Hair cells are the sensory receptors located within the organ of Corti on a thin basilar membrane in the cochlea of the inner ear.
Two years of interviews with the leading innovators in concert, theatre, and corporate production, all in one great book with a foreword by Bob McCarthy. Here is a collection of assembled wisdom and experience that I believe will open up your mind to how you can expand your role in the audio professional network. Today, one in five teens suffer from some form of hearing loss, a 31% increase since the mid-90s. After my ear drum burst following an airline flight, I suffered a loss of hearing in one ear and had ringing in that ear for several weeks.
While we can’t always prevent certain types of hearing damage, such as my ear drum bursting on that occasion, we definitely can prevent Noise Induced Hearing Loss. If you or you child is continually exposed to loud noise over time, the symptoms of NIHL will appear gradually.
The degree of hearing loss will increase over time as sounds may become distorted or muffled, eventually making it hard for the person to understand speech. For our kids, loud noise exposure often occurs at rock concerts and other types of recreational music and sporting events. If you have a girl, suggest that she simply keep her hair down covering her ears and no one else will notice the ear plugs.
As damaging as rock concerts are to teens’ hearing, another huge problem is the high volume they listen to music through earbuds and headphones. And make sure your kids aren’t sneaking earbuds into their ears while they go to sleep.
Go for walks together as a family and enjoy the quiet and subtle sounds of birds and nature. While the statistics are scary, remember that knowledge is power and that Noise Induced Hearing Loss is completely preventable.
Explain to your kids about the dangers of listening to loud music or games for extended periods of time and help them set limits.

In March 2001, the National Institutes of Health issued the following warning: "The number of Web sites offering health-related resources grows every day. In addition to offering a structured and comprehensive bibliography, this medical reference on noise-induced hearing loss will quickly direct you to resources and reliable information on the Internet, from the essentials to the most advanced areas of research. We talk about noise induced hearing loss, common hearing loss myths, and what you need to know to stay healthy and protect your most valuable asset.
As the damage occurs slowly over time, the person with NIHL may not even realize what is happening. While Tinnitus may subside over time, it can continue constantly or reoccur occasionally throughout your life. But I admit… it might be difficult to convince your teens to wear earplugs when they head off to a rock concert. Their ears are continually attached to devices blasting out music, movies, TV or the sounds of violent games. There is one type of headphone from Puro Sound Labs that limits the volume of their Child’s headphones to 85dB. The closer the sound source is to the delicate working of the inner ear, the more damage loud sound can do.
Without good attenuation, your child will crank up the volume to compensate for background noise. The majority of damage to teens hearing is due to listening to loud music for extended periods of time.
For true peace of mind, and to help get your kids on board, get them the Puro Sound BT2200 Studio Grade Children’s Bluetooth Headphones that limit the volume to a safe 85dB. Many sites provide valuable information, while others may have information that is unreliable or misleading." Furthermore, because of the rapid increase in Internet-based information, many hours can be wasted searching, selecting, and printing. It gives a complete medical dictionary covering hundreds of terms and expressions relating to noise-induced hearing loss.
First, you will not waste time searching the Internet while missing a lot of relevant information. Please download the latest version of the Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, or Windows Internet Explorer browser.

We also discuss vertigo, motion sickness, how to calculate your noise exposure risk, hearing loss rehabilitation, adult stem cell transplant hearing loss, and other alternatives to hearing aids.
Their constant use of earbuds and headphones listening to music and playing games on their smart phones, computers and TVs actually brings a huge risk of Noise Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL).
We need to understand what it is, what the risks are, and how we can protect our children’s hearing from damage. Various abstracts are reproduced to give you some of the latest official information available to date. I was used to regularly attending rock concerts and felt like the ridiculously loud volume of the music was part of the experience.
This book was created for medical professionals, students, and members of the general public who want to conduct medical research using the most advanced tools available and spending the least amount of time doing so. Finally, it provides information to users on how to update their knowledge using various Internet resources. Abundant guidance is given on how to obtain free-of-charge primary research results via the Internet. The book is designed for physicians, medical students preparing for Board examinations, medical researchers, and patients who want to become familiar with research dedicated to noise-induced hearing loss. For readers unfamiliar with the Internet, detailed instructions are offered on how to access electronic resources. For readers without access to Internet resources, a directory of medical libraries, that have or can locate references cited here, is given.
We hope these resources will prove useful to the widest possible audience seeking information on noise-induced hearing loss.
