    Nhờ cả nhà dịch giúp đoạn này với ạ.
    Sudden hearing loss (SHL) is a frightening symptom that
    often prompts an urgent or emergent visit to a clinician.
    This guideline update focuses on sudden sensorineural hear-ing loss (SSNHL), the majority of which is idiopathic and
    which, if not recognized and managed promptly, may result
    in persistent hearing loss and tinnitus and reduced patient
    quality of life.
