It is a disease characterized by a hearing loss of more than 30% at 3 consecutive frequencies occurring within three days. Tinnitus often accompanies the picture. Hearing loss can be seen in different time periods ranging from minutes to hours.

It is usually seen from the 40s onwards and there is no significant gender difference. The history may include a previous upper respiratory tract infection. Effective success in treatment is directly related to the process of the patient coming to the physician and being diagnosed. Success is higher in patients who are diagnosed early.

TREATMENT

Generally, inpatient treatment to increase inner ear blood flow is the best alternative. Supporting this treatment with hyperbaric oxygen therapy is the best alternative today.
