FREE TEST FOR EVERYONE
OMÜ Ear, Nose and Throat Specialist Dr. Figen Başar said, “We aim for a social responsibility and awareness to draw attention to hearing health. We try to convey to citizens how important hearing is and when a problem occurs, we have brought our self-service hearing testers in the area we set up in Bulvar AVM. Everyone can test their own. In this way, they receive information about their hearing health, “he said.
EARLY DIAGNOSIS IS VERY IMPORTANT
“We will all have hearing loss one day,” Başar said, “We say where to apply for people with hearing loss. We also answer the questions of citizens coming here. Early diagnosis of hearing loss is very important. The sooner hearing loss is detected, the sooner we can recover the hearing pathways. “For people, their understanding is not impaired. In individuals, hearing is impaired, and then comprehension is impaired, because hearing is an event in central areas. The sooner we get to know the disconnection, the easier the treatment process is.”
TALKING WITH CONTINUOUS PHONE MAY CAUSE Hearing Loss
Talking about the factors that cause hearing loss, Dr. Figen Başar said, “There are new hearing screenings in our country. It is carried out by the Ministry of Health. We also inform the citizens about it. Hearing loss in newborn babies is very important. Because the brain maturation should be in a very short time. Therefore, citizens should apply to health institutions immediately in any deficiency in their babies. Noisy environments are among the most common factors that cause hearing loss. Continuous listening with mobile phones or headphones, systemic diseases, kidney disorders, diabetes, blood pressure problems, some medications and hearing loss due to aging can also be experienced. ” Recep MOL
