During the examination, the doctor found that there was a blood clot on Mr. Liu s left ear canal. After cleaning the blood vessels, he found that Mr. Liu s eardrum had been perforated.

Old Chinese medicine reminds you that when listening to music, you must pay attention to both the listening time and the sound intensity.

The sound exceeds 60 decibels, and continuous listening for more than 3 hours may cause noise-induced hearing loss and suffer from noise-induced deafness. The doctor said that this is worthy of attention from friends who like music. Earphones should pay more attention and learn Ears relax and rest quietly.

The former is mainly caused by the instantaneous exposure of high-intensity impulse noise. It is more common after detonation and is also called deafness. Acute acoustic injury can be treated as sudden deafness, while chronic acoustic injury is hearing damage caused by long-term continuous strong noise stimulation, which is difficult to cure and can only be prevented. Therefore, it is important to raise the awareness that noise is harmful to hearing.
