Audiologist Kayleigh Eccles

In January 2019 audiologist Kayleigh Eccles marked four years at The Brian Eccles Hearing Centre. Although she is often seen front-of-house as the face of the business Kayleigh is far more than just a receptionist and administrator. She is, in fact, a fully qualified audiologist with a wide range of skills and experience

Audiologist Kayleigh Eccles

Kayleigh’s Qualifications and Experience

Kayleigh joined the business in 2015 as a trainee audiologist having graduated with a degree in English from Nottingham Trent University. Since then she has qualified both as an audiologist and in micro-suction ear wax removal.

Audiology

Audiology is a difficult career to detail in only a few lines. It can be a challenging profession where you put your knowledge to good use with people of all ages and in various environments. Wide-ranging duties include, but are not limited to, helping and rehabilitating people with hearing loss or balance disorders. For Kayleigh, this is the most rewarding part of her job. She loves helping people with hearing problems to improve their quality of life and enjoy greater interaction with loved ones.

Opportunities for an Audiologist

Many exciting opportunities exist in this field because audiology is a rapid moving and varied discipline. It suits those with a background in science and technology, electronics as well as speech and language. The latter is of particular interest to Kayleigh given her educational background. A wish to work with and help people is key and forms the most important element of both training and the job.

Skills and Qualities of an Audiologist

Amongst the requirements for an audiologist are the ability to communicate with all types of people. This is because some patients will find their failing hearing worrying and stressful. Therefore a caring and sympathetic attitude are a vital element of the role. Manual dexterity, decent problem-solving skills and sharp analytical skills are also valuable attributes. Kayleigh’s patients will surely agree that she ticks all of these boxes!

Earwax Removal

Kayleigh has lost track of how many ears she has cleaned since she qualified at the beginning of last year. All ears are different. Some will have hard impacted wax that will require patience and persistence. Others will have softer wax that may be equally time-consuming. Added to this, the differences in the shape and size of the ear canal, contribute to the complexity of the procedure. For Kayleigh, it’s all in a day’s work. The relief when a patient can hear clearly or loses the pressure in their ears can be very rewarding.

Audiologist Clinics and Home Visits

Kayleigh enjoys the chance to attend the practice’s clinics in Northampton and Bedford. In addition, she also regularly visits patients with limited mobility in their own homes. This gives her the opportunity to meet a wider range of people and provide the businesses hallmark sympathetic care.

New Technology and Advances

In the relatively short time that Kayleigh has been an audiologist, she has noticed huge advances in hearing technology. When she attended the launch of Phonak’s Marvel range last year she was able to witness this at first hand. Modern hearing aids feature connectivity with Bluetooth devices, remote adjustment and unparalleled richness of sound. Kayleigh has noted that older patients are embracing this new technology. At the same time, younger people are becoming aware of the dangers of loud noise and are looking to protect their ears.

Advice from Audiologist Kayleigh Eccles

One of the key pieces of advice that Kayleigh offers is, to take immediate action if you have a suspected hearing loss. She advises:

The first thing to do is to just get it looked at! Because, although it might make you nervous to think that there’s something wrong with your hearing it could be simple as there’s a blockage of wax which is then a quick fix. If not, rather than trying to deny it, or pretend it’s not happening you’re better to get your hearing tested. Early intervention is always better, rather than letting it get too bad and isolating yourself.

You can contact Kayleigh at The Brian Eccles Hearing Centre on 0800 083 2547.

Hearing loss

Hearing loss is a gradual process. It can have an impact a long time before it appears as impaired hearing. Even an untreated mild hearing loss can increase the chance of cognitive decline, dementia or tinnitus. These are conditions that can result in loneliness, isolation, and anxiety with a corresponding reduction in quality of life. A hearing test should, therefore, be a proactive health check that offers an opportunity for early intervention.

Delays in Tackling Hearing Loss

Many of those with hearing loss will, sadly, wait until, or often beyond the point where they are struggling to understand speech or converse with family members.

The average person has been having trouble hearing for 7 to 10 years before they come in — they say it’s only been a few months, but we’ve found it’s years,
Dr. Eric Hagberg

Pride, embarrassment or simply a refusal to acknowledge the ageing process causes delays. That hesitancy can affect one’s quality of life, general health and well-being.

Free Online Hearing Checker

Are you concerned about seeking professional help or are you happy that your hearing is just fine? Either way, why not spend just 3 minutes finding out with the Free Online Hearing Checker on the homepage of this website? You will either have peace of mind or confirmation that you need to seek help. We have spent over 30 years tackling hearing loss and we want you to care as much about your hearing. If you are worried about your hearing health or simply curious just take the simple test. Then, you can find out more about our state-of-the-art products on this site. There’s no substitute for a professional hearing test and a consultation with a qualified audiologist, however, the Online Hearing Checker can provide some quick and helpful indications about your hearing health. All of this can be done from the comfort of your own home.

Marvel Hearing Aids Launch Day

Marvel Hearing Aids Launched

The team at Brian Eccles Hearing Centre attended the recent launch of Phonak‘s new range of Marvel hearing aids. This confirmed their early expectations about the superb quality of the product.

The First Marvel Hearing Aids

The first Marvel devices will be the Audeo (Phonak’s Receiver In Canal devices) consisting of five hearing aids. Two of these will be rechargeable. These rechargeable devices will appear in two sizes, a small rechargeable device and slightly larger one that will be compatible with Loop systems.

Multi-functional Hearing Aid With Many Features

The Marvel hearing aids have many functions and special features. Phonak have possibly considered all of the headline features in the current hearing aid world and a few more besides!

Stereo Streaming via Bluetooth

Sound can be streamed via any Bluetooth enabled device directly into the hearing aid, without the need for a secondary interface such as the Phonak Com Pilot II. This includes an impressive array of smartphones, computers, laptops and tablets. The sound quality seems to be first class too, with rich and vibrant bass and zingy treble. This is one of the reasons why Phonak have adopted the slogan “Love at First Sound”.

Hands-Free Stereo Calling

Like its predecessor, the Audeo B Direct, the Marvel allows hands-free calls from any Bluetooth phone and internet-based services, such as Skype. The main difference, however, is that this is now available in stereo with the sound being delivered to both ears. This gives the user a much greater chance of understanding the conversation. What’s more, the phone can be up to around 10 metres away with the option to answer via a switch on the hearing aid.

Versatile TV Streaming

The Marvel hearing aids will link with Phonak’s TV Streamer and connect directly to all Bluetooth enabled televisions. The audio will stream straight to your Marvel hearing aids once you have set up a TV connection.

Marvel Hearing Aids – Rechargeable Options

A single charge will last for around sixteen hours which includes a full four hours of audio streaming. This means that you should get a full day’s use from the devices. The rechargeable devices seem like the sensible option given that the Bluetooth connection will use a lot of power. This will, therefore, save on battery changes and costs.

Speech To Text App

The Phonak myCall-to-Text app gives you the option to read live, what the other person is saying. This is a great feature and Brian Eccles at Phonak Marvel hearing aids launchonce the app is downloaded can even be used without wearing the Marvel hearing aids. This feature will allow you to converse in all situations without the worry of missing parts of the conversation.

Remote Adjustment

The Marvel system is the first UK Phonak hearing aid that offers remote fine tuning to users. The innovative system is operated live during a pre-arranged appointment during working hours. Changes to the hearing aids are made in real time so the user can see the effect in their current environment. The process takes place with a video call from the hearing centre’s software. and gives a reassuring one to one engagement with the professional. The Brian Eccles Hearing Centre is delighted with this technological advance and the benefits it will give to their clients.

Remote Fine Tuning App

To complement the remote fine tuning there is a new app called the myPhonak App. This allows you to access a hearing diary in order to give feedback on your use and experience with the new hearing aids. The concept of co-operation with your hearing partner is a large part of the new Marvel range.

Love at First Sound?

The Brian Eccles Hearing Centre wholly endorses the new range of Marvel hearing aids. They would love to welcome you to try them for yourself and experience at first hand the rich sound quality in all environments. Call now to book a demonstration on 0800 083 2547.

Why Choose an Independent Hearing Centre?

Is the age of the specialist dead? In the face of competition, especially from online business, retailers and service providers have had to diversify. This means that the core services upon which they built their reputations are lost amongst a range of others that are only loosely related. Chains of opticians and pharmacies only offer hearing services as a sideshow to their main businesses. So, can they claim to be specialists?

Independent Audiologists are Specialists

Your local independent hearing centre tends to specialise. They will typically have one or more trained audiologists and they will only focus on your hearing. This may range from ear wax removal and diagnostic hearing tests through to hearing aid dispensing and special tinnitus treatments. Some of them will also have a strong knowledge of noise protection products. This demonstrates a holistic approach to hearing care and wellness. The larger multiples, on the other hand, tend to focus on the dispensing of hearing instruments, often to the exclusion of other products and services.

They Offer a Personal Service

You are more than a record card or a name on a computer system! To an Independent Audiologist, you are the lifeblood of their business. When you pop in for some replacement batteries they are likely to remember which hearing device you use. If that needs adjusting it can usually be done there and then. They may also enquire after your health, ask about your grandson’s sports team and make you feel welcome. Compare this with the conveyor belt operation at one of the multiples. You can choose. Which would you prefer?

Continuity of Service

At an independent hearing practice, you might see the same audiologist year after year. A small client-focused family run business hs fewer staff changes. In this way, the audiologist will have an ongoing knowledge of your hearing and personal history. In a larger organisation, you may have to see a random audiologist or locum who will have to learn about your hearing history at each visit. Their job is harder, and you will have less confidence in their ability to manage your hearing.

Greater Product Knowledge

The larger multiples will have a higher turnover of staff and their focus will be on hitting targets. As a result, they won’t have the time to become fully aware of product features and new developments. An independent hearing centre is likely to have a better working knowledge of the products that they recommend. They will have been to manufacturer’s launch days and will have become acquainted with every feature of the hearing device.

They Can Spend More Time with You

The independent hearing centre won’t rush you. Appointments will be thorough and relaxed. You will, therefore, be able to ask questions and ensure that you are delighted with your product or treatment.

To experience the difference in visiting an independent audiologist for yourself contact The Brian Eccles Hearing Centre on 0800 083 2547

Phonak Naida B Power Hearing Aids

Phonak Naida B Power Hearing Aids

The Naida range of power hearing aids was introduced by Phonak back in 2007. Since then, they have supplied over 2.5 million of these hearing devices worldwide. The Brian Eccles Hearing Centre has always rated Naida as one of the best power hearing aids on the market. Now the upgraded fifth generation of Naida B ensures that the product is even better!

Greater Audibility of High-Pitched Sounds

Severe to profound hearing loss often means it is hard to hear high-pitched sounds. Since the launch of Nadia B, Phonak has led the way in frequency compression which is a way of enhancing these high-pitched sounds. These are things such as children’s voices, consonants in speech like “s” and “f” or birdsong. The feature that allows this is called SoundRecover2. It cleverly retains the quality of low-pitched sounds and also allows easier processing of high-pitched sounds.

First Rate Speech Understanding

One of the hardest challenges for those with severe to profound hearing loss is with the recognition of speech. Some tough hearing situations might feature background noise as for example, in a busy restaurant. Elsewhere, being outside on a windy day or travelling in a car where the listener does not face the speaker are further examples.  Phonak address such situations with Binaural VoiceStream Technology, and its cutting-edge communication technology. Both hearing aids communicate with each other which ensures that speech is heard in both ears and his happens even if the voice is only picked up by one device. The outcome is a greater understanding of speech with reduced listening effort. This can only improve the quality of life of those with severely impaired hearing.

Rechargeable and Easy to Use

 

Naida B Charging CaseThe Nadia B-R RIC (Receiver In The Canal) comes with a range of charging options for total flexibility. These include a power pack for where there is no power source and compact charging options where space is at a premium. Lithium-ion technology supports the hearing devices which typically allow 24 hours of use on a 3-hour charge.

 

State-of-the-Art Technology and First-Class Design

As the severely and profoundly hard of hearing rely heavily on their hearing aids they need to be robust and durable. With a new glass fibre shell, the latest Naida B is around 60% stronger than previous models. This means that users can wear the hearing aids with maximum confidence. In addition, they are also both water and dust resistant with an IP68 rating. This guarantees protection at a depth of up to 30 metres for half an hour.

The Naida B comes in a range of nine classic colours for fashion-conscious wearers. In addition, the fitting ranges of the Naida B RIC and Naida B SP have been increased at the severe end of the hearing spectrum. With devices that are also 25% smaller than before, this opens up near invisible hearing to even more users.

Combination With Roger Microphone Technology

The Naida B is able to make use of all Bluetooth streaming devices that are available in the Phonak range. This wireless digital technology, known as Roger utilises discreet microphones and receivers. You can hear the speaker’s voice directly in your ear for improved communication in meetings and at social occasions. The combination of Roger and Naida B are very powerful.

The Brian Eccles Hearing Centre will happily guide you through the Naida range so that you can see and hear the enhancements and the benefits for your daily life. Call us today for an early appointment.

About Ear WaxThere are many misconceptions about ear wax. Here are a few things that you may not know.

1.Ear Wax Is Not Actually Wax.

The scientific name for ear wax is cerumen. It is a combination of skin cells, hair and secretions from glands in the outer ear canal. Some of the major components of ear wax include fatty acids, alcohols and cholesterol.  It does have a waxy consistency which helps it to perform all sorts of important functions.

2. Ear Wax Is Your Body’s Natural Defence Mechanism

Ear wax performs a valuable function. It prevents dust, dirt and other foreign bodies from reaching the inner ear. Without ear wax our ears would be more vulnerable to infection and inflammation. It even acts as an insect repellant, because it contains acids that they find unpleasant.

3. Antibacterial Qualities of Ear Wax

Ear wax acts not only as a physical barrier, but it also has antibacterial and anti-fungal qualities. Richard Rosenfeld from Long Island Hospital identified these when he wrote his guidelines for ear wax removal in 2008.

4. Ear Wax is Water Soluble

Dr Rosenfeld also suggests that warm water is just as effective as over the counter remedies for removing ear wax. A few drops of water at body temperature may be able to help loosen stubborn wax. It may be that the warm water from your shower is enough to dissolve and loosen ear wax. However, this should not be accompanied by prodding or poking which can have the opposite effect.

5. Ear Wax Naturally Disappears of its Own Accord

For most people, ear wax naturally migrates towards the outside of your ear and needs no assistance. The daily movements of the jaw whilst chewing and talking help to facilitate this. Sometimes the addition of a few drops of natural oils such as olive or almond oil can assist with the process.

6. Causes of Ear Wax Build Up

Not all ears are created equal. In some oddly shaped ears or those with small ear canals, the natural migration of ear wax can be affected. Elsewhere some clumsy attempts at physical removal of wax with cotton buds or hair grips can cause it to become impacted and require specialist treatment. Music lovers who prefer earbuds and even “in-the-ear” hearing aid wearers are also vulnerable to wax build-up because this prevents the natural migration of ear wax. Some studies have also suggested that stress and anxiety can also contribute to the build-up of ear wax owing to stimulation of the sweat glands.

7. Ear Wax Varies Depending on Where You’re From

One unusual fact about ear wax is that it varies depending on your ethnic origin! Monell Research Center identified that, like sweat, ear wax varies between races. Some have ear wax that is dry and crumbly whilst in others, it is wet and sticky. The latter is more likely to occur in those with European or African ancestry.

8. Symptoms of Ear Wax Build Up

Excess ear wax can result in several symptoms. These range from an earache, a feeling of fullness in the ear(s) or ringing or noises in the ear akin to tinnitus. Elsewhere, sufferers have reported decreased hearing, dizziness, coughs, fevers and unpleasant odours from the ear(s).

9. About Ear Wax and Hopi Ear Candles

Attributed to ancient medicine, even the Hopi Tribe after whom one type of ear candle was named, have denied that they ever used them at all! For those tempted to use ear candles to remove wax should take heed. The Universities of Exeter and Plymouth have described the process as “a triumph of ignorance over science” and state:

A critical assessment of the evidence shows that its mode of action is implausible and demonstrably wrong. There are no data to suggest that it is effective for any condition. Furthermore, ear candles have been associated with ear injuries. The inescapable conclusion is that ear candles do more harm than good. Their use should be discouraged.

In short, speak to your doctor or audiologist about ear wax rather than trusting to dubious remedies.

10. Micro-Suction – The Gold Standard for Ear Wax Removal

With doubts as to the safety and efficacy of ear syringing and as resources have become limited, most GP surgeries no longer offer an ear wax removal service. Micro-suction ear wax removal is seen as the gold standard solution amongst private practice. The process is quick, clean and pain-free and because a microscope with depth perception is used to view the removal of wax, it is perfectly safe.

At the Brian Eccles Hearing Centre micro-suction ear wax removal is often available at short notice and the cost of £40.00 includes both ears if required. As professional audiologists, the practice will also be able to check for any potential hearing problems and offer help and advice..

Kayleigh Eccles Wax Removal Certificate

Audiologist Kayleigh Eccles has passed her training in micro suction ear wax removal with flying colours. The course took place at The Hearing Lab’s premises in Warrington. The training is only for ear care professionals, so attendees already have to show a high level of skill and knowledge. Kayleigh demonstrated safe practice and clinical competence and as a result, can now remove ear wax at the Kettering branch.

The Build Up of Ear Wax

Some ears have overactive wax glands and therefore secrete too much wax. Trying to remove the wax with cotton buds or other implements can make the problem worse. Sometimes the use of earphones can stop wax from escaping.The symptoms can be a feeling of fullness in the ear, partial hearing loss, buzzing or an earache. It can lead to persistent hearing loss or infection if not treated.

 Micro Suction Ear Wax Removal

The procedure uses a microscope to give a clear view of the ear canal. A tiny suction device then removes the wax and there’s usually no need to apply olive oil. The Brian Eccles Hearing Centre added micro suction ear wax removal in October 2015 as an alternative to ear syringing. Since then, and with fewer GP practices offering the service the practice has cleaned ears for over 2000 clients. Happy customers have said that the process is quick, simple and pain-free and has given them instant relief. The added plus is that a qualified hearing expert will examine their ears and spot any obvious hearing defects.

Increased Capacity and Flexibility

The Brian Eccles Hearing Centre is delighted to add Kayleigh to their wax removal staff. It means that they will be able to offer an even more flexible service and thus keep waiting times to a minimum. They are always happy to give help and advice on any aspect of hearing.
