Description

The Hearing Conservation Team focuses on ways to identify the early stages of noise-induced damage to the human ear.

Our current research involves the evaluation of new methods for evoking otoacoustic emissions that are thought to be (a) sensitive to the early stages of noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) and (b) a measure of susceptibility to NIHL. Our approach is to evaluate these methods both in the laboratory (for validity, reliability, and sensitivity to temporary noise-induced changes) and in the field with noise-exposed at-risk personnel (for detecting the early stages of permanent noise-induced changes).
