Complexities in audiology concerning otologists
In the recent past, the practice of audiology has been among the most misunderstood fields in medicine. This has been due to issues to do with perception and duplication in the roles of audiologists and the most recent arrival in healthcare practice, the otologist.
Otology is the newest branch of medicine which is concerned with the treatment of ear ailments.ear doctors who can solve issues arising from the complications and infection of the ear.otologists are a misunderstood klot, they are mostly mixed up with the practice of audiology.
Otologists perform complex ear treatment procedures which can enable the patient to hear again, this is in contrast to the audiologists are concerned with the same role and even more to do with the care for the ear patient .the ear patient under the care of audiologist are better off because they are given the extra care.
While the otology practitioners may not do the diagnostic services, the audiologists are concerned with diagnostics and the care for the patient. The audiologists have the responsibility of recommending the best hearing aids to the patient. The otologists usually do not give the hearing aids.
The otologists may get the same level of education as the audiologists though audiologist career is concerned more with care for the patient; it is more of giving the alternative to the treatment. This is mostly when all the efforts of the otologists have been exploited .audiologists are thus ear patient care providers who are more of care providers than doctors when explained in simple sense.
The audiology practice thus seems to be more pronounced because their scope of work is more advanced in the field of care and treatment rather than the practice by the otologists which are mostly based on the treatment of the ear.
The two practices are thus found to be interlinked and in most cases hard to distinguish from each other from the ordinary folks. This has in the recent past led to lack of distinction between the two practices in medicine. This confusion is not so healthy and so the two practices can be merged to give better services.
