Conductive Hearing Loss in Children Male: If you’re a chronic middle ear infusion and someone says the kid has a loss of hearing that is not a real loss of hearing that’s a temporary loss of hearing is that true? Shawn: That’s correct it can be reversed. Usually what they’re talking about is a conductive hearing loss and when we do it in audiogram or hearing test there’s two lines that we look at one is a bone line which tells us how the child’s hearing organ is working to cochlea and the other one is an airline which tells how they’re actually hearing. If there’s a difference between the two that usually is doing a middle ear infusion and can be conductive hearing loss and that can be reversed.
