According to a scientific source, a team of professionals has discovered a feasible and simple remedy for noise-induced hearing loss.
A new study has discovered that regular loud noises generate fluid accumulation in the inner ear and provide a simple therapeutic solution for noise-induced hearing loss.
According to research, 12 percent or more of the world's population is in danger of noise-induced hearing loss.
Loud noises can induce a loss of auditory nerve cells in the inner ear, which are in charge of conveying acoustic information to the brain, resulting in hearing loss. However, the mechanism behind this hearing loss remains unknown.
Recent research relates this sort of inner ear nerve injury to a disease known as endolymphatic hydrops, which is an accumulation of fluid in the inner ear, demonstrating that both occur at noise exposure levels that individuals may face in their daily lives.
Researchers also discovered that addressing the ensuing fluid accumulation with an easily accessible saline solution reduced nerve damage in the inner ear.
The level of inner ear fluid in the cochlea, the hollow, spiral-shaped bone located in the inner ear, was measured using an imaging method known as optical coherence tomography.
He also feels the study sheds fresh light on Meniere's disease, an inner-ear ailment that causes vertigo, ringing in the ears (tinnitus), and hearing loss.
