Cochlear Synaptopathy, also known at Hidden Hearing Loss (HHL), is a relatively recent discovery involving damage between auditory nerve fibers and sensory cells. The reason it is considered ‘hidden’ is because it is not something that can appear as a hearing loss on an audiogram. Individuals who may potentially have HHL could have suffered from a noise trauma (e.g., explosion) or repetitive noise events (e.g., working as a carpenter). In this talk, we will discuss what HHL is, its manifestations, how noise plays a major role in HHL, and what to think about when suspecting HHL.
