Prevent hearing loss by protecting your hearing now!

October is hearing protection awareness month. By now most of us are aware that we should protect our hearing when we are working around loud noise, such as with careers in construction or the Military. But, work isn’t the only place we can be exposed to damaging noise. We should also be thinking about hearing protection during loud leisure activities and working around the home.

Noise from concerts can reach damaging levels quickly and leave us with permanent hearing loss and tinnitus (ringing in the ears). Hearing protection should be used at concerts, sporting events, and activities where there is a risk of loud noise such as hunting, motor biking, and snowmobiling. Other sources of noise we should be aware of include common household items such as blenders, vacuum cleaners, lawn mowers, and power tools.

Foam plugs offer a quick and easy solution to most of these situations. Think of your lifestyle. If you are around noise often, custom hearing protection offers the most comfortable and effective protection.

Making family gatherings easier for those with hearing impairment

Thanksgiving is nearly here and with it come family gatherings and time spent with loved ones. For people with hearing loss these gatherings can present a major challenge. Having the entire family around the dinner table can be a very noisy affair. Anyone with hearing loss will likely tell you that trying to follow a conversation in the presence of background noise is extremely difficult. Fortunately there are some things you can do to make family gatherings a little easier for hearing impaired individuals:

  • Get the attention of your hearing-impaired family member before speaking to them.
  • Make sure the lighting is good and speak face-to-face at a regular tone.
  • Many hearing-impaired individuals rely on lip reading to follow the conversation. Try to keep your face visible when speaking.
  • If you are asked to repeat yourself try rephrasing your comment as it may be easier for your hearing impaired family member to hear some words or sounds better than others.
  • Try not to have music or other sources of noise during your family gathering. The more noise the more challenging it will be for someone with hearing loss to follow the conversation.
  • If you’re dining out, try to choose a quiet restaurant and sit as far as possible from noisy spots like the front door or kitchen.

If you or someone you know suffers from hearing loss please contact Accurate Hearing:

‘Shark Tank’ star on how hearing aids changed his life

Daymond John is the founder and CEO of fashion brand FUBU and star of the reality TV series ‘Shark Tank.’ He also has hearing loss which he attributes to noise exposure from years of listening to loud music while growing up.

He struggled for years, thinking people were mumbling or not speaking loud enough. Then he tried hearing aids and said the experience was like night and day. He currently wears Starkey HALO wireless hearing aids which allow him to stream audio from his phone directly to his hearing aids. He is also able to set preferences for specific places like his favorite restaurant, which the hearing aid remembers and adjusts accordingly whenever he goes back.

Daymond, like many, didn’t want to try hearing aids at first, but once he heard the difference they made he wouldn’t go back.

Is there relief for tinnitus?

Tinnitus is the perception of a noise such as ringing or buzzing in the ears and affects about 1 in 5 people. It is rarely a sign of something serious, but can be quite bothersome. While there is no cure, there are ways to find relief.

Before seeking treatment make sure to have your ears and hearing thoroughly checked. Sometimes tinnitus can be caused by blockage from wax or infection. When these conditions are cleared up the tinnitus may go away. However, more often tinnitus is caused by hearing loss and is permanent in nature.

So what can be done to cope with permanent tinnitus? If the tinnitus as mild, avoiding silence can be very effective, as it is much more noticeable when there is no other noise around. The use of soft background sound such as music or a fan is often enough to mask the tinnitus so that it is no longer heard. For more severe cases there are masking devices that produce a variety of sounds from white noise to nature sounds. On many of these devices the level and tone can be adjusted to match the tinnitus.

If there is hearing loss, hearing aids will help. Simply reintroducing the sounds you are missing may be enough to mask the tinnitus. For more severe cases some hearing aids come with built in maskers.

It is also important to avoid loud noise as this can aggravate tinnitus. Reducing stimulants such as nicotine and caffeine can, in some cases, reduce the severity of tinnitus. These stimulants, as well as alcohol, can change blood flow and pressure, and the inner ear is very sensitive to these changes. Other important factors include fatigue and stress. Both can exacerbate tinnitus.

Summer is here: a reminder to protect your hearing

Summer is here. For many that means days full of outdoor activities: from concerts, to festivals, to parades, or may maybe work in the yard. All of these activities have the potential to damage our hearing.

For example, sound at concerts or festivals with live music can easily reach over 100 decibels, well over the limit for safe hearing. Many celebrations such as parades include marching bands, sirens, and horns, all of which can damage our hearing. We should also consider our hearing while doing yard work that includes noisy equipment such as lawn mowers.

So, should you avoid these situations? No. Part of the fun of summer is getting out and enjoying the festivities or simply working in the yard. Just remember to think about your hearing. If you are going to be in situations that involve loud noise, such as those mentioned, bring along some hearing protection. It can be as simple as over the counter foam plugs. For maximum protection ask your hearing care professional about custom noise and music plugs.

For more information on how to have fun and safely protect your hearing please feel free to contact Accurate Hearing at one of our three locations:
