8 Signs That You Need Your Hearing Checked

Posted by Advanced Specialty Care on Jul 12, 2019 3:05:06 PM

Hearing loss is a very common problem affecting nearly 40 million people of all ages and when left untreated, it can have a substantial impact on a person's overall well being and health.

The ability to hear contributes to personal safety, social and emotional well being, independence and more. In fact, studies have shown that untreated hearing loss has been linked to depression, stress, memory issues along with other social and medical conditions.

There are many factors that can cause or contribute to hearing loss and they range from aging, genetics, medications, medical conditions such as heart disease and diabetes to exposure to loud noises especially for construction workers, police officers, firefighters, armed forces and musicians. And since hearing changes often happen slowly, you may be experiencing hearing loss without even noticing yourself.

Because hearing loss is a gradual process, it’s always a good idea to check your hearing even before you notice any problems to track any changes and take precautions before it becomes a problem.

Unusual Foreign Bodies in the Ear, Nose & Throat

Posted by Advanced Specialty Care on Jan 11, 2019 4:20:59 PM

Ticks in ears and batteries in noses. You'd be surprised by the types of foreign objects ENT doctors remove from someone's ear, nose and throat on a regular basis, especially children!

ENT specialist, Dr. Jeffrey Monroe, recounts some of the most bizarre, dangerous and downright weird objects that he's removed from ears, noses and throats over the years. 

Things can get stuck in people’s ears, nose or throat in a variety of ways. Sometimes it's accidental and uncontrollable, other times it may be the result of a curious child innocently sticking something in their nose or ear. Either scenario can be equally scary for the patient and their parent or caregiver.

Audiologist, Jocelyn Dore of Advanced Specialty Care, illustrates how and why hearing loss can impact a child's speech and language development if left untreated and why early intervention is so important.

The weather is still warm which means you may still be wearing less layers, but that doesn't necessarily apply to your ears! Before you tackle yard work, crank up the tunes, watch the big game or hop on your motorcycle, make sure you aren’t putting your hearing at risk.

Posted by Advanced Specialty Care on Aug 1, 2018 2:28:23 PM
