How to Destroy Your Ears Slowly.

Source: Rockville, MD: American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA). 200x. (poster). Availability: Available from American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA). Product Sales, 10801 Rockville Pike, Rockville, MD 20852. (888) 498-6699. TTY (301) 897-0157. Website: www.asha.org. PRICE: $8 for members; $12 for nonmembers, plus shipping and handling. Language: English. Abstract: This poster, with the eye catching headline, 'How to Destroy Your Ears Slowly,' emphasizes the importance of preventing noise induced hearing loss (NIHL). The poster presents basic information about the potential impact of everyday activities, such as the use of power tools, loud music, and workplace noise, on one's hearing. The poster emphasizes that if one has to raise one's voice to be heard, or cannot hear a person who is two feet away, then the noise levels present are hazardous. And, consequently, hearing is at risk. The poster also notes that a certified audiologist can measure sound levels, evaluate hearing, and recommend potential treatment including professionally fitted hearing protection. The poster text concludes with the contact information for the American Speech Language Hearing Association (ASHA). The poster is illustrated with full color photographs of a power drill, a lawnmower, a violin, a hair dryer, and a pair of earphones. Subject Category: Hearing.

Loss.

Source: Boston, MA: Massachusetts Commission for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (MCDHH). 200x. [2 p.]. Availability: Available from Massachusetts Commission for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (MCDHH). 210 South Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02111-2725. (800) 882-1155 or (617) 695-7500. TTY/TDD (800) 530- 7570 or (617) 695-7600. Fax: (617) 695-7599. Website: www.mcdhh.state.ma.us. PRICE: Single copy free. Language: English. Abstract: This brochure, produced by the Massachusetts Commission for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (MCDHH), was developed for professionals caring for people with or at risk of developing a hearing loss. Hearing professionals need to be aware of the signs, symptoms, or behaviors of a hearing loss in order to make a proper diagnosis and referral. The brochure stresses that undiagnosed hearing loss has a high cost to individuals, families, and society. Even people with mild hearing loss feel the impact in their ability to communicate effectively, particularly in the presence of background noise. They report feeling isolated, which causes stress. Hearing loss can cause even the most conscientious patient to misunderstand physician's instructions, which can result in serious health problems. The brochure reviews the provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and professional compliance requirements, offers strategies to undertake when there is suspicion of a hearing loss, and reviews the issue of hidden hearing loss in children. The brochure also notes that some medications can cause hearing loss and lists the major drug groups that are implicated. The brochure concludes with a list of the signs, symptoms, and behaviors that may signal a hearing loss. Subject Category: Hearing. Descriptors: Hearing Loss. Communication Strategies. Interpersonal Relations. Psychosocial Factors. Professional-Patient Relations. Symptoms. Delivery of Health Care. Communication Disorders. Hearing Aids. Listening Skills. Speechreading. Family.
