What Are the Signs of a Noise Induced Hearing Loss

Noise is one of the most common causes of hearing loss, and one of the most common occupational illnesses in the United States. A single shotgun blast, experienced at close range, may permanently damage  hearing instantaneously. Repeated exposures to loud machinery may, over many months and years, present serious risks to  hearing. According to the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD), ten million Americans have already suffered irreversible hearing damage from noise, and thirty million more are exposed to dangerous noise levels each day.

Noise induced hearing loss develops gradually so that people may lose a significant amount of hearing before becoming aware of its presence.What most people do not realize is that the noise does not need to be painful in order to cause permanent damage. During the early stages, sufferers often report having to turn up the volume on the TV or have difficulty understanding speech in groups or in the presence of background noise. As the hearing loss worsens, it becomes difficult to understand normal conversation even in quiet, one-on-one situations. The individual may not be aware of the high frequency hearing loss caused by noise exposure, but it can be detected with a hearing test. In fact, early identification is important in order to recognize the presence of hearing loss and then take steps to prevent further hearing loss.

Some of the warning signs of the presence of or exposure to hazardous noise are as follows:

  • You can’t hear someone three feet away
  • You have pain in your ears after leaving a noisy area
  • You hear ringing or buzzing (tinnitus) in your ears immediately after exposure to noise
  • You suddenly have difficulty understanding speech after exposure to noise; you can hear people talking, but you cannot understand them.

  2. Brian you are right to be encouraged. I think there are many agents that would not threaten their reputation to grab a commission. There are many agents building a professional practice that are not afraid to tell the truth and not afraid of discussing their value for money. I would not rely on brokers to lead the way here any real change comes from the ground up.Best,Don Stewart

  3. I have taken notice that in video cameras, unique detectors help to aim automatically. The particular sensors regarding some video cameras change in in the area of contrast, while others make use of a beam associated with infra-red (IR) light, particularly in low lighting. Higher specs cameras often use a mix of both devices and probably have Face Priority AF where the digicam can ‘See’ some sort of face and concentrate only on that.

  7. Israel has made itself into an isolated militant supremacis­t theocracy/ethnocracy with ICBM nukes; a very real and rapidly increasing threat to itself and to the whole entire world. A pariah among nations. Justice demands that UN and NATO impose resolution just as involuntary, disruptive and humiliating to Israel as Israel has wreaked upon occupied Palestine for generations. The Jewish State have to be made to recognize an armed Palestine with externally enforced autonomy, eviction of all settlers, true contiguity encompassing Gaza, the West Bank and Jerusalem together, neither pinched nor parceled, and pay punitive reparations.

I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
