March 3 is celebrated around the world for Ear and Hearing Health Day. Especially in this case, the chief otolaryngologist of the Ural Federal District and the best ENT of Russia Hiir Abdulkerimov told why loud sound from headphones is compared to the roar of a jet, how many more deaf patients become each year and how they are helped in our region.
– Almost every second now wears headphones, listening to loud music. How safe is it for health?
– I noticed this fashion trend, especially among young people. They make the sound in the headphones at full volume and so allegedly distracted from everything. Many young people suffer from hearing loss. Every year there are 1.5-2% more such patients, so there are hearing aids and operations to restore hearing.
