Percentage of hearing loss

I agree with dbrown on this issue.  If we had a linear hearing system, 
then perhaps a % scale would be appropriate.   However, it has been my 
experience that a % of hearing loss is more often misleading than not to 
the patient.  Spend extra time counselling the patient in layman terms, 
making sure they understand the potential effect of their particular 
hearing loss on their daily lives.
