Why Doctors Need to Regularly Check Their Hearing

Apr 12, 2011 by

It is important for everyone to get their hearing tested regularly, but there are some people who need to be even more aware of the status of their hearing. For exmaple, like a dermatologist that just realized he needed glasses. Upon seeing how much more clear the world was to him when he put the glasses on, he wondered if he had ever missed any skin issues before. Doctors who constantly are listening to patients cannot let hearing become an issue.

Men and women who are cardiologists or anesthesiologists have jobs where hearing is extremely important. Cardiologists listen to the heart and try to hear any abnormalities. They cannot afford to have any form of hearing loss. Anesthesiologists listen to peoples breathing; again they cannot afford to miss something because their hearing is not 100 percent.  For any professional who has to listen to their patient to ensure their health, their hearing ability is extremely important.

If you are in the health profession, do not let the importance of your hearing fall to the back burner. It is just as important to you as it is for your patients that you are aware of your hearing and its needs. Scheduling an appointment with an audiologist to screen your hearing will not take much time out of a busy day. It can only benefit you in your career, so why let it wait?
