American Hearing & Balance Reminds Los Angeles-Area Residents to Use Hearing Protection When Enjoying Fireworks

  1. 1. PRWeb ebooks - Another online visibility tool from PRWeb American Hearing & Balance Reminds Los Angeles-Area Residents to Use Hearing Protection When Enjoying Fireworks American Hearing & Balance encourages families to be safe when enjoying Fourth of July fireworks by packing ear protection for each family member and keeping a safe distance. Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 30, 2014 -- As families get ready to enjoy fireworks shows on July 4th, American Hearing & Balance would like to remind Los Angeles-area residents that it only takes a few simple actions to prevent lifelong hearing problems. We all know that fireworks are loud, but readers may be surprised to learn just how loud. Fireworks can reach decibels levels of 120 to 140. For noises this loud, the American Academy of Audiology lists the safe exposure time as zero minutes. Essentially, that statement means that hearing protection is a necessity to avoid noise-related hearing damage. The decibels levels experienced by each individual attending a fireworks show vary as a function of distance and age. Children experience fireworks as louder than adults. Infants experience them the loudest of all. This is because they have narrower ear canals. Even if parents feel that they are sitting far enough away from the show that the noise level is appropriate for them, they need to bring along ear protection for the youngsters. To keep ears safe on the 4th and prevent short-term and long-term hearing damage, follow these simple tips. • Sit at least 500 feet from where the fireworks are launched. Fireworks noise for those 800 feet away ranges from 88 to 126 dB, but from 10 feet away, it’s 155 dB! • Your environment is too noisy if you have to shout to be heard by someone standing next to you. • Pack ear protection for every member of the family. Ear plugs can be obtained from sporting goods stores and drug stores for a few dollars. (These plugs may be too big or children under age 7 or 8, so for younger ears consider child-size earmuffs. Ear protection must fit properly to work.) • If you experience pain, ringing or buzzing in your ears, move farther away. About Dr. Keith Michaels, Au.D.
