Experts in private hearing healthcare, Hidden Hearing, have responded to a Swedish study that has explored the effects of noisy jobs on those with hearing loss.

(PRWEB UK) 7 January 2013

A recent Swedish study has found that people with reduced hearing can become tired and stressed a lot quicker than those with normal hearing, especially during and after work.

The study group consisted of teachers, day care personnel, industrial workers, administrators, receptionists and health and care personnel.

In jobs where it is important to hear, such as for teachers and health personnel, they reported becoming more tired despite doing the same amount of work as people with normal hearing ability. They also reported finding work assignments more strenuous than their normal hearing colleagues.

The study found that a noisy environment was more strenuous when solving mathematic assignments and making decisions based on maths. The study reveals how taxing it can be to listen for those who also have to interpret sounds.

A spokesperson for Hidden Hearing said:

“This research shows just how important it is to look after your hearing and get the best treatment to make life easier. Trying to hear in a noisy environment can be difficult and stressful, so it is worth booking a free appointment at your local Hidden Hearing Centre to see what the latest developments in hearing aids can offer you and what best suits your situation.”
