  • Effects of intense noise on people and hearing loss. (
  • This possibility has not been directly tested, although it is well-known that intense noise exposure can enhance production of ROS and generate oxidative stress. (
  • The generic, statistical physical derivation of this noise is called the fluctuation-dissipation theorem, where generalized impedance or generalized susceptibility is used to characterize the medium. (
  • The degree of risk is affected by the intensity (loudness) and the frequency (pitch) of the noise, as well as the duration and pattern of exposure and the individual susceptibility to hearing impairment (CCOH, 2009). (
  • Simultaneous and even successive exposure to certain of these agents along with noise can greatly increase susceptibility to noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) both for humans and laboratory animals [3-4]. (
  • The annoyance, fatigue, interference with speech, and hearing losses caused by noise depend a good deal upon its frequency, or "pitch" (measured in cycles per second) and upon its "loudness" or intensity (measured in decibels). (
  • Fortunately, cockpits are usually located in areas where noise intensity is tolerable during cruise (85 to 95 decibels). (
  • [15] Noise-induced hearing loss can be caused by prolonged exposure to noise levels above 85 A-weighted decibels . (
  • Physical ear discomfort to noise exposure starts from sound pressure level of 80-100 decibels (dB). (
  • Noise is often recorded as decibels dB (A) to approximate how the human ears respond to noise. (
  • Excessive noise" also includes incessant or repeated sounds that have the effect of disturbing the welfare, comfort, peace and quiet of the community, or any sound in excess of 85 decibels. (

  • Finally, workers were exposed to risks of hearing loss from sustained noise levels over exposure limits. (
  • Some may develop hearing loss, especially for high-frequency sounds, or tinnitus ("ringing in the ears"), or both, as a result of their noise exposure. (
  • Furthermore, high-frequency hearing losses are seen not only with noise exposure, but also at older ages (presbycusis), although the specific patterns of loss are generally distinguishable until 60-70 years of age (see Chapter 2 ). (
  • Lower fidelity recordings can be made at 3.75 or even 1.875 ips, which allows more recording time on a given tape, but at the cost of adding more high-frequency noise. (
  • That means a signal that is primarily low-frequency does not necessarily require noise reduction, instead, one can simply clip off all the higher frequencies in a low-pass filter and the hiss will largely disappear. (
  • Thermal noise in an ideal resistor is approximately white, meaning that the power spectral density is nearly constant throughout the frequency spectrum (however see the section below on extremely high frequencies). (
  • The extent of cochlear impairment is related to CO dose [9], but the loss of outer hair cells (OHCs) tends to occur preferentially in the base (highfrequency region) of the cochlea, even when noise energy is maximal within a relatively low (4.0-8.0 kHz) frequency band [7]. (

  • Environmental noise was the subject of a formal OECD test. (
  • Noise screens for engines were successfully developed, but the dominant environmental noise arises from exhausts, where a balance must be found between silencer effectiveness and power loss. (
  • The much louder noise of a jet engine may cause very rapid hearing fatigue. (
