Excerpt from Helps to Hear
It is not the intention to consider either the pathol ogy or-the therapeutics of deafness, but to discuss the subject entirely, as an obstruction to be overcome by mechanical appliances, as by an ear trumpet, etc. N ot withstanding this it would be very unwise as well as unscientific to advise the use of an ear trumpet, or other appliances to aid defective hearing, before making a careful examination of the patient to deter mine whether it is a suitable case, for the condition may be one, which depends upon some obstruction or complication, which can readily be removed. In such a case treatment should be advised, which point will be considered farther on.
