Here we have a graphic that brilliantly displays the effects of hearing loss and how to cope with it. The graphic points out that the four main ways people lose their ears are through listening to loud music, spending too much time in an industrial work place with power drills and the like, being exposed to the sounds of a racetrack, and being exposed to the sounds of guns firing for long periods of time. So, how do you know if your ears are being damaged? Well, if someone is standing three feet away from you, but you cannot hear the words coming out of their mouth, then odds are that you are probably in a situation where the noise level is dangerous.
And if you are in a situation like this, you should probably extricate yourself immediately because, as the graphic reveals, once your inner ear hair cells are gone, they don’t come back. We have 15,000 hair cells, but they can deteriorate rapidly if people consistently place themselves in situations where hazardous noise is present. Over 50 million Americans suffer from a disease called Tinnitus, which is a non-stop ringing in the ears that results from prolonged exposure to loud sounds.
The right bar of the graphic discusses how to protect your ears. Earplugs and earmuffs are the most common solutions. Let’s get to the grading segment now.
This graphic is a feast for the eyes. Great use of colors and an interesting artistic choice to put an ear in the center of the graphic and have the facts about decimal levels spring from that centerpiece.
