Emma Cashman Discusses Ear Health with Dermot & Dave

Our Consultant ENT Surgeon Emma Cashman discusses ear health on TodayFM recently with Dermot and Dave for a Mind Yourself Now Special. Emma was speaking all things ear health including the most common ear conditions seen on a day-to-day basis and sharing her top tips for looking after your ears.

Hearing loss, tinnitus, vertigo and ear infection are just some of the ear conditions patients commonly present with. The main symptoms of hearing loss are a ringing or buzzing in your ears and difficulty hearing higher frequencies.

“In ear” ear phones are one of the leading factors in hearing loss as our usage has increased in length and at high volumes. 15% of teenagers have evidence of noise induced hearing loss in a recent study in the USA.

Emma’s top tip for your ears is avoiding anything that is too loud, too long, too close!
