Your Heart and Hearing Health

It has been advised that those who have hearing loss have their cardiovascular health checked and those who have a cardiovascular disease to get their hearing tested.

The Heart and Hearing Connection:

 

Blood flow is very important to the inner ear. A health cardiovascular system - a person’s heart, arteries, and veins - has a positive effect on hearing, studies show. Conversely, hearing loss can occur when there is inadequate blood flow and trauma to the blood vessels of the inner ear.

The hearing loss associated with cardiovascular disease is sudden onset due to the cells surrounding the Cochlear not being able to get the blood supply they need. This sudden hearing loss can be a good indication of cardiovascular disease so it is advised to have both your hearing and heart checked when experiencing sudden onset hearing loss.

As part of your medical care, you should have your hearing tested to make sure you are heart and hearing healthy! Those who have been diagnosed with a heart condition should be particularly vigilant and have their hearing checked regularly.
