Circuits talk: Take good care of your Hearing, by Dr Andrew Sciberras

19 October 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Date and time 
Monday 19th October, 2020, 6:30pm

 

The aim of this talk is to create awareness on the damage caused by excessive noise. About 1.1 billion teenagers and young adults are at risk of hearing loss due to the unsafe use of personal audio devices, including smartphones, and exposure to damaging sound levels at noisy entertainment venues such as nightclubs, bars and sporting events, according to World Health Organization. Hearing loss has potentially devastating consequences for physical and mental health, education and employment.

Dr Sciberras discusses the effects of noise to the auditory system and other contributing factors that in the presence of noise will cause more harm. He will also explain ways to prevent hearing loss due to noise exposure and to reduce the possibility of tinnitus.

Brian Vella aka Junior B will also share how years of active DJing have had an adverse effect on his hearing and how he has overcome this condition.
