One in 8 Indians has a hearing loss that affects his ability to understand normal speech. Excessive noise ( loud sound) exposure is the most common cause of hearing loss.

Can Noise Really Hurt Ears?

Yes. Noise can be dangerous.. If it is loud enough and lasts long enough, it can damage the hearing.

The damage caused by noise, called sensorineuralhearingloss or nerve loss, can be caused by several factors other than noise, but noise-induced hearing loss can be reduced or prevented altogether and there is -no medicine and no surgery for it. Only a hearing aid-can help.


Can the ears used to loud sounds?

No. lf you think you have grown used to a loud noise, it probably has damaged your ears.


How Does the Ear Work?

he ear has three main parts: the outer, middle, and inner ear. The outer ear opens into the ear canal. The eardrum separates the ear canal from the middle ear. Small bones and air in the middle ear help transfer sound to the inner ear. The inner ear contains the auditory (hearing) nerve, which leads to the brain.

Small bones and air in the middle ear help transfer sound to the inner ear. The inner ear contains the auditory (hearing) nerve, which leads to the brain.

When noise is too loud, it begins to kill the nerve endings in the inner ear. As the exposure time to loud noise increases, more and more nerve endings are destroyed. As the number of nerve endings decreases, so does the hearing. There is no way to restore life to dead nerve endings; the damage is permanent.
