Ear, Nose, and Throat Health: What You Need To Know

Today marks the start of Ear, Nose, and Throat Consciousness Week. Celebrated every December 3-9 as mandated by Proclamation no. 501, this highlights the significance of early detection, prevention, and treatment of ear, nose, and throat; including head and neck disease. 

Ears, Nose, and Throat Consciousness (ENT) is essential to workplace wellness. Being well-rested, present, and engaged allows the brain to work collaboratively with the body, giving you renewed focus, clarity, and creativity.

Healthy employees make for a more effective organization. Understanding your employees’ health issues and recognizing warning signs of illness is essential in maximizing employee productivity and minimizing healthcare, sick leaves and attrition.

Let’s explore some health tips you should know about when it comes to your ears, nose, and throat!

Health Tips: The Ear

#1: Wear hearing protection

Wearing hearing protection can make a huge difference in protecting your eardrums. You may use this in loud events such as concerts, shooting ranges, or sporting events.

#2: Buy hearing aids

Hearing aids can significantly help individuals with minimal hearing. You’ll blend right in with entirely invisible or barely noticeable devices on the market today!

#3: Clean out the earwax

Getting your earwax cleaned out every so often by a physician will ensure you remain healthy. This will help prevent ear infections and even temporary tinnitus.

#4: Come in for a hearing screening

Ensuring you have normal hearing is essential in maintaining ear health, and having a hearing screening is one way to gauge this.

Health Tips: The Nose

#1: Flush out the nose and sinuses

For those with allergies or chronic sinusitis, it may be best to rinse the sinuses more often. Make sure to use filtered water and not tap water when doing this.

#2: Get a proper diagnosis

To ensure you’re appropriately diagnosed, talk to your doctor or ENT specialist about receiving an allergy test.

#3: Balloon sinuplasty

A balloon sinuplasty is a non-invasive treatment for chronic sinusitis involving using a device to inflate the sinuses, opening the passageways for better mucus flow.

#4: Avoidance

Knowing what you’re allergic to and avoiding them can save you a lot of trouble. Pollen, dust, and mold are all things we may encounter daily and must be careful with.

Health Tips: The Throat

#1: Check your reflux

Acid reflux and GERD have the potential to not only cause esophageal cancer but also damage the lining of the esophagus. This can be done in the ENT Institute, where proper equipment to check for acid levels are available.

#2: Drink plenty of water

Drinking water is good for our entire system, protecting our throat and vocal cords to keep them as healthy as possible.

#3: See a speech therapist

Difficulty swallowing food or issues with speech can be dangerous when eating and drinking, and must therefore be attended to immediately by a professional. Don’t hesitate to make an appointment when encountering such conditions.
