Hearing Loss and Visual Impairment Quiz:


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The three barriers to care for visual impairment are: •Inability to see properly and visually sense surroundings - i.e. putting toothpaste on toothbrush. •Visual cues that would raise concern go undetected – i.e. caries, cancerous lesions. •Difficulty understanding and grasping oral hygiene instruction – i.e. cannot visually see the educators demonstrations.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The given statement is true because it accurately describes the three barriers to care for visual impairment. These barriers include the inability to see properly and visually sense surroundings, which can make simple tasks like putting toothpaste on a toothbrush difficult. Additionally, visual cues that would raise concern, such as caries or cancerous lesions, may go undetected. Finally, individuals with visual impairment may have difficulty understanding and grasping oral hygiene instruction if they cannot visually see the educator's demonstrations.

     A visual impairment is defined as:

    • A.

      A loss of sight without apparent organic pathology.

    • B.

      A partial or total loss of sight without pathology of the eye; caused by disease of the optic nerve or retina or brain.

    • C.

      A visual defect in which objects appear to have a yellowish hue.

    Correct Answer
    B. A partial or total loss of sight without pathology of the eye; caused by disease of the optic nerve or retina or brain.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "A partial or total loss of sight without pathology of the eye; caused by disease of the optic nerve or retina or brain." This answer accurately describes a visual impairment as a loss of sight that is not caused by any physical damage or disease in the eye, but rather by issues with the optic nerve, retina, or brain. This definition helps differentiate visual impairments from other types of vision problems that may have a specific pathology or cause.

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because a hearing impairment can occur at any point along the pathway of sound conduction, including the outer ear, eardrum, and middle ear. This means that there can be issues with the reception and transmission of sound waves, leading to difficulties in hearing.

    Educational care considerations for a dental hygienist treating a client with a hearing impairment are:

    • A.

      Use imagery and give thorough visual explanations of dental health education and oral health instruction so the client can understand.

    • B.

      Pay attention to their body language to gauge their comfort and comprehension level.

    • C.

      If you know sign language, communicate directly to the client in this way; if the client has brought an interpreter, communicate by talking to both individuals, don’t be discouraged when the client is looking at the interpreter and not at you

    • D.

      Explain what you are doing before you do it: for example, let the client hear the slow speed before it is suddenly in their mouth; tell the client you are going to feel their face and neck before doing so.

    • E.

      Show enthusiasm in your face and body language, as you would show in your voice: use gestures, eye contact and facial expressions.

Using imagery and visual explanations can help the client understand dental health education, paying attention to body language can help gauge their comfort and comprehension level, communicating directly in sign language or through an interpreter can facilitate effective communication, explaining procedures before performing them can help alleviate anxiety, and showing enthusiasm through facial expressions and body language can create a positive and welcoming environment.
