Importance: There have been concerns about increasing levels of hearing impairment in children and adolescents, especially in relation to noise exposure, because even mild levels of hearing loss can affect educational outcomes. Objective: To further characterize changes in prevalence of hearing loss and noise exposures in the US pediatric population over time. Design, Setting, and Participants: This is a retrospective analysis of demographic and audiometric data from the Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES III, 1988-1994), NHANES 2005-2006, NHANES 2007-2008, and NHANES 2009-2010...

BACKGROUND: Platinum-based therapy, including cisplatin, carboplatin, oxaliplatin or a combination of these, is used to treat a variety of paediatric malignancies. Unfortunately, one of the most important adverse effects is the occurrence of hearing loss or ototoxicity. There is a wide variation in the reported prevalence of platinum-induced ototoxicity and the associated risk factors. More insight into the prevalence of and risk factors for platinum-induced hearing loss is essential in order to develop less ototoxic treatment protocols for the future treatment of children with cancer and to develop adequate follow-up protocols for childhood cancer survivors treated with platinum-based therapy...

Exposures to noise and resulting noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) are not well understood in the dental profession. Previous studies have focused primarily on practicing dental professionals, and have often evaluated hearing loss in the absence of adequate noise exposure assessment. This study was conducted to evaluate exposures among students and staff working in four clinics within a major U.S. university dental school, and to compare these exposures to those among dental professionals in a private general-practice clinic...

OBJECTIVE: Most school-aged children experience exposure to hazardous sound levels via high-risk noise activities (e.g. loud music/concerts, firearms). Little information exists regarding factors influencing pediatric engagement in these activities and use of hearing protection devices. This study explores effects of age, gender, and attitudes toward noise on participation in acoustic risk-taking behaviors and hearing conservation practices in children and adolescents. DESIGN: Cross-sectional...

In this study the authors investigate the sound pressure levels produced by crying children and discuss the possible adverse effects that direct exposure may impose on a tending guardian or healthcare professional. Sound intensity levels from various pediatric patients (N = 26) were measured under two segregate conditions, one imitating the exposure of an examining physician and the other resembling that of parental guardians. Interestingly, all of the recorded sound levels fell between 99-120 dB(A) of sound pressure; children presenting the greatest risk for intense cries with potentially harmful sound intensities were between the ages of 9 months and 6 years...

Cisplatin is a commonly-used chemotherapeutic agent that is highly-effective against a variety of pediatric cancers. Unfortunately, it may lead to ototoxicity, with serious consequences on the quality of life of survivors. Patients remain at risk of progression of ototoxicity even after completion of treatment. We report the case of a medulloblastoma survivor with previously documented normal hearing, who developed significant hearing loss and tinnitus following exposure to excessive noise at a nightclub three years after completion of treatment...

Prolonged exposure to high-intensity noise has been associated with noise-induced hearing loss, hypertension, psychological stress, and irritability. The National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health considers levels above 85 decibels (dB) as harmful. In the study reported here, we sought to determine whether noise levels in orthopedic cast clinics were within safe limits. A calibrated noise dosimeter was worn by cast technologists during 7 adult and 7 pediatric cast clinics, and noise levels were recorded...

HYPOTHESIS: Impairments of the medial olivocochlear system (MOCS) increase the risk of environmentally induced auditory neuropathy spectrum disorder (ANSD). BACKGROUND: ANSD is a problem in the neural transmission of auditory information that accounts for 10% to 15% of the cases of pediatric hearing loss. The underlying mechanisms of the disorder remain poorly understood, but noise exposure is an important risk factor. The goal of this study was to identify environmental conditions and genetic predispositions that lead to ANSD...

PURPOSE: In addition to sounds from dental equipment, pediatric dentists are exposed to noise produced by precooperative and/or noncooperative children. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the daily personal noise exposure of a pediatric dentistry resident while treating children in a teaching clinic to determine both comprehensive noise doses and peak noise occurrences as well as to assess the risk for noise-induced hearing loss. METHODS: A noise dosimeter (Noise-Pro DLX) was used to measure the total personal noise exposure dose using the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Hearing Conservation Amendment criteria and the US National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) occupational noise exposure revised criteria...

Young people are likely to experience noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL), as the use of personal listening devices and other damaging factors (e.g., video games) increases. Little research has examined the role of school health personnel in the prevention and early identification of hearing impairment. A 32-item, valid and reliable survey was developed regarding elementary and middle school nurses' practices concerning hearing loss screening and prevention. The survey instrument was based on the Stages of Change theory and the Health Belief Model...

Though brainstem audiometry is one of the most important investigations in pediatric audiology, it often necessitates sedation or general anaesthetics, especially in newborns and infants. Melatonin, inducing natural sleep without the risks of sedation, has been successfully used to induce sleep prior to EEG investigations. 250 children (142 male, 108 female) with suspected hearing loss underwent ABR (auditory brainstem responses) tests in melatonin-induced sleep. Click-induced and notched-noise ABR tests were performed...

AIM: An investigation was made to reveal whether suspicion of occupational hearing loss can be satisfactorily determined by an otolaryngologist or workplace audiological measurement. These were compared with a formal audiometrical assessment at a university clinic. METHODS AND RESULTS: A retrospective study was made of 95 cases of noise induced hearing loss. A total of 78 individuals were investigated by an otolaryngologist and 70 by workplace audiometry. Using workplace audiometry, 27% of the tests showed a reduction in working capacity of at least 20%...

Progressive hearing loss during childhood caused by a hearing-aid induced deterioration has been discussed controversely since 1939. However, it is unchallenged that in cases of profound sensorineural hearing loss in infancy and early childhood powerful hearing aids are necessary for auditory and speech development. Due to an increase of progressive hearing losses during the last 4 years, we discussed the possible causes and the probability of hearing aid induced progressions once more. Our study consists of two investigations: First, all patients since 1993 suffering from progressive hearing loss among all hearing impaired children in the department of Audiology and Pedaudiology of the ENT-Hospital of Cologne were taken into account...

Recent reports have established that the ring of a cordless telephone is sufficient to produce hearing loss. In the present study, the intensity and frequency spectrum of the ring signal for three cordless telephones known to be involved in reported cases of acoustic trauma are presented. The potential hazard to hearing is reviewed, the implications for the pediatric community discussed, and the recommendation made that unmodified cordless telephones be kept out of the reach of children.
