In today's podcast we review the topic of noise and the harmful effects of environmental sound exposure on developing ears. We review how to minimize potential damage from sound, picking appropriate headphones and toys. We discuss screening for hearing loss at routine well child visits and some easy tips to implement at home. 

This episode was written by Dr. Dean Blumberg and Dr. Lena van der List.  We thank Dr. Jamie Funamura, a pediatric otolaryngologist at UC Davis Children’s Hospital for reviewing this episode.
