Now in its fourth edition, Occupational Hearing Loss delivers 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. 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.

Brought together by experienced practitioners and written by experts with depth and experience in the field, this book is written clearly in language accessible to non-medical personnel. 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 an easy-to-use guide to protecting the hearing of industrial workers.

This title is an ideal read for any student or professional occupational physician, audiologist, health and safety engineer, industrial hygienist, and otolaryngologist.
