Maria was born with a sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) of the 4th degree. This girl has heard neither of her parents’voice. When she was only 5 months old her parents noticed that she did not respond to their voices as well as the other sounds. They went to the clinic and the diagnosis appeared to be shocking. Maria had some special hearing aids installed but even having them she sometimes responds only to some loud noise.
People suffering from chronic and acute kidney failure need help! They live thanks to the apparatus used for undergoing the outpatient hemodialysis.
