Summary

Written in clear and accessible language, Occupational Hearing Loss provides a complete overview of the hazards of occupational noise exposure, causes of hearing loss, testing of hearing, criteria to distinguish occupational hearing loss, and more. Extensively re-written and updated, the book emphasizes medical and societal factors in its coverage of topics such as audiometry and who should do it, evoked response testing, and conductive and sensorineural hearing loss, as well as mixed, central, and functional hearing loss.

See what's new in the Third Edition:
  • New chapters on auditory evoked potentials, sudden sensorineural hearing loss, ear malignancies, and more
  • Expanded discussion on autoimmune inner ear disease, diagnosing occupational hearing loss, and more
  • Updated information on computerized audiometry, special hearing tests, and auditory processing disorders
  • Expanded chapter on problems associated with balance disorders and a review of modern evaluation techniques, including posturography
  • New material on systemic causes of hearing loss and co-factors associated with occupational hearing loss

    The authors' academic depth and experience in the field, combined with their ability to write clearly in language accessible to non-medical personnel, set this book apart. No other book available has the breadth, practical detail, or comprehensive scope. A unique compendium of information about specific problems of occupational hearing loss and hearing conservation, the book is both a balanced reference and easy-to-use guide to protecting the hearing of industrial workers.
