NATIONAL SAVE YOUR HEARING DAY
Each May 31st, National Save Your Hearing Day is observed. It is important to take some time to learn ways to protect your hearing and that of your family. Our hearing is vital, and there are ways that hearing loss can be avoidable.
There are various reasons from which hearing loss can be the result, some of which include:
- Neurological Disorders
- Physical Trauma
- Neurobiological Factors
It is estimated half of the cases of hearing impairment and deafness are preventable. There are many effective, preventative strategies including immunization against rubella to reduce congenital infections, immunization against H. influenza and S. pneumonia to reduce cases of middle ear infections, and avoiding or protecting against excessive noise exposure.
