Hearing Protection

Some Tips on hearing Protection, as an Audiologist.

We all know that huge is not necessarily better. There is no reason why this would not be any different for sounds. Louder

does not inevitably mean neater sound quality. Decent hearing protection is critical to keeping the nerves in your auricles

satisfying and able to channel sound signals through the nerve nerve tracts to your head so you can better visualize and delight

the reality around you.

Made up of three parts: the outmost ear, the intermediate ear, and the interior ear, the ear transforms shakings in the air into

electrical pulsations that are, in turn, passed or broadcasted to the mind as signals through the neuronic nerve tracts from the

ear. Harm to any of the pieces of the ear can result in hearing disablement and/or hearing loss.

When we feel the uncomfortable sensation of cold we take the necessary measures to protect our outer ears with earmuffs,

hats, and scarves in the winter to prevent frostbite. It is just as important to remember to protect our inner ears as well to

prevent nerve damage that can cause permanent hearing loss.

Have you ever seen a dog whine, put his head down, and cover his ears with his paws when there is a loud, high-pitched

noise? A one-year-old child will do almost the same thing when exposed to a loud noise. The nipper automatically covers his

spikes with his hands. These are spontaneous self-defense mechanisms kicking in. They are protecting their ears from a

situation that is potentially detrimental.

Getting older is generally associated with getting wiser and therefore we at times find it hard to listen to anyone else around

us. But that does not nullify the importance of them. We sometimes need to relearn the basic principle of self-preservation.

Remembering that overly loud noises set off the impetus to muffle or deflect out the sound is a clear signal that you need to

"cover your ears".
Hearing protection is not limited just to the sound muffling headsets like the kind you see at a firing range. There are a

assortment of ways to protect your ears. Available are ear plugs for bathers, heavy-duty ear plugs for safety in the workplace,

special musician's ear plugs, and ear plugs made especially for youngsters, just to name a few. Whatever the situation may

be that needs loud sounds or other possible events that may cause trauma to the inner ear and its nerves, there are protection

devices developed specifically for that instance.

Looking after your ears is so important. Most people appear to be unaware that once damage has been caused to your ears it

is not actualyl reversible. Infact even with modern technolgy there is nothing that can bring back your hearing. Coupled with

the fact on how easy it is to actually cause permnanat damage it essential that we take good care of our hearing Protecting

your ears and your hearing ensures that you keep this important sense healthy and intact. Contact a health professional

dealing in hearing to choose the proper hearing protection needed.
