Ear Infections in Children reduced with Better Air Quality

Best Syndication News

[Best Syndication News] Ear infections in children are one of the most commonly seen problems in the doctor's office. A study conducted by UCLA and Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston found that air quality improvements may reduce the amount of ear infections that kids may have. The study will appear in the February issue of Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery.

The researchers looked at data of 120,060 children from the National Health Interview Survey from the years of 1997 and 2006. They looked specifically for number of times a child had ear infections (3 or more a year), respiratory allergy, and seizure activity, which were both studied as control conditions.

The researchers then collected the data from the EPA's air quality data on carbon monoxide, nitrous dioxide, sulfur dioxide and particulate matter for the same time periods. They noticed a pattern as the air quality improved there was less cases of ear infections.

People dismiss tinnitus, or a ringing in the ears, as being all in their heads. Maybe it is, but it's not a figment of the imagination, it's in the muscles and bones of our jaws. While it is possible it's just a psychosomatic (i.e. imaginary) effect, you may be experiencing a potentially debilitating condition called TMJ or temporomandibular joint syndrome.

TMJS? TMD? MPD?

Temporomandibular joint syndrome (TMJS), temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD), and mysofacial pain dysfunction (MPD) are three different names for one set of symptoms. These symptoms of TMJ/TMD include:

Hearing loss from Earbuds – Dr Oz answers questions about MP3 Players and Headphones on Oprah TV show

[Best Syndication ] One question on yesterday’s Oprah TV show with Dr. Oz was about hearing loss and listening to your favorite music with earphones.

The question, if she was to listen to her iPod with earbuds all the time, would she lose her hearing? She confessed that she listened to her MP3 music almost everywhere that she went, and she liked to wear her earbuds which go into the ear.

Dr. Oz asked people on the street if they knew what a cochlea was, and were you could find it. People were not sure and pointed to every location on their body. The cochlea is found in your ear and has tiny hairs in it that help translate sounds into messages that your brain can understand. Loud sounds overtime can cause damage to the tiny hairs and can cause permanent hearing loss. So while you may be young today enjoying the music full blast, slowly you could be damaging your hearing and won’t realize it until you get older.

A protein was found in genetically deaf mice may help to treat deafness in humans and it could be reversible. Emory University School of Medicine researchers discovered that a protein called connexin26 may lead to reversing hearing loss in genetic cases. The study was first published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

"There are millions of deaf people affected by mutations in this one gene, connexin26," Xi (Erick) Lin, PhD, associate professor of otolaryngology and cell biology at Emory University School of Medicine, was lead author of the study said. "Congenital hearing loss is one of the most common human genetic birth defects, and that is why in almost all the states universal newborn hearing screening is mandated by law [including Georgia]."

Researchers say that antibiotic ear drops work faster and better than their oral counterparts for ear infections. After evaluating 80 children ages 6 through 12, Texas scientists say that there is a “growing body of evidence” that supports the use of ear drops over pills.

They said that antibiotic ear drops performed better and faster in treating middle ear infections in children with ear tubes than merely taking oral antibiotics such as swallowing a pill or liquid. Dr. Peter Roland said "With the use of ear drops, you can put more potent medicine just where you need it." Roland is the chairman of otolaryngology at UT (University of Texas) Southwestern and one of the study’s authors.

Sleeping With Tinnitus

One of the biggest challenges that I hear from Tinnitus (constant ringing in the ears) patients is their inability to get a good night's sleep. I used to have this problem as well, so I am very familiar with how frustrating that is. Imagine what it might be like to sleep on a busy airport runway with jets taking off all around you. That's what it's like for me. For many people who suffer from this debilitating disease, they can be kept awake by constant hissing, roaring, pulsing, whooshing, chirping, whistling and even clicking sounds that interfere with their regular sleep patterns.

Unfortunately, the less sleep you get, the more your tinnitus will bother you. Why this is I'm not sure, except to know that if you're tired it's much harder to keep motivated and do the things you need to do to keep your mind off tinnitus. I do know, however, that it's very important to get at least 8 hours of sleep each night in order to avoid what often feels like an increase in the tinnitus volume.

Tinnitus - For Whom the Tinnitus Bell Tolls...and Tolls...and...Tolls

How many of you remember that high pitched ringing or buzzing in your ears as you left the concert, dance or loud club gig? Unless you live under a rock I know you’ve experienced it. For the vast majority of people this is simply a temporary sensation that wears off in a few short hours or less. But for many people, especially musicians and those with prolonged exposure to loud noises, this can be a permanent and painful ordeal. I know, because I have it. It’s called “tinnitus.” And like me, it already affects an estimated 15% of the population, with the numbers growing at an alarming rate.

The focus of today’s article is on those who already have tinnitus. Because, for those that don’t have it, all you need to do for the most part is to protect your ears with ear plugs or bunched up tissue paper. Sure, there are other ways of contracting tinnitus like; over the counter medicines, viruses, nerve damage etc. But, the overwhelming cause of tinnitus is exposure to loud noise which is thankfully 100% preventable.
