Let 25 years of sleep research help you sleep better and feel healthier. Your brain responds to sounds that it hears. Sleep Sound plays back nature sounds, music and therapy sounds based on Delta, Alpha or Beta brainwaves that coax your brain to match these frequencies and enter healthy states of sleep or relaxation.

Why is newborn hearing screening important?

  • Hearing loss is invisible.
  • 2–3 per 1,000 babies will have hearing loss at birth.
  • Untreated hearing loss can cause speech and language delays.
  • Early access to sound through hearing aids and other technology will help prevent speech and language delays.

Be aware of over-the-counter and prescribed medicines that may damage your hearing such as:

  • Aspirin, when large doses (8 to 12 pills a day) are taken.
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as ibuprofen and naproxen.
  • Certain antibiotics, especially aminoglycosides (such as gentamicin, streptomycin, and neomycin). Hearing-related side effects from these antibiotics are most common in people who have kidney disease or who already have ear or hearing problems.
  • Loop diuretics used to treat high blood pressure and heart failure, such as furosemide (Lasix) or bumetanide.
  • Medicines used to treat cancer, including cyclophosphamide, cisplatin, and bleomycin.

The types of hearing care professionals you might encounter in seeking help with your hearing loss differ in both their education and their skills:

One key difference between an audiologist and a hearing instrument specialist is the minimum amount of education required & scope of practice:

Audiologists must currently earn a professional degree (Doctor of Audiology, or Au.D.) which typically involves 4 years of academic and clinical training in audiology, following a traditional 4-year bachelor’s degree. That’s a total of eight years of education and practicum.
