Protect Your Hearing: Don't Let Halloween Sounds Haunt You
Gradual hearing loss is more common, but it can happen suddenly as well. This is more likely to be the case when exposed to loud noise, which could happen during festive times of the year like Halloween. There's nothing wrong with having some spooktacular fun during the haunting season. However, it's just as important to be diligent about hearing care at any time of the year, and to take steps to protect your hearing.
What Is Noise-Reduced Hearing Loss?
Hearing loss potential is determined by exposure to sounds at certain noise levels, measured in decibels. Exposure to noise at the 90 decibel range, for example, can be tolerated for about eight hours. However, if the noise level goes up to 100 decibels, hearing damage can occur after just 15 minutes of exposure. What's more, studies suggest 15 percent of adults between the ages of 20 and 69 experience hearing loss related to noise and associated with leisurely activities. Such activities may include parties and other events related to Halloween.
How Can You Protect Your Hearing During Halloween Season?
The good news is you can safely enjoy the witchy wonders and other enjoyable aspects of Halloween without sacrificing your hearing. One way to do this is by covering your ears if you'll be at a loud haunted house, Halloween party, or Halloween-themed concert or event. You can do this by:
Placing ear molds in your ears
Wearing noise-canceling headphones if you'll be around loud noises for longer periods of time
Another way to protect your ears is to find ways to take a break from the louder sounds. You can do this by finding a quieter room, for example, if you're at a house party, or by going outside if you're at a noisy club. Even with haunted houses, it can be helpful to step away from the louder areas if you're experiencing hearing-related discomfort.
Know The Signs Of Noise-Induced Hearing Loss
One other step you can take to protect your hearing this Halloween is to know the signs suggesting you may have noise-induced hearing loss. These include:
Ear pain ears following exposure to excessive noise
Not being able to clearly hear or understand everything being said to you
Others around you saying you're talking too loud
Experiencing tinnitus, or a ringing or buzzing sound in your ears
If you don't already have underlying hearing issues, noise-induced hearing loss is often temporary. If it continues or gets worse, however, see your doctor or a hearing care specialist.
