Is It Ear wax

So a nice gentleman presented at my Ear wax removal clinic. Stating that he had purchased some very expensive in the canal hearing aids some 6 months earlier. But felt his hearing was still getting worse. His own conclusion was that although the chap that sold him the hearing aids  was a nice guy
                "He just didn't seem interested in me anymore"
And that  he was convinced that because he and his Wife. Although both in there 80's went swimming every day. That his ears must be full of wax. 
Copy right Nick Chitty
First picture is left Ear. A quick hearing test showed that the Patient had Mixed hearing loss. But most of it being of a conductive nature. I would speculate years of cold water swimming has caused these growths, 
They Are non Malignant

This patient was referred back to his local ENT Consultant. Who after careful consideration is doing some small surgical procedures. And has asked I provide more suitable Hearing aids

Music to your Ears

So I got this amazing comment from a patient this week after fitting her with some Resound Verso hearing aids 

 Hi Nick
"Would have posted earlier to thank you for the brilliant new 'Aids' - but have spent the last few hours trying to catch up on all the music I've missed over the last couple of decades"

What has changed this patient hearing experience is not just her new Hearing aids. But the new accessory device from Resound called the Mini Mic. This discrete simple device means that now after years of not hearing music properly she hears very note. But not just music. Even when sat in a busy restaurant the mini mic will boost the voices you want to here. And help eliminate unwanted sounds
Resound Mini Mic

The ultimate portable voice and sound streamer

ReSound Unite Mini Microphone transmits speech directly to your hearing aids. It is a discreet clip-on microphone that helps you hear speech clearly. So you can enjoy one-on-one communication in difficult listening situations. Effortlessly and reliably.

The Mini Microphone also functions as a personal, portable audio streamer to help you listen to your iPod or laptop. Or for TV watching when you’re away from home - just place it in front of the speakers of the TV to stream directly to your ears. It's the ultimate portable voice and sound streamer.
If you would like a free demonstration on how the Verso range could change your life call   Nick   01793-530541   07557 053157

First day blues

So camp set up. spent Friday morning catching up with old friends from USA/Japan/holland Denmark to name a few. The gliders had made the trip okay and I spent a quite couple hours on my own getting them set up.
 These gliders are British made. By Richard And Haley at and are called a sabotage. There flying weight is 265 grams. You are only allowed 5 gliders for the competition. They all have there dimensions checked by an FAI official and then carry a stamp on them to say that they are legal but can not be changed. If it get windy it is possible to add up to 100 grms weight inside the glider to help it penetrate into wind. 

Nick And the Japanese F3K Team
  My wife Valerie had met the Japanese Team at the last world championships in Sweden. As she couldn't attend as my timer this year "Valerie San" Made the Team  a special Cherry and marzipan cake. Which went down very well. According to Yoichi there Team manger. "Thank you Valerie san we miss you"
Camp UK
So test flying complete at about 3 pm I was feeling a little tired. went back to the camper van for a quick snooze. Woke up 4 hrs latter !!!  think the 12 hr drive caught up with me. Team meeting tomorrow and some more practice

Nearly fell at the first fence !!!!!!

So last patient seen I dashed home to finish packing the motor home. I took some time over storage of gliders and then loaded another pilots kit. I was ready for the off. So with an emotional fare well to my wife Val i clambered aboard "Sammy Swift" the motor home and headed of to pick my friend and timer Lorry green. I had not got more than 2 miles down the road when the alternator warning light came on. EEeeeeekkkk Blind panic came over me as to the enormity of what would happen if I couldn't get to Denmark. As I drove home it crossed my mind that I had just had the camper serviced and a new Alternator belt fitted not more than a week ago. A quick inspection showed the new belt in-tacked but scrambling underneath with the van jacked up reveled a plug pulled off the alternator. Van fixed and back on the road in 20 mins.
     We drove to Harwich Tuesday night, camped over and got the morning ferry to the Hook of Holland. the sea was like a mill pond and the ferry was half empty which was nice.  Then started the long long drive to Herning in Denmark.
Sammy Swift ready at the ferry port
Interesting but not as comfortable as Sammy Swift
I have to say they do know how to look after drivers in Europe.Plenty of places to stop and eat and to sleep over at no charge. Why cant we do that in the UK. Driving from 2pm till 11.30pm  uneventfuly  through Holland-Germany.   pulling up just short of denmark knowing we would have a short 3 drive in the morning.
I am picking 2 pairs up on the way back
We arrived at the airfield 11.30am Thursday morning. The set up is brilliant.WiFi - Electric hook up. toilets. Showers, and even a trailer with washing machine.Oven.cooker . And fridge freezer. Best bit is a chap drives round in a golf trolley selling chilled beer. Tomorrow I will unpack the gliders and start some practice.
               Cheers Nick

Off to the World Championships

Well the time has come. I am off to Denmark for the World F3K Championships. The F 3 What I hear you cry.  F3K  is the international contest class for radio controlled, hand-launched model gliders. They are limited to a wingspan of 1.5 metres. They have a launch peg/blade on the wing tip the idea is to throw the glider as high as possible. Good pilots get 200 to 250 feet or 60 meters.  And then stay up using thermals (heat rising) or any available lift from possible ground sources. Like tree lines or even a house if i get desperate.

So what now!!. 10/15 Pilots all launch on the timing horn. where are all stood in a 75 metre box there can be carnage, but not often. Then depending on the task chosen by the organizers we have to stay up for specific times and land back in the take off box for the time to count as points. sometimes there are multiply timed task and this is where the fun begins guessing how the other competitors are doing. I will have own Timer/Coach in my old flying friend Lorry Green he is a good timer as he can spot good lift for me from other competitors during the task. Its going to be a long 10 days. There are 26 country's taking part all with teams of 3 senior pilots and there is a junior competition running along side the seniors. But first the long drive to Denmark I leave on the 17 will keep you posted

Severe Hearing loss. Loose the "MASSIVE MOULDS"

Its always saddening when people come to my clinic wearing powerful hearing aids and huge acrylic moulds
with modern technology the use of these Occluding moulds should be a thing of the past. But week in week out I see people coming into my hearing center with sore ears and feeling bunged up. And assuming this is the only outcome for them. Now I am not saying this will work for everyone but surely we have to try for a better outcome. well we do at Nick Chitty Hearingcare

This young lady has a moderate to severe  Hearing loss in both ears  (red -right) (blue-left)

Nick Chitty Hearing Care: Important News

Nick Chitty Hearing Care: Important News: Great News Annoucement for Nick Chitty Hearing Care 11am  Monday 11th February  2013

Recognition of Excellence for Nick Chitty

Look after people and good things happen!!!

PRESS RELEASE                          
Recognition of Excellence for Nick Chitty Hearing Care
Nick Chitty Hearing Care is proud to announce that they have been made a Centre of Excellence by Danish hearing aid specialist, GN ReSound.  ReSound Centres of Excellence are a select, highly skilled professional group who demonstrate exemplary customer care and technical expertise.
Making sure that a client receives the greatest possible benefit from their hearing instruments is a highly skilled job.   Unlike glasses where the skill lies in diagnosis and the resulting prescription can simply be “popped on”, hearing aids require a huge amount of time and expertise after the diagnosis.  Each hearing instrument must be delicately tailored to each individual.  They often require adjusting as the client becomes accustomed to their new world of sound.  This fine-tuning can take several appointments over a number of months.  It ensures that the wearer is getting the most from the hearing aids that they have invested in.
To be recognised as a ReSound Centre of Excellence, Nick Chitty Hearing Care was able to demonstrate a commitment to expertise, training and professional development in a clinical and caring background and a comprehensive aftercare programme. 
Nick Chitty owner of Nick Chitty Hearing Care says “We are delighted that the care and service we offer our clients has been recognised by ReSound.  Our ethos has always been to put the client first and we are prepared to spend as much time as is necessary to make sure that our customers get the best out of their hearing aids.  Unfortunately you hear a lot of stories about people being seduced by the offer of cheap hearing aids online without realising that so much of the performance of a hearing aid is governed by the way it is programmed and fine-tuned.  They buy online but end up being dissatisfied with their hearing aids because they don’t help them in way that they should.  Any client who comes to us receives personalised and ongoing fine-tuning based on their hearing loss, preferences, lifestyle, and their physiology. Plus we offer a service and support package for their aids.  We guarantee that this level of care makes a real, audible difference to our clients”.
ReSound are a leading hearing aid manufacturer responsible for many of the major technical advances in hearing aid technology in the past 25 years.  Their latest product ReSound Verso uses groundbreaking technology that enables two hearing instruments to work together as a single system.  It helps you to hear effortlessly in everyday situations and on special occasions.  It has a natural, rich and accurate sound.  It also has first generation wireless streaming that connects to the TV and mobile phones.  To find out more contact Nick Chitty on 01793-530541  - 07557053157

Ear Wax Removal

As a health care professional I am often asked this question
           "Nick if i don't use cotton buds how do I clean my ears"
The answer is easy if you understand the basic bio mechanics of what happens in your ear canal.
Why do we produce ear wax 
1  For Cleaning
2  For Lubrication
3  It's  Antibacterial
                       The skin in you ear canal is like a conveyor belt it is always moving to the outside of your ear. The idea being that any debris.dirty,dry skin,hair will stick to the wax and slowly be removed

                           Ear wax has many moisturising  qualities to help your ear canal stay in tip top condition
If you keep removing it you will just produce more. and more !

                                  Because ear wax is slightly acidic and is made up of fatty acids this help resist certain bacteria and fungal growths.

So there you have it mother nature has given us a simple device to transmit sound down. That if left alone in most people will self clean. So the next time you notice some ear wax at the opening of you ear canal. Don't go diving in with a cotton bud to remove it. The wax has been on a 9-12 month journey just remove with a soft tissue or warm flannel wrapped over your little finger 
If you are concearned about wax build up call Nick at his dedicated
Hearing Centre for a 
                                    Free consultation
