  • Noise Exposure in Young Children and Teens
    Sound levels are measured in decibels dB the higher the decibel number the louder the sound noise Research has shown that sounds louder than 85 dB can cause permanent hearing loss Most of the hearing loss caused by exposure to loud sounds can happen very slowly and take years to be detected by the person who has it or the person s family and friends Young children One of the most common ways young children are exposed to excessive noise is via noisy toys Many toys are designed to be played at a distance from the body but a young child will bring the toy close to his her face and ears By bringing the toy closer to his her ears the resulting sound is louder and therefore more damaging Some toys can reach 100dB as loud as a snowmobile or more if placed close to the ear Tweens and Teens Research has shown that there has been an increase in hearing loss in adolescents during the past three decades What is even more frightening is that a loss of hearing may go undetected for many years after chronic exposure to high levels of noise This means that the hearing loss caused by the noise teenagers are exposing themselves to today might not surface for many years Potential sources of loud noise include playing a musical instrument attending concerts and using personal headphones to listen to music or games as well as lawn mowing hunting or target shooting Teenagers should be advised to limit the duration and intensity of sound exposure or noisy activities such as concert going or playing in a band and to use hearing protection whenever engaged in these activities How can I tell if I m listening to dangerous noise levels You are listening to dangerously loud sounds noise if You must raise your voice to be heard even when you re 2 3 feet from the person You can t hear or understand someone 3 feet away from you You need to take your ear buds headphones off in order to hear what is being said to you unless they are noise canceling headphones You are listening to music or a game at more than 50 percent half of the maximum volume Speech around you sounds muffled or dull after you leave the noisy area You have pain or ringing in your ears tinnitus after exposure to noise What can I do The best option is to avoid the loud sounds or noise whenever possible If that is not possible use hearing protection like earplugs and or earmuffs Cotton will not protect your hearing If you don t have any hearing protection available try to limit the amount of time you or your child is exposed to the loud sound When purchasing toys for infants look for ones with a volume control or an off on button Limit the amount of time that children are exposed to sound or remove the batteries from young children

  • Patient and Parent Education
    Sound waves bounce off the eardrum causing a vibration The MIDDLE EAR is an air filled space with the eardrum on one side and the oval window on the other There are three bones in the middle ear that form a sort of bridge between the eardrum and the oval window When the eardrum vibrates this vibration is transferred via these bones to the oval window The vibration then is transferred via the oval window to the fluid in the inner ear Movement of the fluid in the INNER EAR causes the hair cells in the inner ear to send electrical signals up the auditory nerve to the brain The brain processes these electrical signals and we hear the sound Types of Hearing Loss Problems with sound traveling via the outer or middle ear result in what we call a CONDUCTIVE HEARING LOSS Most of these conditions can be medically treated Some of the most common factors that result in a problem in the outer or middle ear that result in a hearing loss include Excessive amount of ear wax Fluid or infection in the middle ear Hole or perforation in the eardrum Deformity of the outer or middle ear Breakage or fixation of the bones in the middle ear Foreign body in the ear canal Growth in the ear canal exostosis or middle ear cholesteatoma Issues with sounds traveling in the inner ear are called SENSORINEURAL HEARING LOSS For the most part we can treat the problem via a hearing aid or cochlear implant but we can t fix the problem medically For sensorineural hearing losses in children we often try to determine if the loss was congenital meaning present at birth or acquired at a later age The most common reasons for a child having a CONGENITAL hearing
