In 2015 we made more than 3,000 hearing tests and 29.3% of those screenings did not pass the first test requiring additional attention.
Watch your hearing, it is important!

 

First Tour of Hearing and Dental Health 2016

In collaboration with the Kiwanis Club Las Perlas, more than 50 volunteers included otolaryngologists, speech pathologists, dentists and people of great heart, we could provide free hearing and dental exams to more than 100 children in the community of Nueva Arenosa in La Chorrera. Also we gave an educational talk about hearing health through the School for Parents. In this way we started the year bringing health to those in need. Thanks to all who came together to make this possible.

Next Hearing Health tours:
Caimito Capira - April 2016
Yaviza in Darien - July 2016
If you want to participate as a volunteer with us just write to contacto@fundacionoiresvivir.org

This year, the Baby Fair trade show had less noise and more Health.

For the fourth consecutive year, we provided valuable information about the importance of hearing care for the Baby Fair held in Atlapa from 15 to 17 January. In this way we ensure that more children have the opportunity to become the Hearing Screening, screening test to assess hearing loss. This year also was held within the fair # Solo1Minuto of Silence, to educate about the importance of protecting hearing the noise. Thanks to Expo Events for the space we yield every year to participate and thanks to our dear volunteers who supported us.

Hearing Tests, Hearing Aid Placement and Speech Therapy available in our Clinic from Monday to Saturday.

Cochlear Implant INTERNATIONAL DAY FEBRUARY 25 

This day we honor Dr. Graeme Clark, creator of this wonderful invention that has already helped thousands of people. The cochlear implant is a device that transforms acoustic signals into electrical signals that stimulate the auditory nerve, allowing people to listen implanted. It has an internal component that is placed through surgery and an external component that is used in the head. It may be unilateral or bilateral and can be used by children and adults. After cochlear implant placement come a long period of oral rehabilitation to teach patients to talk. Not all deaf people are candidates for a cochlear implant, so will the doctors and specialists who define this. For more information: https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Implante_coclear
