en los oídos, como tinnitus.
