Celebrate Safely

Summertime is fun, and celebrating the 4th of July is one of summertime's highlights. As you make preparations like buying food to barbecue with friends and family, choosing which fireworks to wow your neighbors with or perhaps which fireworks show to attend, please remember to gather hearing protection for you and the ones you love. It's such a simple thing to do, yet is often forgotten.

 

The best way to avoid overexposure to loud sounds is to wear earplugs or protective headphones (you can even wear both!) You can also distance yourself very far away from the explosion of fireworks, loud music or similar sounds. If you have changes in your hearing after events like these, you need to come in for a hearing test. Your hearing is so precious and it's our number one goal to protect it.


The 4th of July and fireworks can be very exciting, but it's important to realize that it can be dangerous to your hearing too. With the right precautions you, your friends and family can have a really great time without the fear of hearing loss.

 

March 3rd is World Hearing Day

Each year, the World Health Organization designates a day to focus on ear and hearing health. This year's campaign is called "Action For Hearing Loss: Make a Sound Investment"  It's meant to bring attention to the economic effects of hearing loss.

 

360 million people in the world live with disabling hearing loss, and up to 330 million people in the world suffer with chronic ear infections. Five out of every 1,000 children are born deaf or hard of hearing. The economic impact of hearing loss is felt worldwide even though the majority of those with hearing loss live in low- and middle-income parts of the world. Hearing loss affects communication which then has a large impact on education, employment and social and emotional health.

 

 

Many causes which lead to hearing loss can be prevented.  60% of all childhood hearing loss is preventable, and those who have hearing loss can reach their full potential with early detection, rehabilitation, and the use of assistive hearing devices. Education and empowerment are also key to helping those with hearing loss, and the great news is, they are cost effective!

 

 

The World Health Organization is calling for action to address hearing loss. They ask that decision makers around the world allocate resources to integrate ear and hearing care into health systems. Although most health systems in the United States offer hearing care many places in the world do not. That's why it's important to raise awareness among all sectors of society. (www.who.int)

Audiology is the science of hearing, balance and related disorders. The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association defines Audiologists in the following way:
