Often there is a factor with deafness, be it partial or total and the condition being temporary or permanent in nature, that brings to the mind the role played by foreign bodies getting into the ear. On most occasions, these bodies are removed with the minimal of fuss and rarely do conditions take on such a hue that a more serious view of the matter needs to be taken.
The severity of the conditions caused by the insertion of the foreign bodies do depend a lot on the very nature of the body in question; the size, shape and in most instances the sharpness of the body. Very serious situations can indeed cause damage that is serious enough to cause even permanent loss of hearing.
Law Enforcing Agents and the Need to be Vigilant
Usually, the first set of people that are called to a scene of accident or occurrence is the law enforcement agents. They do in most instances get to perform the first action as the first aid and take the person affected for further treatment if the case so requires it. It goes without saying that the first aid provided must be able to isolate the damage if indeed it has been that severe.
The further treatment of cases of intrusion of foreign matter into the ear does depend a lot on the first couple of hours that immediately follow the injury and this is where the services rendered by the emergency treatment teams comes to be of significance. Most agents like the police and even the fire force personnel would be trained in the first aid practices and it is only proper that they are done so.

In case a medical attention is lacking or that it is not easily approachable, the next course of action would be to have the person handled by someone that has the training and know how at the disposal to bring effective relief to the condition.
The emergency folks have an important role in that they would be called to bring the doctors or the relevant professionals to the conditions that were present at the time of the accident. This is where professional training comes to play in helping put out as descriptive a narration as possible while at the same time leaving out the not so important bits of information.
The role of the first account comes into significance for the fact that in situations that need handling by agents like the insurers and the likes, this firsthand account would be the very starting point.
