Because hearing loss usually cannot be reversed, preventative care is really the only way to protect your ability to hear. Noise-induced hearing loss is one of the most common types of loss, and scientists are working on a way to block the sound receptors in the ear that are responsible for it, preventing them from transmitting noise information to the brain. This procedure, referred to as “chemical earmuffs,” keeps the receptors from becoming damaged without muffling sound. Currently, development is still in the early stages, but the goal is to create a hearing protection drug that can be taken by people commonly exposed to excessive noise, such as soldiers and construction workers, before exposure occurs.
All too often we take our hearing for granted, forgetting to protect it from today’s busy, noisy world. However, hearing protection is extremely importation for anyone who regularly spends time in high-noise environments. Until science catches up with innovations like “chemical earmuffs” and other advances, wearing earplugs to safeguard against loud noise and keeping headphones at a reasonable volume levels are your best bet to avoid noise-induced hearing loss. If you are concerned about your hearing, schedule an appointment with a hearing aid specialist at ABSOLUTE HEARING SOLUTIONS.
P.S. Trials to develop a drug that can prevent noise-induced hearing loss has shown promising results laboratories, but human trials are still a long way off.
