As we all know, hearing will gradually deteriorate with age. But nowadays, with the change of life pressure and habits, young people have hearing loss examples everywhere. According to media reports, otolaryngology experts said,The number of hearing-impaired patients is increasing year by year, and the average age of patients is also decreasing year by year.
Experts say that the number of hearing-impaired patients is increasing year by year, and about two out of 10,000 people experience hearing loss every year. In addition, the average age of tinnitus and deafness patients is also decreasing year by year.
The reason why young people suddenly experience tinnitus and hearing loss is due to lifestyle habits and psychological pressure.Common factors include staying up late to listen to music, long-term wearing of poor-quality headphones, and listening to some excessively loud songs.
The expert once encountered a 14-year-old female patient with noise-induced deafness.When I came to see the doctor, I had missed the best period of medical treatment, and an irreversible noise-induced deafness was formed.
The reason for the girl’s noise-induced deafness is that the girl wears headphones for a long time. Due to the high academic pressure, girls are used to listening to music with earphones when studying in the house, thinking that this helps to relax their mood.
However, wearing earphones for a long time will cause the earphones to rub against the external auditory canal and form an inflammation of the external auditory canal in the closed space, causing hearing loss. Secondly, because the sound from the earphone sometimes does not meet the health standard, it will eventually form noise-induced deafness invisibly for a long time.
Experts pointed out thatIf the ears do not rest well for a long time, it will reflexively cause the inner ear microvascular spasm and cause hearing loss. Therefore, wearing headphones for a long time will unknowingly damage hearing and cause noise-induced deafness.In children and adolescents, once hearing loss occurs, attention should be paid to seeking medical treatment and treatment in time.
It is understood that noise-induced deafness is a slow, progressive sensory deafness that occurs due to long-term hearing effects caused by noise. The early manifestation is auditory fatigue, which can gradually recover after leaving the noise environment, but it is difficult to recover after a long period of time. deaf.
The main symptoms are progressive hearing loss and tinnitus. Early hearing loss is at 4,000 Hz. Therefore, it has no obvious effect on ordinary speech and is only found in audiometer examinations.
In the future, hearing impairment gradually develops towards high and low frequencies, and eventually generally declines. Hearing impaired at this time, severe cases can be completely deaf. Tinnitus and deafness can occur at the same time or separately, and are often high-pitched tinnitus.
