  1. NOISE DESTROYS Tips on protecting your hearing

  2. Noise is everywhere • At home

  3. At Work At work….

  4. At play…..

  5. All sounds don’t hurt your ears….. • What matters is…. • HOW LOUD • And HOW LONG

  6. Overexposure to noise damages tiny nerve endings inside the ear

  7. Damage begins in the HIGH pitch region • ABOVE the speech frequencies

  8. As the damage progresses… • It will work its way down to eventually affect the speech frequencies

  9. By the time you begin to notice the hearing loss, • You have a VERY WELL DEVELOPED hearing loss

  10. SO…….. • It sneaks up on you…you don’t know you have it until you have a lot of it!

  11. Noise induced hearing loss affects the QUALITY of the sound Rather than the LOUDNESS If you think of your ear like a stereo, it is like fiddling with the equalizer NOT like turning down the volume

  12. Turning it up may make it LOUDER • BUT… it will not make it CLEARER • Kind of like turning up the volume on a blown speaker…it will still sound bad

  13. Hearing aids help but do NOT cure • Hearing aids are amplifiers, the problem with noise induced hearing loss is not loudness but CLARITY.

  14. The KEY thing is • PROTECTION and PREVENTION

  15. May is BETTER HEARING AND SPEECH month PROTECT YOUR HEARING!!! You only have one set of ears that must last you a LIFETIME! Don’t miss out on the sounds of life!
