    An audiologist can discuss with you the potential benefits of a hearing aid and fit you with a device. Acute acoustic trauma[ edit ] Several clinical trials have been conducted to treat temporary NIHL occurring after a traumatic noise event, such as a gunshot or firework. Excessive exposure to noise increases the risk of tinnitus. Tens of millions of Americans, including 12 percent to 15 percent of school-age children, already have permanent hearing loss caused by the everyday noise that we take for granted as a fact of life.

    Meningitis may damage the auditory nerve or the cochlea. There are over identified chemical agents that may affect hearing on temporarily or permanent basis. Bouton notes that the noise level inside Allen Fieldhouse at the University of Kansas often exceeds that of a chain saw. Many countries now have mandatory newborn hearing tests, which tests the hearing when a baby is born. Hearing-related side effects from these antibiotics are most common in people who have kidney disease or who already have ear or hearing problems. It reduces the inflammation caused by the acoustic trauma, which would cause subsequent damages to hair cells.

Synaptic damages, by excitotoxicity. Many construction workers have the benefit of working outside, which can help alleviate the impact of noisy machinery.

Principles and measures for engineering noise control, as well as hearing conservation programmes and their management, are presented, always placing control of noise at the source in the center of any preventive strategy.

Meningitis may damage the auditory nerve or the cochlea. Seidman, the director of otolaryngology at Henry Ford West Bloomfield Hospital in Michigan, told me to use ear plugs when I dry my hair or mow my lawn with a gas-powered mower, and to cover my ears when an emergency vehicle passes with siren blasting.
