MMWR: Announcement: National Protect Your Hearing Month — October 2016

Thursday, October 6, 2016   (0 Comments)

October is National Protect Your Hearing Month, a time to raise awareness about the causes and prevention of noise-induced hearing loss. Noise-induced hearing loss results from sounds in the environment that are too loud and can damage sensitive structures in the inner ear, even with a brief exposure. This type of hearing loss can result from occupational noise exposures, leisure activities such as sporting events or concerts, or use of personal listening devices. Noise-induced hearing loss is permanent and cannot be reversed (1).
