Occupational deafness has become a fashionable diagnosis for hearing loss in anyone who has worked amid noise.

Occupational deafness often occurs along with hearing loss for reasons that may not be easy to diagnose. The extent of hearing loss in an individual case must be reasonable for the noise exposure sustained before a diagnosis is made. Appears in 14 books from Page 83 - Occupational deafness" means permanent partial or permanent total loss of hearing of one or both ears due to prolonged exposure to noise in employment.

occupational deafness in individual cases is based on all hearing loss, not just that due to noise injury. However there seems no reason in logic or fairness why the compensation threshold for occupational deafness, nor the opportunity for aggregation should be different from other prescribed Size: KB.

Occupational deafness is a type of sensorineural hearing loss. It is caused by prolonged exposure to high level of noise at work.

The Occupational deafness book passes through the outer ear, ear canal and ear drum and enters into the middle and inner ears. The noise damages the auditory cells of the inner ear. Once destroyed, these auditory cells would not recover.

Exposure to loud noise continues to be one of the largest causes of hearing loss in the adult population, already affecting some 15 percent of Americans between the ages of 20 and There have been a number of discoveries and advances that have increased our understanding of the mechanisms of Noise-Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL).5/5(1).

Occupational Chemical-Induced Hearing Loss, Hearing Loss, Sadaf Naz, IntechOpen, DOI: / Available from: Adrian Fuente and Bradley McPherson (March 28th ).Author: Adrian Fuente, Bradley McPherson. Hearing loss can be temporary or permanent (29) and is usually bilateral (33).

Temporary or permanent threshold shift Exposure to loud sounds for any length of time causes fatigue of the ear’s sensory cells, resulting in temporary hearing loss or tinnitus (a ringing sensation in the ear).

This is termed. Surveillance is vital to occupational hearing loss (OHL) prevention. It makes possible the establishment of estimates for the prevalence and incidence of hearing loss within various industries.

Surveillance also enables NIOSH to identify high risk groups, guide prevention and research efforts, and evaluate the success or failure of interventions.

Occupational hearing loss (OHL) is hearing loss that occurs as a result of occupational hazards, such as excessive noise and ototoxic is a common workplace hazard, and recognized as the risk factor for noise-induced hearing loss and tinnitus, but it is not the only risk factor that can result in a work-related hearingnoise-induced hearing loss can result from.

Noise and occupational deafness are not new subjects. An Old Testament reference to blacksmiths experiencing ringing in their ears has been interpreted by some as a reference to tinnitus due to their noise exposure.

Occupational deafness was accurately diagnosed by Dr Fosbroke 1 writing in The Lancet in In spite of this, the condition was Author: Ian Acton. Michael Greenberg is Professor of Emergency Medicine and Professor of Public Health at Drexel University College of Medicine, Philadelphia.

He is a qualified occupational physician and author of two books: Occupational, Industrial and Environmental Toxicology (Mosby) and Greenberg's Atlas of Emergency Medicine (Lippincott Williams and Wilkins).

It concentrates on recent advances in the understanding of mechanisms associated with NIHL. the book points to the future use of therapeutic antioxidants and other agents as a potential protection for the inner ear. for an occupational health practitioner, this is one for the reference library.” (Ian J.

Lawson, Occupational Medicine. the features that characterize a conductive hearing loss. They should also be placed in. context with the many other conditions that can affect the ear discussed throughout this. book, some of which are summarized in Appendix : Robert Thayer Sataloff, Joseph Sataloff.This book and CD-ROM is intended for occupational hygienists and other occupational health and safety personnel as an introduction to the subject and as a handbookl.

It provides an overview of the evaluation, prevention and control of exposure to noise at the workplace, with a view to preventing noise-induced hearing loss.Hearing loss requirements: The hearing loss, being the average of hearing losses measured by audiometry over the 1, 2 and 3 kHz frequencies, should fulfill the following requirement: Binaural hearing loss - sensorineural hearing loss amounting to not less than 40 dB in each ear, where such loss of at least one ear is due to noise; or.
