Audiology is a specialised branch of science dealing with hearing, balances and related disorders. It basically determines the hearing capacity of a person, whether it falls in the prescribed hearing limit and if not, what is the status of hearing loss in a person and the stage of the impairment. Based on the diagnosis, the audiologist (who is the specialist in the field) determines the course of action to improve the condition. He suggests medications and necessary procedures, if needed. The vestibular system is the concern of the audiologist. It is a developing field and making significant contributions to treat people with disabilities. The main divisions covered under audiology include paediatrics, research and development, special needs groups, teaching and adult rehabilitation and assessment. Audiology is expanding and one of the more progressing fields of clinical science. Good communication skills and a patient approach to problems are the most important prerequisites for entering the field.
