National Save Your Hearing Day - May 31

NATIONAL SAVE YOUR HEARING DAY

Each May 31st, National Save Your Hearing Day is observed.   On this day, it is important to take some time to learn about ways to protect your hearing and that of your family.   Our hearing is vital and there are ways that hearing loss can be avoidable.

There are various reasons from which hearing loss can be the result, some of which include:

  • Age
  • Noise
  • Genetic
  • Illness
  • Neurological Disorders
  • Medications
  • Chemicals
  • Physical Trauma
  • Neurobiological Factors

It is estimated that half of the cases of hearing impairment and deafness are preventable.  There are many preventative strategies that are effective including: immunization against rubella to reduce congenital infections, immunization against H. influenza and S. pneumonia to reduce cases of middle ear infections, and avoiding or protecting against excessive noise exposure.

Finding and utilizing the available education on the perils of hazardous noise exposure will increase your awareness in the important need of hearing protection.
