5. Safe Sound

The Safe and Sound Protocol is an evidence-based therapeutic tool designed to reset the nervous system and return it to safety. Designed to work with other therapeutic approaches and modalities, the SSP features specially filtered music that stimulates the vagus nerve.

Developed by Dr. Stephen Porges, founder of the Polyvagal Theory, the Safe and Sound Protocol is a non-invasive acoustic vagus nerve stimulator that helps your clients connect with themselves, others, and the world from a foundation of physiological safety.

The Safe & Sound Protocol (SSP) is the only practical application of Polyvagal Theory, and is designed to improve sound sensitivities and auditory processing, behavioral state regulation, and social engagement behaviors through specially-filtered music.

Based on hierarchical recruitment of the ANS, the SSP trains the middle ear muscles to tune-in to cues of safety signaled by the frequencies of human voice, which stimulates the social engagement system through the neural network associated with listening.

Many clinicians have noted results after one session, and after completion of the full program (which can be titrated based on individual client need and receptivity), the ability for their clients to better regulate and connect as a result of physiologically retuning their nervous system toward safety.

Air New Zealand have used the song in their in-flight safety video for 2014, while the Barcelona's Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB) has used it in its dance video to raise awareness and support for research into diseases such as cancer and metastasis, Alzheimer's and diabetes.[12]

Their colleagues who arrived on Soyuz MS-22, NASA astronaut Frank Rubio and Roscosmos cosmonauts Sergey Prokopyev and Dmitri Petelin, should have returned home themselves by now, but their mission has been extended for several months because Soyuz MS-22 is not considered safe to bring them back to Earth.

The evaluation, funded by the Office of National Drug Control Policy, also found that the number of issue-based and general events, such as safety task force events, block parties and clean-ups, were associated with reductions in both non-violent and violent crime.

Withstanding temperatures up to 2150F (1177C), Safe'n'Sound is non-combustible and will not produce toxic smoke or promote flame spreading, even when directly exposed to fire. This adds valuable extra time for people to reach safety and for fire services personnel to arrive.

This five hour music therapy was specially designed to strengthen brain functioning and aid in calming the nervous system. Research has shown that individuals who participate in the safe and sound protocol have shown improvements in the following areas:

Sometimes, the little things make the biggest difference. That is why Safe and Sound Home Care is here to help aging and elderly senior citizens, disabled individuals, and injured persons with daily tasks in their homes. Our quality caregivers, homemakers, and sitters provide a number of specialized in-home care services to make it easier for your loved one to maintain his or her independence, and give you peace of mind about their care and safety. Some of the most commonly requested services include:

If you need to raise your voice to speak to someone 3 feet away, noise levels might be over 85 decibels. Several sound-measuring instruments are available to measure the noise levels in a workspace. These include sound level meters, noise dosimeters, and octave band analyzers.

The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) Sound Level Meter App is one tool available to the public to download on mobile iOS devices that measures sound levels in the workplace and provides noise exposure parameters to help reduce occupational noise-induced hearing loss.

OSHA requires employers to implement a hearing conservation program when noise exposure is at or above 85 decibels averaged over 8 working hours, or an 8-hour time-weighted average (TWA). Hearing conservation programs strive to prevent initial occupational hearing loss, preserve and protect remaining hearing, and equip workers with the knowledge and hearing protection devices necessary to safeguard themselves.

Exposure to loud noise kills the nerve endings in our inner ear. More exposure will result in more dead nerve endings. The result is permanent hearing loss that cannot be corrected through surgery or with medicine. Noise-induced hearing loss limits your ability to hear high frequency sounds and understand speech, which seriously impairs your ability to communicate. Hearing aids may help, but they do not restore your hearing to normal.

The purpose of the inner ear is to convert mechanical sound waves to neural impulses that can be recognized by the brain. The sensory receptors that are responsible for the initiation of neural impulses in the auditory nerve are contained in the cochlea of the inner ear.

Noise and vibration are both fluctuations in the pressure of air (or other media) which affect the human body. Vibrations that are detected by the human ear are classified as sound. We use the term 'noise' to indicate unwanted sound.

Noise is measured in units of sound pressure levels called decibels, named after Alexander Graham Bell, using A-weighted sound levels (dBA). The A-weighted sound levels closely match the perception of loudness by the human ear. Decibels are measured on a logarithmic scale which means that a small change in the number of decibels results in a huge change in the amount of noise and the potential damage to a person's hearing.

First Alert leads through innovation, with a celebrated history of new products and technologies, such as the first residential smoke alarm and the first battery powered CO alarm. The #1 brand in fire safety has built a legacy of trust and delivers unparalleled reliability in fire safety.

Melanie: On your [Safe and Sound] website, there are many ideas that can be implemented [in] schools to make them safer. What are your opinions on the [use] of bulletproof glass Is this affordable for schools

As always, it is critically important for schools to include local police and fire officials when considering any safety enhancements. Approaching school safety decisions as a team, represented by many stakeholders and perspectives, can build strong community support and engagement in school safety.

The SSP protocol contains five hours of progressively filtered music. The frequencies gradually contract and expand in a dynamic way that generates cues of safety perceived through the ear not unlike the way a baby connects to a lullaby from the mother. Successive sessions allow the inner ear muscles to contract and release working the muscles the way you might in any work-out. Middle frequencies send cues of safety that support the ability to regulate the autonomous state. This really does put into perspective the impact of repeated ear infections in childhood, the low muscle tone of autistic individuals or the way trauma retunes the ear to focus on low frequencies to better detect threats rather than the more soothing frequencies of the human voice.
