NEW AAP POLICY STATEMENT: Turn Down the Noise- How Children’s Hearing is Impacted

News release: https://www.eurekalert.org/news-releases/1004607/

2-3 p.m. ET, Walter E. Washington Convention Center, Room 206

The parent’s universal cry in response to loud music– “Turn that thing down!” — is well-founded, as evidence shows that children and teens risk hearing loss by cranking up their personal listening devices. What families may not realize is that children are exposed to potentially harmful noise from infancy and that the effects are cumulative over a lifetime. AAP is publishing a new policy statement, “Preventing Excessive Noise Exposure in Infants, Children, and Adolescents” and an accompanying technical report, Saturday Oct. 21 in Pediatrics. Authors Sophie J. Balk, MD, FAAP, and Brian K. Reilly, MD, FAAP, discuss the common sources and effects of noise, from infant sleep machines to fireworks during a session, “Noise 201: More than Headphones!”

Dietary interventions. Exercise. Medication. When and how should each of these be used to tackle overweight and obesity in children? Do they have any unintended consequences? How is obesity related to food insecurity and eating disorders? How does weight bias affect youths? Learn more about where pediatricians will tackle these questions during the national conference.

They might be inspired to give it a try, however, after learning how one of their colleagues has overcome attacks as she seeks to connect with patients and families.

This article provides information on other sessions that focus on nicotine and tobacco prevention and treatment, marijuana and other high-potency THC products, and pain management.

With the rate of students who are chronically absent from school nearly doubling post-pandemic, pediatricians can play a key role in ensuring the health and success of students. This article looks at a session for pediatricians seeking information on how to collaborate with families.
