The Doctors discuss an alarming report from Brigham and Woman’s Hospital, an affiliate of Harvard, that found that 1 out of every 5 teenagers today has some form of hearing loss.
Half of 12 to 35-year-olds have been exposed to dangerous levels of noise from personal headphones. ER physician Dr. Travis says the level of noise these headphones project, up to 110 decimals, is the same as putting a chainsaw right up against your ear!
Dr. Travis says studies have compared hearing tests of teens who grew up with Walkmans in the 80s to kids in around 2005 with iPods, and hearing loss has jumped over 30% in that time frame!
Sensory neural hearing loss means the inner ear nerve endings go. Plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon warns that those nerve endings don’t regrow so we have to protect them. As we age we naturally lose our hearing but what many people today are experiencing is a noise-induced hearing loss. Dr. Travis adds that even a one-time event like a loud concert can affect hearing loss.
He also says most kids developing hearing loss aren’t even aware of it which scares him! Dr. Ordon shares a CDC study found that 25% of the test group didn’t even realize they had lost their hearing.
Dr. Travis suggests using noise-canceling headphones which allow you to block out other noise without having to raise the volume as much. Dr. Ordon recommends using 60% max of the volume and not using headphones for more than an hour at a time. Additionally, Dr. Ordon recommends that you use earplugs if you are around loud noises.
