Cardiovascular Health Affects Hearing – August 2015 – The Hearing Review

Raymond Hull, Ph.D is an Audiology Neuroscience researcher and a professor of communication sciences and disorders at Wichita State University, who has analyzed research from 70 studies and has come to the conclusion that cardiovascular health affects hearing and the ability to understand speech. Cardiovascular disease can inhibit the blood and nutrient supply to the inner ear, which transduces sound into an electro-chemical signal. The brain also depends on healthy blood flow since the auditory portions of the brain interpret what we hear so that it can be analyzed and understood.
