At all stages of life, good listening and communication are very important.
Hearing loss (and related ear diseases) can be avoided through preventive measures, such as prevention of excessive sound, good ear care practices and immunization.
How is your listening?
According to the latest report of the World Health Organization (WTO), more than 5% of the world's population, or 466 million people, suffer from hearing loss, including 432 million adults and 34 million children.
How did "ear day" come about?
"Ear day" was first proposed by our country. However, due to the limitations of economic conditions and technical ability, the number of new deaf children can only reach 20000 per year. Therefore, in addition to taking necessary rehabilitation measures, it is a very important work to actively carry out prevention, prevent the occurrence of deafness and control the number of newborn deaf children.
What is the harm of hearing loss?
Hearing loss will affect the communication between patients and others. Over a long period of time, patients will be isolated, slow in hearing response, slow in brain thinking, and affect the overall balanced development of the central nervous system. Hearing will become more and more slow, and the ability of speech expression will decline sharply. In severe cases, the risk of depression will increase. For children, hearing loss will delay their speech intelligence development and affect their normal learning and life.
- If found in time, and seek the right intervention, hearing impairment (and related ear diseases) can be solved.
- People at risk of hearing impairment should have their hearing checked regularly
- People with hearing loss (and associated ear diseases) should seek intervention advice from health care providers.
"Screening" usually refers to what we know about neonatal hearing screening. With the extensive development of newborn hearing screening in China, the detection rate of deaf children is also increasing, especially in some developed areas. Early detection, early diagnosis and early intervention can put an end to the traditional phenomenon of "ten deaf and nine dumb". For deaf children, the first time diagnosis and timely accurate and appropriate hearing intervention can greatly reduce the impact of hearing loss on their life, learning, employment and social life. It plays an extremely important role in their normal social life when they grow up.
The intervention of hearing aids or cochlear implants is an effective intervention to help hearing loss patients hear again, and rehabilitation is an important means to help hearing loss patients return to normal social life. Rehabilitation not only refers to the rehabilitation of children with hearing loss, but also includes adults and the elderly. At present, our country pays more attention to the rehabilitation of hearing-impaired children, but there are few schools and institutions for adults and the elderly. Some patients with severe hearing loss and long-term hearing loss have weak auditory and speech ability. General adaptation and rehabilitation may not achieve the expected effect in a short time, so these patients will have negative emotions, and even give up wearing. At this time, if there is a professional hearing rehabilitation teacher to help TA face these difficulties and solve these problems, the utilization rate and efficiency of hearing aids will be higher, and more people will be helped.
Communication is essential for everyone, whether it is verbal communication, or text communication on mobile phones and computers, or even sign language and writing communication. We advocate good and effective communication, and the premise of smooth communication is good listening. Therefore, once hearing loss is found, timely and effective intervention should be carried out in order to obtain good hearing and communicate more smoothly.
