Hearing aid fitting and cleaning information sheet
Step 1: the picture shows the main two parts the hearing aid and mould.
Cleaning your hearing aid
Try to keep your thin tube clean by wiping daily with a mild wet wipe such as a baby wipe. If the tubing is blocked or the earmould gets very dirty, you can clean it in the following way.
Using your hearing aid with a telephone
The top of the handset needs to be positioned as closely as possible to the microphone on the hearing aid. This will be at the top of your ear.
The hearing aid is turned on and off by opening and closing the battery compartment.
Replace batteries every 7-10 days.
Red markers in the battery compartment indicate the aid is for a right ear and blue markers indicate the hearing aid is for the left ear.
The tube that connects the earmould to the hearing aid should always be soft/ flexible. When the tubing becomes hard/less flexible it needs to be replaced as this affects the functioning of the hearing aid.
Please contact the audiology department on 0300 3038640 to get the tubes changed.
